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.

I just purchased WR17X11653, WR02x10585, & WR17x10706 for my refrigerator. The Dispenser Recess Trim is very difficult to remove. I am afraid if I apply too much pressure with the putty knife, the trim will break. Please advise on the best way to remove this part so that I can replace the parts that I bought. Thanks!
Answer Hello Thelma,
You do not have to remove the trim to replace the ice door. Turn power off to the unit and grasp the bottom of the interface assembly and pull out on the bottom of it, (this is the part with the dispenser controls on it). This will snap out. You will then be able to remove the screws holding the dispenser housing shield in place. When this is removed, the ice door is easily accessed. I would have the ice door solenoid WR62X10055 ready to put in also since condensation causes this design to commonly rust and seize.
Hello, My ice door flapper seems to stay open even If I push it down. It wont close completely. Any suggestions?
Answer Tony, If you're sure there are no obstructions in the chute or housing you'll need to remove the façade WR55X10443 and the dispenser shield WR49X10227 and check the solenoid WR62X10055, spring and door crank for broken or bent/damaged parts.
How do I access the the ice door for replacement. I'm having trouble removing the control panel.
Answer Hello Mark. To remove the dispenser display: 1. Remove the Phillips-head screw from the housing. 2. Insert a small flat-blade screwdriver into the small opening located at the bottom front corner of the display. 3. Pry the bottom right side of the dispenser display away from the dispenser recess. 4. Grasp display, pull it towards the right and remove it from the recess. 5. Disconnect the wire harness. Caution: To prevent breaking tabs when installing the display, first insert the left side tabs into the recess then snap the display in place.
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.
