This icemaker can be used with 25-27 cubic feet refrigerators that have a vertical auger dispenser located on the freezer door. Reuse bottom bracket from the original icemaker and attach to the new.
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 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.

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.
Bless you PartSelect. Easy fix,saved Dollars. Great website. The satisfaction of fixing it myself was worth $. It is not the first time you have helped. PLEASE keep up the good work.
Took out 5 screws and replaced the unit easy as can be.
After troubleshooting to determine that I needed the Icemaker assembly, I ordered the parts early on a tuesday and they arrived the next day. Quick. Opened the box and there was no packing material, just the icemaker in the box with a slip of paper instructions with one sentence on it. Said to remove ice shield from old icemaker and install on new one. To remove the old icemaker, I first had to removing the one screw on the bottom that secured the cover over the wiring harness. Next I removed the cover by sliding it towards back of freezer section and guiding around wires. Next I depressed up on two spring clips on the bottom of the icemaker to release it from the tracks and slide the icemaker out. Be careful with the hose for the water outlet. You may have to tip it backwards to get it to clear. Once out of the tracks, I disconnected the wiring harness and removed old icemaker. I reversed the process to stall the new one after I had removed the three screws and the ice shield off the old icemaker and installed on the new one. After installation, it took about 10 minutes for the sound of water running into the trays and we had ice 30 minutes later. Worked fine and hasn't missed a beat yet.
