Remove Faceplate on fridge

How do I remove the faceplate on the outside door for the water/ice dispenser? I am trying to remove it so I can get the annoying plastic film off the fridge that came like that from the factory.

    I figured it out after going back to store and making them take it off the floor model. After removing the screws take a very small flat head screwdriver and pop out the bottom part. To do this put the screwdriver inbetween faceplate and the fridge right above where you removed the screws. There are 3 clips that hold it on, just locate 1 of them and use the small flathead to pop out the bottom and the top comes right off. When puting it back on start at the top and just pop the clips back onto the faceplate.

I am have the very same problem. I removed the dish beneath the water/ice dispenser, and located two small screws. These two screws appear to hold the bottom of the face plate to the door. I removed them. However, the faceplate still did not come loose. I suspect there are more screws or clips toward the top.

Remove protective film wrap from under water dispenser faceplate


I have this same model and was facing the same issue. I even emailed Whirlpool but that didn't help.

You can remove the faceplate by removing the spill tray and unscrewing the two small screws in the bottom. Be careful not to scratch the finish while removing the screws.

The faceplate is held on by several plastic hooks around all edges. Carefully grip the bottom of the faceplate (I put my thumbs on the inside where the spill tray was and my index finger below the bottom front of the faceplate). Get a good grip by pinching the faceplate and pull down and out to remove the bottom. Then push the faceplate up to unhinge the top.

You can let the faceplate hang by the wires while you remove the plastic. I'd also use a stainless steel cleaner while the faceplate is off to get rid of any fingerprints you may have left behind.

To reinstall, hang the faceplate on the top 3 hooks making sure there is a snug fit. Then pull down on the bottom and push it in. It took me two tries to get it back on.

The plastic is stronger than it looks but you'll still have to go slow and be careful with it. Good luck!

The water dispenser is displaced on my Whirlpool refrigerator ED5RHAX NO00. I am trying to remove the face plate but am afraid to crack it. Any suggestions?


I eventually managed to remove the faceplate, using a screwdriver in the bottom slots of the faceplate and prying it loose, sliding it up to remove it from the slots at the top of the faceplate.

LG Refrigerator - I need to remove the ice disp.


The dispenser cover snaps off. Look at the bottom corners of the dispenser faceplate and you may see small slots to put a small flat bladed screwdriver inside to help pry the faceplate off. This faceplate snaps on very tightly so it may seem like there are screws holding it in place, but it only snaps in.

Once you have the faceplate off the rest will be easy as you can see what you are doing and what you have to remove.

Note, if you are replacing the funnel you need to know that this part has been updated as of OCT 2005 (stronger clips to hold it in place) and it will not snap into the older funnel frame (the part it attaches to).

If the serial number for your model starts with 510KR or lower, then you will also need the updated funnel frame part number 3210JA0006S.

Hope this helps, please rate my solution.

Whirlpool refrigerator water dispenser not working


My older whirlpool side by side refrigerator has stopped dispensing water. The icemaker works fine, and I have adjusted the temperature a week ago so I don't believe the line is frozen. I do not hear any noise when the dispenser is pushed down, and feel that is where the problem is. The line is clear on the bottom of the fridge behind the kick plate, but water does not come out freely when I disconnect the couplings...
Any advice?
