It's pretty easy to remove by yourself. DO NOT force it or it will probably break. Nice and easy will do it. You'll need a flat headed screw-driver and a towel.
-There are 4 retaining tabs. 2 on top and 2 on the bottom.
-Remove the drip tray in the dispenser area
-Start with the bottom. Before starting, look underneath the surround (yes--bend down, stoop or lie on the floor -- your preference) You will see 2 thin slots. That's exactly where the tabs are. Do one tab at a time.
-Place the folded towel under the surround at the same time you are placing the screwdriver tip gently at the slot---DON'T apply pressure to the screw-driver yet.
(The towel will protect the paint and by being folded will provide a slight leverage for the screwdriver) Hold the towel against the door with the same hand you're holding the screw-driver with. If you can't....then cry for help.
-With your free hand press down firmly on the lower part of the surround (where you removed drip tray from) ...at the same time GENTLY pry with the screw-driver.
It shout pop out pretty easily.
-Repeat for the other bottom tab.
-For the top tabs, lift the entire surround up and then out.
-Remove the wiring harness and VOILA!!!
-Show off to your wife.

The problem is most likely at the water inlet valve located at the floor at the back of the refrigerator. These valves have a seal that should close off after use but sometimes stick or get a foreign object in the seat. It is intermittent causing only an occasional leak. Sadly, there is no service to the valve and you can only replace it. Good luck, AJ

Tips for a great answer:
You could have a clog in the housing underneath the dispenser where the water flows through a hose into the tub. Pull the dispenser drawer completely out. There is a tab that needs to be depressed to release the drawer and remove it. Check the opening at the bottom of the housing just inside the dispenser housing opening to see if a small sock or garment is clogging this opening. Reach down into this opening to see if an item is inside the hose. This is the normal issue that will cause water to leak out of the dispenser housing.
Wash the dispenser drawer thoroughly with warm water. Make sure that you pull off the siphon covers and wash all siphon holes. This process is described in your owner's manual. Replace the dispenser drawer and try the washer again. If the dispenser still leaks, then I recommend calling a service technician to diagnose and fix this problem.

and water dispensers are convenient to have on your refrigerator, but
can also cause a lot of aggravation if they are not functioning
If your water valves are not defective and you are still
experiencing water or ice delays, you may have a clog in your
refrigerator hose line.
Instructions and material needed to fix it up.
