Question about Kenmore Side by Side Refrigerator
This water comes from a plugged up defrost drain tube. Do you see like a cup at the back of your refrigerator connecting using a plastic tube in a hole at the back of your refrigerator ? This cup collects dripping water from your freezer during a defrost cycle - you will notice a hole above it on the ceiling - what drips into this cup and drains out back the hole in your refrigerator wall and into a long drain tube extending down into the drip pan at the bottom of your refrigerator, usually sits ontop of the compressor or in newer systems next to the condenser fan and evaporates. If this drain tube is plugged up with debris water will backflow back into your fridge and drip against the wall and under your cripsers.
During a defrost cycle (when you hear the sizzling sounds and all motors are off, open the door and you should notice water dripping.
If you can manually remove the cup yourself you can pass a piece of pipe cleaner or long cable and dislodge whatever is blocking it or if you can't do that you will need to have it serviced, sometimes there is a seal around base of the plastic tube it's best you don't touch or break it. Makes ure the cup is firmly connected and inserted into the hole, you can try raising the fridge a bit, the front part so it is slightly inclined to back. If all fails, have it serviced, it is a very simply problem easy to repair and common too.

There are two options.
The fist is that you have mixed the wiring of the two coils. One is for ice maker and one is for water dispencer so you should confirm that the wires are correct position. If you are not sure for the position you can interchange them.
The second option is that the water coil or valve is stuck open from small dirt that were in the hose before changing valve, you should know better if this is posibble it it was dirty.
Or else the valve to stuck open, so a malfuction.
However the most posible is the first option with wrong wiring.
Here is the parts diagram of your model

Your water control valve is defective and will need to be replaced. Even though you hear the electrical part of the valve turn off the mechanical part of the control valve is stuck open causing water to continue to flow. What is your model number? Kenmore model numbers look like this example=> 312.234567 If you can find your model number I will show you the replacement part number, Thanks Sea Breeze
