SOURCE: Ice dispenser door hinge bracket broken

I repaired this problem on my Whirlpool fridge with a metal bracket that I designed and installed myself (see photo). I can supply detailed, step-by-step instructions, complete with lots of photographs, to do this repair. I get these brackets water-jet cut in quantity so the quality will be good.
I will sell the instructions, bracket, and attachment screw for $70, or a more complete kit with the bonding compound, drill bit, and chisel (so all you need is a drill and screwdriver) for $100. I think this is fair for the development time, prototypes, and mass production costs involved, and is far cheaper than the $560 Whirlpool wants for a new door. You can do this repair with the freezer door in place, and it should take you only about 2 hours, not counting the 24 hrs to wait on the bonding compound to set up.
E-mail me (jeff at lentzclan.com) if you're interested, and please put "refrigerator" in the subject line. This repair was done on Whirlpool side-by-side refrigerator model ED5JHGXRQ (white), but should also work on ED5JHGXRT (Biscuit), ED5JHGXRB (Black), and ED5JHGXRL (Stainless-VCM).ae8679c.jpg

Driver side window bracket


That is usually a big job. If you can get the door pad off maybe the front or rear track can be fixed. At leased the window can be put back temporarily. Most door pads have 2 or 3 screws. (look in holes). The electric switches should pop up and remove wire connectors. With a flat tool ,go around door pad edge and pop up clips. .Then lift pad up off top. Tricky Buisiness.

I just got a new whirlpool dishwasher and it is leaking water from under the cabinet when operating. When I took off the small panel on the bottom of the DW I could see a drip coming from above somewhere...


Hello

Too much detergent can cause over-sudsing, which causes detergent suds and water to leak out of the door. Whirlpool recommends that you use between 0 and 6 grains per gallon for soft to medium water and between 7 and 12 grains per gallon for medium to hard water. Only use fresh detergent, as old detergent can also cause suds. Keep large pots and pans away from the dishwasher door. Water can bounce off of these items and exit through the seal. Always place dishes in the lower rack to prevent the spray arm from ejecting water right onto the door.

The door gaskets create a seal around your door, preventing water from escaping. If the gaskets are brittle or torn, you must replace them. Clean the gaskets if detergent or food particles are stuck to them. Level the cabinet if the dishwasher is unlevel, which can cause water to squeeze through the door. You can raise or lower the dishwasher feet. Tighten the door latch, if loose. Water temperature above 120 degrees Fahrenheit can also cause leaks. Test the water temperature by running the hot water faucet in your kitchen. Insert a waterproof thermometer into the water. Lower the temperature setting on your hot water heater if too warm.

Your Whirlpool dishwasher can also leak if the tub is filling up with too much water. Check the water inlet valve and the float switch. If either one of these components is stuck, the tub overfills. Replace the component. Examine the water inlet valve if water is dripping from this part. The valve has a tube that goes from it to the dishwasher. Replace the tube if split or punctured.

Your dishwasher has a main tub seal. This seal must stay wet, or it becomes brittle and cracks. Unplug the dishwasher, and remove the spray arm, lower rack and impellers. Replace the seal. You have both inlet and drainage hoses on the rear of your machine. These hoses leak if they are split or not connected properly. Replace any damaged or crushed hoses, and tighten the connections if loose. Verify that the washers inside the hoses are installed properly.

I have a whirlpool model er8xymsloo and there is water on the top shelf in the refridgerator just below the frezzer. I cant figure out where it is coming from and what is leaking.


Remove the food and the ice maker from the freezer ( if equiped ) . Remove the rear freezer panel . Using a hair dryer , start in the middle , below the coils , defrosting , until you see the drain hole . Use hot water to help defrost the hole . Once water starts going thru the hole , use a small hose inserted into the hole , and blow thru , to remove any unseen debris in the drain line . Use an ALUMINUM or COPPER solid wire , 14-16 guage , with the insulation completely off , and insert one end into the drain hole as far as possible without any force . Wrap the other end about 1 1/2 to 2 turns , around the black rod (defrost heater) , above the hole . When refrig goes into defrost , the heat will transfer from the heater , to the wire , keeping the hole from freezing up again .

I keep finding about 1/8 inch of water in the vegetable bins of my Whirlpool fridge, and 1/4 inch water below the bins. Why?

Interior door handle is broken in saab 93s how do you fix problem


I'VE GOT A SIMPLE SOLUTION TO THIS PROBLEM!
August 16, 2012

My Mother-in-law has a 2004 Saab 9-3 convertible, she wasn't able to find a fix for this problem because the plastic bracket that holds the door cable in place on the inside of the door panel broke off and it's actually part of the door panel itself. Since the bracket broke, pulling on the inside door handle would no longer pull the cable that's need to open the door.
She was out of luck and had to roll the window down to use the outside door handle to exit the car (that gets annoying really fast).
Basically without rigging it, she would've needed a replacement door panel because of this ridiculos design flaw (around $600 + installation if you could even find the panel, she couldn't because Government Motors SUCKS!) .

I simply used an L bracket that I had (can find it at any Home Depot, Lowe's etc.) and used two sets of channel lock pliers to bend it into a "squared" J shape. I then drilled 2 holes into the inside metal door frame and used 2 sheet metal screws to secure the bracket to the door frame. To make sure that I mounted the new and improved bracket that I created in the proper location (not too much or too little slack). I simply made a template with a sheet of paper by tracing where the old molded plastic bracket was in relation to the two screw holes of the door panel ( actually had to mount the bracket about an inch forward to make up the difference since the bracket is no longer attached to the door panel).
I also had to drill the **** in the bracket a bit to make sure the cable wouldn't get hung up on it when pulled, but in all it only took 15 mintues to redesign GM's crappy design.
Here are 2 pictures, hope this will solve your issue with your broken handle.

The flap on the ice despenser is not closing and water is forming in the pan below. Is there an scamatic of the door ice maker despenser?


If you can look up and see the flap is loose or sloppy, you need one of these two kits. Kit # 8201649 is the chute door, door bracket, spring, damper pot.
Kit # 8201756 contains all the above plus a metal bracket designed to replace the housing bracket, the door pivot pin and a metal brace.
