Paint usually will rub off a rubber part. You can order new handles from any appliance parts house near you or get them online.

This may be caused by some kind of wash product or softener product. You may be using too much. You can use a blue glass cleaner or small amounts of mild abrasive cleaner and water to try to remove it. Drums are made of porcelain or stainless steel and should 'never' wear out.

SOURCE: TRYING TO REMOVE A REAR DOOR OUTER HANDLE

Lower hole in the door jamb loosten allen screw until the cap comes off. Upper hole there is a #20 torx slightly down and inboard of the hole, you need a really long torx bit and pull the handle out slightly. It also helps to pull weatherstrip loose so you can see it.

You may have a worn door bearing.  Have a look.  Both sides have the same hinge assembly for comparison.  Also possible that the hinges have come loose.
Clean out the hinge by spraying on a little WD 40 first...it may fix everything.

SOURCE: Refrigerator won't fit thru door.

I ran into the same problem when I moved into my old house. the door way was to small, so I had to take both doors off the refrigerator to get it through the doorway. But I found out when I moved out of the house, that I was able to open both doors and wiggle it through the doorway. It was a hassle but it was alot easier that removing the doors. Good luck.

The white plastic(?) full length door handles OUTSIDE the refrig are turning yellow on my white, side by side refrig. What can I purchase or use to re-whiten them and make them look clean and white again?


That yellow coloring is most likely a result of the white paint coming off, and the yellow plastic color showing underneath. Other than painting them with a good paint, which you would have to ask a paint expert for the proper type, my suggestion is to replace the handles altogether.

How to remove freezer door handle


There should be one or more hex shaped keys within the door handle, usually on the side or bottom of the handle. Simply loosen them up and the handle should pop right off.

Door handles have turned yellow and i can not get


Try straight chlorine bleach with gloves on that is. If this doesn't remove the yellow stain you can forget it. You will have to replace them instead.

On my Kenmore Elite #106.56683501 the refrigerator door is loose


Depending on the model, and the color, here's your fix.

Stainless with stainless handles- you'll need a hex key. The tiny hole is on the inside of the handle, close to the center. Turn the key until it's tightened.

Stainless with black handle/white/bisque/black- push the door handle up. Careful not to scratch the finish! once the handle pops, pull it straight off. Take a phillips head screw driver, tighten the top screw A LITTLE BIT and then attach again. Insert screws on the door into the holes on the handle, slide down. (will need to be a little tough with it.)
Good luck!

Removing refrigerator door handles


You might try checking to see if the screw head is actually on the handle, but hidden by the handles cover. Look at the side and see if you notice a seam. This can be pried open and the screw head will be seen.

Door handle is loose


If my memory serves me correctly, you should see two posts attached to the refrigerator door right now. The handle slips over these posts and if you look closely there is a little hole in the handle where you would insert a allen key wrench to tighten the little screw against the post protruding from the door itself. With the door handle in your hand, properly match up the correct allen wrench to fit the allen screw very snug. Realign the door handle on the protrucing posts and tighten. Once finished, you should have a tight fitting door handle again. Let us know if we can help further.....Eric
