After determining and obtaining replacement part, I used a No.2 Phillips screwdreiver and removed the door and hinge by removing the two flatheat screws that secure the door and hinge to the washer. After removing the screws, the door hinge is still attached to the washer because the hinge assembly has hooks that hold it in place. To physically remove the door, lift up on the door by holding the bottom of the door and the bottom of the hinge and lifting.Lay the door on its face on a solid surface covered by a towel or similar soft cover. Remove all of the screws holding the inside ring to the outside ring. Before removing the inside ring, pay attention top the orientation of the hinge. Lift off the inside ring then the hinge. Be sure to keep the four white plastic caps on the hinge and set the ring and hinge aside. pay attention to the orientation of the glass inside cover and outer plactic cover as it will be easier to reassemble. If you forget, there are notches to realign the glass and plastic. replace the broken outer door ring, lay in the outer plastic cover, the glass cover and the hinge (w/plastic caps). Then reinstall the indise door ring and snug in the screws. Reinstall the door on the washer by inserting the hooks on the hinge into the slots on the washer. Finally reinstall the two flathead screws to secure the door. Your're done.
