Part # 8201756 was recommended to several people on your website and I wanted to know if this part will work for my Whirlpool ed5fvgxws00. I have already purchased part AP3595356 because ice was building up around the ice dispenser. I was unable to install the new chute because the pin will not securely snap into the housing. Evidently the black tab that holds the pin is broken. Please help! Thanks.
ANSWER Hello S.R.S,
This part will work on you model. Be aware that you need to practice putting this part in several times before removing the protective paper coating that covers the self adhesive areas. If these areas stick, the sticky stuff will come off making the part un-installable. Once you feel comfortable with inserting the part without touching anything, give it a try. The instructions also tell you to cut off the remaining parts of the broken hinge tabs. Leave them on and use them to line up the new part so the ice door will shut to the proper position.
