To put the new tube in, I cut the old tube before the Y piece(screw to door part) and taped the new hose to it. I pulled the old tube from the bottom of the door, while gently pushing/feeding the new hose in until the new hose was at the bottom of the door. Connected the new hose(top/bottom) and turned the water back on. All of 7 minutes.Thanks for the fast service...

Didn't know if part was replaced from the front or back of door. Removed back/inside first. Good excuse to clean mold found in places not normally seen. The only real problem was getting the face off the dispenser without breaking it. I now know it snaps off from the bottom. To replace one little nozzle you have to replace about 10' of tube. When I pulled the old tube out. I attached fishing line to it and used to fishing line to help feed the new tube through the door.
1. Turn off water supply to refrigerator.2. Unscrew water nozzle from dispenser.3. Remove grill on bottom front of refrigerator.4. Unscrew tubing at the left side of the union.5. Unclip tubing from the refrigerator frame.6. Pull tubing out of the dispenser about 6 inches.7. Cut off nozzle with scissors.8. Insert 1/4" diameter x 1" long molly bolt about halfway into end of tubing where it was cut.9. Insert the remainder of the molly bolt into the end of the new tubing.10. Pull the old tubing through the bottom of the door.11. When the new tubing is pulled all the way through the door disconnect from the old tubing. Remove molly bolt if it is in the new tubing.12. Remove the ferrel from the old tubing and use to attach new tubing to the union.13. Connect the water nozzle to the dispenser. 14. Insert new tubing into the clips on the refrigerator frame.15. Re-install grill.16. Turn on water.
shut off water supply behind fridge then released trapped water pressure in the line at the dispenser. Locked off dispenser controls (push button switch). Removed nozzle retaining screw and pulled out nozzle approx. 3 in. to cut off tubing at black pipe so as to use the old pipe as a guide/pull (fish) for the new pipe by joining the end of the new nozzle to the cut and of the old pipe with electrical tape.Then pulled the old pipe from bottom of fridge while simultaneously feeding/pushing new pipe from top. I had to remove lower grate on fridge to access the pipe on bottom. Remaining coupling connection on bottom was done by hand to avoid stripping plastic coupling.
Turn off water supply line fridge. Removing front panel is a must to allow acces to spout and water line. Be careful not to crack front panel $90, it snaps in from the botton, slide a stiff putty knife along bottom edge and gently pry outward to remove. Remove 2 screws that hold spout in place, then cut water line right behind spout. The tricky part is fishing water line down through door. You need to splice new line to old with double sided screw or something with threads that will prevent the lines from pulling apart, then pull water line from bottom of door by hinge, very tight when pulling through hinge opening. You will need to remove vented dust cover at botton of doors to acces the water line. The line has a threaded coupling so unscrew and drain water then cut new line to length. There is a small metal insert in old line that needs to be removed and inserted into new line before attaching coupler. I could perform this in half the time now that I have done it once.
the parts sent included two replacement kits which at first was confusing. I determined that I only needed the one with the black tubing for my Kenmore refrig. Turned off water supply and vacuumed up all the dust bunnys behind refrig. Removed bottom grate on refrig where black tubing attaches at the other end. Released water left in tubing at dispenser. I did not have to remove the front panel. Removed one screw attaching the nozzle to the dispenser. Decoupled tubing at the far end, more water came out here too. Pulled out upper end of tubing a couple of inches and snipped off. Attached tubing to new tubing with thin wire (as others here recommended) and had my husband pull at far end while I pushed slowly at the dispenser end. Once through reattached screw at top and recoupled at the bottom. Mission accomplished!
First, turn of the water supply. Then remove the snap on grill from the bottom front of the refrigerator. Disconnect the black hose from the white hose and drain the hoses into a suitable recepticle. Then remove the 1/4" screw that holds the nozzle in place. Cut the hose off just behind the nozzle bracket and tape the end of the new hose to the now exposed end of the existing hose. From the bottom of the door you can now gently pull out the old hose while pulling in the new one. Re-attach the new hose to the existing white hose and replace the 1/4' screw to the new nozzle bracket. I reccoment using 1" wide tape and only going around the tubes once. Too much tape and you won't be able to feed it through the small hole at the bottom of the door. Have someone feed the hose from the top as you gently pull from the bottom.
