Them cabinets are tricky to be sure. I always open the lid so I can look down at the base and get it close. Then give it kick to settle it in and make sure I do not pinch the water level hose. Have you seen this video:

About the icons: The beer is tip link, if a tech saves ya some money buy em a 6 pack. The small green square=personal message. The green dot is a link to my web page on appliance repair and other general BS I love to post. The letter sends me email.
I love fan letters! LOL
