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.

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.

After reading (Warm air getting into freezer) by David from Chesterfield, MO & (Ice door was broken) by Ray from San Antonio, TX, it was easy to follow their instructions (especially- Patience is a virtue! and go step by step. Thanks to both for their detailed instructions, this retired mechanical engineer was able to 'get it done'. Stan from Denison, TX

Removed (snap on)removed screw, and ice dispencer side (door and Pin) You have to assemble to reinstall (not easy to install while assembled) Install the pivot pin the rest of the way with the new spring mounted and when unit is almost in place, install the pivot the rest of the way, install tension hold downs that old both the water and ice dispenser shafts, reinstall cover, reconnect wiring and test, I had to remove the plunger because the water wouldn't shut off fast enough. Unit works great now.

Turn off power to the frig. Remove the shelves and back brackets from the freezer, then with a 1/4" nut driver remove the nuts holding the rear metal panel in place. Once removed the defrost thermostat is right in front of you. You will have to clip the wires from the old t-stat because they are in a harness. Once clipped, strip the wires back, wire in the new t-stat, add wire nuts and put it all back together. Very easy job to do, works great. Thanks Parts Select, Mike.
