How to take off cover plate on ice dispenser front door

I need to replace the plastic ice guide that is an outside part of the ice dispenser on the front door on my Whirlpool refrigerator ED5NTQXKT00.

I need to know how to remove the front cover (without breaking it) to access the ice guide.

Does it pop off or slide up,down, sideways?

The front panel on my ice dispenser is cracked and needs to be replaced too but it's an LG not a whirlpool . The repairmen won't touch it. Any advice on how to change out this part? The dispenser works fine. It's only just over a year old. Thanks!

Run a flat blade screwdriver along the bottom edge to find each of 2 recessed areas to slip the blade into where you can twist and pry. They're each about 1.5 inches from the left and right edges. Once you have it free then pull out and up at the bottom to clear the face panel from the upper lip. There is no need to pull out anywhere but the bottom once it snaps free after using a screwdriver as a pry tool. The wiring connector has a tab that you need to get a fingernail under. The tab might be on the side hidden from view until you twist the harness to see it if necessary. Pull apart the electrical harness connector once the tab is free. The face panel can then be set aside.

John, I have a similar problem with my Whirlpool Gold Conquest (GD5RVAXVY00) side-by-side and I am trying to replace the Ice Dispenser door flap. I have inserted a screw driver below the panel's bevel and popped the bottom two clasps as suggested, but the display panel does not slide up or off.

Am I missing a step? I don't want to force it an possibly break something requiring a new panel. So my question is once you pop the bottom two clasps, what is still holding the panel in place ?

Did you get an answer? I have the same problem.

Solution: I have a whirlpool side by side GC3SHAXV02 but there are many other brands and models like mine that the ice chute replacement kit doesn't show how to completely remove the display panel. I decided after 6 months of searching to just push on and see if I could remove it at the risk of doing damage! Removing the lower clips with the normal process is valid but there are 3 more clips that I found. They are tucked up under the lower edge of the display face. There are 3 clips and if you get a flashlight and look just up under the overhanging face plate with a mirror or forward facing camera face you will see them. You just pop them down and out. Mine were black, clipped into a white piece. You need to pop these off after the 2 normal bottom clips are already popped loose. The other thing I found about the Chute replacement kit is that for my refrig the ground wire didn't reach the same screw as the control panel ground. I needed to do 2 things. I pulled it off the metal chute piece and reattached it to the right edge to help it reach better and the other thing was change the screw hole on the frig to the upper hole as there were 2 identical holes to screw the ground wire to the frig. I also had to make sure the wire didn't interfere with the water dispenser mechanism. One last thing - My frig had 3 tabs instead of 2. 1 tab was to simply keep the pin in place instead of needing the little retainer clip that the kit doesn't come with and they tell you to hold on to. Well you can either get a clip and break off all 3 tabs but I simply left the 3rd tab as is and it works great.

Removing the dispenser housing worked on my Jennair jfc2290vemb refrigerator worked with a 12 or 14 inch bladed screwdriver starting from the bottom of the dispensor and also used another bladed screw to gently pry up the dispenser side as it separated from the main panel.
