Re: Door is out of "plumb"
You will need to remove the door first....Pull the door open slightly it will hold in that position about 3"-4"open. then grab both sides of the door and pull stright up the door will lift off (Note: Some models require you to remove a screw first to see if you have this type open the door completely and look by the hinge) After the door is off you will see an Adjustment screw on top if the hinge you will need to screw it in or out depending on which side you want to raise or lower. after the adj replace the door to check alignment

Hello. Notice in pic 2 of the exploded diagram of the door, part 359 which is the bottom door trim, part# WB07K0379. I believe this holds the glass in the door if I'm thinking of the right model oven. The glass door steel cover (designation 314) is WB57K10049. I'm not sure if your glass panel was glued to the steel cover--that's why I gave the part number for it--just in case it can't be repaired. If you need more info or part numbers, leave a comment and I'll be glad to help you further!
You can remove the oven door and dis-assemble it to clean it but you are looking at quite a task to do so.. Most of the kitchen aid brand requires two pins to be inserted into the door hinges while the door is in the open position to allow the door to be open. When you have inserted the pins into the hinge start to close the door and the pressure of the hinge spring will be applied to the pins allowing you to now lift on the door removing it from it's slots in the face of the oven. The hinge will slide out of the oven face.
Once you have the door removed you can begin the task of taking the door apart. Lay the door inside part down on a table or counter, remove the screws from the bottom of the door trim (piece that holds lower part of glass) and remove the trim. Now you should be able to slide the outer glass downwards (some models required side trims to be removed also). Now you can remove the handle assembly and then begin to remove the inner door liner and inner glass package. Be careful and pay attention to screw size/location. Take pictures at each step to aid in re-assembly! Good luck!!
This job is best done by two people, one to hold the glass in place, and the other to operate the screwdriver and position the handle and trim pieces.
The glass is held in place by the handle assembly at the top and a metal track at the bottom. You remove the glass by removing the handle. Open the door part way until you have access to the back of the door. The door handle is held in place by two screws on the back (the oven side). Remove the screws, taking care to hold the handle in place. Be sure to brace the glass, then slowly move the handle away from the door frame. Remove the glass. The side trim pieces will probably fall away from the door frame, although they will probably not fall all the way out. My advice is to carefully remove them. Be careful; they have tabs on the bottom edge that hold them in the door frame and these tabs are easily broken. If yours are still in one piece you might just reuse them.
Remove the old glass panel and clear the bottom track of any debris. Put the new glass panel in, beginning with the bottom track. Set the oven handle on the top edge of the glass panel; there are tracks on the back of the handle assembly the top edge of the glass fits into. Bring the handle toward the door frame, taking care not to let the glass panel slip out of the tracks. The door handle has two collars that go through holes in the door frame. Once you've got the collars through these holes, you can put the two screws back in that secure the handle to the door.
Take one of the side trim pieces. Each trim piece has a narrow edge and a wide edge (like a capital "L"), The narrow edge faces the front and the wide edge faces the side of the door. Each piece has a corner edge with a little tab sticking out. These face down. The opposite end of the trim piece has recessed edges. These slide under the edge of the door handle. You want to insert this end first, then work your way along the length of the trim piece pushing the narrow edge between the door frame and the glass panel.
Here's the tricky part. To get the bottom in, the best thing to do is to open (or better yet remove altogether) the drawer beneath the oven to gain access to the screws that hold the bottom track of the glass panel to the door. Loosen the screw that holds the track in on the same side as the trim piece you're working on; the screws are on the bottom of the track about 1 inch in from the edge. Loosen the screw slightly and pull down on that edge of the trim as you push the trim piece in behind the glass. Repeat until the trim piece tab slips through the hole for it on the track. Tighten the screw back in place.
Repeat this process for the other trim piece. If you're patient and gentle, it shouldn't be too difficult. I just did this myself today (2/7/09).
While waiting for someone else to answer my question, I fiddled around with the door parts. I managed to reassemble them! Here's how:
1. start with the glass panel. Slide the glass panel into the slot at the bottom of the front door frame on the stove.
2. next attach the handle. There are slots on the bottom of the handle that fit into the top of the glass panel. Slide the handle slots into the top of the glass panel.
3. screw the handle onto the oven door using the predrilled holes on the inside face of the oven door.
4. last, attach each of the two side trim strips. Slide the top of each strip into the bottom of the handle on each side of the oven door. Then slightly bend the strip outwards so that they are short enough to fit into the bottom slot of the oven door frame on each side of the glass panel.
the glass on this door, is held up only by the lower trim, and sits behind the handle escution(very small contact point) as far as the trim for sides, the slip under top esctution,and behind the door glass(sorta keep the glass from contacting the metal frame of door.} much easier to do with door off of unit, refer to manual as how to remove the door if needed
Slid the bottom storage compartment completely out. On the bottom of oven door are four (4) screws that hold trim piece that support outer glass panel. Remove screws and carefully remove complete glass and trim assembly. There are two (2) corner trim panels that are also secured by two (2) of the screws being removed. At this point you can clean all glass (both the outer panel that was removed and the inner insulated glass) and all other built up goop. Simply reverse process to reinstall.
It is simple enough not to need a manual.
1- open the door, then pull outwards. The door mounts slide right out.
2- lay flat on a towel on the floor. Remove screws on the inside of the door.
3- remove each piece and layer of the door and glass panels. Set them aside in order so you know how it goes back together
4- replace broken inner glass panel
5- put each piece back together, install screws
6- slide door (mounts) back into their homes on the front of the range
It is surprisingly simple. All you need is a #2 Phillips screwdriver and a bit of patience.
Tip: make sure to clean each glass panel while you have the door apart. Use a razor blade for those stubborn burnt on stains.
you need to remove the door. On your model just grab the door and lift and it should lift right off.
Then remove the screws that run along the bottom of the door. Remove the bottom trim and the glass should slide down and off.
Reverse to assemble
The above solution is fine, but you don't have to remove the door. Open the storage drawer for access to the trim screws (3) on the bottom of the door, remove the screws. Have a helper hold the glass along the bottom. Take the three screws on the top of the door trim out. Slide out the glass and put in a safe place. Remove the four screws that hold the handle brackets in place, remove the handle (or tighten if loose). Install the new handle (one screw on each side). Reinstall all parts in the reverse order of disassembly. The entire job took less than 30 minutes.
