First, I took everything apart and replaced only the ice door. Everything worked fine for about an hour and the door started opening and closing on its own. I took it apart again and replaced the whole kit including the solenoid. Everything was fine for less than an hour and then the door started opening and closing again. I took it apart and made sure everything was tightened carefully. Now it works perfectly.

The repair was really simple - I followed the directions provided. I removed the screws holding the cover in place - unplugged the wiring harness - removed the solenoid and replaced with the new solenoid and door amd reassembled the parts. I wasn't sure if the solenoid was bad since the door was actually broken. I was able to test just using the new door - then replace the solenoid. It was all done in less than 30 minutes. Directions provided were GREAT.

On the door ice maker stopped working

Removed the front panel and all associated parts from the water and ice on the door.

My husband had taken everything apart and was ready to order a whole new panel. After reading some of the stories on the website of people having the same problem (no ice would come out, water would come out & not stop or splatter everywhere) we decided to start with the part everyone seemed to have ordered. After ordering the part, it arrived faster than I expected, and solved the problem. It helped reading the other stories so we knew what kind of tools were needed and other helpful hints. I have already recommented partselect.com to my sister in law to help with a dishwasher repair.

Easy to follow directions. Got to the part where the old solenoid would be removed and found that one of the two wires the connected to the old solennoid had become disconnected. Reconnected and everything works. Will keep the kit now as backup and instructions in case I need to repair again. Very satisified.

The Ice maker only made crushed ice, because the door was not sealing.

First I removed the 5 torx head screws that held on the outside panel. Then I unplugged the 2 electrical connectors to the circuit boards, one goes to the touch pad the other is the power. Then I removed the assembly. I only needed the part that holds on the round door but I replaced all the parts that came in the kit.
With the directions that they sent me with the parts, and since I was the one that took it apart. I was able to fix it in about 20minutes and it worked great.

Unplug fridge. Pull out drip tray at the bottom of the dispenser, remove 2 screws under it. Remove 2 screws holding dispenser to fridge. Disconnect wiring harness. Replace switch and Actuator pad. Re assemble in reverse order and plug the fridge back in. Have a cold glass of water, with ice, and no overflow on the floor. Saved quite a bit of $ to boot!
