If you are referring to the door latch mechanism on the door facing, the following link explains step-by-step how to replace one:

http://www.fixya.com/support/r3575840-replacing_a_door_latch

If you are referring to the catch on the door itself, it can also be replaced. Just remove the two Torx (T-2) screws that hold it in place and remove. Replace as necessary with a new catch. Replacement parts can be purchased at any of the following websites:

searspartsdirect.com
pcappliancerepair.com
appliancepartspros.com
repairclinic.com

All these sites are reputable and offer great service with competitive pricing, so shop and compare. The first three sites I listed also include helpful exploded view parts diagrams to assist you in locating and properly identifying the parts you need.


If the model number is correct, the part number for the door latch is 8182634. The door catch part number is 8181651. You can view these parts under the "Door and Latch Parts" heading as items 7 and 9.


If you have any questions, please post back and let me know. I hope this is helpful to you.

Door will not close


Your door may be twisted or binding. doors like this only need to be out by 2mm to stop closing, from what i have seen, this type of door in the photo tend to twist down with time due to the glass and over heavy things pulling the door hinge down. you can try gently twisting the door up a little.

that or the spring that is in the door catch is damaged and rather then holding the plate to keep the door closed, its pushing the door back out.

Whirlpool duet washer door is open. I can't close it because the latch is stuck in the "locked" position.


The first thing to try is to hold the cancel button for 15 seconds. The more labor intensive solution is this: Remove the panel beneath the door (2 or 3 screws). Reach up, there is a little "ring" beneath the door lock. Pull this down, it releases the mechanism.

It is saying there is a problem with your door Lock. when you close the door does it hold like it use too? try to open and close the door if it doesn't really close properly then you will just need a door latch. If the machine gives you an f11 code then its the main computer board that can also give your the door lock error. I would check the door first though.
