Question about Maytag 25.6 Cu. Ft. Side-by-Side Refrigerator with Thru-the-Door Ice and Water - White
Hi and welome to FixYa. I am Kelly.
You are experiencing an inlet water valve water bypass symptom. What is happening is that the inlet water valve is allowing water to drip into the ice maker after the harvest cycle has long since finished. This is a common failure and all brands of refrigerator that are more than 5 years old. Replacing the inlet water valve will correct the over-fill problem. (I actually had to do this on my own 8 year old Maytag refrigerator not 6 months ago.) If you provide a model number I can point you to several on line sources for the inlet water valve.
Or you can just enter your model number on the following links:

http://www.searspartsdirect.com/partsdirect/index.action (Use the "Find it fast" window in "Model; search")
http://www.repairclinic.com/Shop-For-Parts (enter your model number in the search window)
If you do not have an inline water filter I would recommend that you install one at the time you replace the inlet water valve. It will keep plumbing debris out of the now inlet water valve and ensure a longer service life for same.
Thanks for choosing FixYa,
