This part fixes the following symptoms:
I spent quite a bit of time diagnosing the problem. When the ice maker first stopped working, I noticed the fingers that push out ice where pointing straight down and frozen within the cubes. I pulled out the ice maker and let it thaw so I could move the fingers again. The gear that turns the assembly was not in the correct position after several tries, I finally realized that the heater element wasn't working, so when the fingers started to push out the cubes, they would stick and the gear became stripped.In the end, I replaced the whole unit which wasn't cheap, but was making cubes within an hour of installing the new unit.

My Ice Maker would stop making ice and the start back. Finally it quit for good and would not work any longer. The repair was as easy as everone indicated and I am sure that I saved more than half of the cost of calling a repairman. Is used a 1/4 socket and a small ratched. Took less than 15 minutes to completely change out the unit. Thanks for being on the internet. Super cost for the complet unit.
Our 2nd Ice-maker since 2003. They don't last forever. Intact, the Ice-maker takes 15 minutes to swap out. Broken, we wait for a replacement. Ordered extra Fill Cup. Not needed. Different Part broken this time! Latest Ice-maker has an extended Fill Cup so as not to Freeze up when refilling. Nice! When Trays lose their lining or Unit Freezes up, time to replace it! The Ice-maker should last longer. Maybe we expect too much. We like our ice!
First I removed the ice tray door by lifting and then releasing the hinge. Then I used a nutdriver and socket to remove three recessed screws that are located under the icemaker. I also removed the screw on the underside which holds a plastic flange in place covering the wiring harness. Remove the plastic flange and slide the icemaker out as far as possible, then disconnect the wiring harness from the icemaker. Slide the old unit out and discard. Reverse the procedure to install the new unit. Points of frustration: Disconnecting the wiring harness--it is in there mighty tight! Also, when sliding the new unit into place, clearing the rubber water spout without breaking something is somewahat of a challenge. The unit comes outeasier than it goes back in!
i ordered the instructions and then learned the icemaker assembly was bad and easily replaced it. saved money on having to hire a repairman (i am a 35 yr old pregnant woman btw :)) thanks www.partselect.com.
The video on the web site made this repair easy.
We removed the old icemaker, that was the easy part. It only has one bolt holding it in place. The tricky part was installing the new one. The replacement icemaker was a little different than the original, but it fit and works great. Simple connect the wires insert the icemaker, screw the bolt in place and viola. The shipping was so much faster than I had expected. My first order was received broken but they immediately sent a replacement and I got it the next day. It was hassle free and our first time replacing the icemaker went smoothly.
I searched the internet and found a detailed instructions list (with pics). The written instructions on Partselect.com were on the money but the pics really helped! Start to finish, the entire job took 15 minutes. If you're the least bit handy, this is an easy one!
The first maker I received was broken. The funnel at the top that directs the water into the tray was broken. I called PartSelect and told them how I had received the part and there was no problem. They shipped me a new part, and it must have been the same day as I got the replacement two days later. I was very satisfied with that quick response. I removed one screw and the cover to the wiring harness. Slid the icemaker forward and unplugged the wiring. Then removed the icemaker. I had to remove the old bracket from the assembly as the new maker did not come with one. Installed three screws in bottom of bracket then reinstalled the assembly and plugged the wiring back in. The whole process took about 10 to 12 minutes, very easy.
To get me thinking. . . Our thermostate was not working. . . It was under warrant. . Call repairman. . He came out. . Looked at it, went to supplier got a new one . . . Unplugged old thermostate and plugged in new one. . . . Charge. . . $120. 00 So when the ice maker went out I checked and it was out of warranty. . . Took off door to unit. . 2 Screws. . . Unplugged unit. . . . Ice maked is on a shelf that has notches. . . Lift up a little and slide out. . . Ordered new uniy from partselect. Attanched to shelf. . . Plugged in to electricy and installed shelf. . Prayed a lot and works . . . . Al wilson
Basically, we unscrewed the holding tray and disconnected the water supply and slid the old unit out.We then reversed procedure installing the new unit and poured some water into resevoir and waited till the ice was frozen and then reheated by the bottom section whiched allowed the tynes to cut and dump the cubes. we had previously bought and installed the motor for the old unit but after a day with no action, we brought that unit back to Sears and we ordered the whole replacement unit from PartsSelect. The part came within 3 days and we very happy with the results.
I wanted to make sure I ordered the correct icemaker, so I turned off the water to the icemaker, and turned off the icemaker switch. One screw taken out for the harness protector and the entire unit became loose, and I worked it out of the holding slot and used a really small screwdriver to separate the plug. Once the size was accurately determined, a new unit was ordered. The new unit arrived two days later and the procedure reversed itself. Twenty minutes later "I have ice" Been working well ever since
Removed the plastic service door, exposing the ice maker. Pulled the ice maker and the plastic tray it is attached to out of the freezer. Then unplugged the electrical connectioppn, which alllowed me to remove the ice maker and the plastic tray. I then used a 1/4" driver to remove 3 screws holding the ice maker to the tray and one screw that held a plastic cover over the electrical connection. Installation was everything in reverse of removal. Take care to install the water hose into the ice maker. Ice maker started working immediately.
Ordered a replacement which arrived quickly, and delivered the next day. It was not difficult, three screws to undo and one electrical connection.
refridg only 7 years old, poor design by whirlpool as this is second time ice maker failed. install was easy, hardest part was figuring out how to remove old unit. saved more than 50% of cost by doing it myself this time.
