Question about LG Refrigerators
I need to replace my ice/water dispenser funnel. To do that I have to install a new funnel frame. How do I get the cover off the ice dispenser funnel/frame in the front door so I can replace the parts?

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.

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

Yes. But LG came out with a new frame for the funnel. So you have to order the funnel and the frame which is installed through your front control panel. Good Luck I just did it.

I had the same problem with our Whirlpool Gold. Which by the way was just out of warranty. The guy who repaired the problem told us that since there were so many replacement dispenser motors at different supply locations that there must be a problem. I think that the root cause is the arm in the ice holder is hard to move, and it burns the dispenser ( #2252130) motor out. Whirlpool should get to the bottom of this and offer free or reduced repairs. Motor # 2252130
