Ice maker would run but not dispense ice
Removed the ice bin and turned it over. Removed the old coupling and replaced with the new one, reusing the screw that holds it in place. Then removed the cover plate over the drive shaft that comes out of the door. Pulled out the old shaft and removed the plastic ring that keeps stuff from falling into the motor area. Put the ring onto the new shaft and slowly put the new shaft down into the door until it seated in the motor assembly. Replaced the cover plate with the nut driver and voila! The Ice Age has returned. An easy fix once I determined that the drive shaft end was worn where it engages the coupling, causing it to slip and not move the ice dispenser arm.

In door ice dispenser would not dispense ice.
Long shaft from motor to dispenser was stripped. I removed 2 screws from the shaft holder in door, lifted old shaft out, put new shaft in and replaced the 2 screws. Took 2 mins! Works great!

Ice maker wouldn't work
Simply took out old part, paying attention to how it comes out. Simply put the seal in, followed by the shaft and then place holder on and screw down with the two screws that were with the old part. Abrakadabra! Ice maker working like new!

Ice would not dispense and the water filter cap was missing
Remove two screws on shaft cap. Remove cap. Remove shaft and white o ring. Put o ring on new shaft and install. Replace cap and two screws. The cap for the water filter was harder. Without a cap, it took me a few minutes to wiggle the filter out enough that I could put the new cap on. Both parts worked perfectly. Both are horribly designed and will likely need to be replaced again.

Ice Maker Bucket would not rotate arm to dispense ice
This was a very easy repair. First, remove the Ice Bucket off the refrig door. Unfasten the white plastic shaft holder held in place by 2 hex head screws using a nut driver. Remove old shaft and insert the new shaft. Fasten back up with the holder and 2 hex head screws and install the ice bucket and you are ready to dispense ice again.
