First I removed the two screws that hold the element in place. I then pulled the white element out that was about 3 inches long. I then placed it with a black 3" inch part. I placed the two screws back into their oringal holes and finished tighting them with a srcewdrive. Wola ! My job was complete and I was back to washing my clothes again.
Pretty straightforward: easily swapped out the broken latch with the new one and saved a bundle on a service call.
Simple hex screwdriver (not common, but had one anyway.) Two screws and done. Replacement part was exact match.
The plastic door catch had broken. I quickly found the correct part at PartSelect.com and ordered it. It shipped the same day and arrived the next day. It took two minutes to unscrew the old catch and screw on the new catch. Problem solved for about $15, including shipping and handling.
Removed two Phillips head screws, replaced the door catch, then put the screws back in. That's it! No more water all over the floor because of the door popping open during a cycle! Cheap, Quick and Easy!
unscrew the old latch and resecrew the new one. Be careful when you undo the old screws because the old screws are kind of welded in so you need a low torque driver to unscrew them carefully.
The latch is attached with two philips head screws, remove and replace. the reason i responded to this forum is to complement your quick shipping. It was sunday morning and i had just put 5 or 6 pairs of muddy, greasy work pants in the washer, closed the door and started it. Before i left the room, the noise of the washer changed, I turned to see the door open and water spilling out. The latch is plastic and it was broke. After a little investigation I discovered it had been broken before by one of my girls snd glued. The washer is 14years old and this was the first part to fail. So my wife found your site and we ordered two latches. They arrived at our house by 10:30 am on Tuesday. We were thrilled!! Thank you so much.
Remove two screws; remove catch; install new catch (it only goes on one way); replace two screws. Very simple/easy fix.
Simply pulled out the part that broke off in the slot and unscrewed the remaining part of the broken catch still on the door. Used the same 2 screws and screwed in the new catch. The whole proccess only took about a minute and a half.
Remove and install two screws holding catch.
Easy DIY repair - Great delivery of repair part - very speedy
SO the 2 minute repair turned into 20 minutes because I had forgot that 5 years ago when the latch first broke I super glued it back into place! After removing the screws I used a flat head screwdriver as a chisal. It seems that the glued latch gained super powers as it fought to stay on the door. Part Select was great!
Unscrewed the old part and installed the new part with a philips screw driver. Part is an exact fit and working well so far.
..wife was shopping for a new W/D Combo.. repaired unit for $11 plus shipping.. simple deal
