The repair was easy but you need a star driver. They didn't use Phillips or slot screws. I took all the screws off the inside of the door and the latch was easily revealed. It replaced easily, and the new one works fine. All I can say is - the latch assembly was made of plastic at some stress points. The design engineer should be shot. These should have been metal. I noted in the new latch assembly, they have improved the design but it's still plastic. A few more cents in manufacturing would prevent this failure. I expected more of Maytag in terms of design integrity. But, it's the only failure I've had with the unit.
