It takes a 1/4 " nutdriver to take one screw out that holds the cover over the water filter. You have to come up from the botton of cover. Then take two water lines off housing , by pushing the round collar back toward the fitting,and pull fitting off housing. Then take the two screw out that hold the housing on. Make sure you have the water turned off before you start.
First I took both bolts off of the housing (holds filter) and removed two hoses by holding elbow vavle in while pulling hoses. Did the reverse to replace. The trick was knowing how to remove the elbow valves. Second there was still water leaking under the fridge, discovered it was the water inlet valve underneath. Ordered that part.
After I figured out what size nut driver to use, just unscrewed the old housing and screwed new housing back in . Put filter in housing, put top back on and cover back on. We now have water at the dispenser. All is well.
First I removed the cover for the filter.(long nut driver) then the two screws holding the filter housing, held the retaining plungers in, and removed the filter housing. Then reversed the process and put it all back together. Simple.
I removed the screws holding the shield covering the filter housing and cup. Unscrewed the cup, removed the filter. Then removed the pressure fittings holding the water lines on the housing. Then I removed the housing. Reversed the process with the new housing.
I just removed the filter and then removed the filter housing. The housing is mounted using two screws. The only difficult part was removing the elbows from the water in and out lines. I don't believe the elbows are reusable. So I would go ahead and order new elbows when replacing this part.
I used an extended socket wrench to take the cover off and then pulled the hoses from the water filter housing, used the socket wrench to remove the cracked water filter housing and put on the new on. Put the two hoses back on and then put the cover back on and that was it. The part was $34 with shipping. Works great now and saved me a lot of money on a service call!!
Be sure to shut off the water supply to the refrigerator before starting this project in case some one tries to get water thru the water dispenser before you get this replaced or you will have a fridge with a lot of water in it!Removed the screw that held the cover over the filter housing. removed the two screws holding the housing to the wall. The quick connect elbows were next removed. replaced the cracked housing with the new housing connecting the elbows first then remounted the housing to the wall. Then replaced the cover and was done in less than five minutes. Turned on water and checked for leaks
