SOURCE: how to repair the ice dispenser door on a whirlpool refrigerator

If you will look on the bottom of the dispenser cover you will see 2 notches on the left and right side. carefully pry the cover off using a flat tip screw driver. then you will see a white switch plate that is either held on with latches or 2 srews depending on model. once this is removed you will gain access to the dispenser door. 
once you gain access I think you will find the hinges for the dispenser door are broken off. if so you will need a dispenser door repair kit form whirlpool part # 8201756 this kit includes new door and hinge repair kit. this is something you can do yourself if you are pateint and pay lose attention to detail. otherwise I would recomend a god servie company. thanks for using FixYa Peyton

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.

SOURCE: Ice won't dispense, suspect switch in door cover. how

Insert a small putty knife between the dispensor plate and the dispensor cover about 1-2 inches from the sides and press down and inwards . Do this carefully because there are 2 plastic "clips" at the bottom . Once bottom is free , lift upwards and the cover will come off . Remove the plug and it's free . There is a white contraption , large , that have 2 rods the micro switches clip onto and sometimes , the switch on the left , has the broken rod holding the micro switch . This causes no ice dispensing .

Ice dispenser flap in door will not close and stays open causing the ice maker to frost up and the unit to run all the time


You will have to open the cover on the door. W D-40 is the best lube to use. Do NOT use W D-40 where it makes contact with the ice chute!

Ice maker freezes up


Check to see if your ice door flap is closing each time after you remove your glass of ice. If it is staying open or not closing all the way, then this is your problem. You will need to dismantle the water and ice through the door assembly to see what your problem is. This is pretty involved on most refers and there are too many ways these are built to tell you how without a model number. Be advised that ice build up in the crusher can happen with normal usage and no mechanical problems. If this is just an intermittent problem it is probably caused by a piece of ice jamming your ice door flap open long enough for hot moist air to get into your ice bin and cause it to refreeze as a solid ice mass. When you are done getting ice, reach up inside your door and make sure no ice is stuck in the door. A pain to do, but the alternative is to dump all your ice and clean out your crucher every 1 to 6 months when it occurs. Good Luck Appliance Specialists

The ice dispenser door stays open. Selenoid works


This is due to a rusted solenoid plunger .You will need to remove the top freezer door hinge cover ( 1 screw ) , and disconnect the plug there . This will remove power to the dispensor . Using a screwdriver , insert it just behind the dispensor board , and twist , to pry the board off . Remove the 3 plugs there , and remove the board . Remove the 4 screws on the white cover , and slide the cover out and off . In the top right , in the dispensor area , you will see the solenoid and plunger . 3 screws hold the solenoid on . Lift the flap , and the plunger will lift off . Part number for solenoid and plunger is WR62X10055 . The closing spring is probably good , and if you are pushing the flap closed , you are moving the plunger itself , instead of it gliding inside the solenoid , to the closed position .

Frost building up in ice maker exit shoot and


Look into the dispensor , and see if the door flap is closing , or letting warm air in which will cause the frost buildup . If not closing completely , remove the top cover on the freezer door hinge , and unplug the plug . This will remove power to the door . Use a small screwdriver , and insert under the freezer door dispensor control board , and pry outward . Remove the 3 plugs on the board . Next , remove the 4 screws holding the white dispensor cover , and slide outward . At the top right , you will see a solenoid and plunger , which control the door flap . Usually , this plunger rusts on the solenoid . Replace both , the solenoid and plunger ( come together in kit ) Pt # WR62X10055 . Re-assemble in reverse .

Ice flap door won't close - Freezer and ice maker frost up


Every time you use the ice dispensor , when the flap opens , cold air will fall inside the enclosed dispensor cover . This cold air , mixed with the warm outside air , produces moisture inside the cover . After so long , this moisture starts turning to rust , causing the solenoid and plunger to rust . G E has no "fix" for this problem yet . My suggestion , would be to drill holes in the bottom of the dispensor enclosure (white plastic enclosure , held on by 4 screws ) at certain points , so that the cold air will fall thru the cover , instead of staying in the enclosure . This is something I have to try on customers refrigerators for a while , before I send this Idea to G E . To answer your question , yes , I is normal to replace every couple of years ,.....for now anyway .

Ice maker not working


then you either after doing this have a water to the ice maker problem, or an ice maker issue
go to the water valve and disconnect the small plastic line at the water valve and with a cheater cord connect it to the water valve, naturaly remove the factory connector at the water valve first and plug your cheater cord into the ac if you get water out of the valve the valve is good if you do not the valve is bad

if you get water out of the valve then you have a problem in the ice maker IF the line to the ice maker is clear and no obstructions

FLAP IN DOOR FOR ICE WILL NOT STAY CLOSE


The ice maker may need to be reset or the ice dispenser lever pulled. You posted on the samsung unit page, so I'm giving you the site to purchase anything from: samsungparts .com. The troubleshooting for pulling the lever is basically to watch the flap to see if it moves when lever is pulled. If it doesn't move, write here for more troubleshooting or call samsung.
