OK, what you're seeing here is a comparison of the washer hinge bushing service kit (part number 8801177; it's on the left) and the old worn out bushing/hinge on the right. As you can see, the bushing isn't quite the same size...so the metal mounting plate on the door won't fit into the new bushing/hinge assembly. What I did was to mount the new mounting plate that came with the kit onto the door, then use a fine tooth metal saw (a craftsman multi-tool if it matters!) to trim the 'hook' part of the door where it stuck out past the hinge plate.
