The ice dispenser would not work

I pulled the cover off the icemaker and water dispenser in the front door. Unplugged the wires, pulled out the old control bracket, put the new one in, reconnected the wires, put the cover back on. Everything works fine now. All it was was a broken piece of plastic that would not trigger the switch to run the ice dispenser.

Water dispenser on door stopped working.

Replaced the entire part which dispenses water and ice. Good as new. Cost to repair it ourselves less than $20 for postage and part. Sure beats the $85 service charge with an additional charge for the part needed, the repairman wanted to come out and fix it.

Ice & water dispenser stopped working

The control bracket that holds the switches to dispense the water and ice broke. I live in Florida I can't live without the ice dispenser and filtered water. I was informed by Whirlpool that they did not sell the idividual parts and that I would need to buy a new door for $700. Fustrated I searched the internet and PartSelect had exactly what I needed and $22 later I had my water and ice back. Simple to install less than 10 minutes, excelent schematics. The part was delivered within 1 day, I wish I knew about PartSelect earlier I would have never gone thru the aggravation of 5 days without ice and water.

Broken micro switch holder

Simply, removed covered took off parts, and replace on new part, rehooked replaced cover. It is a bit tedious removing the cover on the ice dispinser but it is slotted at top, sill pop off easily but be careful can break if you force it.

Water dispenser not working

I searched the internet and found "partselect.com" put in my model number and they said the part that usually fails is the bracket that holds the micro switch, I proceeded to take the cover off (hardest part) it needed alot of downward pressure and snaps off. Sure enough the micro switch was loose, I ordered the part for $ 18 with shipping included, it arrived in 2 days and took about 10 minutes or less to transfer all the stuff from the old bracket to the new bracket. THANKS ! !

Ice working; no water

follow the above directions. The front panel is very tight. You have to pull it use a fair amount of force to get it off. Same with pulling the wires apart. Part number 8 had fallen off. It is shorter than the diagram shows.
