This handle is almond in color.
This part works with the following brands: GE, Hotpoint & Kenmore.
Removed a light plastic trim rectangle from around the window to expose the lower of two screws that hold the handle in place, removed the screws, threw away the broken handle, attached the new handle with the screws, popped the trim back in place, closed the door and smiled!The only hitch is that I had no instructions on how to get the door apart to reach the lower trim. So, hat in hand, I went to the local appliance repair place, told them I had purchased a new handle but couldn't figure how to get the door apart to remove the broken handle and install the new one. They graciously explained the process and it worked. Good guys.Oh, I forgot! I ordered the wrong color handle the first time. I contacted Parts Select customer service, got return instructions on the part, ordered one in the right color, got it in the mail and got credit for the returned one. This was all done quickly, politely, in a very businesslike manner.You have a great operation and I won't forget you!Sincerely, Cal Markwood

Removed door seal by inserting a butter knife into a corner and carefully prying it away from the door. For handle I unscrewed top and bottom screw and replaced handle. For frame, I removed handle and panel, removed window, removed frame and snapped new frame into place. Re-installed all pieces.
Replaced the handle with two screws. I'm sure more people would do their own repairs if the prices for the parts were lower. $65 for a plastic handle....come on, get reasonable.
I removed the top screw. Pulled away the plastic grommet which covered the second screw and removed that screw.I replaced the new handle, put in the screws and replaced the grommet.
Relatively easy took less than 15 minutes
Old handle was already removed. Used a bottle opener to pry the molding on the bottom loose to access the screw and then simply screwed the new handle in place and popped the molding back in place.
