Should I replace the latch?


Inspect the latch very carefully. It may be bent (door side) and wont insert properly (dryer side). You can replace it if need.. Search on YouTube for some videos on removal.

How do i open the hood manually the latch is broken. i have a black covered cable wire and the silver part of the wire is showing. i pull the latch nothing happens to release the hood


OK, if the cable is the part that broke AND it broke at the handle, then you can use a pliers or vise grip to grab the end and pull on it to pop the hood, if it broke somewhere inside the cable, then you will need some needle nosed pliers to reach under the hood and grab it there. if it broke off at the hood latch itself, then you will need to get/ make a hook or pushing rod to engage the mechanism directly to release the latch and then replace the cable the latch looks like this:

Hi my creda t522vw dryer door won't close


Hi,

This has happened on some of the front load commercial dryers in one of my building. The door alignment pin that mates with the latch was not meeting in the center of the latch. On one of the dryers the latch pin broke, I replaced the pin and thought I had fixed the problem. After a second parts search and realizing how much work it would be to open the front of the dryer to replace the hinge, I opened the door just enough to clear the housing and lifted up on the latch end of the door to try to bend the hinges back up. I had to pull up with more force than expected, but the door alignment was better and the latch mated properly. I then got out my RED Sharpie and wrote on the top of the, "PLEASE DON'T LEAN ON THE DOOR" The problem has not returned.

I hope this was helpful.

Trying to help here. There was probably a switch latch at the place were you push your button to open it. When they pulled the latch it broke the contact signal plate. Now the dryer doesn't know when the door is closed. So it want start.