part arrived within 24 hours. 1. remove plastic front of freezer door water and ice dispenser by looking at bottom edge of plastic for two slots within which to place a stiff scraper blade. very difficult to pop loose and very fragile plastic so take care not to break it. it just pops off two spots on the bottom side and hangs from the top no screws or anything.2. remove the two screws holding the water dispenser spout in place. oh yeah don't forget to turn the water off.3. this is a long plastic water tube that runs from the dispenser thru a plastic tube channel set in the solid foam core of the door thru the bottom hinge and connects to the water inlet junction.a. this replacement must be pulled from the dispenser area thru the door and out the bottom but it will not fit without cutting off the end of the spout. the hole in the hinge that it passes thru at the bottom of the door is to tight to allow anything other than the thickness of the tubing.b. pull the spout end of the tubing upward after disconnecting at the bottom in front behind the air grill. if it moves freely you are in luck - if it does not move freely then it is taped in place on the back of the dispenser area and now that whole assembly has to be unscrewed from the front of the freezer door in order to remove the tape so that the tubing can be pulled thru.4. once the tubing pulls easily as short distance in either direction it is time to attach the new tubing to the old tubing and pull it out the bottom of the door. i tried to use tape but it pulled off when i got to the door hinge on the bottom and it would not fit thru the hinge.a. on my model even one layer of tape would not fit thru the hinge. so i put some bricks under the freezer door to hold it up and removed the bottom hinge off of the tubing that was disconnected only a short distance away.5. use tape or place a screw with the head removed into both the old tubing and the new tubing so it can be pulled from the bottom moving the new tubing into place.mine broke off in the middle of this process and i had to remove the freezer door. take it completely apart to expose the conduit the tubing slides thru, then run an electrical fish tape thru the conduit and drag the new tubing thru, not a fun process but doable - just takes a bunch of extra time. 6. once the tubing was out the bottom i could then simply thread it thru the hinge easily and reassemble everything.
Cut off old nozzle. Tried electricians tape to join the old and new tubing for fishing, but tube with tape on it, wouldn't fit through hole in hinge at bottom of door. Fished nylon twine through new tube then old tube from dispenser end and was able to feed old tube out and new tube in. Fast and easy. Took more time to clean all the dust and dirt I found down under, than to make the repair.
I removed the screw holding the nozzle in place, and removed the other end of the line under the refrigerator to give me some slack. Then I clipped the nozzle off of the black line and taped the new line to the end I cut off with electrical tape. Then I just snaked it down through the hole with me pulling from the bottom and my wife pushing from the top and reattached both ends. Make sure you don't use too much tape becaue it won't fit throught the hole at the bottom. I taped them together at an angle so not to make tape too thick. Also, you can snake it back from the bottom if the tape breaks and the old line comes out of the fridge.
first I turned off the water supply then I removed screw that was holding the nozzle and pulled out the tube then I pried out the face plate by prying from the bottom with a thin screw driver then I unpluged the wire harness so I could access the black tube guide that the white tube was housed in before it was cut I pushed the new white tube down threw the black tube and out the bottom hinge I replaced the nozzle screw plugged the harness back in replaced the face plate went to the bottom and connected the tube to the other half replaced the bottom molding and turned on the water
we read on this site how to run the tube down thru the door but we had some problems. we used tape to put together the old and new hose to snake it down and the old hose pulled apart from the new and was stuck in the hole at the bottom of the door. my husband propped up the door and took the bottom hinge off to get to the hole where the tape was stuck and I was able to get a hold of it to finish pulling it through. I think we had to thick of tape wrapped around the two pieces.
1. PUsh the Lock button so the water will not run.2.Remove the screw holding the nozzle.3. Remove the Grill4. Disconnect the black water tube. Pull the female part of the union off the old tube and hold it for the new tube.5. PUll it the tube out from the nozzle end.6. Snake the new tube into the hole and shove it through until it comes out the door hinge port at the bottom of the door.7. Continue pushing and pulling the tube until the nozzle is in position.8.Test fit the new tube and cut a short piece off to fit properly.9. Slide the female part of the union onto the new tube. Insert it onto the union and tighten.10. Insert the screw that holds the nozzle in place and tighten.11. Push the on unlock button and fill a glass with water.12. Check for leaks. If no leaks reinstall the grill.Job done.
The nozzle of the water dispenser broke. I ordered the part which arrived the next day. I did not use the white line, only the black. I turned the water off, then I removed the screw under the broken nozzle and cut off it off from the line. I took a new screw and cut off the top with pliers, then twisted half of a screw in the old line and inserted the other half in the new line and pulled the line from the bottom corner of the refrigerator and connected it to the white line under the grid. Screwed the new nozzle back to the lever, replaced the grid and turned water on.
The ice guide slipped into place and latched into the arm with no problems. The nozzle went in so easy once I figured out that it was run through a tube in the door, I thought at first I was going to have to take the door apart. The biggest surprise was the how quickly I got the parts, I recieved in 1.5 days. Thats amazing. Thank You.Stan
