Double the water in frig


I have a KitchenAid ktla22elss01 refrigerator.
It has a water dispenser inside the refrigerator and an automatic ice maker that dumps ice in the freezer. The ice maker works fine.
The problem is when I press the button inside the frig to get a cold glass of water not only do I get a cold glass of water but water also flows into my ice maker as long as I hold the button. For some reason both of my solenoids (ice maker and water dispenser) are being energized when I press my water dispenser button. I looked at the wires and nothing seems shorted out, or out of place . I even took the hoses off of my valve inlt and watched water shoot out of both valves when the button was pressed.
Is there some sort of isolation valve I need to replace? I noticed one metioned in the schematics.
Any help would be appreciated. We are tired of getting huge blocks of ice in our ice bin.

Thanks
Joe B

you need to call a servicer, otherwise you're going to start throwing parts at it. you may have transducence at the valve, bad valve, i/m, switch's, etc.
