Maytag Model MSD2754GR* In-door ice dispenser assembly
The little flap had a tooth on one side broken and was loose. I purchased the replacement part and now the flap/little door does not open when contact is made...I believe it has something to do with the spring loading assembly...what is it supposed to look like?

The FL code indicates that the door failed to lock when you closed it. Try opening and closing the washer door again. Make sure that there is nothing in the door area that could block the latch or keep the door ajar. If the error recurs, the latch may be faulty.
If the door is actually locked and giving the FL code, the latch has a problem. You can try power-cycling the washer (unplug for a while) or setting the washer to pump the water out. If these steps don't help, you need to order a replacement latch assembly. Depending on your washer model, you may have a manual pull cord to unlock the door. Look under the bleach and fabric softener compartments after opening the dispenser..
I hope this helps. If your washer is under warranty, contact Maytag. Otherwise post a comment with the model number of your machine for a source for a replacement latch assembly.

Hi, thanks for using FixYa.com. I suspect the dispenser may be plugged up a bit or the hose from the dispenser is plugged. Remove the dispenser insert and clean out the tray with hot water. After that, open door and remove the 4 phillips screws, 2 on each side of the door opening. Once removed, pry the front panel away the machine and set aside. Find the rubber hose coming from the dispenser assembly to the tub ring and remove it. Clean the hose and the inlet on tub ring of softener build up, reassemble and enjoy a properly working, non leaking washer!
There is an emergency access cord provided for the manual unlocking of the washer door and can be accessed by removing the dispenser bezel. Open the dispenser cover and remove the four screws securing the dispenser bezel to the top cover then lift the bezel off. Once the bezel is removed, look for the nylon cord near the door lock assembly through the opening left by the dispenser bezel. Pull the cord away from the door lock assembly to pivot the mechanical opener and push the locking lever into the open position. Open and close the door several times then start a new cycle.
Check the door lock assembly if the problem persists and replace it when necessary. Disconnect power to the washer prior to servicing to avoid the risk of electric shock.
Access to the door lock assembly requires the removal of the front panel, dispenser bezel, and lifting of the top cover.
Open the dispenser cover and remove the four screws securing the
dispenser bezel to the top cover then lift the bezel off.
Open the washer door and remove the two screws securing the door hinge
and the front panel to the front shroud assembly. Do the same to the two
screws on the opposite side of the door opening.
Disengage the front panel posts from the clips located on the face of
the cabinet by grasping the upper part of the front panel posts and
pressing in on the outer edges then twisting it inward. Once the front
panel posts are released from the cabinet, tilt the front panel away
from the cabinet and remove it.
Remove the two 5/16" hex-head screws securing the two top cover hold down brackets; one on each side. Swing the brackets to the outside to unhook it from the lip of the top cover then lift the top cover to expose the door lock assembly. Prop up the top cover to prevent it from falling back into position while accessing the door lock assembly.
Disconnect the wiring harnesses from the door lock assembly and the two mounting screws then rock the top of the assembly forward and lift it off the front shroud assembly.
Clean the wiring terminals and the connectors then reseat the connectors several times. Replace the door lock assembly when the problem is not resolved.
Install the new door lock assembly in reverse of the steps given above. Review the steps thoroughly for easy reassembly of the washer. Make sure the wiring harnesses are properly and firmly seated to the door lock assembly terminals. The door lock assembly is part number 22004435.
The fabric softener solenoid valve is faulty and must be replaced. It is sold as an assembly with the bleach solenoid valve with part number 997846. You need to remove the front panel to lift the top panel to inspect or replace the valves.
Front panel removal procedure:
Unplug the machine.
Turn off the water supply.
Open the door and remove it by removing the screws on the hinges holding it.
Remove the remaining two screws on the opposite side along the inside lip of the door opening.
Press in on the outer upper edges of the front panel posts then twist it inward to release it from the clips on the face of the cabinet.
Tilt the top of the front panel away from the washer and remove it.
Remove the four screws holding the dispenser bezel to the top of the top panel.
Remove the 5/16" hex head screws securing the two hold down brackets on the top panel.
Swing the hold down brackets to the outside to unhook it from the slot in the top panel lip.
Lift the front of the top panel and tilt it toward the rear of the machine.
The dispenser valve assembly is the one on right of the water inlet valve assembly where the water supply line is attached to. The fabric softener dispenser valve is the one on the right most.
Clean the terminals and the connector of the fabric softener dispenser valve.
Grab a multimeter and check the resistance between its terminals. The resistance should be between 500 to 1000 ohms. If it reads open, replace the dispenser valve assembly.
Remove the wire harness connections to the valve solenoids.
Loosen and remove the hose clamps on the hoses.
Loosen the valve mounting screws by turning it at least three full turns.
Slide the valve assembly to the left and remove it from the bracket.
Place a towel below the valve and remove the hoses.
Install the new dispenser valve assembly in reverse order.
Install the top panel, dispenser bezel, front panel and the door in reverse order of the removal procedure.
The plastic cord is for opening the door if the door latch fails. It should connect to the door latch mechanism and the other end should be routed to the soap dispenser corner. There should be two holes for the cord to go into and out again. The idea is to remove the soap dispenser lid / bezel to get access to the pull cord if needed.
