The door catch on your dryer is an important part as it keeps your dryer door closed, in order to ensure no air or clothes can escape. This part works by holding the door strike, which allows the door to stay secure. Before you begin this repair make sure to disconnect the power supply to the dryer. The tools you will need for this installation include a Phillips screwdriver and a small flat blade screwdriver. A pair of pliers may also come in handy. Users ranked this repair as easy, and say that it will take fifteen minutes or less to complete.
This part works with the following brands: Frigidaire, Gibson, Kelvinator, Kenmore, Tappan & White-Westinghouse.
This part fixes the following symptoms:
The door strike is attached to the door of your dryer and holds the door closed. If your dryer door is not closing, this might be due to the door strike needing to be replaced. This is a simple repair that should only take a few minutes to complete. The package contains one strike. Open the dryer door, and use a flat head screw driver to snap the old strike out if it has not fallen out already. Simply push the gasket out of the way, squeeze together the strike and place inside of the opening. Wiggle to ensure it is set in place properly.
The door latch is designed to keep your dryer door closed, even during the drying cycle. If your dryer door will not stay closed, the drying cycle might not start, or it could stop suddenly. If you notice this is happening, check the latch itself for any physical damage. If you notice that it is damaged, the latch should be replaced straight away. This genuine OEM part is compatible with different brands and models, so check to make sure it will properly fit yours before ordering. This door latch kit comes with both the strike and the catch. We suggest replacing both parts of the door latch at the same time.

I removed the broken door latch & strike with pliers. Then I pushed the new parts into place
I took the new latch out of the package and snapped it into place. It took about 15 seconds, and that included the walk to the laundry room!
. Supper easy I can't beleive it was over $20 for a little peice of plastic!!!
First I removed two screws holding a bracket that keeps the two ignition coils in place and removed the wires to the two coils. I replaced the old coils with the new coils, re-attached the wires and re-secured the bracket. I also replace the door catch simply using a flat head screw driver to remove the broken catch and pushed in the new catch. The Lint Screen is a simple replacement requiring no tools.
Dryer door would not close, part had broke and fallen in. Once part was received it took less than an minute to put the new one in and I was back in business.thanks for making it easy to find the part needed. and the delivery was fast!bonnie J.
the catch on the door was worn and cracked.... so I noticed it could be easily popped out with a screw driver and when the new part came in the mail 2 days later, it was just as easy to pop back in with no tools required. Now the door stays shut really good!!!
All I did was push the new part into the machine! So easy!
So easy! I ordered the part on the website. Received it 24 hours later. And popped it in place. Good as new.
