Latch would not close with normal pressure

Shut off power to the unit. Removed the screws located along the inside edge of the door, then lifted up slightly on the entire front panel to loosen it from the slotted guides. Be ready to brace the door as there are still some electrical connections that do not need removal to finish the job. Removed two screws that hold the latch assembly in place, leaving the four electrical leads in place (this takes a special screwdriver but I had an attachment with my socket set). Removed the leads one at a time and immediately placed them on the corresponding posts on the new latch (this was to make sure I got the right lead in the right spot). Once all leads were in place, reattached the latch assembly to the inside of the door. The only tricky part was getting the door lined up with the guides and sliding it back into its seated position. That took two people, but only a few tries and it fit. Put the screws back on, turn power back on. Done.
