Re: Loose door handle
Here is the link to the installation manual;
pages 14 and 9 of the manual (16 and 11 of the pdf) describe how to remove the toe panel, and the door facia panel. You should then be able to access where the handle is attached.
Hope this helps :)

Depends on the brand and type of handle. I'll give you a few general ideas. The first easy one is to look under both ends of the handle for small set screws. If you see them, a small allen wrench should tighten the set screws and the handle. The next type requires the removal of either the inner door panel or outer panel. Some dishwashers will have screws along the inner edge of the door panel. you remove the screws and either the inner panel will come loose or the outer panel will come off (depends on make and model) Once the door is apart you should be able to see the handle screws to tighten. Some doors also have a screw in both bottom corners facing upward that may need removed . Best I can do at this time.

You have one of two door attachments:
1.) There are two 3/32" K set screws (Allen Head) at the top and bottom of each handle. Back off these screws until the handle comes off. The is a stud with a screw - tighten and reattach the handle.
2.) There are two brackets mounted to each refrigerator door. One at the top and one at the bottom. At the top of each bracket is a oversize hole. On the back of the handle there are two screws. These screws fit into the oversize hole. Then you push down into a slot to secure the handle. To remove the handle you push up on the handle until the door handle screws are into the oversize holes.
The screws on the door bracket often become loose. Tighten these screws. Sometimes the mounting screws on the door handle become loose as well.
Be careful, if you tighten everything up too much you will not be able to remount the door handle. Adjust the screws for a tight fix
Open the door and loosen the self threading screws around the sides of the inner door panel. Once this has been achieved lift the inner panel up so that you can access the door handle screws. Tighten these fasteners and reassemble the door panel.
after removing the stainless cover l tried to disassemble the door further but found it difficult, there is a hard thick plastic cover, i took my dremel and cut a small hole large enough for a wrench to fit and tighten the thin nut on the handle, line up the hole with where the nut would be on the other side, its a pretty quick and easy fix, l dont understand why they didnt have the openings there throughthe plastic to do the tightening since it is the stainless steel that keeps the water where it should be.
You need to remove the inner door panel to access the screws that hold the door handle in place. I had to do this about a year ago - the screws are located around the outside edge of the door. Be careful; the inner parts are plastic, so take your time. It's a fairly easy repair.
Ok you need to use plastic or rubber washers against the glass so it doesn't break. To stop the handle comming loose again you need to put "Lock Tight" on the screw threads then tighten carefully only untill the handle isn't loose. You can get this from any good hardware store. cheers
Handle needs to be replaced part# 154537303 (blk). Un plug unit, take 4 screws from behind blk control panel out. Panel will fold down, remove two torx head screws from door latch, replace with new one and put it back together and your done.
