If you pull the refrigerator forward, you'll need to start by turning the water off to the refrigerator. Next, follow the water line to the bottom of the refrigerator in the far back left corner. There is a valve that looks like the part in the picture I attached below. I drew a red arrow to where the water line connects from your house to this valve. Just use a crescent wrench and unscrew the water line from the valve counter-clockwise. Then you can just unplug the refrigerator out and remove the refrigerator so that you can install the new one.
