Took the ice bucket out and had to disassemble it completely to get the old auger end out of the grinding blades at the front of the ice dispenser. That part was kind of tricky because I was just using pliers to hold the blades while I got the lock washer off the plastic threaded piece that the auger screws into. Make sure you keep those blades in the precise order they come off, along with the plastic bushings that go in between some of them. Once I got the old auger free of the plastic end piece it went pretty quickly from there. I could never get the new auger to screw cleanly into that plastic end piece. It kept cross-threading so I just shoved it back on and it seemed to be snug enough. I've been using it for a couple of weeks and it is doing great.

Initially, the diagnosis arrived at through the help of the "Parts Select" website was that the valve solenoid had failed. I ordered the valve solenoid and replaced it, which was easy to do based on the video help guide located on the "Parts Select" website. But, the problem persisted. In order to verify that the new solenoid worked properly, I removed the output lines from the solenoid and breifly activated the water dispenser. Based on the significant water flow, I was convinced that the solenoid was in fact operating properly. I did not reinstall the original solenoid but I am confident that it was operating fine. So, I have a spare solenoid now. At this point, I moved downstream which took me to the water filter housing. I removed the housing from the refrigerator and reconnected it behind the refrigerator which allowed me to "play" with the assembly. I do not know what the problem was but by pressing the filter harder into the housing assembly, I could improve the water flow. I ordered the new filter housing, which comes with tubes, changed it and the water flows like new.

No water to door but ice maker works.

Just as described in earlier reviews, this was the filter housing unit and not the double water valve. To determine which part is failing bypass the water filter unit by disconnecting both water lines and connecting the fresh water line directly to the water valve. If this solves the problem, then you know for sure the filter housing is the problem. The filter housing has a very small tab that pushes open a rubber flap valve when a filter is installed. This allow you to remove the filter without turning off the water supply. Apparently only a very small amount of wear prevents the flap valve from opening fully and allowing water to flow. A small amount of water flow may be evident with the water dispenser but the ice maker will keep working until flow is completely interrupted. Easy fix.
