Splendide 2000 Washer/Dryer Handle Repair

Anyone have success actually using glue to fix a broken washer/dryer handle or is removal and replace the only option? TY

I used super glue on a microwave handle and it lasted 3 years till I replace the micro in my SB.

Welcome to the broken handle club. When I broke mine, I ordered a new handle and used a screwdriver in the broken section to open the door until the part was replaced. Lot of stress on that handle, I doubt that glue will hold it.

I replaced the handle on our 2100. Easy and (relatively) cheap. Are they not available for the 2000? Usually, when people break them the first time and understand why they broke, they usually never break the replacement.

I had to replace mine on my 2100 this past summer. I think because of the amount of pressure that is on tbe handle and the temp changes that the plastic has to endure over time it becomes fatigued then crack and snap. It took me 20 minutes to replace it. So it took 12 years for mine to fatigue and break.

Handles do not break unless they are forced open. Don't pull on them if it says door locked.
The locking mechanism is made reliable by placing thin washers between the white outer case and the locking mechanism on the 2 screws.
Access is thru the gray rubber seal. Remove the spring loaded wire band holding the seal. Then carefully pull seal loose.

I repaired mine on a 2006 Allegro Bus with JB Weld. I built up the area around the break and never had a problem with it. I did remove the handle to repair it.

Ordered a new one when mine broke - Glued the old one while waiting to get new one - WORKED - Replaced with new one and kept the old one, who knows where, as a spare.

So, IMHO if you know how to glue and use the proper type you should be able to repair - and once you understand not to Force it (In My Case DW ) you will be fine.

Let us know what and how it turns out.

Best of Luck,

Just found one at: https://www.amazon.com/Westland-1417.../dp/B00T37YWTG and at:https://www.dyersonline.com/splendid...or-handle.html
This handle is no longer made.
One persons successful door handle repair.
Splendide door handle replacement instructions.
Splendide parts breakdown.
Splendide training manual.
That's the extent of my now-obsolete bookmarks, sorry i can't help further.

For all interested, new Spendide washer/dryer arrived Amazon Prime for $62. With help from YouTube video removed door, broken handle and completed the replacement and re-installation. Less than an hour, no swearing. Add "Spendide Handle Guy" to my RV Resume'!

Just call Westland sales in Milwaukie,OR and buy a new one. Easy to change once you get the door open.
