This is a cabinet depth fridge which fits snugly into its space in the kitchen. The worst part of any repair is pulling it out into the center of the kitchen and pushing it back in. After that we took off the back cover and the part is at the lower left rear corner of the unit. It was obviously spewing water. We shut off the water to the unit and ordered a new part. When the part came, we pulled the unit back out and disconnected it. The most difficult part was that one of the connections required a half inch open-end wrench to loosen/tighten. The other connections were the pull push quick connect type. The actual repair was very easy. There are other repairs associated with the leak that will not be easy. Damaged wood floor.

Took the paper clip, pressed in through the holes on the bottom of the ice dispenser panel. Removed the four screws. Loosened the panel and removed the wires. replaced the flapper door.

Replaced the piece that I thought was bad but discovered it was not the part that needed to be replaced. Lesson learned is take the ice bucket apart to be sure what part is bad and needs replacing.

Not only was your parts selection very easy to understand,
The Video shows exactly how to install that part.

the door apart from the inside but the repair was completed
with the door closed and took about 10 to 15 min. to complete.

After identifying a likely solution using other stories on this site, I ordered the replacement valve. Very easy to repair. Just move fridge, unscrew cover in lower rear and change out part located right behind cover. I decided to change the filter at the same time because I didn't know the last time it was done. It could probably be done in 5 minutes, but if your like me you clean everything while its apart.
