open the oven door all the way and look down at the hinges. there is a little locking clip that you swing into position that locks the hinge from closing. it might be stiff and need some cleaning depending on how old and dirty your oven is. Also you might have to push down on the oven door to make the hinge open fully to get the locking tabs into place. making shore that the locking clips stay in place and hold open the hinge as you lift the oven door slowly towards its closing position and you will see the whole hinge lift up from inside the oven cabinet and the door will just lift out. be careful not to catch your fingers. make sure the looking tabs stay in place during removal as the hinge is very hard to get back into this position again. re fitting is the reversal making sure that you have pushed the base of the door all the way back into the cabinet and push down on the as to open it to release the tabs.
i just had a similar problem .the door would fall and i had to lift the top of my door hinge to close it .I found that the pin on the door hinge spring had fall.en out . I installed it back and now it works the way it should.the spring should feel tight with no movement.
Although very tight (because the oven is only 1 yr old) i managed to get the hinges into the open position, then slide the door into position on the oven and close the door. The hinges did go back and lock as they should but I struggled for almost 30 mins before success.
It sounds to me that the oven door hinges need to be replaced, especially if it is a drop down door
They need replacing as a pair.
There is no povision made for adjustment on hinges.
Hope this helps you.
I have a different model Whirlpool oven but if the door opens downwards then there are usually two smalll catches on top of the main hinges. Lift these up (they can be quite stiff) away from the oven, partially close the door and it should lift upwards to free the hinges.
ok wht you have to do is grab the hinge with pliers or your hand and fold the hinge to the open position,carefull this hinge has some pressure to it and you dont want to pinch your skin ,once the hinge is open,you want to take a screw or strong nail and stick it thru the hole that is between the top of the hinge and bottom in the center put the nail thru the hole and let the hinge close slow i,it will hold the hinge 3/4 open,now hook the door on it will be 3/4 open once you feel it latch on the door open the door all the way pull the nails out and close the door ,it takes a little practice but youll get it remember to use the nail to hold the hinge open,youll see the hole on the hinge
