Sure here goes
Turn all power off and battery disconnect switch off
Remove all the door shelves
Open the door and look at the bottom of the control panel. There are 2 screws on the bottom you need to remove.
Slide the control panel straight out and the wires should be long enough to set it in the cabinet above the fridge. If not just have someone hold it because this won't take long. Watch your head on cabinet door if you leave it open (ask me how I know).
There is a screw in the top hinge pin you need to remove. Hold the door when you remove it. Unlatch the door and slide the bottom up off the bottom hinge pin. Look for a plastic spacer when you slide it up that sits on the bottom hindge pin and don't lose it. Make sure it stays on the pin.
Door is now removed. Set it aside and don't scratch the front.
Slide the new door over the bottom hinge pin. I do this by laying on the floor to make sure it is going in the proper hole and not in the groove off to the side. Have someone help you hold it if needed but I do it by myself. Its not heavy just keep it in the "almost" closed position.
Close the door and let it latch.
Reinstall the top hinge screw pin. New door is now on.
Reinstall the control panel by sliding it straight in and replacing the 2 screws. Watch that the wires are clear.
Tape up the latch crack and bottom hole at this time if you want.
Now you must remove the door panel. To do this pull straight out on the right side trim piece (see picture). Remove silver door panel and set aside. Pull straight out on left trim piece and remove.
Reverse install on new door.
Install left side trim piece by pushing straight into the slots.
Install right side trim piece
Be careful how you reinstall the door shelves because the door will not close properly if they are in the wrong position.
