Answer Hello Jay! Unfortunately, W10285801 has been discontinued with no further replacements or cross references available and our company is unaware of any other available sources. Sorry about that!
Can you please tell me how to replace this hinge? I need to know how to replace the hinge step by step?
Answer Hello Barbara,
To remove and replace the hinge on unit you will remove teh uper left shield cover and the hinge cover. Once removed open door and remove the 3 screws holding hing in place to cabinet. Once this is done the door will be removed. You will then disassemble door of unit by remobing the screws from around the inside of door. Remove hinge and replace.
I have purchased the hinge assembly. Now I need to know the process in replacing the old one. Does the front cover just snap off as well as the next piece before the hinge. I have been looking at the diagram when I ordered the hinge.
Answer The first step is to remove the screws that hold the hinge to the front of the cabinet and lift straight up. This will disengage the hooks that hold the door in position while the screws are removed or reinstalled. Next, lay the assembly on its' face with the inside of the door facing up. You will need to remember what screws you take out from which holes because they are different. Also, before disassembly, look at the glass and remember or take a picture with you phone of which side of the glass goes toward the top of the door assembly. From here it's just a matter of removing enough screws and once the hinge assembly is in position, putting the screws back in their proper holes.
The hindge on my washing machine broke. Is there any separate parts or just the whole hindge that you need to purchase?
Answer Hello Jenny. As long as none of the other parts broke on the unit, you should be fine with replacing just the hinge 8183202. Hope this helps.
