I had a problem with my ice dispenser not dispensing ice. The water worked fine but the ice side didn’t dispense ice. I watch the video on Parts and it was very helpful, but my model didn’t have screws to remove the front cover. At the bottom of the front cover was two indention where you could put a small tool and pry on it, I had to take a small pick tool and pry up on the front cover to pop it loose. You have to take something small like a pick tool because if you use something like a screwdriver or a butter knife you will get behind the plastic housing (also called a hood) that is screwed to the refrigerator. The key is to remove the face plate from the plastic hood piece (that is screwed to the refrigerator), so you have to get in between the face plate and the plastic housing. If you get behind the plastic housing you can break the housing, you must get between the two pieces and it will pop loose. This is the only problem I had with this installation. The rest of the repair was very easy and now my ice maker dispenses ice great.
