We have a Whirlpool model ET1MHKXMT01. Apparently an aftermarket top freezer icemaker was installed in unit and had been working fine for years.
At some point moving the fridge appears to have caused the a line that runs into the back of the ice maker on the freezer to disconnect, possibly break. We tried to reconnect it but the line keeps popping out now whenever the ice maker pulls water. A repair guy told me there is some clip missing he can't find anywhere.
I called a parts for whirlpool but hey said the original does not show these parts.
I wondering if that port is part of the fridge or the icemaker? Note a metal ring inside the water line. wondering if these are factory or aftermarket and what fix i can make? do most after market ice makers come with this hardware?
Below are images of after market ice makers. Are we missing any of these parts. Is this a repair we can do from the back?
My water line end looks like this (NOT ACTUAL):
