Hi my1bf4b,

Thank you for using Just Answer.

Here is how to open the door -

To gain access to the cable, removal of the dispenser bezel is necessary. Once removed, the cable is exposed. By carefully applying both a steady
pull of the access cord and opening force to the door, the wax motor is overridden and the sliding gear is pulled from right to left away from engagement with the rotating gear.
Thus, allowing the rotating gear to release the wire loop of the door.

NOTE: When the cord is released, the lock will return to a locked position (Figure 5-8).

Please let me know if you would like more information and/or clarification.
