Door will not stay shut...........simply pops open after 10 or 15 seconds. No visible damage. No debris along the door pathway. Perhaps a new plastic latch. The old one looks fine.

You just need to replace the catch and the strike it is easy to install.

How do you repalce a door latch on a Maytag Model 512 Dryer?

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) will show you the construction of the two pieces before you begin prying.

Good Luck

The door on my tumble drier wont stay shut. The drier runs if I hold it shut. I have checked the peg and the door and cannot see anything wrong with them?

Buy a new door latch kit aprox $5.00. When you install these parts make sure the latch and the peg are lined up in the same direction
