Door would no longer stay closed enough for dryer to run

popped out the old, broken female latch, popped in the new one in less than 30 seconds. We had been leaning stool against the dryer door for 5 years. Now it works exactly like it is supposed to.

CustomerAntonio from Arlington TX

Dryer door would not stay closed during operation.

Got on line and ordered a door striker and door latch. When my parts arrived, they also came with instructions. Turned out the metal clip on back of stiker had broken and would not help the plastic striker to close over the door latch. I only replaced the plastic striker and saved the door latch. Parts were around 16.00 dollars plus a little shipping cost, saved me a 45.00 service charge from a repairmen plus the cost of parts. So easy!!!!!

Dryer knob brock off and installed with new

To remove and install the new parts, I followed the video instruction at whirlpool.com. Then removed the old knobs and put the new ones in. The new one created a rough contact and needed a little lithium grease to make a smooth insertion to prevent the friction from damaging the new part. It was an easy fix and took about ten minutes. Good luck in your repairs!

CustomerThomas from Hatboro PA

Door latch broken

unscrew the screws at bottom front of dryer, lift outward, upward, the bottom of the front of the dryer. As the dryer front tilts outward/upward from the bottom, the area where its hinged at the top of the front will disengage from the main frame of the dryer and the face of the front of the dryer comes off. remove the old door latch by manipulating the plastic body of the latch (wiggle, twist pinch . . .) until, from the back, you can push the old latch forward through the front of the front of the dryer. At this point, you can put the new door latch back in from the front and push it in to place.

Dryer door latch replacement

It was so easy to repair that my wife did it. She used a screw driver to pop out the old, worn plastic part that the door latch goes into and snapped in the new part and it was all done. So nice to be able to fix it yourself!

CustomerSusan from Avon CT

Dryer door wouldn't stay closed

Took 2 screws out of the bottom of the dryer so the front face plate came off. This allowed access to the door latch catch, which was easy to pull out with pliers. Pushed in new latch catch until it "popped" into place. Easy, easy, easy!

Door would not stay closed

Repair part just snapped into place. It took longer to open the bag then do the repair. I thought it was going to be difficult to find a part for this dryer but partselect had the right part.
Thanks

The dryer door would not stay closed.

After 20+ years of service, the plastic part that holds the dryer door closed, broke. I orderd the replacement part on a Monday and received it on Wednesday!
By applying constant pressure with my thumb, the replacement part 'snapped' into place - all of 4 seconds.
Fast delivery of parts and fast instal, made for a great day.

Door latch was broken. Door would not stay closed.

The instructions that accompanied the part was extremely helpful. I removed two screws, lifted off the front panel, used the pliers to remove the old latch, pushed the new latch into the hole. I then replaced the panel (The part that is attached to the door was not broken). I tightened the two screws and the job was complete. I saved a very expensive service call. :)
