A door handle on my Bosch washing machine is broken and I am trying to replace it. I have bought a replacement handle, but swapping the two is not as easy as I hoped it would be.
It consists of 2 parts, small one (part A) that goes through the hole in the door frame and the handle itself. I am able to fit it with the broken handle, because the part of the handle that the metal pin goes into is broken therefore I am able to move it enough to put the small part though the square plastic bit in it. Top metal pin I don't have, and I hope handle would still be functional without it.
What I tried to do with the new handle is:
- put the bottom metal pin into the handle (pin slides out of the frame easily)
- put the small plastic hook into the door frame (part A)
- put the handle (with the pin) into the frame
- connect the small part (A) with the handle (put the back hook into the handle)
Frame with the pin in, with no part A nor handle
Part A in the frame, marked spot is what goes into the handle hole
Part A in the handle, you can see where the handle is broken at the bottom so the pin does not stay in place
Is the 1 - 4 method above correct?
Do I maybe need to take the whole door frame apart to fix the handle?
