Before starting my repairs I checked for part suppliers online. Partselect was one of the first I saw. They also had instruction videos. After watching the video, I took apart the ice maker and found the solenoid had rusted. I replaced the solenoid and while everything was apart I replaced the crank, spring and the flapper. The entire process only took about 20 minutes and that was only because of their informative videos.
Pulled the front panel off and let it hang by the wires, removed 4 screws replaced the new funnel ice display and spring works great.
I followed the video that was posted in the section. It was very helpful. I wasn't sure on how to remove the panel and the video explained it completely.
The repair was fairly simple. I unscrewed all of the screws holding the inside door panel from the outside door panel. I then removed the old (broken) door actuator with the new one, and then screwed everything back together. I used the exploded drawing of the dishwasher from the PartSelect website which helped considerably, and also don't forget to put the spring on the actuator before you install the new one. If your door actuator broke, then you should by the spring that attaches to it, because you have about a 1% chance of finding the new one.
I removed the face plate (ice/water, selection panel) from the freezer door to access and remove the solenoid which was badly rusted and replaced with a new one, and a new spring too. Very simple repair for a chronic pain.
After finally getting the door open and opening it up, the problem became apparent. Partselect helped me locate the part. it came quickly, and the repair was simple. It took me two trys to discover how the spring fit, but once I looked closely at the diagram, it was a cinch. I was a very proud dishwasher owner!
order the flopper, spring and racker can`t replace them; becouse factory recall back on 2003 most replace two ft. door of refrigerator. for $400.00
Two years ago the same problem cost us $160.00 to replace the same two parts. The latch failed in the exact same location and I'm disappointed that GE hasn't redesigned the latch to eliminate the sharp 90 degree angle at the point of failure. I purchased two sets of parts for $35.00 and replaced them with some small effort and little risk. I still have a set of parts for the next time it fails. It sure beats calling an authorized GE repairman and paying $160.00 or possibly more .
