This washer door catch is a replacement from the original. This is only available in black.
This part works with the following brands: Frigidaire, Gibson, Kelvinator, Kenmore, Tappan & White-Westinghouse.
This part fixes the following symptoms:
First, I had to remove 2 screws to take off the 2 broken pieces of the door catch. Then I put the new one on using the same 2 screws. The door is now able to close, but does not lock properly. In order to make it work, I put a thin piece of rubber into the place where the door meets the machine. This causes the lock to engage and the machine to work. I don't know how much longer it will work since the repairman claims that the main bearing is going, but hopefully it will last a bit longer. Part Select got the part to me in one day using the standard shipping, which was impressive. I just wish that I hadn't wasted money on calling a repairman only to have him tell me that he didn't have the part. He charged for the visit anyway even though I told him ahead of time the problem and the model of my machine.

I bought a used front loading washer from a nice lady. These are very expensive new. All it needed was a new part that keeps the door closed during the cycle.
The part arrived in record time but, the hardest part of the job was removing the existing screws. Finally had to resort to pulling out the drill and using it with a screwdriver bit to power out the existing screws. Replacing the part itself was super easy. Plus, had to use the drill to even put back in the existing screws. Have to admit, if it ever breaks again (9 years old now) I am worried about getting those screws out/in without stripping something.
I removed the broken latch and kept the two screws and used them to install the new latch. I held my breath when I started the washer, but it ran just like it was supposed. Not bad for a 12year old washer and a 64 year old female owner. And kudos to Frigidaire for making such a good product. And parts select for making it easy to fix.
We have not yet installed the part, as we epoxied the old part back together.However, the part provided was a perfect match, so as soon as it falls apart again we are installing this new part. Even if it is 2:00 a.m. and insomnia has me doing laundry, I am set! Thanks for the super fast delivery.
First I removed the two screws holding the door latch in place. I removed the broken door latch, cleaned the surface behind it and reinstalled the replacement door latch with the same two screws I originally removed from the door. Before completing the process I also examined the door to the front loading washing machine and noted the hinge and screws were loose. I tightened the hinge screws and closed the door. It worked great!
It was easy to replace. Two screws hold in the part. I wrote down the model and serial number of the washing machine. I went on the website, and within a couple seconds I looked at the diagram and found the part that I needed. I paid for regular shipping and the part came very quickly. It was painless.
I removed 2 screws and put the new latch in. Put 2 knobs on. This save me almost $50 in parts and $120 in labor that the service man was going to charge. I received the parts in 2 days and the service man wasn't going to return for over a week leaving my washer out of service. What a difference! You service was great!
Perfect replacement. Fast shipment. Price was less than "original" part would have cost.
I removed the 2 screws holding the broken door catch in place, and attached the new door catch with them. The repair could not have been easier, and now the door works great.Also, I ordered the part, and it arrived via FedEx the next day. That greatly exceeded my expectations!
I found and ordered a new latch from Partselect.com. After a few days I received the new part. I used a square drive screwdriver to remove the two screws that retained the broken latch, put the new latch in place, and reinserted the retaining screws. The job couldn't have been easier. I couldn't be happier with the quality of the part or the speed of delivery and wouldn't hesitate to order from Partselect.com again.
2 screws out then 2 screws in.
I was having issues with the door catch. It looked worn, so I ordered the $10 (plus $13 shipping) part. Replaced the part, same issues. Figured out the hard plastic door catch was just not designed large enough to keep the door (a.k.a. lid) closed. My brilliant brother suggested I just put a piece of masking tape on the tip of the door catch to enlarge it. Guess what? It resolved the problem. I could have saved $23 and used masking tape that was left in the garage by the previous owner of my house.
The door catch on the washer broke, and I had to epoxy the broken catch to finish my laundry. I looked for the part online, and PartSelect not only had the part but had a photo of it as well. I was very impressed with how quickly the part arrived, and within 15 minutes the repair was complete. Thanks for having the photos and getting the part to us so quickly.
First I tried to unscrew the two screws holding the latch with a phillips screwdriver. When it wanted to slip, I took a closer look at the screw heads and saw they were square drive. I got the proper tool and removed the screws, replaced the latch and replaced the screws in a few minutes.
