Flap on Ice chute came off I need to put it back on. Whirlpool Refrig. With water and Ice with a flap over the ice to keep hot air from getting in.


I'm in the middle of the same problem on my own refrigerator right now. The flapper swings on a steel pin which passes through a stationary plastic tab. That plastic tab can break off, allowing the door to fall out of position. Look up into the mechanism to see if this is your problem. Whirlpool makes a modification kit, part #8201756. It's not on the original parts list, so do a web search for Whirlpool 8201756. I hope this helps.

I have a whirpool side by side refridgerator and the door flap to the ice dispenser isn't closing.


Look up into the door area from the outside with a flashlight there is a good chance that a plastic tab that holds a metal hinge pin is broken. If so you need a kit to repair this problem.

Ice dispenser has black ugly gunk from which the ice drops. It is the rubber flapper that opens and shut that is dirty. Question. can the rubber flap be removed to wash?


It;'s possible, but not recommended. The pin that holds the door into place is metal, but the hinges are plastic and have been known to break pretty easily. They do make a replacement kit in case you break the hinges, but that job is usually best left to a professional.

Spring on the ice dispenser arm is off the shaft pin.


on this type of model the hinges that the door chute is on is week check what part is broken it might be just something holding it open but if its hanging there need to check if the hinge on the dispensor housing itself is broken. if it is they sell a ice door kit for this model due to the weak plastic it sits on

Ice in bucket freezes into a lump, mechanism freezes


it sounds like the ice chute door is stuck open. on this model it can slip off the "hinge pin" or the plastic that holds the pin can break. if the flap is broken it is replacable. the pin can be put back in. if the plastic that holds the pin is broken, you need to replace the whole door. expect to wait 6-8 weeks for a new door, sooner if lucky. cost is $400 +++ more for stainless.I hope the pin fell out. hope this helps

Ice Chute door dislodged


IF THE ICE DOOR HAS COME OFF, THE CHANCES ARE THAT THE PLASTIC TAB THAT HOLDS THE HINGE PIN IN PLACE HAS BROKEN. IT IS PART OF THE PLASTIC HOUSING. WHIRLPOOL/KITCHENAID HAS A FIX KIT THAT REPLACES THE PLASTIC TABS WITH A METAL BRACE THAT IS PRESSURE TAPED IN PLACE. I HAVE INSTALLED A COUPLE OF THESE KITS AND IT TAKES PATIENCE AND TIME. THE KIT WILL HAVE INSTRUCTIONS ON HOW TO INSTALL. FIRST VERIFY THAT THE TAB HAS BROKEN. IT IS LOCATED IN THE UPPER LEFT SIDE OF THE OPENING TO THE ICE CHUTE.

Whirlpool pin retainer is broken on ice dispenser


this is easy. there is a small area beside where the piece broke off. bend a small peice of metal coat hanger at a 90 degree angle, (this is so you can make your new hole on the correct line) heat the end with a lighter, burn a smallhole thru this area beside where the previous hole existed. now throw away the old pin that you were using and use a piece of coat hanger cut to the right length. on one end bend about one half inch to 90 degree angle, feed thru new hole and thru your spring and flap and thru to opposite side hole and lastly make small bend to keep wire from sliding out. ta da, fixed. problem solved for about two cents. i have successfully repaired many of these doors.

Pin retainer broken off from ice dispenser housing


Ill be gald to help you here....The people who answer the phones must be worthless, anyway the part number is 8201756 (ice door kit) it will probably have to be specially ordered, i have installed several and there not exactly easy but it can be done with some patience. Pass this along to your repair guy as he is not giving people correct advice.
