In addition to the solenoid (115V), this kit also comes with a door strike and an ice door assembly. Please be advised the spring and roll pin are not included with this kit.
This part works with the following brands: Whirlpool, Admiral, Estate, Inglis, Kenmore, KitchenAid, Roper, Maytag, Crosley, Jenn-Air, Hardwick, Magic Chef, Amana, Caloric & Glenwood.
This part fixes the following symptoms:
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.

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.
Followed the directions provided with the solenoid and door kit to replace solenoid, door and actuator. Replacing bracket was intuitive, just required transferring of parts from one to the other (miro-switch, cabling, light socket, and circuit board), and then installing the actuator pad on it.
Couldn't believe how easy this was. The pictures you provided were perfect everything went exactly as the instructions said. I had to of saved at least $150.00. I would grade my mechanical skills at about a C+ at best and this was an easy fix. If I need appliance parts, I now know where to go.
I removed the outer cover from the door, removed the broken parts, and cleaned the area of debris. After cutting off the power, I replaced the solenoid and door, then prepalce the outer cover. The parts were delivered promptly, and the job when very well.
followed the direction that came with the part. really easy. Thanks
It was not that hard. I am not totally inept, but also not a mechanice or techie. I have discovered that a lot of repair jobs have a video that shows you how to do things, and seeing it done makes a task doable for me.
I went to your site thinking the problem was lack of electronic/elec signal. Wrong! I then was guided to your "ice door repair kit". I only then realized(after viewing the repair video) that ice door SOLENOID failure was far more likely than elec circuitry failure.Since it was inexpensive I ordered the kit......gambling that it would fix it; and it did! On my first try I installed the close-door spring wrong but then reviewed the video and instantly saw my error and corrected it. I also got an elec nibble (shock) once because I hadn't disconnected as the video said to do. Good parts,good information, timely response! "Piece of Cake"! Cheers John Taylor
I watched video for repair, when the part arrived it was a snap to repair.
I watched the repair video before I even ordered the part. That helped me determine if I felt I could make the repair. The video was extraordinarily helpful. Can't say enough about it. I even took off the dispenser door to see if I thought I could do it. The part arrived quickly, in just a couple of days. I only needed the door flap but it came with the solenoid which is not uncommon on ordering parts. (I couldn't even find the part on other web sites much less a video on how to repair.) I reviewed the video again. I removed the drip tray and door facing as instructed. When removing the mechanism I did get incur a slight electrical shock. I had not unplugged the refrig. Duh.. Got the mechanism out and inserted the door flap. The solenoid strike bar had come out and I had a slight problem getting that back in but referenced the video and no problem. Put in all back in place. Had to clean out the ice bin some because water had frozen in the bottom. Put it back in, plugged in the refrig and I am back in business! Terrific! The video was the key for me. It gave me confidence with very clear instructions. Bill
Parts came 2 days after I ordered. Followed the included instructions, removed 4 screws, snapped the new flapper into place, put the screws back and voila - REPAIR COMPLETE!! One of the simplest appliance repairs I could imagine. Thanks Partselect!
This is an easy repair and doesn't take hardly any time, once you can identify the electrical bridals to disconnect and the position of the new ice chute door interface point with the solenoid.The supplied directions are complete but were quite a bit blurry. The more general dissasembly which is effectively 5 screws and two electrical bridals to remove/disconnect is straight forward. Pay particular attention to the mounting point of the ice door interface with the solenoid. I did it twice because I didn't align the door properly the first time:-) Much too easy a job than to "call the guy."
i removed the front cover of the dispensor, easily put the parts in and put back together , the first tome the flpapper came off as i did not secure properly but it only took a few minutes to resecure and now working fine .
VERY EASY AND WAS INSTALLED IN NO TIME> Many Thanks J
The repair did not work. The new door strike did not embrace the solenoid.I had the old spring, and it fit exactly. I also ordered a roll pin, but have no clue as what to do with it. Excellent directions came with the door strike, but nothing with the roll pin. Was hoping the roll pin would connect the door strike to the solenoid, but did not see how that would work.
