Water is leaking from the bottom of the plastic housing below the dispenser area. Turning the icemaker off seems to resolve the problem until it's turned back on. Icemaker still works fine but water is leaking in the front while it's on.

Re: Water leaking from left side ice/water dispenser
If you describe a constant flow of water from the ice maker then the solenoid valve is either leaking by when it's upposed to be off or the motor module is stuck in the "fill" position. If it was stuck in fill you would be getting a LOT of water all the time so if you only have a trickle then the solenoid valve may be letting water leak by it. The diagram here shows the parts for a better idea of what you may need to look at (and where it's at).

The solenoid valve that controls the water dispenser is leaking internally. It will be a double valve (one for ice, the other for chilled water) located at the bottom of the frame in the back of the unit. To find it, just trace where the plastic tubes originate from.
Easy to replace.
These leaks are sometimes caused by particles getting trapped on the valve seat. This can be prevented by use of an inline water filter on the copper supply line.
there are 2 pipes going from the pump at the bottom of your unit ... 1 to the ice maker and the other to the filter for water. make sure the pip for the ice make is tight in the connector of the valve ... let me know...
water dispenser -Your water inlet valve on the back where the
water supply comes in is probably leaking. disconnect the water line coming out
of it and see if you have a slow drip. Try the dispenser to see if it's just
drips after use.
ice maker - If it overfills and drips, look for an
adjustment behind the plastic endcover with a +/- on it. - is less water. If it continuously drips, replace the water
inlet valve on the back where the house water supply comes in.
Had the same problem. As long as the ice machine is still moving, meaning its working but just no water is getting to the ice tray. order part #2205762 valve, solenoid and change it out. It is not hard to do if you pay attention to how you take the old one out.
to allow your fridge/freezer to be ice free a timed defrost phase apxx every 7 to 10 hrs occurres whe the ice is drefrosted the water shoud go via a collection tray to the top af the compressor to keep it cool the tray is situated at the bottom of the freezer side behind the panel youll find is probally blocked and the water is overflowing to the front instead of going the correct way if you tecn minded unplugh the appliance remuve the pabel and unblock the drain tray the panel is inside the freezer torward the bottom
Take the recess cup out and seal the area around it right where the front stainless steel panel meets the recess (right at the front of the recess) with clear silicone to prevent water from getting inside the door, then running out of the plastic frame area around the dispenser and running down the freezer door or out the bottom of the door. After the silicone has set, replace drip cup.
more than likely you have a frozen defrost drain look in the bottom of your freezer section there should be a depression there see if its just a big block of ice let me know if this is the case or not and ill tell you how to clear the drain if not then we will look at something else please dont rate me till were done
