If the dispenser door has stopped working then its more then likely the dispenser itself. As theres a coil on the back of the dispenser which when engerzised opens the door. Its usuallt that coil that fail so it doesn't open the door.

What you need to do is remove the outer door panel and from there you will see the back of the dispenser. Just check the wires are fitted on there ok still.

If you have a multi meter then you can test the coil for resistance. Its usually about 3.6K ohms. If faulty then the dispenser unit will need to be replaced.

But if that's all ok then the control board will be the fault. But to be honest nearly always for this fault its the dispenser unit itself that causes this fault here.

If you need anymore info just get back to me.
