I have a SXD22S2W side-by-side fridge. The water dispenser

Resolved Question:

I have a SXD22S2W side-by-side fridge. The water dispenser is delayed in starting when the lever is pressed and it continues to dispense about a 1/2 cup of liquid AFTER the lever is released. This just started to occur.

does this make a clicking noise when its sticking? it sounds to me like you need to replace the water inlet valve. let me look that up for you. thanks , Bryan

No, there is no "clicking" noise. You can hear the lever "turn on" and then "turn off" BUT the water continues to flow.
