Answer Hello Rudy. Yes, the water valve W10408180 is the same for the icemaker and the dispenser. It is located on the back of the unit behind the compartment panel.
Water is free flowing in ice maker even in the off setting, had to shut off water supply.
Answer Hello Marty,
This can be a set of contacts stuck in the icemaker assembly or a bad water valve. If you pull the unit out and turn the water on, then unplug the refrigerator, if the water stops replace the icemaker 4317943. If it continues to run, replace the water valve W10408179.

When my wife & I walk away from the ice dispenser, the ice continues to dispense until completely empty.
Answer Hello Thomas,
This is most commonly caused by sticky linkages in the dispense area. This is caused by ice being dispensed into drinks such as soda, sweet tea, Kool-Aid, etc. There is always a danger of this sticky residue getting into the control board which will cause electronic failures. In your case, you might be able to disassemble and clean the linkage parts with rubbing alcohol to restore proper operation. If it has gotten into the relay on the board, the board 2303843 will have to be replaced.
