Flipping door handle from one side to the other

Its pretty easy to see how the screws come out to remove the door 'off' the dryer, but the problem im having is how to actually get the little door latch off the door itself, to move it on the other side...there seems like there are 2 little 'pins' that seem to be logged in the door (by design), but it looks like they should 'pop' out with relative ease, but thats not the case..i've tried tapping them gently with a rubber mallet but to no avail.

SOURCE: Handle Replacement on a HKMS155L Microwave

I think you have solved your problem already.

I have seen your requesty only now and I am sending the diagram to replace handle.

You remove door latch (nr 3 on diagram) first, then you unscrew the screw nr .8 and remove handle (nr.7).

Below the diagram:

SOURCE: My dryer will not stop when I open the door, only

If you take a plastic spoon and press on the "Thingy" it should click when you press it and again when you release it

If it does not do that, the micro switch is goosed and needs replacing

SOURCE: Trying to replace the KHMS155LSS3 handle...

To replace the plastic handle on the KitchenAid KHMS155LSS-3 you pry open the door cover from the inside to release the upper tangs (~10). I used razor blades wedged between the tang point to hold them disengaged. Pull the front cover off the door starting from the handle end. Once the top edge is free, the bottom can be remover. See Pitcures.
Repeat the door cover removes with the handle attached from the front after you lift the tangs._828.jpg_829.jpg_830.jpg_831.jpg

I need to replace a sensor kit on a whirlpool dryer model len2000pwo. should i go in from the back of the dryer or front/top!!! The part was in the dryer drum when i found it so im not sure the best...


Disconnect the power source to your dryer before you begin to open its cabinet. Either unplug the unit from the wall outlet, remove the appropriate fuse from the fuse box, or flip the appropriate breaker in the circuit breaker panel.

Opening the cabinet for newer Whirlpool brand models starts at the control panel. Begin by removing the end caps found at either end of the console. Lift them from the back, and then pull them towards you. There will be two screws holding the console in place. Remove the screws, and then slide the console towards you and flip it up. You will find an additional three screws at the back of the cabinet top. Remove these and slide the cabinet top towards you and lift it off the unit.

Proceed by removing the kick-plate. There are two spring catches that need to be disengaged before you can remove the kick-plate. Each spring catch is found about four inches in from each side. Use a putty knife or some other thin and flat object to wedge in between the front panel and the kick-plate. Push down on the clips with the putty knife to disengage.

Open the dryer door and remove the screws that are holding the hinges to the door. Tilt the door up and pull on it gently to remove it. Continue the dismantling process by removing all the screws you find that are holding the front panel to the unit. There will be door switch screws, ground wire screws, and other screws holding the front panel to the bulkhead.

Reassembling the entire unit is basically the disassemble process in reverse. Replace the front panel of your dryer. Replace the dryer door, and then replace the kick-plate. Reattach the cabinet top and then push the control panel back in place and reattach the two end caps.

How do you change the dryer door from a left to right opening to a right to left opening. Thid is a series 90 kenmore


Open the dryer door. There should be approximately three screws that hold the hinges on there on the right side (as you said yours currently is a left to right opening). Remove the screws that hold the door on. As you hold the dryer door removed from the dryer, turn it counter clockwise so that the handle is now on the opposite side. Lay it on the floor. Now, remove the screw hole covers from the opposite side of the dryer opening ( the left side) (these can be removed with a fingernail or a thin flat tipped screw driver to pry them out). This will expose the screw holes on the opposite (left)side of the dryer. Take the removed covers and place them in the original screw holes on the right side. Now simply reinstall the door hinges in the newly exposed screw holes on the left side. This will only work if your dryer is designed to have both types of openings. Good Luck!

The sliding door handles of my 1998 Toyota Sienna have both broken.


I replaced both of my sliding door handles this weekend. It was actually pretty easy. Cheapest I could find the handles was a little over $70 each. The interior panel is held on with one screw and 10 nylon clips. The one screw is in the cup holder. Put you hand in the cup holder and push out at the bottom. It pops right off exposing the one screw. I started on the clips from the top at a corner. Seemed to be the easiest place to slide a screw driver under. Once I got the screw driver in, I started working my fingers under the panel. The clips run mostly along the top and bottom about 6 inches from the edge. I made an effort to apply the force as close to the clips as I could to reduce flexing the panel. Once I got the first clip to pop out the other followed pretty easy and the panel lifted right off. Carefully peel back the plastic barrier. The exterior handle is held on with two 10mm bolts. Connecting the short cable was pretty obvious once you could see everything. Now I have to teach everyone to open the side doors very gently! Hope this helps.

How do you reverse the door on a front load dryer. Model #GLE02152ES1


Remove the hinges from the dryer and then unscrew them from the door. Remove the 4 screws on the opposite side of the door so the inner and outer door panel detach. You will also have to remove 3 phillips head screws that hold the door handle to the panel so you can flip it, because top and bottom are not symmetrical. One of the 3 is hidden under the handle, you will see it when the other 2 are off. Rotate the handle and reassemble handle and inner door panel. Put the hinges back on opposite side and also switch the door latch. PS, one glitch is that the light cutoff switch is on the right side, so the door has to seat well to turn it off.

Kitchenaid model KHHS179LSS Microwave oven handle replacement


There is a pin holding the door on upper right hand corner of the door. Holding the door in the open position, lift up on the door a little and remove the pin. The door will come off. There are two screws on the edges of the door on the end where the handle is located. Remove the screws. Now, Take a slim screw driver, and carefully pry between the inside door panel and the ourside door panel starting at the end where the door handle is. Lift the inside of the door out. The opposite end of the inside door panel will come out last. Believe me, this works. Getting it back together is a little bit different, but it snaps back together without using tools. Just put the inside of the door back by laying it down with the handle side down after you have replaced the handle of course. Now, pushing in on the inside of the door panel starting on the handle side, start with lining up the panel and push gently. It will go back into place much much easier than it comes out.

Ge profile refrigerator door handle is loose


I had this problem on this model and just repaired it.... and I am no mechanic. The bottom of the handle was loose. You'll see there is a cap on the top and bottom of the handle. You need to pop the cover off of the end that is loose. For the bottom part of the handle, I used a flat head screwdriver under the most southern portion of the handle, lifted the handle of the screwdriver towards me. The cover popped with minimal effort. Tighten the screw and replace cover. Pretty, pretty, pretty easy!

Door handle


I bought a handle and took a chance that I would figure it out. It turns out to be pretty simple. Open the dryer door and you will see 10 phillips head screws on the back of the door. There are also torx(star shaped) screws. Remove only the phillips head screws. This will separate the plastic outer ring from the door. On the back of the plastic ring are 2 screws that hold the handle. Remove the screws, replace the handle and put the ring back on the door. Put the 10 screws back and your done.
