Question about Whirlpool ED2FHEXN Side by Side Refrigerator
Whirlpool ED5GTGXNQ00 side by side pin retainer is broken off of ice maker dispenser housing. It holds the door flapper for the ice dispensor. The repair guy says that I have to replace the WHOLE FREEZER DOOR, because of this tiny little plastic pin retainer. I really want to be able to fix this as I still have all the parts and glued the plastic thing back, but I don't know how to get in there. Some one posted a model number for the kit a while back and when I go on the whirlpool site it doesn't come up. Where and how do I order the kit, and does it come with instructions.
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.

The correct part to fix the broken housing is 8201756. The other part listed is just a replacement for the ice maker door and does not fix the broken housing.
8201756 comes with directions and with a little work fixes the problem. I found the part in many places but picked it up on ebay for $40.00.

Kenmore 106.45436400 same as Whirlpool ED5GTGXNQ00 side by side pin retainer is broken off of ice maker dispenser housing. It holds the door flapper for the ice dispenser. Sears says that I have to replace the WHOLE FREEZER DOOR, because of this tiny little plastic pin retainer. Sears no-customer support says that there isn't a fix--tough luck. Whirlpoor says it's Sear's problem. Help!!

You don't have to replace the whole door. There is a kit that comes with instuctions. You can get it at www3.sears.com and the part # is 2206423 and switches over to #8201649 and is called door mechanism assembly. It is $42.99. Use # 2206423 for lookup purposes. Hope this helps.
