Default How to find and replace dispenser housing Whirlpool
Model Number: 10658966703   Brand: Kenmore   Age: 5 - 10 years   

Appliance Parts from AppliancePartPros.com


I have the two side by side door kenmore model 10658966703. Based on my research, I think it is identical to whirlpool model ED5JHEXTS00

I have to replace the ice dispenser housing. It is the item #1 in the drawing below:

Dispenser Front parts for Whirlpool ED5JHEXTS00 - AppliancePartsPros.com

I tried sears parts also. I need item 1 (listed as Engine - its not an Engine - its a housing)

http://www.*************************...od=10658966703

I called Sears and they said they had no part number for it and it is not sold.

The reason I have to replace the housing is, the #5 pin below, which holds the closing flap spring, needs to go into an anchor hole in the housing that that is broken (bad design!). My closing flapper does not work and I need to replace the whole housing for this.

#4

Dispenser Door Spring



#5
Dispenser Door Pin Kit


I am not sure if the housing can even be replaced. Can it be?
There is no part number for it.

Solution?
Thanks

You can not buy this part.
You can buy a grossly expensive repair kit from the company that Whirlpool sends you to, for parts, but it will cost you 135.00.
I was shocked at the price and that's when I thought it was for the whole plastic piece.
Good luck but I think I'm going to experiment with a washer and some epoxy.

Dispenser repair kit 8201756? Its available for about $71 including shipping from appliancepartspros.com. I ordered it. It works perfectly well!
Here are my suggestions:
1. You don't have to replace the trap door assembly. Just use the old assembly but you can easily clip in the new door itself, retaining the old pin and springs etc. This is faster.

2. Pry open the outer frame, by sliding a large flat head screw driver in the two tabs at the bottom of the frame.

3. Remove the wires and screws in order. I didn't need any instructions. If you look carefully, you can work with the screws and wires/clips.

Here are the specific instructions for installing the mod kit:

4. break off the broken tab (which had a hole in it in the past) on the right. Not necessarily to make it flat.. just get rid of as much of it as possible.
5. Do a "trial run" of how the metal assembly will seat. Do it 3 or 4 times.. just so that you know how to get it into place easily. While doing this, use the extra shaft pin that is in the kit to align the left tab's hole (the unbroken hole would be on your left as you face the frig) with the left hole in the metal bracket. This is important. This way, you will get perfect alignment for the trap door. Others have had problem with seating. If you do this my way, and actually align the tab hole and the metal bracket's left hole, you will find that the door will sit perfectly.

Now figure out how to do this alignment, a few times, before you peel the sticker from the glue.
Clean the area to be glued with Alcohol and let it dry. This will ensure ears of good adhesion.

Notice that in the instructions, it says don't peel the BACK sticker. So, DON'T. Just the top white stickers and that one stickers that is on the top and also on the back (around the corner). If you don't peel the back sticker, it would be easier to align the pin as in 5. Now, with the stickers peeled, use the pin to align the hole of the left tab and the left hole in the bracket and now press it up, to make the glue stick.

Now you can assemble the rest..

This worked well for me. Thanks to this forum, I was able to find this kit. I had called Whirlpool and Kenmore (mine is a Kenmore) but they didn't have a clue about this fix! IDIOTS! Google and forums like this are always much more useful than the manufacturers!
