SOURCE: Maytag drum baffle came loose and catches clostes when drying

I had the same problem and just fixed it. First, open the door and remove four screws, two are holding the door on and the other two are in the same place on the opposite side. Lift the door up and pull it out to remove it. Set it aside. Pull the front panel down. Admire all of the **** that has collected inside the dryer. Next, there are two dark colored metal clips holding the top down on the upper right and left. Remove the hex head screws holding these on. Wiggle them to release them and take them out. Now the lid will lift to reach the screws holding the fins on. Tighten as necessary. Now would be a good time to get the shopvac and clean the lint and junk out of the dryer. Reverse the process to put it back together. Problem solved!

The error code "dl" is for door lock. From what I've read, it may mean you need to replace the latch assembly.

Ok.Agreed,latch is not cracked or worn out.But check the grip of latch.Open the door.The hold the latch in your hand and see,if its loose or tight.It should be tight.Press the latch towards down and move it left/right slowly --- slowly.And inspect the latch.It will move,there will be a moment but the position of the latch in the door frame should be tight.If you feel that latch is got very loose,then the door frame needs to be disassembled and latch assembly has to be repositioned and fitted.In most of the cases this latch breaks/cracks and it needs replacement.But in your case,its different,you mentioned that if you keep your oven door pressed then latch remains closed..So if latch is broken/cracked it will not get closed properly.So as per that i think,you will have to check the opposite side of the door frame,where this latch gets into.On that side,there is a interlock type part.Which holds this latch.That part is operated by spring.If in-case that interlock type part or the spring,any of this is got loose then latch will get released after few minutes.--------------- But first as regular troubleshooting,you inspect the latch.Do you feel its loose or getting very easily moved,then open the door frame and check the latch.----------- For that you will required door disassembly diagram:--- Click the link,see part number 3 is door latch.-------- -------------- If the latch is properly positioned and intact then ,you will need to disassemble the opposite side cabinet to check the internal part,which hold the latch.For that you will require complete disassembly:---Click this link for complete disassembly:-- -------------- The door latch itself or other parts holding the door latch,none of the part is costly then $10.The cost of part is under $10.---------It just require you to figure out,either is cracked /broken part or just loose misaligned part.-------- This will help.Thanks.Helpmech.

Samsung microwave door popped open and now won't close. What happened?

The spring attachment to the moving latch has broken off either replace the latch or drill a small hole in the latch body and attach some heavy steel wire to make a new attach point for the spring. the inside trim easily pops off and the latch just slides off.

Keeps saying a door is ajar when it is not. It acts as if it has a loose wire but it does everything whether its moving or not. Inside light blinks, the chime goes off and it flickers between door ajar and...

I would bet you have a bad door switch. The switch is attached to the door latch (the part that holds the door closed. The hard way to figure out what is gong on is to, one at a time, remove the door panels, unplug the switch, and see if the problem goes away. The easy way is to scan the GEM/body module and watch door data. The door that says open when it is closed is the door to concentrate on.

You can also try spraying penetratinglube into the door latch area. Sometimes this will loosen up a stuck switch. Open and close the door several times after spraying.

Whirlpool duet we broke the catch that holds door closed on washe

If you are referring to the door latch mechanism on the door facing, the following link explains step-by-step how to replace one:

If you are referring to the catch on the door itself, it can also be replaced. Just remove the two Torx (T-2) screws that hold it in place and remove. Replace as necessary with a new catch. Replacement parts can be purchased at any of the following websites:

All these sites are reputable and offer great service with competitive pricing, so shop and compare. The first three sites I listed also include helpful exploded view parts diagrams to assist you in locating and properly identifying the parts you need.

If the model number is correct, the part number for the door latch is 8182634. The door catch part number is 8181651. You can view these parts under the "Door and Latch Parts" heading as items 7 and 9.

If you have any questions, please post back and let me know. I hope this is helpful to you.

I close washer door but it wont go through cycle

Check to see if one of the two tabs on the door latch assembly are broken. If one is broken, replace the door latch. If the door latch is ok, you might have to replace the door switch and the door latch. To replace the door switch you have to remove the front panel. Remove the two screws holding the door switch assembly in place and drop the door switch assembly down into the bottom of the washer. Remove the wires and transfer to the new switch. Reach up and line up the new switch and install the two screws. Remove the two screws on the door latch assembly on the door, and remove old door latch. Install the new latch and replace the front panel. I hope this helps.
