WFW9200SQ00 Whirlpool washing machine. Door strike doesn't go in the latch, seems a mechanical issue. There is a little white pin inside the latch on the way. Any ideas what can be wrong?


Hello,

Does the door strike seem to be broken and is that what you see inside of the latch asm.? if no the strike is ok i suspect the latch itself has broken apart and your seeing a internal part of it through the opening where the strike fits into, in which case the latch/lock assambly would need to be replaced.

The part numbers are

DOOR LATCH ASM. 8183270

DOOR STRIKE W10217552

Whirlpool Duet front load washer won't start


The error codes it is showing don't even exist. Does the little round door latch plunger go in and out if you push it?If not, then replace the door latch. If so, you most likely have a bad machine control. Please contact me if you need further help or leave feedback if appropriate as that is how I get paid. Thanks for letting me help you!

Whirlpool duet washing machine dooe handles


as you say the door sticks ,
so the handle is not the issue ,
your latch is ,
either it is not lubed or out of line .or has some plastic damage inside it,
it should only take a few ounces of pull ,
use your pinkie and only a small strain and its open.
any more and you have your issue .
its the latch.
unless its rubbing around the other plastic panel parts nothing should touch.
