    Due to the design of the door handle, it's not just a simple remove the old one and fit the new one. The central pin has to be removed to get the old handle off then the new door handle built on the door which involves trying to line up 5 holes blindly as they are behind the handle itself, the spring moves out of position and the latch falls out and when you do eventually get it altogether the spring has moved of its guide slot and the door handle doesn't have enough spring to open so you have to start again. It's a fun family game to try and line it up and get it fitted, but once it does you have an overwhelming sense of euphoria and you realise everything is going to be OK.

    Fitting the washing machine handle was a fiddle to be honest, but totally worth it considering the cost saved. The site is very well thought through and makes it easy to positively identify the necessary part. A very positive e-commerce experience which I would happily repeat.

  • Q How to fit this? 3 Answers

    Hi there, i bought this item White Washing Machine Door Handle Kit (ES835853). However it didnt come with any instructions. Also I didnt see how the old handle was fitted before. The problem I have now is that the catch is loose and isnt catching the door lock so the machine wil not start. I know this sounds ridiculous but i am an engineer!! (electrical) Just cant figure it out. The hook part of the latch is facing away from the centre, however it is loose and free to move on the pin (the way I have fitted it anyway!) PLEASE HELP!

      The correct link to the video for unlocking the door is: This has also been added to the part. Note: It may be easier and safer to release the door from above by removing the top.

  • Q Replacing door handle when the door is locked shut 2 Answers

    The door handle is broken but the door is locked shut and I can't open it. How can I open the door or take the door off? thanks

      Anonymous answer.....your solution with a chisel sounds a bit drastic. Also I do not see anywhere the video that you refer to???

      You need to remove the handle to get to the lock. Use a narrow chisel - 1/4 inch. The handle itself is attached to the spindle at two points, chop through each with the chisel and the handle will come off the door. You can then hook the latch back and open the door. Watch the video to see where to cut, it worked for me!

      Hi there, this part doesn't come assembled, but it is really really easy to put together, the parts just sit in to the slots on the handle.
