How do I even begin with this repair? I need to install the new door catch and remove the broken one.
Hello Marwa, you need to remove the door from your unit and disassemble it. However, take note of how you disassemble it for reassembly. To access the dryer door catch WPW10111905 you will need to remove the inner door panel from the door frame. Best of luck with this repair.

The door on my dryer was not staying closed so I replaced both the dryer door catches and it went smoothly but the door is still opening. Whats the most common solution here?
Hello David, thanks for your question. If the door springs WP3387565 are not functioning properly or are not in place, this will cause issues with your door. We recommend that you remove the dryer's toe plate and check to see if the door springs are installed properly. I hope this helps.

Is there any type of way to bypass the door to turn on the dryer
For model number Wed8500bwd
Hi David, thank you for your question. No unfortunately. You should not use your appliance without a working door switch as that door switch makes sure that your appliance does not run if there is something wrong. Good luck with your repair.

I need to order the door catcher. In looking at your video, my husband tried to remove the one on the left (not in use) but it is not as easy as you showed. The bottom part came out very easy, but the top did not want to come out. I need to order this part but want to make sure it will work with my dryer. Thank you.

Dryer door catch broken
After a few years of slamming the dryer door (at least that is what my husband says), the catch on the dryer door broke. Using pliers (I used needle nose) squeeze the outer edges of the catch together (vertically). With it compressed, it should slide out easily. My husband had jacked with ours prior to the repair, so the broken piece in the door was actually sideways and would not fit through the hole. Using a screwdriver, I pushed that piece into the door (it lives in the door somewhere now). I was then able to slide out the rest of the old catch. Compress the new catch and insert it into the hole in the door. Push it in until it clicks into place. DONE! Happy Drying!

Dryer door wouldn't 'latch' closed.
took off about 8 screws, opened door into it's front & back parts, popped out the old/broken door catches and re-inserted replacements. Only 1 is needed, but this is the 2nd one to break. The first time a repairman switch the un-used from right side to left. (there are 2 so the door can be hung left or right opening)

Door latch wouldn't latch
Like another reviewer's repair story, I decided to take the door apart. It was too difficult, at least for me, to get the faulty catch out without damaging either the the door or my hands. This is why I give it an "easy" rather than "very easy" rating and put the total repair time at a half hour or better. I also decided I wanted a second person to help - not with getting the door apart or putting it back together, but because a second pair arms was very helpful in rehanging the door well. We removed the door (four screws), marking which side of the hinge needed to be flush with the actual dryer when rehanging. Then we took the door apart, which comprises another sixteen screws (four on each edge). We used an electric drill but I'm sure it could be done manually. We used needle nosed pliers to get the faulty latch out of that side of the door, then replaced it with the "back up" from the other side. Then we put the door back together and carefully rehung it. Done. We did decide that, in future, all kids (we have three boys) slamming the door would be severely beaten. Pushing the door until it's against the dryer, then PUSHING (as opposed to slamming) the latch ONTO the catch pin on the dryer is obviously what was intended. However, I've learned not to count on my boys being particularly conscientious, so I'd ordered four replacement latches to keep on hand. This machine was delivered in April 2009 and I replaced the latch in April 2011. Based on this and our laundering habits, I'm sure the others will be used long before the dryer calls it quits.

Broken door latch
Followed video instructions using flat scraper & pliers (easy).Tried to remove "SPARE" latch on other side of door. Even removed door myself (Easy).Tried for (45) minutes without success. Ordered part @ 11:30 pm. Replaced door easily by myself by leaving bottom screw for each hinge in place & replaced broken latch. Received new latch in (5) days. Removed broken latch without tools & replaced new latch in (15) seconds. Need help from any "Ladies" who can remove second latch so it is available for next replacement. This "Engineer" was too lazy to remove the screws around the door because he was going to "Follow the Video". Overall it was an "Easy Fix". Keep the 'Videos"coming.
