Problem disconnecting the water line tubing

  • Difficulty: Easy
  • Time to Complete: 30 - 60 mins
  • Tools Required: Screw drivers, Socket set

I could not pull the water filtering housing far enough forward to disconnect the water tubing lines (short tubing line). I had to remove the cover from the back of the refrigerator, disconnect the tubing from the back and then pull the water housing forward to disconnect the tubing from the housing. This added another 20 minutes to the job. Otherwise the installation went well.

replacing the ice and water filter

I watched the YouTube video on your website, performed the task as depicted in the video, and had absolutely no difficulty. The fellow in the video must be stronger than I am, so I used a pliers to twist out the old, and twist in the new. And while turning off the ice maker first was a good hint, he forgot to tell me not to turn the old filter upside down after removal because it is pretty much filled with water. I kind of think I'm pretty handy, but your site is really, really good for the average homeowner.

I was hesitant about calling the repair line, I thought it was a gimmick, but tried anyway since it was close to the 4th of July weekend. The repairman asked a few questions and diagnosed the problem. He said the sensor was out on the ice maker and I would have to get a new one, he gave a link to the part I needed. I was still hesitant, as I know very little about repairing appliances. Thought about it for an hour, decided to order the part, and thought I would call a repair man if all else failed and send the part back. I received the part in 3 days and it didn't look too difficult to install, I decided to give it a shot, all i have to do was take a few screws out, remove the old ice maker, and put the new ice maker in and plug it in and attach the screws, it went real well, the hardest part was finding the right size socket to fit on the screws, I turned the water back on and it didn't leak. The next day I had ice, still can't believe I did it myself. I was extremely pleased, that I didn't have to call a repairman and take a day off from work to get it fixed. I will use this sevice again.

Took out the old filter and put in the new one that I received from you which seemed liked almost immediately after waiting three months to get the filter from Whirlpool. I will from now on order all filters from your company because the lady that took my order was very courteous and told me exactly when to expect the part. Love doing business that way.

Exactly as shown in the video; had a bit of trouble with the wiring harness, but all else went smoothly. If it were not for the explicit video installation instruction, it could not have been done by a do-it-yourself guy with tools. I had ice again in 3 hours! PartSelect is the absolute best when it comes to diagnosing, ordering and installing the part(s).

It was so simple, one screw to take the ice maker out and four screws for the motor. I ordered the motor because in your web site it suggested that 46% of the times its the motor the problem, I guess you could now say 47%. Got the part within 3 days. It was a pleasure doing business with your company. I recommended highly to everyone. Your web site was a lot of help.

April 2012
My ice maker (2001 Whirlpool Gold side by side) stopped making ice. Using the model number (inside fridge, right wall), Google found the partselect website containing diagrams of the entire refrigerator. Using the "freezer liner" and "ice maker" diagrams, I discovered that electronic control boards, control and motor assembly, and water inlet valves could cause the ice maker to stop making ice. Since the LED lamps in the freezer liner were not working (diagnosis described as part of the emitter control board description), I replaced the emitter control boards first. After installation, the lights worked properly, according to the diagnosis, but still no ice. It seemed logical to next replace the control and motor assembly. About two hours after installation, the ice maker produced cubes, and has been working since. Each of the two parts orders from PartSupply came within 3 days, and were the correct parts for my machine. Installation illustrations were accurate and helpful

Ice maker not working

Ordered the part recommended by your site, followed the instructions of the associated video and new ice is piling up right now. My only concern was no action for a time right after the install. Turns out the temperature of the freezer must drop back down to ?? before the ice maker starts to work. I was thinking maybe the electrical connection was not good. I choose to wait a night and see if change would occur. Freezer cooled down and ice maker started.

Based on research done on your site, I concluded that my problems was the icemaker control. The video showed me exactly what to do. During removal, I dropped the unit and broke the water fill cup. Ordered the control unit (as well as a replacement for the broken cup). Installed in about ten minutes. You really can't mess up. It only goes in one way! The next day, bucket was full of ice. Thanks for all the help. I figured I saved $200.00 on the cost of a technician call.
