Note: This question is for the older version of this part, but we thought you might still find it helpful
My water hose came loose from the water reservoir inside the door. How do I get to the reservoir. After removing the cover/ face of the dispenser and removing the board to the switches, I removed the four screws of the plate that secure it to the door. Do I need to remove all the internal parts to access the water reservoir? The plate does not seem to come off and still seems to have something securing it to the door.
ANSWER Jerry, Apparently you will need to fill tube fitting 8201537, this is the only water carrying component in the door, your reservoir W10526445 is located in the refrigerator compartment, on the back wall above the crisper drawers. Yes, you will need to remove all the assemblies in the dispenser. disconnect the tube connector behind the kickplate. tape a strong string or wire to the original tube and extract the assembly through the dispenser housing. Attach the string to the new tube fitting and use the string to "snake the new tube back through the door assembly and connect it as before.
