The Ice Machine Drain Pump Kit helps remove excess water from melting ice inside your appliance. This is a universal accessory that can be used with most 50-lb ice makers manufactured in the year 2000 or later; check to see if your model number is compatible. This pump is designed to purge excess water up to 10'H. Replacing this part will require basic hand tools, some disassembly of the ice machine and novice repair experience. You must unplug the ice machine or shut off the house circuit breaker for the appliance before installing this part. Also make sure you turn off the water supply before you begin. Helpful Tip: We also recommend using affresh® Ice Machine Cleaner* (item W11179302) to help reduce mineral deposits that can clog your appliance and affect its performance. *affresh® brand products are owned and distributed by Whirlpool Corporation.
