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).
Popped the old melted wheels off and simply clicked the new ones into place. It took less than 2 minutes.
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.
Only need to remove 6 small phillips head screws. 4 around top half (inside on door) plus 2 under door window (you have to bend down to see. Pull outer plastic ring off, remove 2 screws holding handle on, replace handle and reverse process.
Take out 8-10 screws on the inside of the door. Make sure you note which screws go back in the correct spots. The screws are more than one size. Plastic casing pops off then you remove 2 screws for the handle. Put handle on. Put plastic casing back on and screw back the 8-10 screws. Very easy.
I removed all of the screws on the inside of the door. Unfortunately, I found out that I only needed to remove four of the screws after the glass fell out of the door. After re-installing the glass and removing the correct four screrws, I figured out that I had to pry off the plastic face plate to get to the two screws that held on the handle. After removing these screws, I was able to get the broken handle out and the new handle in. I then reinstalled the plastic face plate and replaced the four screws that held it in place.
I Googled a description of the repair, found a forum entry from another 'do-it-yourselfer'. They had posted instructions on which 8 screws needed to be removed. I followed the instructions and within 15 minutes, I was done.
I'm one of those just start kind of guys, so I did. It was too simple. There are about 8 screws on the inside of the door (I'm not currently there so verify). I unscrewed them and found that there were screws (a more pointed tip) and bolts (a flat tip). I took all of the screws out, took off the black outter "ring" the handle is on that. Simply remove the handle and screw it all back together. 10 - 15 min. tops.
Simple....took the door panel apart, replaced the broken handle, put the door back together. Like I said, simple.
Well, my husband removed the screw from the inside of the door, removed the broken part of the old handle, then replaced and attached the new handle. That part was actually easy, but he had a tough time reaching the screws!
just a matter of removing 6 screws from the inside of the door, this allowing the front plastic part to which goes around the door to seperate from the metal door itsself. Then you have to remove the two screws that holds the handle on. very simple repair.
Removed the screws, pulled off the front cover, removed the screws that held the old handle and screwed the new handle into place, replaced the screws that held the outer cover and that was it.Done Job!!! : )
We removed the 6 screws - two were below the clear opening and we did not find them right away. We pulled off the black cover, removed the old handle, put the new handle in place, put the black cover back on and then re-screwed it in place. Very Easy. The part fit exactly as the original.
Piece of cake! After reviewing the other comments, simply removed the small philips screws, popped off the outer ring, changed the handle and re-assembled. Took less than 10 minutes and my dryer is like new! Don't need a man for this easy job.
