I bought the roll pin becasue it seemed required for the solenoid, I was replacing. But I have no clue where or how it should be installed. My installation was a mess, because I can't get my arm to fit around the solenoid. Is the pin suppose to help?
Answer Hopeless, You probably don't need the roll pin. I can't tell where you went wrong, but here are the solenoid access and repair instructions from the manual "Dispenser D/C Solenoid (some models)
1. Remove dispenser facade (see dispenser facade removal)you've done this already. 2. Remove dispenser water tube clip. 3. Remove water tube from assembly collar. 4. Remove wires from dispenser light socket. 5. Disconnect ground wire from solenoid assembly. 6. Disconnect wires from D/C solenoid. 7. Remove screws holding D/C solenoid and ice chute assembly. 8. Remove complete assembly.
9. Rotate to backside and remove screws holding D/C solenoid to ice chute assembly. 10.Lift ice chute door to release plunger from retainer.
11. Slide D/C solenoid out of the side of ice chute assembly. 12. Reverse procedure to reassemble." I think this will get you where you need to be, Thanks and Good Luck.
