CustomerDarrell from Midlothian, VA

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).

CustomerPeter from Boulder, CO

Handle broke on he3

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.
