My Repair & Advice
Remove retaining trim ring screws on inside of door with screw gun. Removed existing hinge plate screws. Removed plastic hinge bushings after taking off plate. Put bushings on new hinge and put it in the correct location and position. Tighten hinge plate with screws and put on retaining trim back on the inside of door. Removed broken hinge from front of washing machine, and using the same (4) screws installed new hinge with door attached in same location. Fit perfectly the first try.
