You should be able to pry out both the male and female piece with a thin blade screwdriver or putty knife. Don't worry if you break either piece. You should end up with two holes. one in door and one in front panel. Buy kit and pop in both new pieces.

You may want to buy the kit first (part number 306436)...it will show you the construction of the two pieces before you begin prying.

Good Luck

Dryer wont start


You need to have someone check it.

It could be anything from the switch on the door latch to a bad timer...

Electric dryer not get heat


Inspect the front door lock if "F22" is displayed. Press the "Pause/Cancel" button two times. Close the washer door firmly to latch the door. Remove clothing preventing the door from closing and latching. Press the "Power" button, followed by the "Start" button.

I have a Maytag dryer (Model MDE2600)and the buzzer will not go off unless the door is opened. Buzzer begins when door is closed.


Hi

Buzzer comes on because the control senses that the door is not closed and won't start the cycle. This issue is caused by door switch-latch assembly (part#6 and part#9 in this diagram) that is bad and should be replaced. Hope this helps...please post back for further assistance.

MAytag dryer will not run. Has Power but will not start. No sensing light.


Was your dryer taking a long time to dry clothes? If so you should first check your vent and then suspect your dryer thermal cutoff.
Or,
this problem could be your door latch switch. Is your door more difficult to open, OR, sometimes pops open / or opens really easy? Then your door latch switch could be bad.

Dryer stops in the middle of cycle


The door latch has failed, that's why your dryer stops. When the door opens it stops the drum and turns off. Fix the latch.
