The amount of force required to pull the door open seems to be more than you should expect to be handled by three quite small plastic lugs. Is there an upgraded handle with stronger fixings?

By chrisrg42 - Bracknell - 22 October 2011
  • When my handle snapped for the 2nd time i spread a layer off silican sealent on the handle prior to screwing it back in place. Never needed ro replace the part since. By Jim - Essex - 10 October 2015
  • Yes, very fragile and held by 3 screws on long plastic lugs that seem mechanically vulnerable to leverage off the intended 'straight pull'. If you've got it at a good height and angle to where you normally stand it's likely to be trouble free. Obviously been noted by Bosch as it has been designed to be easy to change and is a very quick fix. I'm thankful for small mercies. By C RICHARDS - KENT - 13 September 2015
  • This is our seventh time of changing this door handle, not brute strength required to snap them off (thankfully easily available parts from Espares). Poor design, so why oh why have you not listened to all these concerns Bosch and done something about it? It requires four screw sections not three for stability. By DJ - SW Wales - 08 October 2013
  • This is replacement handle number 3 for me too. Same problem as everyone else. Tumble drier is fantastic apart from the poor handle design. By MrscCMJ - South East - 27 August 2013
  • This will be number 3 a very bad design from a very good company, steel inserts should be moulded into the handle so it strengthens the screw boss, hope bosch read this By binksy45 - isle of man - 25 July 2013
  • Yes this is the second time my handle has broken. This time I bough 2 handles in anticipation, as I know it will happen again. On both occasions I have found the handle pretty tricky to replace. If the plastic pillar that the screw is screwed into snaps off at the base it is easy to grip it with a pair of pliers and remove to screws to reuse. But on both occasions some of the plastic pillars have snapped off halfway up the screw and impossible to get hold of with pliers. I have used a very thin Stanley knife to dig into the plastic still on the screw to jam it, whilst unscrewing. Not easy I can tell you. I bet Bosch engineers have a special little tool to get over this problem,. Its bad design for sure and Bosch should sort it!!! By Chris - Lymington - 12 July 2013
  • Shockingly poor design. This is the second replacement in 2 years and I have been very careful to pull the handle from the centre and not one side as the engineer who came out to repair the handle under warranty instructed. Not what I'd expect from Bosch. By Anonymous - - 01 May 2013
  • Same here. Replacing for the second time, using epoxy resin to glue the new one on as well as the screws. Hopefully this will last longer. Only a year since it was replaced By Anonymous - - 08 February 2013
  • As another correspondent says, this part is either fragile or a poor design. I would suggest the latter as the whole force of opening the door (against the resistance of the catch) pulls against the screws and their plastic threads. If, leaning down from a standing position, you then tend to put most effort on the top part of the handle, i.e. one screw only, this exacerbates the situation. By 2 sheds - Westbury - 08 October 2012
  • I have model WTW84560GB/09 and the three lugs have snapped. Almost 2 years old, and I'm unsure if I'm under warranty as I bought it from Boots and their site says 2 years, but Bosch seems to say 1 year. I'm surprised that the handle is attached in this way as it seems very fragile. I have a washing machine with the same handle so am now being extra gentle with it. I'm going to try and get a spare handle and see if my husband can fit it. Loath to pay for anyone to fix it for me - especially if this is going to be a recurring problem. Husband says serves me right for buying expensive rubbish. But it has been a good dryer apart from that, and it was the only one which would fit under a fixed bench in the laundry. I get the door open by applying pressure with my fingertips and pulling. By Kiwigirl - Edinburgh - 13 April 2012
  • I do not think Bosch have upgraded the handle as this has the same part number as the one on their website. It is either fragile or a poor design. This is also my second handle. One naturally pulls at the top, and this eventually snaps off the top lug. The first time I had the problem, the whole handle came off with my washing inside! I contacted Bosch and was reluctantly sent a replacement, but they would not accept that it was a design fault. I did notice that the handle was the most popular Bosch tumble drier part purchased from this website. By lag11 - London - 03 December 2011
  • The handle snapped off my tumble dryer yesterday, no undue force used, now have full load of washing stuck in machine including all work uniforms, Bosch tell me they can't get out for another week, mine is still under warranty, never had any problems like this with previous dryers. Again all three lugs sheared through. By bg - southeast - 01 December 2011

  • If the door handle has completely pulled off with the door shut, you can prise open the door with a flat bladed screwdriver or other object such as a knife or fork. Chances are that the three flimsy plastic pillars have completely snapped off and if you try to remove the Torx screws (which you'll need to fx the new handle), they'll just twizzle around. You therefore need to remove the outer panel of the door. To do this, unscrew the three screws at the hinge end, from inside of the door. You can then prise off the outer door panel to get to the broken plastic pillars to grip them with pliers whilst removing the Torx screws. Don't worry - the hinge just stays in place on the drier even if you take the whole door off, and when you've fitted the new handle, you can just clip the front and back panels of the door together and refit it at the hinge with the three Torx screws. The door catch isn't fixed with anything inside the door - it's just held loosely in place when the front and back door panels are closed together. It's a straightforward task - you might even find you have a small bladed screwdriver which will remove the Torx screws, without having to buy a Torx bit. I've just replaced the handle on my daughter in law's drier for the fifth time in recent years. So much for German engineering and design! Hope that helps a bit. Best of luck. David.

    Answer for 'mumof2'. Remove all the screws from the inside of the door frame and you should be able to prise off the outer door skin to access the broken handle pillars to remove them.

  • I'm having this exact problem - the handle has completely sheared off, nothing left to grip on or duct tape together. I cannot see how to get this bl**dy door off. There is not enough room to get a screwdriver (or similar) in between the frame and the actual door to prise it open. Please help! By mumof2 - Kent - 07 April 2016
  • I used Duct tape as temp solution - enabled us to open & close door & use it while ordering spare handle By Andy - Warwickshire - 07 January 2015

    This type of handle is fixed solidly to the door and does not open the door it pulls the door open. The door should simply pull open or prise using a flat blade.

    We believe it is a Tork 15 but kits Stock Number: ES1251179 and Stock Number: ES1525124 will both do the job.

Is it a case of taking the back off the door and then just screwing the 3 screws into the handle? Thanks What a poor design

    If the model numbers (aside of the suffix) match then it is likely the part will be identical apart from the colour.
