The good news is that the part (the wheel was available.) I bought two in the event that the other wheel may break in the future. The bad news is that the housing that holds the wheel was riveted together by the wheel axle. It would have been nice to know that before I bought the part and if the housing with the wheel installed was available. The refrigerator was at my summer house a hundred miles away. Anyway, we had to grind the end of the riveted axle to dislodge it from the wheel housing. With the axle dislodged from the housing we were able to install the wheel and then hammer the end of the axle flat to keep in place, like the original rivet installation. It is not perfect but it held and should be fine. I am glad I was able to get the part and will be back in the future, if in need of other parts.
As per suggestion I replaced the water inlet valve.I pulled out the refrigerator and removed the cardboard panel. I removed the water inlet unit by removing two screws. I used pliers to take off the the tubes to the ice maker and the water. Then removed the inlet supply tube. Installation was the reverse process. However this did not fix the problem. After further research on another web site, I realized that the diagram that was furnished by PartSelect did not fit my refrigerator. What I really needed was the ice maker module. So I need to order the right one and I can't return the wrong part because I installed it. So I just left the lever in the ice maker in the up postion. the ice maker is still not working.
