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.

I hope I have earned a 5 star rating. We are on the honor system here. Please remember to rate my service by selecting a star at the top or bottom of the screen before you leave today and reply back here letting me know with a rating of 1-5 stars (5 being the best). If you need anything else, just let me know. You can continue asking follow-up questions at no additional charge after rating my service if you still need assistance.
