I would check the water solenoid on the back of the refrigerator, where the water line hooks. You should have two solenoids, one for ice maker, and one for water in the door. Should be no reason to pull the door apart.

Have you tried adjusting the freezer temperature to a higher level? This worked for my Kenmore. It will take a couple of days to quit leaking.

Kenmore coldspot model 106 9445781 the icemaker motor makes loud noise. Sounds like its under a heavy load.

Suggest you take the ice maker out and defrost it. You propably have ice crystal buildup and causing it to labor harder.
