Unless the hinges actually broke out, only the screws should need replacing - with larger diameter screws or rivets. If that can be done, probably about $50-75 range if you explain situation up front so he can bring a selection of screws and rivets. If new hinges have to be ordered and he has to come back later to install them after they come (or he gets them at an appliance parts store) maybe $100-150 range plus about $15-25 for the hinges, I would guess.

Pesonally, I would not use a handyman if I were you - I would just have an Appliance Repairman bring the hinges with him when he comes (you will have to give him make and model number from label, usually right inside door) and fix it in one trip. If hinges are not needed, assuming they came from stock at his company then probably no charge for them. If had to be ordered, then have them put in. More likely to get profesisonal job with proper fit from appliance repairman, rather than a jury rig job - probably about $100-125.
