My Frigidaire SxS refrigerator, FFHS2611LBK...
My Frigidaire SxS refrigerator, FFHS2611LBK, shoots water of the water dispenser when the ice maker calls for ice. I replaced the diode and the water inlet valve yesterday and am still experiencing the issue.
Right the now the filter is also bypassed to eliminate it from the equation.
What else could cause this issue?

Need more coffee - it shoots water out of the water dispenser when the ice maker calls for water to fill the tray.

Is there anyway to test to see if this is the issue first? I'm assuming not, but it doesn't hurt to ask!

Not really, if you have replaced all those parts that is all it can be. There are no other parts to the circuit.

Just FYI - I don't know if this makes a difference or not, but I disconnected the yellow valve, which I believe is for the water dispenser. When I depress the dispenser, water still comes out. It makes a loud noise, but there is still water.

Yeah I would replace that part for sure.

It ended up being a bad connection with the diode. I cut off the connections it came with and reconnected with wire nuts, and everything is working as it should now.

Weird issue for sure glad you got it.

It was a last-ditch effort on my part. Doing this for whatever reason stopped the noise the filter change brought on, made water dispensing for door and icemaker silent, and stopped dripping and spewing when ice maker called for the water. My guess is the voltage was off just enough to cause the valves to malfunction.

sounds like it for sure.
