Amana ice maker leaking

I have an Amana refridgerator/freezer, model #TXI21RL
and the ice maker is leaking. It started as a small leak that seemed to only happen when the ice maker was working, while if I lifted the bar to stop the icemaker it appeared stop leaking. The last couple of days it has gotten a lot worse and is a constant drip. When I'm looking in the freezer, it's leaking on the front, right hand corner. I have absolutely no knowledge of how to fix something like this, but with proper instruction I believe my husband and I could get the job done .

Any advice would be greatly appreciated.
Thank you so much! ~ Heidi

You need to replace the water valve located in the bottom back of your refrigerator that let the water into your icemaker. The valve has gone bad, allowing water to your icemaker even when it's turned off. Get the new valve, unplug the refrigerator, turn off the water supply to the refrigerator, remove the water line from the old valve, remove and replace the water valve. Turn back on the water, check for any leak, plug back in the refrigerator. Clean old ice buildup in freezer section, turn on icemaker, enjoy ice cubes. Even a husband can do these things.
