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:
The wind blew the washing machine door shut so hard that the catch snapped in half. I found Part Select dot com on the internet, ordered the part and within a couple of days, it arrived. I didn't even do the repair...my Fiancé did it while I was away at a conference. Easy to fix, great ease of finding the part on Part Select...saved the labor of having a repairman come out to fix it. When in doubt, Do It Yourself!

Removed two screws and replaced catch, attached screws.One problem, the door still would not close tightly enough for the washer to operate. It is now necessary to use a shim to cause full closure. Do you have any other solution?
The local appliance repair store quoted me $80+ for a "kit" to repair the door catch. I saw the part on your website for less than $8. Even with rushed shipping (I have four boys who generate lots of laundry), it was only about $20 total. You guys are AWESOME! I sell tools for women and do-it-yourselfers and am directing my customers to your site. Thank you!!!
removed two screws, cleaned the surface behind catch and reattached. took about 2 minutes
Loosened screws holding the latch and replced it with the new one. Removed screws holding the instrument cover. Disconnected the old light and snapped in the new. Very simple repair for my beloved Frigidaire front end loader.
First removed the existing screws by using a drill with screwdriver bit (thanks to Cathy from Mountainview CA for that suggestion) because was unable to remove them otherwise. New piece does not come with screws, so save your screws. The new piece had a burr that kept it from fitting in, but was easily filed off. Then no problems. Ordered on Sunday, arrived on Thursday with regular shipping. Excellent!
The latch arrived in 3 days. What a piece of cake!!! I removed the broken latch and installed the new latch using the same screws in 5 minutes. It works like a charm!
It was so easy to replace. I called a local appliance store and they wanted approx $105.00 to rush the part or $95 to have it shipped from the east coast...I went on your website and with delivery the cost was $16.07. I was thrilled...the existing screws were in very tight so all I needed was an electric screw driver.
Removed two screws. Removed broken catch. Installed new catch with orginal two screws.
I removed the 2 screws holding the original door catch and simply replaced with the new one, replaced the 2 screws and that was it!
I removed the 2 screws that held the broken latch together. The screws were a little hard to remove. Once I removed the screws, replacing the new latch was a piece of cake.
Unbelievebly fast. I ordered on Sunday. Part was shipped on Monday and I received it on Wednesday. I removed the 2 screws from the old catch and put the new one in, in about 5 minutes. I had a load of wash running 5 minutes after that.
I simply removed the two screws holding the existing (broken) catch and replaced the old with the new in less than 5 minutes. It could not have been easier. I would alsolike to note that I was VERY pleased with how simple it was to find the correct part and with how quickly the part arrived at my door. I will definitely refer PartSelect to anyone who may need a new appliance part.
I removed thescrews , removed the roken part and then placed the new part in replaced screws , done in under 3 minutes
PartSelect is fantastic. Door catch broke on 3 day holiday weekend and given age of washer figured nobody would have the parts. Found PartSelect on line, ordered, paid for expedited shipping, got the part by the end of the week. Took me just a few minutes to screw in the catch and I was doing laundry again the same day. Had a little bit of a problem identifying the part on the schematics but once I figured it out everything was a breeze. Recommend PartSelect highly.
