My daughter, who has the dryer in Florida, made the repair herself. She removed the broken handle that had been temporarily taped in place. Cleaned off tape residue with Goo-Gone. Then took the new handle and snapped it into place. Worked just like it was supposed to.
inserted on an angle and snapped in place.The best part of this story was I ordered the part on a Saturday and got it on Monday evening.The repair took less than 20 seconds. I am extremely impressed with the fast fast fast shipping time.
First opened cold Bud then pulled screwdriver out of toolbox. Removed all of six screws (quality workmanship of appliance) and put on 6 pieces of plastic (do they make metal any more??????).
After removing pieces that were stuck in the door, I simply popped the new handle in place. It took less than a minute. What was the easiest was ordering and receiving the new parts- I ordered and 2 days later I received the new parts. I didn't expect to get the new parts for at least a week.
First I removed the top shelf and its contents to allow for more room. Then I removed the plastic temperature control housing by tugging housing forward and releasing it from the two clips located at the upper rear corners of the fridge. Then pull down. Then I removed the three screws holding the entire temperature control assembly and dropped it down to access and remove defrost assy. Installed new defrost assy. and re-assemble in reverse. Change light bulbs before replacing final housing. Also, a good time to clean housing interior before re-installing.
Snapped on new handel. Took all of 5 seconds. The hardest part was finding the part, which your website took care of....Thanks!
No tools needed as old handle had come out on it's own when it broke. Simply removed duct tape that was used holding old one in place till new one arrived. Placed new one in position and snapped into place to hold. Less then a minute to install. Very pleased and surprised in how fast delivery of part from PartSelect was. Basically had it in 2 days. Will use them for other replacement parts as the need arises.
I ordered the new part as listed and it came in two days, which was amazing to me since it was the week before Christmas. I snapped it in in less than a minute and all is well. Thank you for being so prompt on sending this out. Made the holidays a lot easier.
Just popped the new door handle on.
just snap in replacement
Very satisfied. I simply took the plastic door handle out of the package and snapped it into the door. It popped right in and fit perfectly!
I got tired of every one complaning and using one of the knobs from the stove to start the dryer, I found this site and the parts and there you go.
