This is a shoulder screw and is used in conjunction with multiple appliances within your home. This specific model is size 10, and it has 16 threads to an inch. This part is made entirely of metal and is chrome-colored. The shoulder screw measures to be less than an inch long, and has a flat bottom and top. In general screws are typically made of metal, and the purpose of them is to be used as a fastener when attaching one piece/part to another. This model is sold individually.
I simply unscrewed the broken latch and replaced it with the new latch. Two machine bolts were involved and it was a snap.

The repair consisted of just removing the old, damaged latch and replacing the new one. Only two screws held the latch. The difficult part was finding the part without a model number. Kudos to Partselect.com for providing pictures online of so many replacement parts. I searched their website, providing all the info I had on the washer, but I did not have the model number. The website accepted the info I had and provided me pictures of possible matches; I found it! Thanks, Partselect!
I unscrewed the broken latch and screwed in the new latch.
Opened the door (front loader), unscrewed the 2 small screws holding the catch. Replaced the part and tightened the screws-DONE!
Removed old part and screwed on new part--very simple. It required an odd screwdriver bit, but we actually had what we needed--and could find it, which was more amazing...
