Shut off the water supply. Removed the water line and filter housing. Had to watch the how to video to figure out how to disconnect the lines form the housing. Removed and replaced.

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.

Once we figured how to get front off, it was like a puzzle. One piece at a time. So thankful part has been improved and replaced. It works better than before, just wish would have done it sooner.

The Ice Bin Coupling Crumbled Like A Cookie

  • Customer: Michael from White Plains MD
  • Difficulty: Really easy
  • Time to Complete: Less than 15 mins
  • Tools Required: Screw drivers

After watching Steve from PartSelect.com, I was pretty confident. His video lasted only 2 1/2 minutes however; it had taken me only half the time. Since all blades were in tact, I held the top blade (inside the bin), unscrewed the bin coupling screw; added the coupling and washer and replaced the screw. Now I'm back to having cold beverages on call... Tks.

Both sides stopped getting cold

  • Customer: Lynda from Gary TX

I'm a 65 year old widow on a limited SS income, so I needed to get my refrigerator fixed as cheaply as possible. Partselect's troubleshooting guides took me right to the problem. I ordered the part on a Friday and it arrived the next Tuesday. It probably took me a little longer than it would a repairman, but I did it myself with just a screwdriver and a nut driver and it only cost me $45 instead of the $200 plus it costs my daughter to have someone else replace hers two years ago. Always remember to unplug amy electrical device before removing the covers or attempting any repair. All I had to do was remove the lower back cover on the refrigerator and, using the partselect diagram, locate the casing that covered the start relay and the overload switch on the left side of the compressor. I popped the casing off with the screwdriver, pulled the relay off (it's sits on two prongs), and remove the red terminal wire from the relay. Installation of the new relay is the reverse steps of the removal. Thanks, Partselect! I will be doing business with you again if the need ever arises.

shipping was faster than promised. Installation was as easy as replacing a light bulb. Make sure you turn off the ice maker before removing old filter - this could save you a big mess. Also, make sure you run about a gallon of water through the system before you start using the dispenser.
