Replacing a rear wheel will vary depending on the model. Unfortunately without a model number, I'm not able to access any information about your refrigerator. Some model will have screws holding the wheels and some can have rivets. For specific information, a complete model number will be needed.

Hi Scott - I have a similar model (#ET1FTEXMT00 Whirlpool Top-mount refrigerator) with a broken back wheel. It appears that my appliance store sold me a front wheel (it has a bracket attached to the wheel). Can you tell me if the front and back wheels are different? I hate to try this repair and find out I have the wrong part. Thank you.

A:

it is very difficult to remove the pin holding the rear wheel. I did the following: 1. put the old wheel together and traced it on a piece of 3/4 inch plywood 2 cut the wheel on a band saw and drilled a hole in the center to fit the pin.(use old wheel as guide) 3 cut the wheel thru the center to create 2 halves ( draw a thin line at the cut line so will assemble both halves correctly) 4 lift refrigerator so wheel is 2-3 inches off the floor on a 2x4 5 apply a very good wood glue to both halves of the wheel and join them together after placing them around the pin. 6 clamp together for 24 hours. 7 since I only roll it out twice a year to vacuum it has held up well

The rear wheel was not meant to break but I believe I can help you with this project.

The image below shows how the rear wheel is mounted. Most likely the rivet (part key 18) has pulled out of the bottom frame. You may simply need to reinstall the rivet.

The best access would occur if you tilted the back of the refrigerator and rest it on a wood block or something as sturdy. You'll need a flashlight most likely. If the wheel is broken then it will have to be replaced. The 4388239 wheel can be obtained from the following link: Sears PartsDirect .

The bottom frame had an opening where the wheel fits between the metal with a small hole the pivot pin slips through.

If there are any additional details I can most likely help you further.
