The hinge is held on with screws. You just need to separate the front and rear sides of the door skin to get at the screws that hold the hinge onto the door frame. The screws are Phillips-head and are located on the inner-facing door. Once you have access unscrewing the hinge from the door is simple, and then you can unscrew it from the dryer's frame. Or, you could unscrew it from the frame first and then disassemble the door on a workbench, etc. Once the new hinge was installed the slop in the mechanism went away and there were no more false "door open" events. You can test for this by pushing on the door on the hinge side while it's closed- I was able to get the drum light to come on, indicating that there was sufficient play in the hinge to falsely trip the door-open switch. After replacing the hinge the issue went away.
