Appliance Technician: Tyler Z., Appliance Doc replied 2 months ago

The frost building up around the chute between the icemaker and door and on the icemaker means that air is getting in through the chute. That causes moisture and warm air to create frost and stop the icemaker from working. The flap on your dispenser for the ice chute needs to be replaced to resolve this issue I'm sorry to say. Below is a link to the flap for your model. The front dispenser face and such will need to be taken off to access and replace the flap.
