Question about Whirlpool GEW9250 Electric Dryer
Ever since this dryer was brand new (5 1/2 years), the door has popped open. I had a warranty call on it and the service man told me that I just had to push in on the top and bottom, where the connectors are, to keep it closed. That worked for a while, now as the dryer is aging, there is nothing that keeps the door from popping open. I figure I need to replace some of the latch parts, but which ones?
The one on the panel, but sometimes they sell you the whole kit. mind as well replace both

the problem is the door latch have a look and see if the door pin (plastic) still has both prongs they should look the same from side to side if they are then the tension wires in the doors clamp have come apart. if one side of the door pin has snapped off (most common problem from slamming door closed) replace the door pin
hope this helps

I have the same issue with the door popping open. If you push hard on the bottom of the door then it snaps in. I think the bottom latch is broken or misalligned.
