After checking out the mechanism, I realized that the wax motor which operates the dispenser was no longer working. I conatacted Part select and on the second day, on a Saturday, Fedex delivered the little wax motor. I simply separated the front panel with the inside panel with 7 screws and a 1/4 inch nut driver. I slipped out the old wax motor, unclipped the two wires and slipped in the new motor. Attached the wires and put the panels back togehter. Voila, the dispenser works perfectly.
Total time, 15 minutes.
