I followed the instructions given by your demonstration. I took the back screw off, dropped the wire plastic cover. I then used the screwdriver to push the two (2)slots in and pulled the icemaker out and then unplugged it. I believe unplugging it was a little hard because the plug was pretty well sealed together and frozen. After finally getting the plug apart I then pulled the icemaker fully out. After pulling the cover off and putting it on the new one per your demonstration, I then inserted it back in. I stuck my hand behind the icemaker and bent the hose with my index finger and thumb so that it would drop into the water tray and then slid the icemaker back in until it snapped back in the slots. I then put the plug cover back on and reinserted the screw. I forgot to mention taking the front cover off before removing the icemake and reinserting it after replacing the icemaker. I would highly suggest customers follow your demonstration, it paid off well. I watched it about 8 times before I received the icemaker in the mail. Oh by the way water started flowing into the icemaker with 4 minutes and ice started coming out in about 30 minutes. As the icemaker got colder it started producing the ice faster. It's a sweet sound hearing the ice drop into the container.

Ice guide was broken. A glued fix failed so it was time to replace.

Hardest part of the whole project was figuring out how to get the bezel off the door to expose the problem area. The rest was simply removal and replace parts. The actuator arm had epoxy on it from the attempted repair and had to be replaced. Easy fix. If you can use a screwdriver and pay attention of how it comes apart you can do this.

On the inside of the freezer door, I removed the ice bin (not sure it was needed, but I did it) and then removed two screws holding the motor compartment cover (above the second from the bottom shelf in the door). The motor was then visible, and I removed 4 screws (one in each corner of the motor) holding the motor in place. Took the motor out, and put the new motor in place (had to align the auger so that the flat side of it would fit into the motor collar). Replaced the four screws holding the motor in place, and replace the cover with the two screws... done. worked perfectly in about 10 minutes.

I removed the part and read the part number and ordered the motor. I received the motor three days later. It took about ten to fifteen minutes to replace the motor and another ten minutes to replace all the other parts. The motor was the answer. We have dispensed ice again.

Auger motor bad

Ice dispensing was Intermittent so I didn't know if the motor was the problem. Preceding instructions were very clear so I won't repeat them. One thing that was tricky is the rubber washer between the shaft and motor. No big deal but it requires a little patience to get it in place. Unit works perfect and steady. Overall, very satisfied with the ability to troubleshoot in the website and of course the instructions and part itself (OEM).

Ice despencer did not despense ice.

Removed and replaced the Ice Auger Drive motor. I performed the motor removal and replacement as described in the instructions on your web site. The problem I had was with replacing the rubber seal on the bottom of the auger shaft. I had to remove the cardboard assembly (two screws) in order to get the seal back on the auger shaft. The smaller rubber washer and plastic spacer fell away from the auger shaft when I pulled the shaft out. I had to go back to your schematic and review the proper location of those two items before I did the reinstall. That info was not included in the web instructions. Overall, the web instructions were helpful with my repair. My dispenser now works great.

Follow the well presented video from PartSelect with one exception; Once inside the ice maker, the auger motor is hiding underneath the plastic flap on a Whirlpool Gold Frig. My husband and I were hesitant and were concerned that we might rip or break something. No so just lift it up. It's always the silly things that get ya! It was an easy fix thanks to PartSelect. If I have good directions I can fix anything and yes I'm a blonde.

Refrigerator stopped dispensing ice through door.

I called the authorized repair company and received an estimate of $300 +, with minimum $75 to look at it. That motivated me to try it myself. Removed two nuts on either side of auger on inside of door, then pulled out shaft and set aside. Shut door, removed drip shelf, and removed the two Phillips head screws, pulled cover, unplugged wiring harness and set cover aside. Auger motor is covered by kind of card stock paper cover with foil on inside. Lifted that out of way and removed the four nuts attaching the motor. Unplugged and removed motor and replaced with new motor. Replaced the four nuts, plugged in the new motor, lowered the paper cover. Re-attached the ice door cover with the two Phillips head screws. Opened door, replaced auger drive shaft with the two nuts and replaced ice canister. Works perfectly. 20 minutes and the cost of the motor - estimate I saved $200+ for 20 minutes work.

The icemaker stopped working

Removed icemaker and installed the new one. Went from six tiny ice cubes to four big ice cubes. Ice is of a higher quality, and the ice no longer falls out of the bin as the old ice maker's ice had once been prone to doing. A certified epic win on my part.

Water leaking and freezing on the botton of the icemaker mold

Install was done in reverse order of uninstall. The only thing that made this install a bit tricky is that the fill cup on the replacement icemaker was not the same part as on the original. I could have attempted to trim the replacement fill cup but didn't know how well that would work. I instead elected to install the original fill cup onto the new icemaker. This added a bit of time and complexity to the repair but I followed a repair video for when just the ice mold is being replaced. That video told me how to disassemble the ice mold and timer motor which had to be done to in order to replace the fill cup. It's been about 2 weeks since repair was made and the icemaker seems to be working properly.
