The valve is on the back of the unit and is impossible to not see as you will see the lines running from it.

If 2 lines run from the valve, then one goes to the filter and one to ice maker? The one going to ice maker,what keeps it from dispencing water into ice maker all the time? There must be a shut off valve or something to prevent water from entering ice maker. I don't understand the sequence of ice maker operation. HELP.

The icemaker will fill only when it cycles, so it may well be that your icemaker is bad and not the valve as valves rarely ever fail on these. Pour some water in the mold (assuming there is no ice in it) and see if it ejects it after a few hours.
