The back door on my 4runner 1997 doesn't open


I'm taking a wild guess here that you are not talking about a clothes dryer.
If you are referring to a vehicle, like a Toyota 4 runner, know that the latch is activated by a series of cables or levers made of stiff metal rods. If these come apart inside the door, as they do, your pulling will not activate the latch.
Sometimes it is a problem of a broken white plastic coupler or sleeve at the joint of a rod and the handle, for example.
I also had a bad experience with a tiny broken spring on the door latch causing this.
You will need to remove the door panel to get to the inside of the door to find the problem and fix it. Since the door won't open, this will be really hard, might require you to destroy the door panel just to get it out of the way to see inside the door.
Be blessed.

Door won't stay closed. Door latch seems loose or intermittently will open enough to stop the dryer.


Hi,

Dryer doors either have a combined switch, with a mechanical lock, or these two things are separate.
Whichever type you have, your description of the latch being loose is telling.
Part of the latch has either snapped off internally, and if so, it would be the part that was under the most pressure, due to having a spring or sprund element behind it, which should 'snap' the door shut.
If it has not broken, the two (possibly 4) mount screws that mount the latch to the door fascia have come loose
and this is why the mechanism is now unreliable.
These screws are only accessible from the interior, on the reverse side of the latch, next to the drum.
Whilst very easy to tighten, only a qualified electrician or service technician should access high voltage equipment..

Whirlpool cabrio dryer keeps coding f22


This is an indication of a door latch failure and/or interconnecting wiring problem. The first step in troubleshooting the problem is to unplug the washer for AT LEAST 30 minutes in an attempt to reset the Central Control Unit (CCU). This is the main "brain" of your washing machine. Sometimes these error codes are erroneous and can be easily cleared by resetting the CCU. If the error code reappears following a CCU reset, then you have a genuine problem. In addition, if the door latch remains locked following this procedure, there is a manual release you can use to open the door. Follow these steps:

1. Remove the lower panel under the door by loosening the three screws under the bottom edge on the front of the washer. HINT: If you prop up the front feet of the washer with a 2 x 4, it makes access to the screws much easier.
2. With the screws removed, the lower panel should drop down then come off. If the panel sticks, a light tap on either side will knock it loose.
3. Reach your hand up inside the washer behind the front casing on the right-hand side. This is where the door latch assembly is located.
4. At the bottom of the door latch assembly is a small pull tab. This is the manual release for the door. Pull the tab straight down and the door will come open.

If you still have the error code displayed, inspect the door latch mechanism for any broken, loose, or missing components. Next, open the top panel of the washer by removing the three screws in the rear of the washer that hold the panel in place. With the screws removed, the panel will slide back, then off. Locate the door latch on the right hand side behind the front panel. Inspect the wiring harness from the door latch to the to CCU. The CCU is located directly behind the wash tub in the top rear of the washer. Make sure all the connectors are snug and not loose or broken. In the majority of cases, a persistent error is a failed door latch. If all these preliminary checks are unsuccessful, replace the door latch. Follow these steps:

1. Unplug washer.
2. Remove the outer portion of the door bellow. This is the gray rubber boot around the door. Feel around the edge of the door bellow where it attaches to the front of the washer. You will find a wire retaining hoop in the seam between the rubber and the front case. Follow this wire hoop to the bottom of the door bellow and you will find a tension spring. Carefully, stretch this spring apart and remove the wire hoop.
3. Pull the rubber bellow from the door facing on the front of the washer being careful not to rip or tear it. Once removed, fold the rubber backwards inside the drum so you can access behind the front panel. DO NOT remove the rubber bellow from the wash tub.
4. The door latch assembly is located behind the front panel of the washer on the right hand side. Locate and remove the three screws on the washer front that hold the door latch assembly in place. The whole assembly should come free from the washer front and be held by a plastic mounting bracket and several wire connectors.
5. Carefully remove the latch assembly from the plastic mounting bracket BEFORE attempting to unplug any wires. It makes it much easier to access if you do.
6. Unplug the wire connectors using care not to break any of the wires. You may want to write them down, but I believe they will only plug into their respective slots.
7. Remove the old door latch and install the new one in the reverse order of the steps I just presented to you. Plug the wires back in first, then place the whole assembly back into the plastic mounting bracket, and then reattach to the front of the washer.
8. Now, when you get the reinstalling the rubber door boot, you may want to get the assistance of a second pair of hands as it can be difficult sometimes to manipulate the wire retainer back into place. Carefully reattach the rubber bellow to the door facing on the front of the washer first.
9. Starting at the top of the door bellow at the 12 o'clock position begin inserting the wire hoop back into the groove. Work your way around with both hands to the 4 and 8 o'clock positions. (This is where you could use those second pair of hands). While holding a slight downward tension on the wire hoop to keep it in place, pull the tension spring apart enough to snap the remaining part of the hoop into place at the bottom. Once you've completed these steps make sure the door closes and latches properly. NEVER slam a door with an electronic latch. They can break easily.


NOTE: Another method is to access behind the front panel from the top with the top panel removed. Either method works, but I have found that going through the front offers better access.

Hi, you access the belt from the front. I can't bring up the model number you gave but I'll assume some things. A panel may be below the door, if so look for 2 latches holding it shut, a flat head screwdriver gently inserted will release the latches. If you have a solid front panel except for the door... If your lint filter is on the top, remove the filter, remove 2 screws under the filter door, lift the top and tilt it back. Now  you can see 2 hex screws, one on the right top corner and the other on the left, remove, unplug the door switch wires and lift the whole front panel off. If your lint filter is inside the door, skip the 2 screw part and pop the top panel off.
