You just get the old part out and snap in the new part. No need to take the panel off.

Door latch won't work


Many dryers have different door latches. not sure what you have.
Check by the latch function and look for broken plastic catches.
Sometimes if you were rough on the door itself, the hinges bend a bit and now the 'Catch ' doesn't align properly

Door will not stay shut...........simply pops open after 10 or 15 seconds. No visible damage. No debris along the door pathway. Perhaps a new plastic latch. The old one looks fine.


You just need to replace the catch and the strike it is easy to install.

I have ordered a door latch assembly for my cabrio dryer wed6400S. How do I install that latch? Do I take the door apart by unscrewing or just pull that latch out. It is broken and just wiggles. Thanks

The door pops open after about 10 seconds. We have replaced the sensor that is located on the upper left inside of the door, to no avail. Any ideas? Also, I am not sure if this is the model #..


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:

Dryer door won't stay shut latch won't catch


If this specific dryer has the door that opens forward (top to bottom as opposed to left to right, etc...) the common problem is that downward pressure on the door has bent it slightly. This happened on mine when one of my daughters would lean on the door while loading and/or unloading the dryer. If this is the case, then the door may pop open while running even though the latch looks good.

The best way to tell is just let the door rest naturally in the closed position. If it does not rest all the way closed, then the lower portion of the door & frame has been slightly bent as indicated above.

The door & frame has to be slightly bent/forced back out at the bottom. This can be accomplished with a large screwdriver or something similar such as a paint mixing paddle or basically anything that will fit between the bottom of the door (from the inside) and the dryer frame. Very slowly close the door with the paint paddle or large screw driver in place (again on the inside...not from the outside of the door). The goal is to just barely force the bottom of the door framing back out without warping it grossly.

Just take your time and be as gentle as possible & make small adjustments until the door will remain closed and latched.

The latch is really only required to keep the door secure while clothes are beating against the door interior. Proper alignment actually keeps the door closed.

Let me know if this helps.

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!

Everthing works fine except the door pops open and dryer shuts off early.its like the dryer is is saying its done when its not


It sounds like a weak or bad door latch. When objects inside the dryer strike the door it may be causing the door to pop open as you describe.

Check the latch pin (the part on the door) and see if it's bent or compressed. If so you may be able to open the prongs with a small screwdriver, but be careful. Also check the companion catch on the dryer and see if there is any damage and that both halves are still there.

Failing all of this, replace the latch assembly.

Door won't fully latch, light stays on, dryer won't function


There is typically a small plastic piece that catches the door and keeps it latched. The door has the male side and the frame of the dryer has the female side.

Either the male part on the door has broken off (or bent) or the the female part on the frame has broken. Replace this part and you'll be back in business. It is typically called a door latch and it comes with both the male and female parts.

Here is a picture
of a typical one.

You should not need to remove tho outer casing, usually the latch is screwed straight to the door, I see if I can find the replacement,
which is your model?
