Is this the part you're talking about ?
Customer: replied 6 years ago.
Yes it is
Expert:  Bryan replied 6 years ago.
okay sorry I had to go out, unfortunately there are no serviceable parts in this, you would need to replace the dispenser, as you can see from this back view, to replace this you will need to remove the screws around the inside of the door and lift the inner door panel up, you can order this @ hope this helps, thanks Bryan

how is the dispenser secured into the door? does it snap inor do you screw it in?
Expert:  Bryan replied 6 years ago.
There is a plastic clip's that snap it in, you can kinda see them on the clear plastic part in the picture of the backside of it along the bottom of the clear plastic part, it's not that difficult to do what you get the door split, thanks and best wishes, Bryan
