First off, I'm really glad I found this web site. I watched the video on how to change a broken handle and felt confident I could do it before I ordered the part. The handle came completely assembled and was honestly quite easy to replace. My door has six sided screw heads so had to find a screwdriver that would work then took about 2 min to unscrew the inside of the door. I then used a little tupperware qt containor to prop the door open while I used a pair of pliers to unplug the electric plugs...they were the hardest thing I had to do to fix my handle. Those things are really hard to get off but after I unhooked them the handle assembly just popped right in, I conneted the plugs back, screwed the back of the door back and wa-la it worked just perfectly! Only took 10 or 15 min...but the video was a great help. I would recommend using their products anytime and will come back to this site if/when I need appliance repair help again. THANK YOU!!
