Re: Replacing Door Hinge

Before replacing the hinge, try to spray on it WD-40 or an equivalent and wait for awhile, it might solve your problem. In case it will not solved your problem and you need to replace the hinge, by removing machine's upper cover (open 2 screws on the back cover and then slide it out)you will have an access to it. Good luck !

Please check if the front panel was replaced into the correct slot. It is possible that the alignment was shifted and so the door hinges are out of place.Check this link for tips:

Water leaking out of door , seems like it might be a problem with the door hinge ?

Not likely that you have a hinge problem, but it can happen, especially if water has been dribbling down the back side of the front panel from the dispenser area, getting on the hinge, and causing it to bind up. Replacing the hinge is a pain because the screws are put in with thread lock, requiring heating or even drilling in some cases. If you have water dripping down the front of the machine from the door, the most common reason is that there is some lint or hair on the bottom side of the glass door, preventing a complete seal to the gray rubber gasket. Generally, just cleaning off the bottom of the glass door will fix it. If that does not do it, you can try moving the spring clamp (which holds the front of the gray tub seal) from the bottom (6 O'clock position) to the hinge area (9 O'clock position) Sometimes, the leak is caused because someone pushed the washer into place by placing their hands just below the door and actually deformed the metal front panel inward, preventing a seal between the door glass and the gray tub seal. If that is the case, it may be corrected by removing the spring retaining clamp, taking the front of the gray tub seal off, pulling outward a bit on the metal panel at the bottom of the door openings, and replacing the seal and retaining band again.

The door is most probably out of alignment with the front shroud. Slightly loosen the door hinge screws and close the door firmly making sure it is fully and evenly seated into the shroud. Retighten the lower hinge screw but not fully tight. Retighten the upper hinge screw but not fully tight. Fully retighten the lower hinge screw then the upper hinge screw.

Pull the seal of the front. and double it back inside the washer.
Undo the 2 screws that secure the door hinge to the front of the cabinet, keeping hold of the hinge support plate behind the cabinet front.
