Hello, and thank you for using this service. I'll be helping you with your problem today.

So if the dispenser lid won't open, then the dispenser itself would need to be replaced if you don't see the lid being blocked. The dispenser is actually not all that hard to replace so below is a video that shows you how to replace the dispenser as well as a link to the part.
