Question about Whirlpool ED2FHEXN Side by Side Refrigerator
Whirlpool GS6SHAXMB00 side by side pin retainer is broken off of ice maker dispenser housing. It holds the door flapper for the ice dispensor. The repair guy says that I have to replace the WHOLE FREEZER DOOR, because of this tiny little plastic pin retainer. On Oct 21, 2006, "catriver" posted a fix saying that "I have seen a number of these Whirlpools where the pin and spring retainer has broken off from the dispensor housing causing this problem...They have now come out with a kit to address this problem. This is not a fun job for a first timer." After spending an hour on the phone with Whirlpool, I'm unable to identify this kit... can anyone please tell me what the kit number is? Whirlpool doesn't have a clue. THANKS !
Honestly, I just read all this went and looked at mine and figured out I had the same problem. I bent a finishing nail and put it through the holes and pried it up against the housing. It held and I have working water. Might not be professional but it seems to be working

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.
