Age of Appliance1 - 4 years
First I made sure the breaker for the appliance was turned off!
I only had to unscrew all the screws from the inside door.
Next I used pliers to pry the old Latch Assembly (it is all pig tailed so only to plugs to undo).
Next, I snapped the new Latch Assembly into the two sockets.
Screws were replaced and wa la!
Turned breaker on and tested. Easy as pie. Took about 10 minutes from collecting the tools, fixing the problem, and replacing all the tools.
I actually had my 14 year old daughter do it so that she could learn how to make small repairs. This would have easily cost approximately $150 for a repairman to come and fix.
Then we went to the garage and unstuck the valve on the carberator to our '75 Chevy! (it was cold).
Not bad for a couple of girls!
