Re: Door clips fell out
IF THE CLIPS ARE BLACK AND ABOUT 1 1/2 INCHES BY 2 1/2 INCHES THEY GO ONTO THE HINGES AND THE DOOR GOES OVER THE TOP OF THEM, YOU MAY NEED TO LIGHTLY FLEX THE SIDES OF THE PANEL TO GO OVER THE HINGES. THE TOP OF THE PANEL SHOULD SLIDE UP INTO THE CONSOLE BEFORE THE BOTTOM WILL GO IN. HOPE THIS HELPS YOU OUT

If there isn't, you might try having a local metal shop cut you a piece of stainless, fold and weld the edges to make a cover for the door and adhere it either with epoxy or a small tack-weld. I wound up having to have a cover made for my Mom's stainless-steel fridge when only white and black ones were available and a metal shop doesn't charge much for it.
Alternately, if the metal panel is housed in a frame, try taking apart the frame, removing the panel and flipping it over. They usually just paint the one side, and if the other side is bare metal, such as aluminum, you can use sandpaper to give it a brushed finish and some clear-coat spray paint to give it that shiny stainless look and durability. Then just reassemble the door with the stainless-looking side facing outwards and the wrong-color side facing in. Worked for Mom's dishwasher!
Are you trying to replace the microwave door or the GE dishwasher. Either way, www.applianceart.com (under the stainless steel section) has this roll of stainless material that you apply to your appliances. I saw it on the "Today Show." Its basically faux stainless. We put it on our refrigerator and it looks and even feels like real stainless steel. Its really cool. I think its called stainless foil or something like that. Also if you're looking for a stainless panel for your dishwasher they sell actual stianless panels there too.
Those clips will fit into slots on each side of the door frame just above the hinges, Put them back into the frame, then install your new stainless panel. If they fall out b/4 you can get the panel back on, try taping them to the door frame with some masking tape to hold them in place while you secure the stainless panel.
they are a vivration attenuator and yes are spacer too, but are a little dificult to mount if the machine are working well ok leaved like that but check every coples of month for a loose screew.....good luck and rate me
