Easier than expected. I reserved several hours of my time but was surprised it only took about 20 minutes. I removed the ice cube bin from the freezer and was able to access the one screw that held the ice maker assembly in place (at the bottom). Then it was just a matter of lifting the assembly off the two hooks near its top by pulling the bottom slightly away from the wall it was mounted on and sliding up. The water inlet was just a tube that slid in to the icemaker so no problem there. The wiring harness was a little tricky to disconnect or I would have been done much faster (I know better now). I moved the arm and harness from the old to the new and installed the new assembly. It took about two hours to start making ice and the bin has been full ever since.
I would like to point out that I originally ordered the part from another site who had it $2.00 cheaper with "free ground shipping". I needed it sooner than 7 to 9 days so I upgraded to 2-day shipping for an extra $19.95. After two days, it turned out they still hadn't shipped the part! I cancelled and order from PartSelect. They only charged $12.95 for two-day shipping which more than made up for the misleading $2.00 price difference. PartSelect also delivered exactly when I expected. I learned my lesson and will use PartSelect first next time.
