Hello. My name is ***** ***** I'll be helping you with your appliance question today. Please wait a few moments while I review your question.

So to start, unfortunately this handle is rather expensive and if the bottom of the handle broke, gluing it is just a temporary fix and it really just needs to be replaced. The handle part number is ***** But to even replace the handle you need to take the door apart which is quite difficult so below is a video that shows you how to take the door apart. Now the video makes it look easy but that door has likely been taken apart a dozen times because it's clipped in much tighter and it's difficult to pry the door apart.
