We found a youtube video....and followed the directions. We unscrewed the inside panel of the door...all the way around. Then, we took off the outside panel which revealed the screws on the backside of the dispenser. After unscrewing that, we were able to push out the old dispenser, and push in the new one...... screw that in and then replace the door screws. We were done in under an hour.
