What took the longest was emptying the very full freezer. One screwdriver. Note, three power cables included with the new unit. All were too short. The "old" cable showed no signs of wear,so i used it. Making ice in ~30 minutes!!! (-:

I printed your diagram of the complete assembly for reference when installing the new part. I was able to get the part number from the diagram and ordered it online. I received the new part in 2 days. I removed the ice from the ice maker's bin and kept it in the freezer. I removed the old drum and auger from the ice maker assembly and installed the new drum #4388736. I looked at your diagram to make sure I had all of the blades in their right orientation. After the drum and auger assembly was installed, I placed the ice that I had saved into the ice bin and slide it back into place. I then tested if the assembly would now drop ice and also if it would crush the ice, which i do not use very opten, because I know that using the ice crush mode will prematurely wear the drum assembly. The drum and auger gets much more stress when it is crushing ice. After the icemaker worked flawlessly, I rolled the refrigerator back into its regular position along side the cabinets. I was very pleased with the part and the excellent service that PartSelect.com provided. The price was less than I thought I would have to pay. Also, the company provides most of the individual parts of the ice maker assembly. Normally, when I would shop at a designated Whirlpool distributor, I would have to purchase the entire assembly costing 3 or 4 times higher than the price of the individual part. I, will now, always purchase my parts from PartSelect.com.

April 2012
My ice maker (2001 Whirlpool Gold side by side) stopped making ice. Using the model number (inside fridge, right wall), Google found the partselect website containing diagrams of the entire refrigerator. Using the "freezer liner" and "ice maker" diagrams, I discovered that electronic control boards, control and motor assembly, and water inlet valves could cause the ice maker to stop making ice. Since the LED lamps in the freezer liner were not working (diagnosis described as part of the emitter control board description), I replaced the emitter control boards first. After installation, the lights worked properly, according to the diagnosis, but still no ice. It seemed logical to next replace the control and motor assembly. About two hours after installation, the ice maker produced cubes, and has been working since. Each of the two parts orders from PartSupply came within 3 days, and were the correct parts for my machine. Installation illustrations were accurate and helpful

Ice maker not working

Ordered the part recommended by your site, followed the instructions of the associated video and new ice is piling up right now. My only concern was no action for a time right after the install. Turns out the temperature of the freezer must drop back down to ?? before the ice maker starts to work. I was thinking maybe the electrical connection was not good. I choose to wait a night and see if change would occur. Freezer cooled down and ice maker started.

Ice Build up in the ice cube storage bin

If the ice maker mold develops a hole it will leak water causing an ice icicle to form on the bottom. If this is your symptom its time to replace the ice maker. The first step is to shut off water supply and unplug refrigerator. Next loosen the two upper screws and try not to remove them. On the bottom towards the front of the ice maker there is one screw. This is mounting bracket screw, remove it completely. At this point hold the ice maker a push it upwards to remove it from the upper mounting brackets. Once it is free from the mounting brackets you will have access to the wiring harness. The plug clips in place so you will have to spread it while unplugging it. Most likely you will have to remove shut-off arm and may be the heat shield as well from old unit. You may have to tug them some what to remove them from the front of the old ice maker. Suggest wearing work gloves for this step to avoid being cut. Install parts on the new ice maker by snapping them in place. Verify that the new icemaker has the correct wiring harness if so you are all set to install it. Place the new unit in the compartment and plug it in. Make sure it is also lined up in the rear where the water tube is a well. Now line up the upper screws with both support brackets and push down gently to lock them in. Install lower mounting screw. Snug up the upper screws enough so the unit is flush to the freezer wall and feels secure. Turn on water supply and plug in the refrigerator. Your Done And A Hero to your better half.

All you need is nut driver. Top hinge has 3 screws. Once you remove the screws, lift door. It is light. I place door of my sofa. I removed screws and pried the cam insert with a spatula. You can also you flat screwdriver. I also replace the other piece located at bottom of refrigerator. Now place door back onto metal rest. May need someone near floor to guide you. Once on the rest, close door and replace top screws. Forgot to mention that I emptied door shelves before removing door.
