One solution is to drill through the entire handle, then put a thin bolt (dark-colored) all the way through the handle, then secure it with a nut on the inside.  This will take the straing off the door and should last a very long time.
It's not excuse for this very poorly-designed handle that apparently breaks quite a bit (many people report multiple breaks over many years with multiple HE models, see here), but this will secure it and should prevent future breaks and expensive hande replacements.

Were is the reset button onwhirlpool model ler4634bq1

There is no "reset" button. If the light stays on it is almost certain your door switch is broken. The door switch turns the light on/off when the door is opened/closed, and likewise allows the dryer to turn on/off when the door is closed/opened. These switches do break and are relatively easy to change. First, ALWAYS DISCONNECT APPLIANCE FROM POWER; second, remove lint filter screen and unscrew the two phillips screws located on the dryer top next to the lint screen handle; third, using a putty knife release the top retention clips located at the front near each side in the gap between the top and front panels; fourth, swing the top up and back out of the way and remove the two 1/4" hex head screws located inside the cabinet on either side near the top that hold the front panel in place; fifth, disconnect the door switch wiring from the plug connection and lift the front panel up and away from the cabinet. Now you can replace the door switch and reassemble in reverse order.

Broken dryer door handel

put back in place and the least costly is to put a screw in to the handle that will also screw into the metal or go to local parts store with your model# so they can order you one in and make sure you use a short enough screw that it will not go throught the door

He3 door handle repair

Carefully remove the door from the front of the dryer and lie on a flat surface face down. Lay a towel under the door to prevent scratching the door window. Remove the screws from the back of the dryer door and the hinge. The back panel should lift off exposing the screws holding the handle in place. has some excellent exploded view diagrams that you can work from as well.

If you have questions, please let me know. I hope this helps you.
