Magnetic Door Plunger

Product Description

Magnetic Door Plunger Specifications

This magnetic door plunger, also known as the magnet holder, is built for your washer. When you order this part, you will receive the plastic housing and a spring that goes with it. The magnetic door plunger attaches to the inner door panel of the washer. It holds the door open when the washer is not running, and allows the door and tub seal to dry. This prevents mold and mildew from building up. Occasionally, the plastic tabs on the housing can break, and when this happens the part will need to be replaced. You may also notice that your washer lid or door will not close; this can also be a sign of a damaged magnetic door plunger.

Door would not close
There is a magnet at the bottom of the door which allows the door to be held ajar when the washer is not in use to allow the tub and gaskets to dry. A tab on the plastic housing which retains the magnet broke which allowed the housing to pull free of the door and stick itself to the machine preventing the door to close. Easy fix to replace the magnet was $18. Instructions were included in the box. Part number on the drawing was A165. PS3618292 Magnetic Door Plunger

Door would not close because the part that was in the door that held it closed kept falling out.
Order the part through PartsSelect. It arrived in a few days and I (an 81 year old woman) replaced it within minutes with no help needed. It was super easy.

Magnetic door plunger broke off, then got stuck inside the door and couldn't be removed for replacement.
I used another magnet to pull the old plunger out of the door and replaced it with the new part.

One Plunger latch broken off.
Line up the plunger with the existing slots in the door and push in.

NOTE: When testing it was evident that the magnet was not as strong as the original one. I would rate as one step up from useless.
