And why the f@#k are companies making plastic handles?

The same reason they make everything out of plastic.
Less expensive to make and they sell more replacement parts. :)

 :tickedoff:

So it's either because of stupidity or greed...   :( 


Anyway, I found the replacement parts here: http://www.searspartsdirect.com/partsdirect/part-model/Samsung-Parts/Washer-Parts/Model-WFJ1254XAA/1482/0153200/50033415/00001?blt=06&prst=&shdMod=

A new handle is $5 and the part I cut in half to get the door open is $8.50 so if the next guy uses tie wire to pull the latch into the open position he'll save himself the trouble of cutting the door open and $8.50  Also the pin-parall that works with the latch has been replaced with a new part according to the Sears website and cost $2.16

The part numbers are:

Latch: DC97-05111A

Handle: DC97-09760A

The pin-parall number used to be: DC64-00564A
BUT NOW HAS BEEN replaced with: 6043-001093

Apparently this was a manufacturers substitution to probably make the handle more sturdy.

Thank you very much for the advice. Just saved me a call out for the repair guy. Managed to repair the handle and open the washing machine.

Thanks again!

Ditto, thanks guys.

I realize this is an old thread but after thrashing with a Samsung WFJ1254 door that would not open, this thread saved me the destructive opening procedure above (or worse). I used a 3/8" hook bent into a wire coat hanger, inserted below the latch hook up, and easily pulled the latch open. A number of later Samsung models have an easier manual override for the latch, this model does not.

PS. Ironically this latch was also broken by a 100 lb girl...
