Normally the problem is not the spring, but a broken spring mounting tab on the door latch head (hook) assembly or the inner door panel.
If it's the door panel, it's usually easier and cheaper to use epoxy and some kind of hardware to fashion a new spring mount.
The door latch head (hook) is easy to replace or repair if that's the issue.
We have *critical* safety & disassembly info at our site, linked here: http://tinyurl.com/yzjozk
We also have this full service manual at our site: http://www.microwavedisplay.com/R1480_R1481_R1482_sm.pdf
Normally you have to separate the door panels (as shown in the attached photo) and then you'll see the screws you need to remove.
We're happy to help and we appreciate your thoughtful rating of our answer.

Go to searspartsdirect.com and type in your model number. The door latch assembly can be found under the "Door and Latch Parts" heading as item number 7 (part #8181700). If you need instructions on how to replace, just follow this link:
If you do not wish to purchase parts online, use the part number provided and go to your nearest appliance parts retailer. I hope this helps you.

SOURCE: Dell laptop lid latch problem
The spring and latch are available from Dell but this is a very hard repair. I do this for a living and screen repair is always a challenge. If you want to tackle it then call Dell first to get the parts. Once the parts have arrived put the laptop on a non static mat (placemats work well). Take out the battery and do not connect the AC power. If you're lucky on your screen there should be four rubber bumpers. Peal these off and there should be a screw behind each one. Now the bezel has to be unlocked from the back. You'll need a couple of plastic pry devices. I like to use plastic bike tire irons. Once the bezel is off you'll see the catch and where the sping goes. Make sure you find that old spring, you don't want it ending up in the electronics. Now just reverse everything to put it back together. You'll need to put a little rubber cement to put on those bumpers. If you're machine doesn't have the screws you'll have to use those plastic tire irons to pry apart the screen. Be careful and don't force it.

Solved it. Found a small shank screwdriver that fitted into the opening with a little bending of the plastic frame. managed to replace it with a new one without trouble. No further help needed. dave

I appreciate your inquiry, Martha!
I understand that your Frigidaire washing machine will not lock the lid and will not operate. If the lid will not lock then your washing machine will not communicate to start the load. This however could be an issue with your lid strike, latch, or control panel. I would recommend checking to make sure there is no visible damage on the door strike or latch. This could also be an issue with the continuity of each component and in order to check that you would need to disassemble your washer. This is not a simple DIY job. I would recommend having a professional technician out to perform proper repairs. Having a technician out will prevent any unnecessary part purchases. I hope this information is helpful for you. -Matt

Thank you for your inquiry, David Castro!
I understand that your Frigidaire washer is not working after the lid piece became broken. If the lid piece is not latching properly inside of the door latch then your washer is not registering the door is closed and will not start. You may need to have that piece replaced I would recommend having any electrical component replaced by an authorized technician. I hope this is helpful. -Matt

Hello zabbster - Typically the DR or DO error code indicates that the door switch is not closed. Make sure that the door lock is completely closed. If the door is closed, make sure the door latch is not broken. If the latch is broken, you may possibly need to replace the door lock switch.
