Based on some of the questions and answers relative to a flapper problem, it is not closing fully, looks like I will need part AP3672582. How do I get at the assembly once I have the replacement part?
Thanks - Dick
Answer Hello Dick. You will need to remove the front display of the dispenser. It unsnapps out of the dispenser. Once removed, you can access the screws holding the dispenser housing in place. Remove the dispenser housing to change out the ice door assembly. Hope this helps.

Ice maker door does not open to let ice down to glass.
Answer Hello Mike. You need to check and see if the solenoid is bad and will need to be replaced on the unit.
My water dispenser will not shut off?
Answer Hello Gary,
You need to open the dispense area and make sure the linkages are not sticky and causing the micro-switch WR23X10783 to stick. If not, the water valve WR57X10032 may have failed.
We have a small amount of ice build up in the chute and can see lite down the chute when the door is open. The rubber flapper looks like it is not closing. Can that be the problem?
Answer Hello James,
You are correct. If you can see light through the ice door, room temperature air, which contains a certain amount of moisture, will get into the unit to replace the cold air that drops out of the unit. This moisture condenses to the cold liner and forms frost. Replacing the ice door WR17X11653 and the ice door solenoid WR62X10055 should correct the issue.
We have an issue with what seems to be the flapper not closing properly. We have a lot of ice buildup up the chute. I looked down thru the chute and can see light around the edges of the flapper. Do we need to replace the rubber part of the flapper or the whole thing and if so is it something we ourselves can do?
The ice door assembly is what would need to be replaced part number WR17X11653. To access the dispenser assembly, there is a cover on the front that you remove and then there are 4 screws holding the assembly in place. Remove the screws and pull out the dispenser assembly. Once off you can remove the ice door and install the new one.
What causes the water dispenser tube to freeze up?
Answer Hello Jerry. This can be 2 issues, the freezer to cold, or you need to install the heater kit WR49X10173 into the dispenser.
