ok do to any work on the unit you will have to have it removed from the cabinet ,then you will need to remove the outer wrapper /shell and I suspect if as usual you will need to replace the door open lever they break often .The link below is to the part you will need from a highly recommended company rated A+ with the Better Business Bureau. They offer a 100% money back guarantee, EVEN ON INSTALLED ELECTRICAL PARTS, for an entire year! They are the only company to allow returns on installed parts for a refund and offer a FULL ONE YEAR WARRANTY! http://www.repairclinic.com/PartDetail/Open-Lever/8184269/909522?rcaid=1000070 And here is a part break down so you can see where it is located right behind the long button you press to open the door.http://c.searspartsdirect.com/lis_png/PLDM/O2028093-00002.png If you have any questions just reply back.
