Thanks Tyler some of the video was applicable with respect to replacing the actuator itself. However, my unit has a one piece escutcheon/bezel unlike the unit in the video. I need to know how to remove it without damaging so I can have access to the unit's mounting screws. I tried replying to you earlier and was kicked out to another technician!!! Please reply as this is the crux of the requirement.
The escutcheon is ONE piece covering the bottom mounting screws unlike the video which shows a separate water tray with integral bottom bezel piece covering the bottom 3 mounting screws. It is like a one piece integral cover plate/trim for the whole unit! The water tray on my unit is a separate piece that simply inserts in the bottom of the unit. You cannot pull anything forward to remove it and expose the screws. It doesn't look anything like the one in the video
Tyler, I see why you're so insistent. I have the same Sears diagram from the original documentation package which is nothing like the actual unit. Again it is one whole piece of bezel/escutcheon covering the periphery of the unit and has an integral label module unlike the separate part 14. Just so we're on the same page, it does not have a separate part 23 or part 14.... Somehow that one piece bezel/escutcheon assembly clips to the unit and it has to be removed in it's entirety before you can access the 3 screws. How do I do that? Anyway to send you a photo so you can believe what I'm saying? Surely there other manufacturers who have this similar assembly.
Tyler, that did it! Successfully removed the bezel per the last video. I guess Kenmore used both Frigidaire and Whirlpool pieces in their design. Thanks for hanging in there...a lesson to both of us! I will rate you accordingly...keep up the good work.
