Whirlpool advised that they did not have instructions to replace the door primarily because of liability issues. Without instructions I had to try and find an appliance service business to replace the door frame. Several were contacted and some indicated they would do it for $89.99 plus labor. Finally found one who would do the job for a total of $60. I would very likely have replaced the microwave since a new one would cost about $250; however, Whirlpool has changed specs and the new ones wouldn't fit the same space and work would be required to fit it to the space costing more. When I buy a new one it probably will be one that has a manual for assembly and a parts list.
