Called Maytag regarding the latch. Was told I had to order an entire new door that would cost around $170 before shipping and handling. Went on partselect and foundt he part for $2.02. Big difference in price. Very easy to install. Hardest part was getting the spring back on. Would definitely recommend to friends.

Part arrived on March 15. When I went to install it on March 16 I found that it was the wrong size. On the same day I emailed PartSelect of the problem. They responded via email the same day and advised that the correct filter had be located and was being shipped. In addition, a separate e-mail had shipping instructions and an address label. On March 18 the part was returned and presently I am awaiting the replacement part. Todate I am well pleased with PartSelect's responsiveness and handling of the matter.
