Unplugged refrigerator and shut off water supply. My husband took out the ice cube tray, loosened 2 nuts (?) and took out 1 screw. Removed the old unit. Set in the new unit and tightened the two nuts and replaced the screw. That's it! (Parts arrived in 1 1/2 days!)

I tried to just replace the cover rather than the whole unit but it was impossible - the cover would not go/stay on. I tried to remove the old unit completely but it would not unplug it was practically fused to the back of the fridge and the liner was cracking. I ended up breaking the cover and jerry rigging it over the bulb to prevent items in the fridge from being able to touch. Bad solution.

Broken Water Nozzle at Door

  • Customer: Chris from Brentwood, TN
  • Difficulty: Easy
  • Time to Complete: 15 - 30 mins
  • Tools Required: Pliers, Screw drivers
  • 0 of 0 people found this instruction helpful
(1) Ordered PS371704 from PartSelect! Best advice EVER! (2) Unplugged refrigerator (since the water solenoid on the back of the refrigerator is powered to switch ON the water, you NEVER have to turn off the water!) (3) Pull off the refrigerator's bottom grill. (4) With a small saucer under the fittings, unscrew the black and white tube fitting. There is only one nut to remove on the white tubing side. You'll need to undo the compression fitting on the black tubing and slide off the compression nut. You'll need to MAKE SURE you keep these nuts and replace onto the black and white tubing the SAME WAY you took them off. You'll NOT need to use nut drivers as finger tight is the key. Too hard and you'll ruin these plastic nuts. You should get only about 1/8 cup or less of water during this whole exercise. (5) Cut off the old, broken water nozzle. (4) Find a screw of the appropriate size to fit tightly 1/2 way inside the new tubing (this is to ensure your old and new tubing are connected to feed through the door). If screw is not tight within the tubing, wrap part of a plastic (thin) sack around this screw a couple of times and force into the tubing. You'll, of course, then need to use the hacksaw to cut the head off the screw as you'll be forcing the other half of the screw into the old cut tubing (6) Chase the dog out of the kitchen and cajole your wife (significant other) to push the newly joined tubes through the top of the dispenser, through the door and out the bottom as you will be gently PULLING on this old tubing from the bottom until the new tubing pops through the doors bottom. (7) Once this new tubing is out, you will separate the old tubing and, using the nuts in the proper sequence, connect this new tubing to the white tubing. (8) Plug the refrigerator back in and test flow the water. Check to ensure the plastic nuts have no leakage ... button up the bottom grill ... and enjoy the fresh water! PS> Don't forget to praise the wife (significant other) and give the dog a treat for staying out of your face!!

I printed your diagram of the complete assembly for reference when installing the new part. I was able to get the part number from the diagram and ordered it online. I received the new part in 2 days. I removed the ice from the ice maker's bin and kept it in the freezer. I removed the old drum and auger from the ice maker assembly and installed the new drum #4388736. I looked at your diagram to make sure I had all of the blades in their right orientation. After the drum and auger assembly was installed, I placed the ice that I had saved into the ice bin and slide it back into place. I then tested if the assembly would now drop ice and also if it would crush the ice, which i do not use very opten, because I know that using the ice crush mode will prematurely wear the drum assembly. The drum and auger gets much more stress when it is crushing ice. After the icemaker worked flawlessly, I rolled the refrigerator back into its regular position along side the cabinets. I was very pleased with the part and the excellent service that PartSelect.com provided. The price was less than I thought I would have to pay. Also, the company provides most of the individual parts of the ice maker assembly. Normally, when I would shop at a designated Whirlpool distributor, I would have to purchase the entire assembly costing 3 or 4 times higher than the price of the individual part. I, will now, always purchase my parts from PartSelect.com.

Found auger was broken. Also found the ice cubes seemed too big and not breaking apart after the ice maker would cycle and dump in to the bucket. So I adjusted the ice cubes water feed timer making the cubes smaller and they are working real good through the auger now.Thanks for delivering the part so fast.........

The only problem I had was the nut at the end turned the opposite direction. Once I realized that I took it apart in sequence and it went right back together. It helped me in that I slid all the parts off the auger shaft onto another small rod I had and then slid them right back on. Was no problem
