Hoping someone out there has a solution to my puzzle concerning my Kenmore/Whirlpool Elite ice maker issue.
I’m trying to remove the ice maker completely and install the new one. However I cannot figure out how the wiring harness plug is disconnected. As shown in photo, the plug is behind a plastic cover. That cover DOESN’T want to come off to allow me to get to the plug connector. I’ve tried squeezing it, rotating it, pulling it, etc. but it won’t budge even though it moves loosely in place. I see no tabs or any other locking mechanism.
I’ve been all over the web looking for a video or instructions but all of them show a different location where ice maker is installed. Thus ice maker is in the door and not mounted in the freezer compartment. The freezer compartment would be an easy 15 minute job since there isn’t anything covering the connector but mine isn’t like that.
The replacement ice maker understandably uses the main plug harness end to connect everything. If I used the other end of the harness then I would have to swap out a few parts from the old ice maker which defeats the purpose of getting a new one.
Hopefully someone out there has experience with this type of installation and can tell me what I need to do to remove the cover over the plug connection.
I’ll post photos ASAP since I’m on my phone and currently don’t have ability to add photos here now.
