My husband wouldn't take the door off the hinges. He couldn't see how that would help in gaining access to the screws for the handle. So, it remains not fixed. Does taking the door off the hinges aid in removing the front panel?
Expert:  Whrlp Master Tech replied 1 year ago.

yes you have to take the front panel off the hinges to gain access to the door handle screws.

as shown in the part breakdown link that I sent you last!
