Door latch broken on my Whirlpool AWZ 650 dryer

The door latch is broken and I thought I would buy a new one and replace it. Is it easy to replace or will I make more damage to the dryer if I do it myself

just make this test and fix it. God bless you

1. No power to the dryer
Make sure there's power getting to the dryer. Check for a tripped circuit breaker or a blown fuse. Check the wall socket for power with a voltmeter or by plugging something else in. Sometimes the power cord disconnects or burns at the dryer, if this is the case, the wiring and the terminal block must be repaired or replaced.

2. Door switch / Door switch actuator lever
The dryer would not start with a broken door switch. Replace the door switch if found defective.

Most dryers have a door switch actuator lever - when you close a dryer door, it presses against the lever, which actuates the door switch. If the lever is broken, the switch would not activate and the dryer would not start. Replace the lever, if broken.

Note: Door switch actuator lever usually comes with the door switch assembly and it is recommended to get the whole assembly since there is almost no price difference between the door switch assembly and just the lever. Check your model for more details.

Door latch is broken


Torx 15 should do the trick. Harbor freight or home depot. Could be a torx 20 also.

Condenser dryer not getting clothes dry


There must be one or two circuit breakers, usually at the back of the dryer, check them out.

If this does not fix the problem, then possible faults are the thermistor or the heating element.

Most likely you will need to have the heating element replaced.

If you decide to call a technician you can use the phone number listed on the owner manual.

You can find parts and diagrams here.

See also this website, the also sell parts and have some schematic: What is wrong with your Dryer?
