The door catch broke and the door would not close.
First, I had to remove 2 screws to take off the 2 broken pieces of the door catch. Then I put the new one on using the same 2 screws. The door is now able to close, but does not lock properly. In order to make it work, I put a thin piece of rubber into the place where the door meets the machine. This causes the lock to engage and the machine to work. I don't know how much longer it will work since the repairman claims that the main bearing is going, but hopefully it will last a bit longer.

Part Select got the part to me in one day using the standard shipping, which was impressive. I just wish that I hadn't wasted money on calling a repairman only to have him tell me that he didn't have the part. He charged for the visit anyway even though I told him ahead of time the problem and the model of my machine.

Door latch on front-loading washing machine cracked/broke
The part arrived in record time but, the hardest part of the job was removing the existing screws. Finally had to resort to pulling out the drill and using it with a screwdriver bit to power out the existing screws. Replacing the part itself was super easy. Plus, had to use the drill to even put back in the existing screws. Have to admit, if it ever breaks again (9 years old now) I am worried about getting those screws out/in without stripping something.

Door latch broke and I thought this is it, I'm going to have an expensive repair bill or have to get another washer. Then I had a brain fart, that maybe I could fix it myself. So, I went online, found Parts Select, easily fournd the part and got it two days later.
I removed the broken latch and kept the two screws and used them to install the new latch. I held my breath when I started the washer, but it ran just like it was supposed. Not bad for a 12year old washer and a 64 year old female owner. And kudos to Frigidaire for making such a good product. And parts select for making it easy to fix.

The door catch caused a loud buzzer or would not allow the washer to run.
We have not yet installed the part, as we epoxied the old part back together.
However, the part provided was a perfect match, so as soon as it falls apart again we are installing this new part.
Even if it is 2:00 a.m. and insomnia has me doing laundry, I am set! Thanks for the super fast delivery.

The door catch broke. Front loading washer door wouldn't close.
It was easy to replace. Two screws hold in the part. I wrote down the model and serial number of the washing machine. I went on the website, and within a couple seconds I looked at the diagram and found the part that I needed. I paid for regular shipping and the part came very quickly. It was painless.

Door catch broke into several pieces and wouldn't latch
First I removed the two screws holding the door latch in place. I removed the broken door latch, cleaned the surface behind it and reinstalled the replacement door latch with the same two screws I originally removed from the door. Before completing the process I also examined the door to the front loading washing machine and noted the hinge and screws were loose. I tightened the hinge screws and closed the door. It worked great!

Door would not close
I bought a used front loading washer from a nice lady. These are very expensive new. All it needed was a new part that keeps the door closed during the cycle.

Door latch was broken plus 2 knobs
I removed 2 screws and put the new latch in. Put 2 knobs on. This save me almost $50 in parts and $120 in labor that the service man was going to charge. I received the parts in 2 days and the service man wasn't going to return for over a week leaving my washer out of service. What a difference! You service was great!

The original plastic door catch was broken
I removed the 2 screws holding the broken door catch in place, and attached the new door catch with them. The repair could not have been easier, and now the door works great.

Also, I ordered the part, and it arrived via FedEx the next day. That greatly exceeded my expectations!
