This part works with the following brands: Whirlpool, Admiral, Estate, Inglis, Kenmore, KitchenAid, Roper, Maytag, Crosley, Jenn-Air, Hardwick, Magic Chef, Amana, Caloric & Glenwood.
This part fixes the following symptoms:
First, I removed the drawers at the bottom of the fridge and then I removed the three hex head (7/32) screws that hold the end cap on. Then I disengaged the slider which connects to the temperature control for the pantry drawer. Then, unscrewed the drawer slides with a Phillips from the old end cap. Also the slide push rod has to be disengaged from the clips on the back of the endcap.Then, I reinserted the push rod to the new end cap and reattached the drawer sliders and the slider itself. At this point I realized I SHOULD have unscrewed the temperature slider at the back where it covers the cold air outlet. The screw had slipped out. I replaced it with a slightly larger wood screw. Reinstall the drawers, all done.

First, make sure you have the correct part. I had trouble with mine, at first, until I realized that I had received the wrong part... it was same shape but larger. To begin, remove both fruit/vegetable drawers. Remove deli drawer. Remove deli drawer glass panel with both supports. Remove 3, 1/4" hex screws that attach end-cap. Disengage temp control slide and arm from end-cap by carefully moving parts in the direction where they will disengage. Remove temp control slide from end-cap. Now that end-cap is out, remove 2 screws that hold metal drawer slide to end-cap. Attach drawer slide to new end-cap. Attach temp contol slide and connect the plastic arm. Attach end-cap to refrigerator. Replace glass shelf, supports and drawers. Done.

Removed the three screws that held part, lifted and removed old part and replaced with new piece.Couldn't have been easier. Saved me the $100 the repair man quoted me. Cannot believe it was so easy and the part was soooo affordable! Thank you very much for the speedy delivery. It came within days of my order.I will use your service again for sure!Thank you!Allyn Rosenzweig
Unscrewed all related parts and also took out drawers and glass shelf. Reused plastic slider which raps around right corner to the back wall of the unit. Make sure to remember how this plastic slider fits into the new end cap, it is a little tricky putting it back without cracking it. Suggest take a digital picture as to how it fits together before taking the slider out of the old end cap. Reinstall same way as you took it out. Good time to clean while everything is out of the bottom of the refrigerator.
This kind of repair makes me love the internet. Thank you. Follow advice of my fellow posters but beware, all your plastic parts are very brittle from the cold. Proceed slowly. As mentioned by others but worth stressing is...do resist the temptation to force any piece...I could just see myself snapping one of these pieces and having to order another part! Take your time to work out the sequence to disengage each piece in turn. It's a bit of a puzzle but take your time. Also suggest starting the job with a nice bowl of warm baking-soda water to gently and effectively clean everything as you go.
I brought you the exploded view of the crisper parts on your website and proceeded accordingly. Besides the three nuts holding the end cap to the frig interior wall the temperature adjustment linkage had to be disassembled on reassemblied on the new replacement end cap. Plastic linkage parts present the problem of breakage, so one must be careful during the disassembly process. Some other type of fasteners for the linkage assembly (screw and nut, ball and socket) would be prefereable. All and all, its a machine. Wtith exploded view, what could go wrong?
I am not handy; but the repair was really not difficult. I removed three screws that held the end cap. I removed the slide and the tempature control. Next, I assembled the slide and tempature control - a bit of time to figure out how it worked. Once that was done, I re-attached the end cap with three screws. Pretty easy, and my wife is happpy. BTW, the part arrived prompty and in great shape. I am very happy!
Removed the drawer and shelf above to get access to drawer slide. Removed slide with socket wrench. Also need to remove, then reinstall the arm that is attached to right side end cap that adjusts the temperature flow into the pantry drawer. Reattaching it was not obvious so it took awhile to figure out how it fit. Written instructions would have helped. The part did not come with anything. This is the second end cap that has required replacing. The first was on the left so did not involve the temperature adjustment arm.
a) removed screws with nutdriverb) took out old piecec) disassembled good parts from broken pieced) reassembled good parts on new piece.e) reattached new piecef) reattached door to crisper.
The crisper only required me to remove the trim from the broken crisper and replace it on the new. The hinge on the deli cooler lid was more complicated. I had to take all the bottom drawers and shelves out, and then, using a socket set, remove several screws that held the old unit in. Then, perhaps most complicated of all, I had to figure out how to remove the temperature setting from the broken piece and replace it on the new piece. Once that was done, it was just a matter of screwing the piece back to the side of the fridge.
Removed screws from the broken end cap and removed it. Installed the existing internal parts in the new end cap and reinstalled the screws. Very easy and the exploded diagrams on your site made it a very simple repair.
I ordered ENDCAP WPL 12656020 which arrived only days after I ordered it It was easy to remove broken endcap - the tab which held the lid had broker off as there were only 3 bolts which needed loosening (easy to accomplish with socket set). The mechanism which adjusted how cold drawer is needs to be carefully removed. If you fiddle around with it, it will become apparent how to take it apart. Putting drawer back together was straightforward, but be gentle with the parts as they are made out of rigid plastic.
removed crispers and top shelve, removed endcap(five screws). replaced with new. honesty super easy. saved big $
very simple.........any steps I took taking a piece off - I just recalled when the time came to put the replacement pieces on.
