If it has the "double hook" type latch on the door,see if the hooks slide up and down.They should be spring loaded,if not,the spring attachment point inside the door may have broken off(my Sharp Carousel did this).I pryed the plastic door trim loose,and reattached the spring by using one of the slots inside to hold a metal wire clip(modified with needle-nose pliers) to hook the spring onto.Your door's design may be a little different,but a similar solution will probably be apparent after you get in there.
If the door will not stay closed it is the spring inside door, or the small plastic piece that holds the spring which is attached to the $80.00 piece called outer door.
To fix it, it is EASY and you do not have to even take the inside cover all the way off. Just remove the three sides of cover by gently slipping a plastic putty knife around rim to release the clips. Then attach the spring to the small hole below where the plastic piece used to be, which is located in the metal on the glass frame piece, use tweezers, hold the other end of spring as you place spring onto plastic door latch and set into place!
Snap the inside cover back on and YAY! FINI!
Opening the cabinet of these machines begins with the cabinet top. There are two spring catches located just below the cabinet top that secure it to the rest of the unit. These catches are located towards each side edge. Use a putty knife (or some other thin and flat object) to slide in under the cabinet top to disengage each of the clips. You can now lift up the cabinet top. With the cabinet top lifted, you will see two screws located inside the top of the cabinet front. Remove each of these screws and lift the front panel to disengage the two clips found at the bottom. As you remove the front panel, disconnect the door switch and any other wiring, taking careful note of which wires are to be reconnected where.
Yes, but check the breaker first. turn off/on to check. Remove the screws at the lint filter. remove fint filter. Use a thin putty knife at thr front between the top and door support to depress the spring clips holding the lid down, one at a time pull each side to disengage clip. Lift lid. The door switch is above the door inside under the lid. ALWAYS UNPLUG BEFORE WORKING ON ELECTRIC APPLIANCES.
First before you you raise the top, open the cover on the back by the
motor and let the belt loose from the motor pulley unless the belt has
broken. If it has go to the lid. Slide a thin flat blade under the
front of the lid and feel for the two clips several inches in from the
corners. Push straight in on a clip while pulling up on the lid at the
front edge and it will release the lid at that point. Do the other
clip. Lift the lid. Three are usually two screws, one on each side
holding the front tight. With the screws removed, pry out by each of
the push clips on the side. The front should be come loose. Swing it
away slightly paying attention to the wires to the door switch. Slide
the new belt over the drum and work it to where it ran in the past. Put
the front back on and snap the lid down. When putting the front on
guide the front panel and the drum together at the felt seal. Open the
panel on the back near the motor. Reach in and spring the belt
tightener over and put the belt around the motor pulley. Let the spring
tightener tighten the belt. Put the cover back on.
ALL service is perfromed from the FRONT. Shock Hazard Warning! Open the dryer door aand remove the screws that hold the door hinges, remove the door, and on the opposite side that have just 2 screws where the door would attach if it was converted to the oppsite opening direction, and remove the front panel. Remove the front bulkhead,(the internal drum opening panel), by removing the 4-5/16" screws that hold it to the outer side panels. Reach back to the rear of the motor and release the tension on the idler and drum belt. Remove the belt and lift drum slightly upward and remove from the unit. You should then observe 2 rollers about 3" in diameter positioned at about 5 and 7 o'clock. The roller at the 5 o'clock position is most likely bound up or not free-rolling. TRU-ARC spring clips,(you may need to purchase), retain the rollers on the shaft and need to be carefully removed and saved for reaasembly. Inspect roller at 7 o'clock for free operation. Purchase what you need and reassemble.
the top cover is fastened by spring like tabs on the machine rear. the front edge of the top merely clips to the front panel. the top needs to be removed to gain access to the bolts that hold the front panel on. these are inside the top corners of the machine. once these are out, the front cover should just pull up to remove. there may be a light connection and the door switch wires here too. then you can get to the screws that hold the baffles in place.
