Door catch would not latch

Well tried to find this simple part around Columbus and even maytag website no luck.Parts select had it to go and arrived earlier than expected.Fixed it less than 5 minutes works great.taken longer to put the light bulb back in,Really like the accuracy and quick response from parts select.If I had called a service tech probably would have cost $50.00 or more for a part that cost a little over $3.00 and saved this site in case I need to order other parts.Thank you

My 11 year old daughter broke the door clasp

My 11 year old daughter broke the door clasp to the dryer by repeatedly slamming it trying to get it to close. I told her to go down stairs write down the make model and serial number and come back up and find a place to buy it online. I left with instructions not to use the computer for anything else until the part was found. Less then 15 minutes later I came back because I heard giggling. She was chatting but had found an exploded view of the door and the part. She was very pleased with herself! We bought it and it arrived a few days later. I saw the empty box. She had opened it and taken it down and installed it herself. A good lesson, for her and me

Timer knob broken; could not turn on dryer. Door would not stay closed.

Pushed timer knob on - very simple. Pulled old door catch out and pushed new door catch in with needle nose pilers. Took about 5 minutes for both. Items were easy to locate on your website and shipping was fast. Thanks!!

Door would not stay closed

Repair part just snapped into place. It took longer to open the bag then do the repair. I thought it was going to be difficult to find a part for this dryer but partselect had the right part.
Thanks

Door catch broken

The old door catch broke and fell into the unit. Ordered the new part which arrived fast and snapped it into place. Perfect fit and the door now closes/latches correctly - like new again. Would recommend your web site to all do-it-yourselfers. Loved browsing your site, especially seeing all of the schematics and parts list for my unit.

Door would not stay closed because metal latch piece was gone.

I ordered the part. ( I should have ordered just in case it happens again.) When it got here it took less than a minute to snap it in.

Door wouldn't stay closed

I used a screwdriver to pry out the broken door latch and inserted the new one in the same slot. Perfect fit. The picture of the part in the order page was a big help to identify the correct part.

Install new latch

Just snapped the new plastic latch into the hole (the hole was there because in trying to extract the old latch, it fell into the inside of the door). Took two seconds. Order to arrival of the part took only 22 hours!
