Door Latch Kit
PartSelect Number PS475419
Manufacturer Part Number 5366021400
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.

Door Strike
PartSelect Number PS455020
Manufacturer Part Number 5303207102
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.
