I followed the easy video online that was mentioned in the paperwork that came with the part. The day before I replaced the flapper door for the ice chute and when I saw the rusted solenoid I immediately ordered that part which arrived the next day. I did not need to remove the border around the water/ice dispenser access area as shown in the video to install the parts. I did use a tiny screwdriver to press the little tabs on either side at the bottom of the front panel to release it to get to the parts. I was able to remove and replace the solenoid within minutes. And this was my first ever appliance repair attempt!
