Yes, does it just slide in the base of the appliance or are we missing bolts, screws or other faseners
Expert:  Bryan replied 3 years ago.
Well it slides in underneath in the front just below the freezer compartment but there are screws that hold it, there are two hoses plastic water lines I should say one is bigger than the other, those two connected together right now to bypass the filter? Or are they just hanging there and the water is off?
Customer: replied 3 years ago.
Yes, the hoses were connected together. One I believe had a blue tip and the other a red tip. Sorry, but the refregerator is at my sons house and I'm working on memory.
Expert:  Bryan replied 3 years ago.
Okay the hose are connected together with what's called a quick connect, to release the two hoses pushed the blue ring in and pull the line out, then do the same on the other side of the connector, two install them on the filter they just push in, just slide them in the the filter connectors and then make sure there and tight by pulling back on the lines in they should be locked in, then slide the filter assembly in and there are probably two screws still in the front of the refrigerator where the filter lines up they may be missing however you can use screws that are long enough and will screw into those holes, you should also be a handle the goes on the and of the new filter, it slides on the and of the filter so you can turn easier, slide the filter in all the way and turn it clockwise until it locks into place, that's it, not a very difficult job to do, here's the diagram if that helps,

How do I print the picture that goes along with your explanation. I only can print the upper left hand protion of the picture. Also, if the screw is missing to secure the holder, is it still posible to just insert the holder in the refregerator without the screw?

it's it's a good idea to put screws in it to hold if you can because as you call the water this will sometimes vibrate or move because of the water pressure all off a sudden going through it in this may eventually cause the plastic line to wear and possibly leak or break,
