There are 2 notches on the bottom of the dispenser front insert a flat blade screw driver and gently pry it off. chances are you are going to need a dispenser door repair kit pt#8201756 IN ORDER TO COMPLETE THIS REpair in most cases the plastic hinge for the door breaks off causing the door to fall off. good luck peyton

Remove the dispenser cover by gently prying starting at the bottom going round and round a little at a time to prevent from breaking it. When it's off the screws will be exposed to access the other components.

Ice Dispenser not dispensing ice


Remove the top freezer door hinge cover and disconnect the plug there . This will remove power to the dispensor . Remove the dispensor grill , and also the 2 screws at the bottom of the dispensor front . Lift the front up and out , and remove the plug on the front . You should now see the white switch bracket . On the left side , is the ice dispensor motor switch , when usually , one of the spears holding the switch breaks off , not allowing the ice dispensor to work . If this is the case , the part number is 2180226 . Only held on by 2 screws . When/if replaceing , be sure to put the plastic spacers in the correct position next to both switches , and be careful not to break one of the spears , holding the switches .

I need to replace the torsion spring on the ice dispenser door. I have a new spring but can't figure out how to take the front cover housing off in order to get to the spring. Thanks, Jeff


there should be two small holes on either side of the face plate,
push a small nail in those the face plate will pull off
once you have the face plate of, it should be fairly obvious how to remove the padles and springs
hope this helps

Ice Maker Works, Water Dispenser Doesn't


I have a whirlpool side by side. water and ice in front. ice working and water not. the hose is not frozen and it is not humming when you push the water dispenser. It would give us water and quit but now we have nothing.

Whirlpool In-Door-Ice® Ice Dispensing System


the dispenser front "pops" off by inserting a screwdriver under he dispenser front, look closely youll see 2 little slits where ot insert and twist from. as your inserting and twisting would be helpful to be pushing down on the top of the facade.(just plastic tabs holding on care full not to break. its pretty apparent after that. when re-installing Hang over the top and kinda give it a good smack down with the heel of your hand... but honestly before all that look at the wires under the door hinge make sure there are no cut wires. ( a natural pinchpoint created by the hinge mechanism)

Whirlpool pin retainer is broken on ice dispenser


this is easy. there is a small area beside where the piece broke off. bend a small peice of metal coat hanger at a 90 degree angle, (this is so you can make your new hole on the correct line) heat the end with a lighter, burn a smallhole thru this area beside where the previous hole existed. now throw away the old pin that you were using and use a piece of coat hanger cut to the right length. on one end bend about one half inch to 90 degree angle, feed thru new hole and thru your spring and flap and thru to opposite side hole and lastly make small bend to keep wire from sliding out. ta da, fixed. problem solved for about two cents. i have successfully repaired many of these doors.
