Product Description

If the door handle for your washer has become damaged, this is a genuine OEM replacement part. The handle is a light gray color called Platinum, although it may appear white in the photos. When installing this part, you will need to reuse the screws from the old door handle, as new ones are not included. If the screws are not in good condition, you can order new ones separately. This is a simple repair, as you just need to unscrew the old handle, and install the new one in its place.

The door handle broke after 11+ years of use.
Remove two screws, remove the broken handle, replace with the new handle using the two screws. The most time consuming task was finding the proper Torex tip for my screwdriver. The task would be simpler if the screws had Phillips or slotted heads. Torex drivers are not common in most households.

broken selector knob and door handle
Door handle would be easy as pie, but the screws are diamond bit, which makes the installation a little more challenging, I got a friend to install. You just have to have proper tools. The selector knob was pretty easy, a little challenging at first. When You get it in a position of 12:00, You have to push it in pretty hard, I was Afraid it would break, but hey, it didn't. Customer Service, Awesome, The Best on the Planet! Parts are much less!
