Plastic hinge attached to chute door broke

  • Customer: James from Houston TX
  • Difficulty: Really easy
  • Time to Complete: 30 - 60 mins
  • Tools Required: Nutdriver, Pliers, Screw drivers
  • 0 of 0 people found this instruction helpful
I watched the video showing how to disassemble unit and it showed that there was a heat element inside the chute door under the foam seal that needed to be removed and placed in side the new chute door. I spent about 10-15 minutes trying to salvage the element but the adhesive used would not release and the part was rendered unusable. I called the help line and was told that their instructions on that kit said the heating element was no longer required. I finished putting the kit in and the unit works fine

Ice door would not close

  • Customer: Richard from Springfield MO
  • Difficulty: A Bit Difficult
  • Time to Complete: 1- 2 hours
  • Tools Required: Pliers, Screw drivers
  • 0 of 0 people found this instruction helpful
Ice door would not close thus letting warm air into the freezer compartment. Thinking the spring was broken, I ordered the Ice Door Kit. When it arrived, I dismantled the dispenser and installed the new parts. After installing all the new parts, I found that my problem was the "Y" end of the bracket that holds the spring pin. It was cracked and would not hold the pin. The bracket seemed to be molded into the panel on the outside of the dispenser. To replace the bracket, I would have had to replace the entire outside panel. I decided to repair the bracket and glue the broken piece. I used cyanoacrylate(CA)super glue that I use in model making. Even though that seemed adequate, I decided to drill a small hole through the bracket, perpendicular to the crack, and install a small screw to strengthen the crack. I also applied a little CA to the screw for good measure. It held fast and so far so good!

The repair (replacement) literally takes only a couple minutes. You simply pick up on and remove the broken bin and insert the new one in its place. The "wow" moment was the exceptional customer service I received from PartSelect. I ordered on a Monday around noon (est) and the part arrived the next day. It was a genuine Whirlpool part and an exact fit. This may well be my best on-line ordering experience and I failed to mention your price was about 20% less than Lowes. Thanks again and you won a loyal customer for future appliance needs.

The plastic Ice Handle had broken after years of use

  • Customer: Tom from Hollis NH
  • Difficulty: Easy

  • Tools Required: Nutdriver, Screw drivers

Your web site was great. There was a short step by step video on how to remove and replace the ice door kit and tools required. The only additional tool I used was Blue Tape so I could stabilize the inner control panel out of way onto Door.If I need more appliance parts I now know where I am ordering from!!

Install new water supply tube

  • Customer: Robert from Las Cruces NM
  • Difficulty: Very Difficult
  • Time to Complete: More than 2 hours
  • Tools Required:
  • 0 of 0 people found this instruction helpful
Neither the OEM instructions nor any of the PartSelect videos explained BOTH ends of the tube for my particular appliance. All very thoroughly covered the obvious connection with the water valve from the wall. However, the push valve end for my KitchenAid is supposed to insert into the water filter chassis, which can barely be seen from the back of the appliance, much less reached with any tool. In order to make the repair, one must either remove the water filter chassis (which I attempted unsuccessfully), or put the appliance up on jacks in order to reach the push valve site.

Ice bin auger drum fins broke off from the main shaft,stopping the production of crushed ice.

  • Customer: Billy from Goldsboro NC
  • Difficulty: Really easy
  • Time to Complete: 15 - 30 mins
  • Tools Required: Pliers, Screw drivers

Replaced the Ice Bin Auger,I ordered from PartSelect,which had much thicker housing and fins than the original .You remove the clip from the end of the shaft and a nylon nut which is a left hand which is opposite threads from most nuts.Its a good idea to take a picture of how the blades and spacers are ,because if not put back in the same direction their will be no crushed ice.It now works better and quiter than when it was new.

Broken plastic direct drive drum for ice-maker

  • Customer: Kim from Overton NV
  • Difficulty: Easy
  • Time to Complete: 30 - 60 mins
  • Tools Required: Screw drivers, Socket set
  • 0 of 0 people found this instruction helpful
My husband and I followed the instructional video on how to replace the "direct drive drum". We took note of how everything looked prior to dismantling the ice bin. We made sure we had the proper tools and a large flat surface to work on and started taking out the screws. Replaced the new drive drum part and put it all back together. The whole process took approximately 30 minutes and the ice crusher works great now. I'm a happy camper!!

Not making ice

  • Customer: Klaus from Valencia CA
  • Difficulty: Really easy
  • Time to Complete: Less than 15 mins
  • Tools Required: Nutdriver
  • 0 of 0 people found this instruction helpful
Ordered part#PS2341899, received in 2 days. Unplugged refrigerator and removed ice cube drawer. Then removed shelf above icemaker. Used 1/4 nutdriver to remove 3 screws holding the icemaker in place. Then unplugged electrical harness from icemaker. To install, just do the reverse and job could be completed within 10 to 15 minutes. It is not necessary to turn water off in back of refrigerator. You should have ice cubes within a couple of hours, however it takes about 24 hours to fill the ice drawer. Probably saved over $150 by doing it myself.

Unplugged it for a day listened to the ice melting on the inside and plug it in again. Decreased the temperature settings and it now seems to work fine. I will save the part in case I ever need it in the future.

Kick plate clip broke

  • Time to Complete: Less than 15 mins
  • Tools Required: Screw drivers

On the left side I unscrewed the screw and replace it with a new one .The right side in had to take s file and file of the rivet. You can use a rivet gun or a metal screw to replaced the clip. Once it is finish open the refrigerator door to see how to line the kick plate into the clip. A piece of cake.
