We have a comprehensive range of washing machine door parts that will help fix the closing mechanism on models from many top manufacturers.
Why do Washing Machine Door Handles Break?
In most households the washing machine is one of the most commonly used appliances and it therefore makes sense they will require some degree of maintenance to deal with the wear and tear of regular use. The handle is one of the most commonly damaged parts of a washing machine because, despite most of them being made out of plastic, they’re subject to a lot of wear. Perhaps you’ve tried to open the door before the cycle was finished one too many times, the latch could have been knocked when someone was unloading the machine, or maybe you simply slammed the door a bit too hard when beginning a wash. Whatever the cause, there’s no need to buy a whole new appliance when a part will get your washer up and running again.

Tips for Fixing the Broken Door
The first step in replacing your washing machine door handle should be to remove the door; you’ll find it much easier to work this way. With certain models you may have to then unscrew the door into halves in order to access the latch. If you aren’t used to this sort of work it’s a good idea to take photos of how everything fits together, before you deconstruct the handle, as it can be really tricky to put these things back together. In particular, look how the springs attach to the handle.
