Yes, it may be as simple as a broken clip where the door opens & closes

How do I know the door switch is bad


If light stays on when fully closed, door switch needs replacement, easily removed. Short term fix, disconnect the switch and tape the two spades together. Warning! Dryer will run even with door open.

Kenmore dryer doesn't recognize when the door is closed.


first try unpluging the dryer for 5 minutes and then check it,this resets the computer board just like your house computer or you could have a bad door switch or something wrong with the main board,the main board is alot more than the door switch,if you have a meter you can read out the door switch,there should be a tech sheet in the dryer maybe taped to the side wall behind the bottom panel that might help you out.

Whirlpool Front Loader Dryer Door will NOT stay closed


I have the same issue with the door popping open. If you push hard on the bottom of the door then it snaps in. I think the bottom latch is broken or misalligned.

Lights stay on constantly even when not running; does not run aft


That clip is necessary as it tells the dryer when the door is open and when the door is closed. you will have to get a new door switch.

Dryer won't start; light stays on whether door is open or closed.


Sounds like the door switch is not functioning or shorted......in other words the dryer thinks the door is open so it won't turn on.

Door won't latch, interior light stays on, dryer will not start


it appears that someone bent the door or the hinge. that is my first guess.

Door won't fully latch, light stays on, dryer won't function


There is typically a small plastic piece that catches the door and keeps it latched. The door has the male side and the frame of the dryer has the female side.

Either the male part on the door has broken off (or bent) or the the female part on the frame has broken. Replace this part and you'll be back in business. It is typically called a door latch and it comes with both the male and female parts.

Here is a picture
of a typical one.

Dryer will not start after bulb burned out.


moch, the fact that the light is staying on when the door is closed leads me to believe that the door switch is the culprit. If that switch is not made you will not start. See if the pin is broken off. Start there and let me know. Catriver.
