Turn-off water and disconnect main water line to inlet-tube.
Removed lower-back panel of the fridge with a screw driver and disconnected the hose with a small wrench to the main fridge water valve.

On th top-left, back of the fridge, removed screws to the small plate where the hoses enter for the water filter. In the fridge, removed the water filter, then removed the plastic panel above the filter - it snaps out. There are two screws to remove, then grasp and pull the assembly and hoses out. reverse the process for an easy install.

I was not able to put the small plate onthe back, top-left of the fridge back on. It's a tight fit and I didn't want to pinch the lines. Not doing that, though, may limit how your fridge rolls back to where it was, because the lines will stick-out a couple of inches.
