Hi,

So does it only spray water when it's trying to fill the ice maker with water or are you saying it sprays water longer then that?

Does the ice maker work?

Sounds like the water inlet valve is sticking open after the ice maker fills with water.
I looked up your model and it use water valve part # W10408180

It's also a possibility that the ice maker itself is hanging up in the fill cycle longer then it should. In that case the ice maker would be at fault.

It could be difficult to troubleshoot such a problem if it don't do it on every fill cycle. With the age of it and to avoid future problems you may want to replace both the ice maker and water valve. Your model uses ice maker part # W10190961

It's a easy job to replace the valve and ice maker, just make sure you turn off the water to the refrigerator and unplug it.
