The ice maker in my 11 year old Kitchen Aide kssc42qks00 refrigerator will occasionally overflow - so that water runs out the ice dispenser! This has been happening only about once a month, but is now more frequent. The sounds made by the valve when open too long are identical to when it is working correctly... just for too long. I was going to replace the ice make thinking the control unit is bad. Does this sound like the way to go?
You could check the module on the front of the icemaker to see if the pins in the big wheel are broken. If they are then you would want to replace the module W10190935. Other than that it would sound more like a bad water valve not fully closing when done calling for water. Sticking water valve.
