It is very possible that the water control valve on the rear of your refrigerator needs replaced. It would also be a good idea to install a pre-filter before the water gets to the water control valve. I believe the side of the valve that controls the water dispenser is stuck open slightly allowing water to drip. You can test by disconnecting the wires to the dispenser side and see if the drip stops. When you press dispense water the dual water control valve opens completely on the rear for the water to flow. If the seal inside is defective it will leak. Here are a couple places to finds the Dual Water control Valve
Just enter your part number or model number or click on the photo on the second site listed. They are both good suppliers. Let me know if this is helpful or if you need more help Thanks, Sea Breeze
