Very difficult to explain with out pictures, the pin should go through the spring it really is a matter of fiddling until you get it right or go back to where you bought it from and ask them how it goes.

My door for a hotpoint ctd40 tumble drier wont stay closed. The spring latch seems ok but not holding dooe closed. Any ideas since it dont say anything in my manual about it and its 2 yrs old. cheers andy

Hi andy.

the fault is likely to be in the roller catch mechanism. Hotpoint have modified these. Part Number is C00257618.

It includes both door latch and catch.

Unscrew all screws that hold the 2 halves of the door together, then with a screwdriver or similar, prize apart the 2 halves of the door, be careful the door glass does not fall onto the floor.
Fit new parts, reassemble door, and hey presto!!!

I agree read "broken door catch" solution and be particularly careful in respect of the edges of the stailess steel panels - some of the edges are hidden and they are very sharp.
