The plastic part at the end of the auger has broken (355) and I can't figure out how to put the new one in. I have the new part. Can you explain how I can replace the part? Thank you. Don L.
ANSWER Don, The part number you supplied is a complete ice bin assembly. If you want to repair the ice bin and replace the drive cup WR17X11459 you will need to dismantle the bin assembly and replace the parts as needed. Heres some basic help, "1. Remove the upper ice bucket tray. 2. Slide out the ice dispenser assembly.3. Remove the ice cube solenoid linkage Phillips head screw and slide the linkage back. 4. Remove the ice crusher cover Phillips head screws (2) and remove the cover. 5. With a pair of pliers, twist off the backing plate tabs located on either side of the crusher. 6. With 2 small flat-blade screwdrivers, unlock the ice crusher locking tabs located at either side of the ice crusher. 7. Lift the ice crusher out of the bucket. 8. Remove the ice crusher back cover. 9. Remove the locking ring from the ice crusher auger. 10. Remove the plastic nut with a pair of pliers by turning it clockwise. 11. Remove the spacers and blades. The blades are numbered for reassembly."
