Having just wrestled (literally!) with this very problem, let me try to clarify this a bit. On our Kenmore model (#253 707 524 07) at least, once the securing screws have been removed from the top and bottom handles, you have to tilt the handles sideways until the angled return with the 2 screw holes has (a) cleared the top of the lower door and (b) cleared the bottom upper door (will make more sense when you're working on it, I promise!). Then, counterintuitively, you have to pull the lower handle firmly DOWNWARDS to release it from the wide, flat screw attached to the door, and the upper handle UPWARDS -- and voila! Then it's just a matter of reversing everything, as per the hinges.
