Question about Whirlpool Microwave Ovens
The panel on our microwave has broken on the inner edge at the seal. Whirlpool and 2 online appliance part sites say that the exterior plastic panel cover is not available as a separate part, but that I have to replace the entire door assembly--Cost would be about $250. I've seen a part--#8185234--that looks like the exact size and appearance of the panel on our door for about $95, but these sites say it won't work. Any help is appreciated.

SOURCE: Inner 'glass' of door
The inner glass can and should be replaced. It protects the metal mesh screen from getting dirty, which can cause it to be damaged and allow microwave leakage.

You shoul take off the hole door, use something like a flat screw driver and wedge the plate off.
some of the mics got tamper holes where it hooks in.
Hope it works...

you have to separate the door panels (as shown in the attached photo)
and then you'll see the previously hidden screws you need to remove.
Or you can watch a YouTube video (not a video I made) that demonstrates how it's done.
