Strain relief part on ice/water dispenser
Model Number: ED2KVEXVQ01 Brand:
1 - 5 years
I have a Whirlpool side by side fridge with ice/water door dispenser. My wife was getting water when suddenly a black approximately 1" piece fell out of the dispenser onto the tray. I looked at the Whirlpool schematic and it seems it is the strain relief - Whirlpool part number 2195051.
Does anyone know the following:
1. Is it absolutely necessary for me to replace this part or if I leave it off will it damage with dispenser later.
2. Can I replace the piece myself? It's not broken and I can see up inside the dispenser where it belongs.
3. If I can put it back myself, what's the easiest way to do so?
