According to all the information on the internet diagnosing the problem with my in door ice dispenser, the problem seemed to be with the solenoid which I ordered from PartSelect. However, when I got into the repair, I found the problem was with the electrical switch that activated the ice dispenser. A couple of the plastic studs that hold the switch in place had broken which did not allow the switch to be activated. I replaced the small plastic keeper study with small screws and now the ice dispenser works fine.
