My whirlpool duets door latch broke and I ordered a new one and installed it and the door will not shut completely. Why will it not shut all the way. I can hold the button that indicates that the door is shut and try and start it and the coil for thelatch is trying to do something but does not rotate the latch. any suggestions?

It sounds like you need the cabinet catch that catches the door latch.

Read through the information I provided and let me know if you have any questions. An alternate method is to remove the washer top panel and work down through the top of the washer. Access can be a problem sometimes, however. I hope this helps you.

My Whirlpool duet washer lights flash/beep


probably your door then, look at the door itself, at the latch is it broken? should form a complete square hole with four sides. if broken some part is probably inside lock asm. if complete, look at lock and determine if its in the lock position with door open, a arm will be up preventing the latch from going in. replace as necessary. Old duets (red lights) use standard lock asm same as GE and samsung. New duets (green lights) use whirlpool/new maytag unique asm. New locks come in two interchageable models, German (made in china) and Mexican, Mexican model is more troublesome, get german.
If lights flash during a cycle or other time, its giving a code, note the F code displayed

Door latch


The door latch is electro-mechanical. Which means, it has a mechanical mechanism that is electronically controlled. If the latch is broken, it is recommended that you replace it. The following link explains how:

If you require a replacement latch, they can be ordered on line at searspartsdirect.com. Just type in your model number and locate item number 7 under the "Door and Latch Parts" heading. The part number is 8181700.

I hope you find this information helpful. Let me know if you require additional assistance.

Whirlpool door pin location


No, unfortunately the door latch assy. comes as a complete unit. Part# 8182634. This # is for the entire door latch mechanism, not just the pin and lists for ~$45.00. Easy repair... open the door. At the 6 o'clock position of the door seal, begin removing the seal clamp with a small screwdriver by inserting it between the spring and the seal. Then peel the seal back (at the 3 o'clock position) to gain access to the latch assy. Remove the 3 screws holding the latch in place and pull gently out. Remove the wire harness. Install the new latch and rebuild. (make sure you position the seal clamp the same way it came off... the spring at the 6 o'clock position.) Install time= ~15 minutes. Job done! and well worth the 50 bucks!
