SOURCE: GE front load washer WSXH208v1ww door latch

Unfortunately, the "door latch assembly" is what you would need. It comes with a new concrete front tub counter weight which is redesigned to not be able to contact the door latch switch on out of balance spins. It is also a lot of work to replace. (you can not get just the little plastic part) Please don't rate this solution, as anything but a Fix-Ya lowers my score, and I know you don't want to shoot the messenger.

Okay, here ya go. This link should give you the step-by-step instructions you need:

http://www.fixya.com/support/r587965-door_latch_replacement_fdl_error

I hope this helps you resolve the problem you may have. If you have questions along the way, or require further assistance please let me know.

As far as begin able to determine a visible flaw with the latch, the only part that you can check (that I know of) is the latching mechanism inside the slot in the door. The rest of the latch assembly is a sealed component, like an electronic module. There are a few connectors attached to it that you can check to see if they are making proper contact. You can access the rear of the latch by removing the to panel of the washer. Take the panel off by removing the three screws that hold the panel in place in the rear of the washer. With the screws removed, the panel will slide back, then off. You should be able to see the connector by looking down behind the front panel on the right hand side. You can also use this as an alternate method of replacing the latch if you like.

Let me know if you have further questions.

Why won't the door latch?


Make sure the door is not hitting the sides of your cabinet. Also make sure it is not hitting the screws that hold the mounting tabs (located at the top of your dishwasher) to your counter-top. If that's okay, try removing the racks and see if the door will close then. If still no, then you might have a broken latch or bent or broken hinges.

I have a kenmore upright freezer model 970-254326 bought in 2011 from sears. The door opens left to right but in my tiny apartment I NEED it to open from right to left just to put things in and get th


You should see some plastic plugs or holes for mounting bolts on the opposite side of the freezer case. The latch mechanism should adapt from one side to another.
You would remove the top hinge and then lift the door off of the bottom hinge. Then you would remove the bottom hinge and switch it to the other side. Place the door onto the bottom hinge and then install the top hinge on the other corner of the case to match.
You should be able to move the handle from one side to the other. The magnets in the doorseal should work as before to keep the door closed. The interior light is usually centered on the bottom to aid in reversing the door opening.

either the hinges have gotten bent from too much weight being put onto the door when it was open or your door latch might be broken, see if the white plastic door closer on the top inside of the door catches onto the gold colored latch that is at the top part of the dryer door opening, if either one of these are damaged you would replace both as they come as a kit. here is a parts listing:

Kenmore HE2T front loading automatic washer...model 110.4756,4757..displaying F22 error message? What does that mean and how do I fix it?


"F22" is a door latch error. It can mean any of the following:

1. The door latch mechanism is broken. Inspect the door latch to ensure it is intact and not broken. Verify the electrical connections are making good contact.

2. The door latch hook (located on the door) is broken or worn. If the latch hook is damaged, it may not allow the door latch to engage and lock properly.

3. The interconnecting wiring between the Central Control Unit (CCU) and the door latch are loose, broken, or not making good contact. The CCU is the main computer for the washer. You will need to remove the top panel of the washer in order to access. Simply remove the retaining screws located in the back of the washer and the panel will slide back, then lift off.

4. Defective CCU. The CCU controls nearly all the functions of the washer, including the door latch. If the CCU fails, the proper lock/unlock signals do not get sent to the latch mechanism.

Determing how to troubleshoot the CCU and Door Latch is in the technical data sheet included with your washer. The tech sheet is located behind the lower toe panel directly below the door. If the tech sheet isn't behind the toe panel, it will be affixed to one of the interior cabinet walls. I do not have the procedure memorized, but there are some tests you can try to determine if the problem is the CCU or latch.

If you determine the latch needs replaced, the following link may assist you:

http://www.fixya.com/support/r587965-door_latch_replacement_fdl_error

The procedures I provided are for Kenmore Elite series front loaders, which are the larger cousing to the HE2. The steps are nearly the same except for how to remove the door gasket from the front facing of the washer. The HE2 models are glued on instead of using a wire hoop (unless yours is a later model and has been modified). You can use a metal putty knife to carefully peel the gasket loose and reseal it when completed. A good appliance gasket cement (found at any appliance parts retailer) will work. You can also use a plumber's sealant. Just make sure you use a pliable rubber cement. Do not use super glue.

Some prefer to try to work through the top of the washer and avoid removing the gasket. This may be possible with the larger top loaders, but the smaller models are usually a bit more difficult to access.

Replacement parts can be purchased on line at any of the following websites:

searspartsdirect.com
appliancepartspros.com
pcappliancerepair.com
repairclinic.com

If you have any questions, please let me know. I hope you find this information helpful.
