To remove the entire cold water unit, just open the refrigerator door and remove the bottom crispers. Look at the back wall to locate the water reservoir. Remove this reservoir and you'll see there are 2 water lines going to it which go through the floor. One goes to the bottom door hinge and up to the dispenser, and the other goes back to the electronic water valve on the back of the refrigerator down by the compressor. Pull the refrigerator out, remove the lower back access panel and disconnect the water line coming from the water reservoir over at the water valve. Next, disconnect the water line below the door that goes up to the dispenser. Now you can just grab the reservoir and pull hard to remove it with the water lines. Use silicone to plug the hole in the bottom of the refrigerator where the water lines went through the liner. We are on the honor system here.
