Whirlpool GD5SHAXKQ00 Ice/Water dispenser

I ordered parts to rebuild the door mounted ice dispenser. How do you remove the dispenser front surround from the door. Does it snap straight out, slide up or down or sideways and then release for pull out? I am afraid of breaking the cover which contains the on/off for light and buttons for crushed or cubed ice, and it doesn't appear to be available easily.

    Yes, I also wish to remove the plastic front ot the ice/water dispense area so I can clean up in there. After a few years it gets mildewy and just plain gross. It dosen't seem to pop out easily and appears to be held in by something strong.

Hey,

It's pretty easy to remove by yourself. DO NOT force it or it will probably break. Nice and easy will do it. You'll need a flat headed screw-driver and a towel.

-There are 4 retaining tabs. 2 on top and 2 on the bottom.

-Remove the drip tray in the dispenser area

-Start with the bottom. Before starting, look underneath the surround (yes--bend down, stoop or lie on the floor -- your preference) You will see 2 thin slots. That's exactly where the tabs are. Do one tab at a time.

-Place the folded towel under the surround at the same time you are placing the screwdriver tip gently at the slot---DON'T apply pressure to the screw-driver yet.
(The towel will protect the paint and by being folded will provide a slight leverage for the screwdriver) Hold the towel against the door with the same hand you're holding the screw-driver with. If you can't....then cry for help.

-With your free hand press down firmly on the lower part of the surround (where you removed drip tray from) ...at the same time GENTLY pry with the screw-driver.
It shout pop out pretty easily.

-Repeat for the other bottom tab.

-For the top tabs, lift the entire surround up and then out.

-Remove the wiring harness and VOILA!!!

-Show off to your wife.

The front surround is affixed to the front of the door by way of four tabs, two at the top and two at the bottom. It took four hands to get it off. Basically, working at the bottom of the surround, you need to push downward on the bottom edge of the surround to cause the tabs to drop far enough below their slots so that the other two hands you have helping you can pry the tabs out of their respective slots at the bottom. Once they snap loose, you can lift the surround upwards and off of the door. In the end, I had to reach a point where if it broke, it broke, but it did snap free in the end without breaking, but it was pretty close.
regards,
Richard

How do I remove the ice water dispenser cover on my whirlpool conquest


Remove the drip tray. Using all your fingers from both hands press down on the bottom of the cover, and at the same time pull away from the door. The top of the trim has tabs that set behind the dispenser housing. To replace the trim, set the upper tabs behind the housing and press in moving down both sides till you get to the bottom.

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 .
