Remove the dispenser cover by gently prying starting at the bottom going round and round a little at a time to prevent from breaking it. When it's off the screws will be exposed to access the other components.

Our automatic ice dispenser hums but doesn't move ice through to be dispensed


Resolving the frost in shoot problem .
Remove the top freezer door hinge cover , and disconnect the plug there . This removes any power , going to the door . If no plug there , remove the bottom kick plate , by removing the screw on each side in the front , and disconnect the receptical from the wires comming from the bottom of the freezer door .
Remove the dispensor control board , by prying , or pulling , from the bottom of the board . Disconnect the 3 plugs to the board . You should now see the white dispensor cover , being held on by 4 screws . Remove these screws , and slide the cover out .
In the top right , inside the dispensor area , you will see a solenoid with a plunger , with the door flap arc , inserted into the plunger . Usually rust inhibits the movement of the plunger , keeping the door flap from closing completely .
Remove the 3 screws holding the plunger and solenoid ( part number WR62X10055 ) and replace . Cleaning will not help , due to rust will return .

The ice dispenser door stays open. Selenoid works


This is due to a rusted solenoid plunger .You will need to remove the top freezer door hinge cover ( 1 screw ) , and disconnect the plug there . This will remove power to the dispensor . Using a screwdriver , insert it just behind the dispensor board , and twist , to pry the board off . Remove the 3 plugs there , and remove the board . Remove the 4 screws on the white cover , and slide the cover out and off . In the top right , in the dispensor area , you will see the solenoid and plunger . 3 screws hold the solenoid on . Lift the flap , and the plunger will lift off . Part number for solenoid and plunger is WR62X10055 . The closing spring is probably good , and if you are pushing the flap closed , you are moving the plunger itself , instead of it gliding inside the solenoid , to the closed position .

The chute for the ice despenser is freezing up and nothing will come out of the chute because it is frozen solid


You should remove the freezer upper door hinge cover , and disconnect the plug there . This removes power to the door .
Remove the dispensor board , by prying out from the bottom . After removing the board , disconnect the 3 plug-ins on the board itself .
Remove the 4 screws on the white dispensor cover , and slide out the cover .
At the top right , you will see a solenoid with a plunger which the door flap rocker , slips into . Usually , this plunger will rust , keeping the door flap from closing completely , therefore causing frost in the shoot where the ice comes out . 3 screws hold this solenoid and plunger in place . Part number for solenoid and plunger is WR62X10055 .
You cannot remove and clean , due to the rust already starting . It will happen again , unless you replace these parts .
To disconnect the flap , raise the flap and the plunger will slide off .
Re assemble in the reverse order .

Frost inside the ice dispenser chute and the ice cube dispenser seems "stuck" on crush mode instead of dispensing full cubes.


The stuck on crush mode , is caused by ice frosted in front of the ice bin , blocking the ice bin flap from opening , when calling for cube ice . Removing the ice bin and cleaning or defrosting completely , will solve this problem , AFTER , resolving the frost in shoot problem .

Ice dispenser door flap will not close completely. I'm sure something has sprung or broke inside the door. How do I get the face off to look at the mechanism that opens and closes the door?


Remove the top freezer hinge hover on top of the freezer door . Unplug the receptical there ( this will remove power to the door only ) .
Using a small screwdriver at the "crease" on the bottom of the dispensor control board inside the dispensor , twist slightly to disengage the 2 clips ( 1 on each side ) holding the dispensor board . Unplug the 3 connectors from the board . 4 screws ( 1 on each corner ) hold the dispensor housing shield . Remove these 4 small screws . After removing , at the top right , you will see a solenoid and plunger . These are probably rusted , holding the flap open . The part number for the solenoid and plunger is WR62X10055 . 3 screws hold this part on . When reinstalling the dispensor housing , It slides back on 2 "grooves" so make sure it is back in place , or the board will not snap back on properly at the bottom .

It sounds like the dispensor flap is not closing . Can you look down the ice shoot , and see daylight ? If so , dispensor and plunger need to be replaced . Pt # WR62x10055 . Or , if crushed ice is used quite often , this too will cause the shoot to jam . Unfortunantly , only cure for this , is to use less crushed ice . Since you've taken parts off the door before , I wont go into , how to get to and replace the solenoid and plunger .
