Removed Flat Panel from front and used screwdrivers to remove screws and access spring and flapper, one note, once i did have access to this section i was able to see that the main reason the flapper was not closing was because the Dispenser Door Solenoid Assembly was frozen solid and needed to be replaced, I had not ordered this part and therefore had to order it at a later time, and repeat the repair, best to open this section up find all the damaged parts and then order...
