Handle broke on HE3

  • Customer: Peter from Boulder CO
  • Difficulty: Easy
  • Time to Complete: Less than 15 mins
  • Tools Required: Screw drivers
  • 24 of 25 people found this instruction helpful
After reading a note on partselect.com about replacing the handle, I removed the 6 small Phillips screws from the inside of the door. This allowed the black plastic on the front of the door to be removed. After that changing the handle was easy - just remove the two screws holding it into the black plastic, and attach the new handle. Put the black plastic back on the dryer door, screw the 6 Phillips screws back in, and I was done.

Broken Door Handle

I followed the instructions someone with the same problem had listed on the Internet. Their instructions were to the letter. It saved me calling the dealer for a repairman to install without the associated repair cost. The instructions are as follows:
"When you open the dryer door, you will see 12 screws around the plastic window and 2 more screws at the bottom of the door beneath this window (just look down and you’ll see the screws). Of all these screws, you only have to remove 6. They are Phillips head screws and they are smaller than all the other screws. The 8 other screws are for the door hinge holes and to mount the plastic window. The 4 screws for the plastic window are NOT Phillips head screws.
Remove the 6 smaller screws, 4 around the window and two below. You then can slip off the door cover from the outside, and voila you will see the door handle mounting screws." It's very simple and done within 15 minutes. By following theses instructions you won't mistakenly remove screws holding the dryer window, which could fall, and brake.
Hope this helps others and thanks to PartSelect for having the replacement part. I'll check with them first for any other appliance replacement part(s).

Found a service manual on-line for the Whirlpool Duet Dryer. Did the troubleshooting for the problem stated. Found the heater element to be bad (open circuit across heater block).

  • Customer: Derek from Springhill LA

  • Tools Required: Screw drivers, Socket set

I first went to your site and studied the parts diagram to see where the element was located. I then unplugged the dryer and pulled from the wall. After that I popped open the front cover and accessed the bottom of the dryer where the element was located. I then removed two screws that held the element in place and removed the wires to the element. After a little tug the old element came out. I slid the new one in place and connected the wiring and screws and replaced the cover and pluged it in. Works good as new...

This product comes in a bottle with a brush like Liquid Paper. It goes on incredibly easy. A second coat might be needed. I wanted to prevent rust from setting in so I covered the scratches and dings. The paint is a little brighter since my washer is 10 years old but it still looks great.

The old catch on my dryer door was gone and I was keeping the door closed using tape. I ordered the part and it arrived with no hassles in about 5 days. The repair was too easy. I just popped the new catch in place. It took all of about 30 seconds to complete using no tools. I wish all home repairs were this easy.

The dryer stopped working and would not start.

After unplugging the dryer, I removed the bottom panel in front. Remove the the filter inside the dryer and remove the filter housing below. There you can see the thermal fuse on the air duct, its white with two blue wires. You can check it with a ohmmeter after removing the wires. If its open its bad. Its held in place with two sheet metal screws. After replacing the thermal fuse the dryer worked fine. However I would suggest cleaning the air duct and the outside discharge opening. Hope this helps.

Removed to top panel - two screws in the back
Removed the screws from the metal panel holding the electronic board, remove the wire clips and rotated the metal panel up and out of the way.
Disconnected the three wire connector to the door switch cable - There must be a special tool for this as a basically destroyed the connector on the door switch cable.
Use a pliers to pull out the door switch from the front. This was not easy and I wound up having to destroy the door switch to get it out.
Inserted the new door switch cable first from the fron of the dryer and connected the new door switch cable connector to the dryer wiring harness.
Rotated the main electronic panel back in place, re-inserted the cable harness and re-inserted the bracket screws.
Re-installed the top panel and screws.
