Just remove old one which was really easy since it was practically falling off and replace with new one. It is a bit tricky because you are afraid of breaking the new one. Watch the video and you will be more confident. I was REALLY impressed with the shipping. I ordered on Monday afternoon and when I returned home Tuesday afternoon it was waiting for me on my porch , and this was the week between Christmas and New Year when everyone was fussing about not receiving packages. NOT ME!

Used flat blade screwdriver to remove old guide by spreading the remaining top tabs. Inserted new guide and tipped the top forward to line up bottom tab in slot. Used screwdriver to push in tab. Once it was seated pressing in the top snapped the guide into place easily.

We moved into a house that we are renting. The whirlpool refrigerator was missing the the ice shoot. The landlord wouldn't hire someone to install one. I am %95 blind. I went on PartSelect , entered the refrigerator and they had an easy blow up diagram. I ordered the part and watched a video on how to install it. When the part came in my son watched the video and had it installed. Hats off to PartSelect for their great web site .

watched the video on your website, assembled the tools needed, then replaced the bracket. It was so easy because I would play one step in the video, do that step, then repeat for the rest of the video. Very happy with the part and speed of service with partselect.com and the video was excellent !!

Just snapped Cap in place, This is the third time ordering parts from partselect, have ordered complete ice maker for one freezer, and a control bracket for an ice dispenser on another freezer, every time parts have arrived in less than two days as promised. I'm very happy with partselect.

Ice dispenser guide missing and ice dispensor switch broken stays

  • Customer: Richard from La Quinta CA
  • Difficulty: Easy
  • Time to Complete: 15 - 30 mins
  • Tools Required: Nutdriver, Pliers, Screw drivers

The ice dispensor guid went in very quickly - just as the video indicated. The rear, side stays were a little tight, but it now works great. The plastic bracket holder for the water and ice switches had broken holders for the ice switch. The video was very clear, and disconnecting the electric above the door made the job easier. My arrangement is a little different from the video (no screws holding the outside cover no the inside bracket box). But, the repair went quickly and I would have had a lot of extra problems without the video as a clear and detailed guide. My only wish was to have seen the videos before purchasing the parts. I highly recommend your parts, quick delivery, reasonable prices, and excellent video repair guides. Thanks,

no water would come out the door water dispenser

I watched a couple of videos on your website about how to install a couple of parts that could possibly be causing the problem. Then I went and took the cover off of the area where the ice and water dispenser are in the door. I could tell from watching the videos which parts to look at to see where the problem might be. I figured out which part it was because I could see where it was broken. I then ordered the part. After I received the part I watched the videos again and then did the repair. VOILA! It worked. I put everything back together and the water dispenser was working. I was so pleased that I didn't have to call a repair man and I actually fixed it myself! My husband was so glad too.

Water dispenser did not work. Ice dispenser did work.

I first viewed the instructional video provided by Partselect to pin point the faulty part. It was the control bracket. I would not have known how to expose the control bracket if it weren't for the video. Also Partselect said 48% of past water dispenser problems were the control bracket; this also helped me pinpoint the faulty part. I ordered the part; it arrived in 3 days. Using the video as a guide I repaired the dispenser in about 20 minutes start to finish. I will always go to Partselect for all appliance problems.

The plastic control bracket would not "lock" in place because the plastic detentes broke, not allowing the ice maker dispensing 'paddle' to engage the micro switches that allows the ice maker to eject ice. An easy repair of replacing the entire plastic control bracket.

Water would not despense

The video explains it well, however, for those with the built-in model, the one with the wood panels, things are a bit different. Thanks to another writer, I received help. After you unscrew and remove the two side metal décor strips from the freezer, you are left with how to remove the no-screws décor ice/water panel. It does NOT slide out. You must carefully bend the panel out and away from its top and bottom tracks. I do wonder why not just make it slide out, but no such luck. Be careful not to over bend. However, once you begin bending from the middle out, it will become clear to you how its going to come out. Also, with this panel removed, and left hanging there, it is not necessary to unplug any of those electrical connects. The only electrical work is removing the light from the control bracket you are replacing, as shown in the video. I found bending the décor panel back in place was easier than pulling it out. Be sure to unplug the unit. Plug found at top of refrigerator behind very top wood panel. You will need to easily remove this very top wood panel, and you will need a step ladder to reach plug.
