First pull out the ice bucket and close the door.  Set for cubed ice.  Press the button for ice to come out and listen for a loud clunk noise.  That is the sound of the solenoid.  You can open the door, hold the light switch and press the button and watch for the solenoid moving up and down.  Solenoid is at the back of the freezer in a little square opening where the rod on the ice bucket goes into.  If that solenoid is moving ok then put the bucket back in while the solenoid is in the down position and cubes should work.  If solenoid is not working then it will need to be replaced.  Let me know what you find.

Open the freezer door and look down the ice chute while you shine a flashlite up the dispenser cute from the outside. If you see light around the chute door, it needs to be replaced. The problem you describe is almost always air laekage around that flap. Post back if you need more help.

The front cover is snapped on. There should be two slots in the bottom of the cover. Put a wide screw driver in the slots one at a time and pry out. It snaps off very hard.

Hey,

It's pretty easy to remove by yourself. DO NOT force it or it will probably break. Nice and easy will do it. You'll need a flat headed screw-driver and a towel.

-There are 4 retaining tabs. 2 on top and 2 on the bottom.

-Remove the drip tray in the dispenser area

-Start with the bottom. Before starting, look underneath the surround (yes--bend down, stoop or lie on the floor -- your preference) You will see 2 thin slots. That's exactly where the tabs are. Do one tab at a time.

-Place the folded towel under the surround at the same time you are placing the screwdriver tip gently at the slot---DON'T apply pressure to the screw-driver yet.
(The towel will protect the paint and by being folded will provide a slight leverage for the screwdriver) Hold the towel against the door with the same hand you're holding the screw-driver with. If you can't....then cry for help.

-With your free hand press down firmly on the lower part of the surround (where you removed drip tray from) ...at the same time GENTLY pry with the screw-driver.
It shout pop out pretty easily.

-Repeat for the other bottom tab.

-For the top tabs, lift the entire surround up and then out.

-Remove the wiring harness and VOILA!!!

-Show off to your wife.

SOURCE: how to repair the ice dispenser door on a whirlpool refrigerator

If you will look on the bottom of the dispenser cover you will see 2 notches on the left and right side. carefully pry the cover off using a flat tip screw driver. then you will see a white switch plate that is either held on with latches or 2 srews depending on model. once this is removed you will gain access to the dispenser door. 
once you gain access I think you will find the hinges for the dispenser door are broken off. if so you will need a dispenser door repair kit form whirlpool part # 8201756 this kit includes new door and hinge repair kit. this is something you can do yourself if you are pateint and pay lose attention to detail. otherwise I would recomend a god servie company. thanks for using FixYa Peyton

Kitchenaid KSRS25 Ice dispenser blades get stuck


Greetings,
In looking up this partial model # KSRS25, it shows you have
the model with the large ice bin inside the freezer.
My question to you is: Does the auger motor run when you
push the ice lever?
2 trouble prone parts on this model. Both in the case of NO
auger motor activation.
#1 broken pin that hold the micro-switch on to the switch bracket.
Item # 15

1690545?addlogo=false

Next #2 and the Worst, A Broken Blue wire or wires in the wire loom
under the freezer door hinge. Un-repairable new door needed if still
available.. You have to get creative restoring the power.
So before I continue, Does the Auger motor Run?
And if it does, remove the bin and close the door switch that turns the
light off, and tape switch shut. With door open and ice cradle pushed
in watch the auger drive fork turn? Is the the key hole stripped in the
fork.(rounded out) May need the fork or motor. #9 & #2

Icemaker flap door doesn't shut completely resulting in in frost layers forming on and around ice bucket and water leaking into the drip tray and ice forming on freezer door near the freezer door.


Hi,
I found 9 different model to your model number, but all the unit use the same dispenser components.
Below there is a picture of the dispenser, item number 4,5,6,7 and 8 all deal with the working parts.
4 - return spring 5 - pin 6 - dispenser door 7 - Door Mechanism Assy (this one has a heater, not really needed) 8 - Door Delay kidlmo_2.gif but in looking up history, I found a complete door kit that should solve the issue. They came out with a part 8201649 and this part contains all those item and a bracket that can fix the broken tabs that the pin sits in. That was more common.
Back a couple of years ago they stop telling customer that the repair was not possible when the bracket to the pin support (mount) would break.
I hope this helps..

Ice dispenser door not closing fully and ice is forming in the opening. How do I remove the panel to replace the dispenser door mechanism?


The hood,Canopy has to be snapped apart at the bottom, then slid upwards to disengage the retainer tongues at the top, of which there are three. Then I was able to see that the connecting rod on the damper which causes the ice dispenser door to close slowly, was bent and about to break and interfering with the dispenser door flap not to close fully.

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.

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.

No water or ice through door


sounds like the dispenser assembly is not sensing that the trap door is opening fully, so it wont send power to the auger motor or fill valve. If you are pretty handy, you can disassemble the door and take out the dispenser assembly and try to take the assembly apart and correct the throw on the trap door. Otherwise, I'm afraid you need a new dispenser to the tune of about $250 parts and $225 trip and labor. Good luck!
