Door Catch came apart inside the door

The door catch dislodged in the door and apparently broke. The hardest part was getting it out of the door because in trying to remove it, the piece fell into the inside of the door. I could have easily just installed the new part (it snaps right in with great ease, that part took exactly 5 seconds). But hearing that old piece rattle around inside the door would have made me a little nuts. So I decided to take the door apart to retrieve it. It was just a bunch of screws from around the perimeter of the door, but I also had to unhinge it to do the job. Putting the door back together wasn't as easy as I had hoped, with some pretty tight fits and the glass dislodging. Had a few moments where I was regretting. But I got the old part out, snapped the new one right in. I'm sure an appliance guy would have charged me $60 - 90 just for coming out. Instead I repaired the dryer for the cost of a $3 part. One small lesson learned here -- dryer doors are much like refrigerator doors, or at least mine is. There is a door catch on both sides of the door so you can hinge it to open either way. I could have done the repair for nothing! But I love parts select for just this reason. I don't do major repairs, but replacing pieces on appliances couldn't be easier with this service!

I took off all the back plates of dryer. (2 sets). Then I took off the heating element. It appeared to be in tact but had some blackening coloration on plate. Ordered new part, replaced the element (tested before I put the back plates back on) and it worked perfectly again. I was especially happy with Parts Select because I ordered the part on a Sunday night and it arrived on Tuesday at noon (regular shipping)!!

Just as your helpfull diagram of the dryer said, removed the rear panel,there it was, i recongnised it by the part you sent, pull it out of it's position, had a little truble figuring out the piece that fits on where the electric prongs are, after looking found out the piece was held on with a clip that goes inside the housing, Haaa. the rest was easy. Thanks,It works great. Dick

Ordered entire Maintenance kit - good call because it was the tensioner pulley that failed and cut the belt. To replace, had to raise the top (2 screws in lint screen slot)and pull the entire front off (2 screws - 1/ea on top inner edge of front door panel then lift it up and out) Replaced both rollers, then used the parts kit shipping box to prop up the front of the drum while installing the belt and tensioner pully. Re-assembled in reverse order, works fine.
