Thanks, this is fantastic detail. It sent me off elsewhere on the net to look for Whirlpool ice maker manuals and procedures, and I see explanations that are consistent with yours.
I had originally thought that I had to get to the back of the ice maker, but you have shown that I just need to remove the front panel.
