Hi, Most newer models have a screw behind the plastic cover on the handle. Take a good look at the handle and see if the cover can be removed. It should just snap on. If not, please get me you model # and I can assist you further.

Thanks
Vic

Whirlpool gold side by side door handle is loose.I can't find the way to tighten. IT appears the screws are underneath the rubber gasket, but I am a little wary of tearing it loose without anew gasket.


Most door handles now are front repairable. I can't tell without the model number which style you have, but most units have an insert in the door handle. You have to pry this insert out, to get to the screws for the handle. Some handles actually clip on to the door by sliding the handle up or down to clip it on or off. Good Luck, Appliance Specialists.

Whirlpool gold 24.5 CF with long handles. Can see handles need to be taken off and attachment screws under handle need to be tightened. How do you get handles off? Tried lifting up...


these unit have a trim piece that has to removed first before you can get to the screws that hold the handle to the door.
try to "slide" the upper and lower trim away from the handle, that will give you the access to the mounting screws. its not an easy job but you will get them to move with just the right amount of force.

Handle on fridge side is loose


Look at the top and bottom of the handle. There should be a plastic end cap you can gently pry off exposing the screws to remove and tighten the handle.

I have a whirlpool gold side by side with ice and water. The refrigerator handle has come loose at the top. The screws all appear to be in accessible as they are directly behind the door handle.


See if you can unscrew the handle at the bottom, and slide it off the top bracket. Then you should be able to tighten the top screws and re-install the handle.

Fridge handle keeps coming loose


When you tighten the screws do they feel tight or kind of lose? The holes or screws may be striped. If so, try larger screws or some sort of anchor in the holes.
