This should be automatic. What is the problem--too litte ice? Do you have a in line water filter out side of unit? Filter in the fridge? Check for dirty filter and you may fix the issue of not enough water getting thru.
Check the power to the valve actuator with a meter. If the power is not fluctuation (causing the valve to open and close quickly) then the problem is likely "water hammer" in the piping leading to the DW. Water hammer occurs when a fast flow of water turns a corner in the piping. The solution is too find where the pipe is vibrating and add support. Another way to eliminate water hammer is to install a shock tube on the pipe. It is filled with air and acts as a shock absorber when the water hammers. They are available at Home Depot, Lowes, plumbing supply places, etc. Another way to make a shock absorber is to install a tee in a horizontal part of the pipe with an 18 inch+ piece of pipe installed vertically and capped at the top. Air gets trapped in the vertical pipe and cushions the vibration. You might be able to do this in the space behind the DW before the pipe connects to the DW. The shock tube is smaller and does not have to be vertical so if space is an issue that may be the way to go.
Try slowly and carefully twisting the head phone plug in the jack while music is playing. If it starts coming in in a choppy manner, then you may need to a) resawder the jack down or b) get a new ipod. I'd recommend b.
You are describing a problem known as water hammer. This will ultimately cause damage somewhere in your plumbing system so it should be addressed. If you are handy you can install an air chamber near the sink. If you want more information let me know. good luck.
