The replacement ice maker water inlet was taller than the original. I had to disassemble both the new and old unit to replace the new water inlet with the old one. The video was very helpful in troubleshooting, removing and installing the unit.

Watcheda U-Tube type video of how to repair the unit. This was very helpful in that it identified a screw that had to be removed but was not visible upon my initial observations. Also it mentioned that you had to re-use some of the original hardware in order to complete the replacement. My only complaint is that I believe the failed motor could have been replaced for about $15 but I was not able to find that specific part in any catalog and opted to replace the entire unit. Overall I am extremely well pleased. Everything now works fine.

Removed the door (3 bolts on top). Removed the old plastic door closing cam on the bottom. Installed the new one. It was too tall (probably my fault), so I trimmed it with garden shears (it was a tubular piece of plastic). If you do this, be very careful, as the shears cut through the plastic MUCH easier than I thought. Popped the new one on, re-secured the door, and it works great now. Thank you partselect!

Tried to follow video but was unable to see it. Audio was fine. Removal was the difficult part because area is frozen. Placed a warm towel over the icemaker and it came out easily. The folks at Parts Select were knowledgeable, sent me the correct part when Sears no longer supported the Kenmore Elite. Ice flowing from the appliance.

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.
