This plastic door hook works a treat and is suitable for most Hoover washing machines. This genuine spare part also fits select models from Hoover, Candy, Maytag, Otsein & Zerowatt.

We would also recommend that you check if you'll need a star head screwdriver or allen key to fit this kit as suggested by eSpares customer reviewers.
How to fit the door hinge tip:
"Take the inner screws out first supporting the weight. next take the outer compartment off still supporting the weight as the fixings for the hinge are inbetween the outer and inner part and will snap off if you dont take it apart correctly."

I had exactly the same difficulties but eventually realised that what's important is getting the U in the spring to act against the metal catch not the plastic handle. Once I had that sorted it was no problem

can be a little tricky.
the chrome door surround needs to press against the spring. It took me about 6 goes to get it right

the spring should be fitted so the two legs press against the inside of the door rim
QHow do I fit Washing Machine Door Handle for Hoover Washing Machine (Part # ES544940)...3 Answers
I bought the washing machine handle replacement kit recently, however when I came to fit the handle I noticed that the screws used to unscrew the inner door are of an odd shape/size i.e. it's not a Phillips, Cross-head or Allen key screw.
Can anyone please help advise on what type of instrument I should be using to remove this?
Thanks in advance,

Hi Skybluessam, your fellow customers are right; you'll need a torx head screwdriver to fit this part. You can find one right here: http://www.espares.co.uk/part/kitchen-appliances/p/1/0/0/0/1251179/9-piece-torx-head-screwdr.html

I believe they are "Star" shape bits, commonly referred to a "TORX" bits. Available from most good DIY or Tool Stores.

I've just done the very same job, this morning and fitted a new handle.
You need a set of tamperproof star head screwdrivers or bits. They are designed to remove security screws and special headed bolts etc.
My set is a 16 piece torx bit set and can be obtained at any good DIY store.
Ok staff. I have purchased this kit and am struggling with your attempted explanations. We didn't take a photo before disassembling - doh! CAN YOU PLEASE PROVIDE ONE! There isn't a close enough instructional on YouTube. The EXACT positioning of the spring is the only thing stopping this job getting done. Thanks

Thank you for response. Yes, a photo was a big ask but any kind of diagram would be a help. I do think this could be included on your site or within the kit packaging. The long spring makes it an unfathomable jigsaw puzzle.

We are sorry but cannot provide a photograph as we do not have access to one of theses machines. We buy our own second hand machines to film repairs on and at this time do not have any Hoover washing machines.

Please take a look through the website below to see if you can spot an article that can advise you on your fault.
If not perhaps give Hoover a call and do a quick diagnosis on the phone with them.
