    I am now on our 4th broken handle for this washer. I don't believe I have overtightened the replacement parts, but they do not last. The most recent broke within a week of being installed.

The service repair tech from Best Buy ordered parts from them for my washer. If you search their website, you may be able to identify the exact part number and order it that way... I am not sure if they sell to the public but it's worth a shot... Hope that helps..

If you can't track that down..e mail me at and I'll see if I can track that down for you... I just got a pdf copy of the service manual for the matching gas dryer.. I am trying to find the service manual for the washer too..

My hotpoint washing machine (model wma50) will not start due to the door lock light flashing yet the door is closed

common problem on these machine's, you need a new door handle which comes as a full assembley with spring and all attached.

open the door, using star screw driver remove top and bottom screws along with two near the catch.

the doo wil split enough to remove old handle and fit new 1.

Need a new door opening handle?? the handle broke

You should be able to order one from Splendide. In the meantime, try using a screw driver to manually push the door release button.

Door lock sencor not working properyl

You probably need to fit a new door handle spring, and or a new door catch.
You will need to undo all the screws that hold the 2 halves of the door together and seperate the 2 halves of the door.
Then you will be able to see the problem, and repair as repair as req'd.

How do I replace a handle on a Frigidaire front loading washer

This was easy when I really looked at it--2 screws on the inside of the door and it was off. Apparently it was designed to break easily to prevent damage to the latch and was made easy to replace.

Door Handle Loose and tightening with allen wrench does NOT work ...

Just did this on mine today. Use an allen wrench to back off both the upper and lower set screws (Note: you do not need to back them all the way out). The handle will then easily pull away from the door. With a 1/4" socket, tighten the screws holding the upper and lower lugs on the door. Place the handle back on and tighten the upper and lower set screws.

How to replace new door handle

Why can no-one supply a photo. Even with the last set of instructions there are still a lot of assumptions, e.g. which way is the handle pointing when it is face down!
