Door catch has broken off my Siemens Siwatherm 6100

HI, I have a Siemens Siwatherm 6100 and the door catch has broken off. When it is off, the dryer will not start. Or I can jam it in the gap, to make the dryer work, but the door then blows open. What part or person do I need? thanks.

    I say this alot, but go to and enter your model number and search for the part. They have drawings with callout numbers and pictures of the part itself. I've used them several times and shipping is very fast. Hope you find it. Be sure to look under Bosch. They are the company that actually makes the Siemens dryers. Good luck.

Door will not lock light stays on

Usually this is caused by the door being bent, the hinges being bent, or a worn out door strike/catch not holding the door tightly closed. Lol, got kids?? Mommy's little helpers love to lean on the doors(the ones that open/close vertically). Also, slamming the dryer door can break the little plastic arm attached to the door switch--I see MANY switches with the arms broken in-half or the strikes/catches damaged from slamming. Usually a relatively simple repair to replace the strike/catch.

Open door siemens siwatherm c7

The door consists of "the door itself", which is what you see from the inside, and a "front cover", which is what you see when looking at the door from the outside. The front cover is just snapped onto the door and comes off easily if you start pulling its top edge. You may have to assist with a screw driver to separate the edge of the cover from the door - but carefully so you don't damage the cover. But basically you just have to pull cover off with your bare fingers.
Hook replacement is then done in 2 minutes, but takes a special screw driver bit. Then snap cover on again.

How Do I Access Door Catch Inside Machine Body

Hi Steve

Having taken off the top and runners you will need to take off the front control panel then the main front of the machine.
There are two screws on the top, two on the bottom and four on the front (one may be hidden behind the appliance sticker.
There then should be enough room to access the couping without removing the door.
Give it a play first as it probably will just need resetting and you will save yourself a tenner on a new part.
Good luck

Door catch model CTDoo

With most dryers, you should have the ability to reverse the door so it opens the opposite way. Will this work for you, or is the tab broken off of the door?

Broken door handle Indesit dishwasher DG 6100

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.
