I replaced the ice maker with a new one. All part were included. The cost was about $200.00 cheaper than what the repair person wanted.

Ice maker would fill with water and make ice but would not dispense ice.

Ice maker is held on by two clips and one screw. Removed old ice maker and unplugged wiring harness. It appeared normal. Since it was 15 years old and a brand new one was only a little more than $100 I decided to just replace it. Shopped online and got best price here. Delivered promptly. Item description said it did not come with wiring harness, but mine came with three different ones. However my wiring harness had a different molded plastic connector where it is plugged into the back of the freezer so I could not just pop it off and pop in the new one. Instead I had to reuse my old one. No problem, since the harness was not damaged anyway. Also I had to reposition the harness clip on the new ice maker and remove the plastic tab on the bottom and re use the tab from my existing ice maker. The tab on the new ice maker would not line up with the hole in the freezer. All in all it took about 10 minutes total to switch the two units out. Extremely simple job, do not pay someone to do this for you.

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

(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.........

What took the longest was emptying the very full freezer. One screwdriver. Note, three power cables included with the new unit. All were too short. The "old" cable showed no signs of wear,so i used it. Making ice in ~30 minutes!!! (-:
