Will this part fit my appliance? [?]

Description

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.

Includes:

  • Silver colour
  • Latch spring 
  • Door handle 
  • Handle latch pin 
  • Door hook

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."

    Rather than pay a hefty call out charge a friend suggested espares. I really did not know what to expect but when the pack arrived the parts were in as described. Despite the catch being fiddly to fit which of course is not espares fault, the parts fitted perfect. Totally delighted for little more than a tenner. Saved me well over £40. Thanks espares.

      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

  • Q How do I fit Washing Machine Door Handle for Hoover Washing Machine (Part # ES544940)... 3 Answers

    Hi, 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, YK

      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. Good Luck!

      the sprig should be behind the latch so as to push it away from handle in order for it to lock when closed

      I would gues that you have not got the spring located correctly to hold the latch in the closed position.

      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. http://www.washerhelp.co.uk/washing-machine-repairs.html

      Its the 2 sticking up curved parts on the spring, one fits in normally as you would think, the bottom one actually goes down into the next recess and the forward part of the recess (as it is walled in between) This is what makes the spring work.
