I watched the repair video before I even ordered the part. That helped me determine if I felt I could make the repair. The video was extraordinarily helpful. Can't say enough about it. I even took off the dispenser door to see if I thought I could do it. The part arrived quickly, in just a couple of days. I only needed the door flap but it came with the solenoid which is not uncommon on ordering parts. (I couldn't even find the part on other web sites much less a video on how to repair.) I reviewed the video again. I removed the drip tray and door facing as instructed. When removing the mechanism I did get incur a slight electrical shock. I had not unplugged the refrig. Duh.. Got the mechanism out and inserted the door flap. The solenoid strike bar had come out and I had a slight problem getting that back in but referenced the video and no problem. Put in all back in place. Had to clean out the ice bin some because water had frozen in the bottom. Put it back in, plugged in the refrig and I am back in business! Terrific! The video was the key for me. It gave me confidence with very clear instructions. Bill

The replacements parts were aftermarket parts so I could not simply replace the one piece I needed. I did replace all the original parts with the aftermarket parts and it works perfectly. I wish the design was closer to the original, but it is just as functional. The only problem I ran into was the images on the instruction sheet were difficult to see. The text however did an exceptional job of explaining each step.

Pulled out frig and unplugged it from wall. Took out 2 screws to gain access to valves. Took out screw holding bracket holding valve bracket to frig and removed one more to remove the old valve from bracket. Simple water disconnect with wrench after that and changing the lines to door cutting them back 1/2 ", direct plug in electrical connections, replacement exact like original. I had previously changed the other solinoid with the problematic Y connector but that didn't do the trick. This fix seems to be the correct one to fix the problem.

shut water off to fridge. remove dust panel from bottom of fridge on back of fridge. remove screws on bracket that holds water valve. remove lines(2) that connect directly to top of water valve (keep track of which line goes to which side on top of valve). cut about 1/2 inch off of those 2 water lines. take those 2 water lines and just insert/push them into their proper location on top of new water valve. reattach bracket. replace dust panel. turn water back on to fridge and check for leaks.

Pulled out ref. removed 3 screws holding the fiber covering. Removed one screw holding the water inlet, disconected the elecrical and the water line from supply and the tubing going to the water filter.
Then connected water lines and the electrical to new inlet, and attached the new inlet back with the one screw, reattached the fiber backing. All Done.

Note: ice cube tray did not fill immediately...air in water line??? However, after short time all works fine.

First I cut the power to the refrigerator. Followed the instructions for removing the door panel. Disconnected the electrical panel to the door controls. replaced the flap only and reassembled. Hate I had to by the solenoid when all I needed was the flap. Ordered the part and had it the next day, very fast shipping. I have used PartSelect for other appliance parts and had good service from them.

I accessed the model with the model number, isolated the part and ordered it online. Very simple procedure and great online interface to identify the part. On receiving the part I disconnected the water line, followed the instructions to remove the bracket and then the valve. Re-attached the new valve and replaced the bracket. Attached the water supply and tested the valve. Once it all worked fine I moved the refrigerator back into position.

After Watching the Video, this Job was very easy. I moved the Refridgerator away from the Wall, disconnected Power, shut-off water shut-off valve, unscrewed Water Line and caught water in a small pan. Loosened up 1 screw and removed valve, unplugged 2 electrical connections and bottom water line. I cut-off an inch of line and reinstalled the valve in reverse order. Plugged Refridgerator back in and instantly had water at Dispensor. Now the ice-cubes are normal size. Thank-you PartSelect.
