I have been all over my Frigidaire ice and water module and I havn't been able to locate the release tabs to remove the front plate. I have Model PLHS267ZDB7 built in Feb 2005. Can anyone be more specific than slide the screwdriver in the slot under neat?

So I understand that your water dispenser continues to release water for several minutes after pouring a glass of water and that it also randomly dispenses water. It sounds like something could be going on with either the dispenser module or the water actuator. Give the refrigerator a hard reset. You can do this by either unplugging it or by switching the breaker off that it is connected to. Leave it off for 3-5 minutes. Connect the power back, and if you are still having the same troubles of the dispenser releasing water, I would suggest that you contact a local authorized technician to see what exactly is causing the water to continuously dispense.
Clean the dispenser drawer if water is introduced into the fabric softener cavity but does not dispense. Pull the dispenser drawer out until it stops and push down the release tab marked "PUSH" and then pull the dispenser out completely.
Lift the dispenser drawer cover and clean the tubes both in the dispenser drawer and the cover.
Turn the drawer over then release the conveyor from the tabs and lift it off. Clean the conveyor and the drawer thoroughly.
Snap the conveyor into the tabs back into position and then reinstall the dispenser cover making sure the tubes are properly seated.
Slide the dispenser drawer back into the drawer opening while pushing down the part marked "PUSH".
Let us know if the fabric softener dispenser still does not dispense while both the detergent and bleach dispensers dispense.
If you have a whirlpool icemaker inside of your freezer (I've read on other posts that whirlpool ice makers are installed in various makes and models), there is a white cover over the ice maker (it's square). Remove the square cover with your hands or stick a flat head screwdriver in the side until you can pull it off.
Once the white square cover is removed, you should see a white wheel with gear teeth. In the middle of the white wheel is a plastic snap that should be holding it in. I noticed that one of the little plastic snaps was broken...which caused my "no ice" problem. A simple test is to push the white wheel toward the icemaker. If the wheel starts turning, you have found the problem.
Because the little plastic snap tab was broken off, I was able to pull the white wheel out completely.
You see, behind the white wheel are metal contacts that need pressure for the ice maker to work. Without the center plastic snaps holding it it, the pressure is gone...and so is the metal to metal contact.
I previously called Whirlpool, searched all of the web...to no avail. Every other solution was "check for ice blocking the water tube" or "replace your water filter". That's all balony. If your regular water dispenser is working, you don't have an ice problem. And if your water dispenser is working, you don't have to change your filter either.
If you realize that the little white wheel is the culprit, just google "whirlpool module" and you will see it for sale. I found one on ebay for under thirty buckaroos with free shipping.
Hi this is tech crazy the solution to the problem is
You should be able to replace this part yourself. Follow these steps to replace the water actuator:
Unplug the refrigerator to completely disconnect electrical power. Turn off the water supply to the refrigerator.
Remove the drip tray (Key 23 in the image below) from the bottom of the dispenser.
the screws (Key 43) from the bottom of the dispenser module cover (Key
4). NOTE: You model may not have screws at the bottom of the dispenser
cover. If not, push down on the top of the dispenser cover and pry out
on the bottom of the cover with a flat tip screw driver to remove it.
Pull to dispenser module cover up to release the top clips and remove this cover and set it aside.
Remove the screws (Key 17) that are on each side of the dispenser module (Key 8).
pull the dispenser module out slightly from the door. It will have
wires attached. Pay attention to how the water tube and the ice door
assembly are positioned. Pull this module out far enough to remove and
replace your water actuator (Key 24).
We have a similar fridge were told that it has a resivoir inside that needs to fill with water before it will start to dispense water. Had to stand holding in the actuator for quite a while befrore it started putting out any water. Shoud be the same with the ice maker, but there is an arm inside the freezer that controls how much ice you get it could be turned off.
I had the same problem with my water dispenser and since they were willing to sell me a part but provided no directions and I couldn't locate any I decided to make my own for those who might need them. Here is a link to a PDF I made, hope it helps.
Melissa, you don't get it from the inside. Remove the drip tray by pulling it out. You should see two screws holding the dispenser cover on each side of the bottom. Remove these screws and push up on the dispenser cover, there's 3 hooks on the top. Unplug the harness from the dispenser board and get the cover out of the way. Now is the hard part. You have to get at the module itself that holds the paddle. These can be a fight. If you go to Sears.com, go to appliance then parts and post your model number you should get a breakdown of the dispenser that will guide you. Catriver..post back
