CustomerPaul from Mt. Pleasant SC

Catch mounted on door broke

The door had always opened with the wrong swing and it wasn't til I needed to repair this that I noticed you could change the swing. I changed the swing of the door and then noticed that the clip was included on both sides so i did not need to repair the catch. I still have the part so when it breaks again, I can just pop it in.

Door would not stay shut

Took off the four screws to get to the female clip and used pliers to squeeze it out. Next was using pliers to pinch out the male connector and place the new one in.

Timer knob broken; could not turn on dryer. Door would not stay closed.

Pushed timer knob on - very simple. Pulled old door catch out and pushed new door catch in with needle nose pilers. Took about 5 minutes for both. Items were easy to locate on your website and shipping was fast. Thanks!!

Door catch would not latch

Well tried to find this simple part around Columbus and even maytag website no luck.Parts select had it to go and arrived earlier than expected.Fixed it less than 5 minutes works great.taken longer to put the light bulb back in,Really like the accuracy and quick response from parts select.If I had called a service tech probably would have cost $50.00 or more for a part that cost a little over $3.00 and saved this site in case I need to order other parts.Thank you
