Broken handle

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.

The plastic handle on the door broke off

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.

Plastic door handle broke off the dryer door.

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.

CustomerMark from Ponchatoula, LA

Broken dryer handle

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.

Dryer handle broke off

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!
