Question about Whirlpool 25.6 cu. ft. Side-by-Side Refrigerator with In-Door-Ice Dispensing System

Open Question

Whirlpool Ice Door Kit #8201756

Need some tips on installing this kit. Instructions that came with kit are poor as well as pictures. Also afraid of breaking cover on freezer door when trying to remove. This kit replaces the pivot pin retainer that closes the chute door. The new one is metal with two sided tape so placement is critical. Has anyone done this before? Any help would be appreciated.

SOURCE: replacing door chute on kenmore refrigerator 57562792

first of all unplug the refrig.

look at the bottom of the disp cover and you will find 2 slots for you to slide in a flat tip screw driver. carefully pry the bottom of the cover loose 1 side at a time.once this is loose, either remove the 2 screws that hold the switch housing in place or release the clips ( depends exactly onwhich model you as to wether there are clips or screws) once this is free remove the plastic funnel, by this point you should see how the chute door removes.

a few notes the disp cover can be hard to remove but it will come loose also reinstalling just hit it firmly over each clip witht he palm of your hand.

good luck..

Kenmore elite 106.44423603 ice/water dispenser housing - plastic broken off for ice door pin hinge. Any ideas for a fix?


Hi and thanks for using fixya!

There is actually a "kit" that replaces the hinge, housing for the hinge, dispenser door and bracket. Just be sure when you're taking everything apart you pay special attention to how it goes back together. Kit comes with metal bracket that will replace old housing. Now that I think about it the kit comes with instructions! Kit pt# 8201756 and you can purchase it here. Appliance Parts

Flap on Ice chute came off I need to put it back on. Whirlpool Refrig. With water and Ice with a flap over the ice to keep hot air from getting in.


I'm in the middle of the same problem on my own refrigerator right now. The flapper swings on a steel pin which passes through a stationary plastic tab. That plastic tab can break off, allowing the door to fall out of position. Look up into the mechanism to see if this is your problem. Whirlpool makes a modification kit, part #8201756. It's not on the original parts list, so do a web search for Whirlpool 8201756. I hope this helps.

Ice Dispenser flap is dangling


You need a ice door kit. It's either part # 8201756 or 8201758. I'm not sure which part number it is but you can go to ddapplianceparts.com and go to the left hand side of the screen and type in the 1st part number and if it says it's a ice door kit, then that's the part you need. We replace a lot of these.

The flap on the ice despenser is not closing and water is forming in the pan below. Is there an scamatic of the door ice maker despenser?


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.

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

My ice maker is not working...


It sounds like the piece that holds the little ice door in place with a pin. If this is broken the only way to fix it is with a kit that Whirlpool has released. The part number for it is 8201756 and most appliance parts stores will have it. It contains a metal bracket that replaces the tabs as well as a new door assembly and instructions on how to install it. Hope this helps!

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.

Problem with ice dispenser in side by side refrigerator


Bensmom, the housing that holds the flapper pin probably cracked causing the flapper not to seal. Whirlpool use to have to replace the whole door at one time because the dispenser housing was a non serviceable part. That got too expensive so they came out with a kit to remedy the problem. The kit comes with instructions but you have to be patient and take your time. You want to determine first if this is the actual problem. You can do so by looking up into the dispenser and seeing if the pin retainer is cracked or broken off. I have done a bunch of these and the kit works great. I hate the job though. Part number for the kit is 8201756. I tried to attach a picture of the kit, but I guess the file was too big...Catriver..post back.
