Winterize ice maker household fridge

We have new Whirlpool with bottom freezer and trying figure out to cycle the solonoid to empty any water it may have. I blow out the rest of the system.

Look at the data tag on the solenoid for operating voltage(s). Apply that voltage to the solenoid for a few seconds to open the valve(s).

I can't access the wiring or the bottom water line on the solonoid without removing a panel. I don't even know if I can get at all the screws to remove the panel. I can get the solonoid loose but the hole is not big enoughto get it out. I am thinking of enlarging the hole to do that. The panel is made of aluminum and would be easier than trying remove the panel.
