First remove the drip tray.then look at the bottom of the will see two slots on either end.find a wide slotted screwdriver and stick it in.twist until it will feel like it's gonna break,but it shouldn't.depending on how old it is,whirlpool put in a heated door.the new ones don't have a heater and work alot better.i normally replace all the parts at once(comes in a nice kit).be sure to unplug it.there is 110 volts running to those switches and panel)

Ice will not dispence thru door.

Without knowing the brand and model # I can offer the most common solution.

On most "pass the ice through the door" models there is a flapper door where the ice dispenses. The spring which holds this door closed when you are not dispensing ice becomes weak allowing the flap to stay open jsut a bit. This open space will create an ice dam in teh dispenser thus not allowing the ice to dispense. The repair is generally made by replacing the flap assembly.

All the best.

Mf12568aeb lights flashing and ice door flapping

You will have to call Maytag at 1-800-688-9900...Motherboard is bad. You can pull out the little plate at the bottom of the water/ice dispenser, then unscrew the two screw. Pull on the bottom and the panel should come out. Unplug the white connector on the left. This will stop the flapping of the ice dispenser flap.

Ice maker chute icing up

The flap is probably not closing properly. Dispense some ice, then open the freezer door and look to see if the flap is still slightly open. If so, you will have to take the front cover off of the control panel and clean the muck off of the flap mechanism and also clean the solenoid. I have to do this about 2X year. Not a big job, but be careful.
