This looks like the new wpl design with the "icebox" in the ff section. Maybe AJ has a manual. Let us know what u find.

I went to repair one and looked like a fool, the water solenoid was buried in the fridg section behind panels that defied removal.
 The mechanical breakdown gave no hint how to take it apart!

It happens, just think though the next time you run into one you will look like the Pro you are.
Will have to check later to see if I can find the service manual.

So what was all wrong with it? You replaced the water solenoid to repair it?

I think this model started out in life as a Maytag Ice2o. Never saw too many of them but I remember the hidden water valve.
