Door will not stay close


Not much data to go on here. The latch on the door has a spring that holds it down in the locked position. when you pull the handle the latch goes up and you pull the door open. You will have to take the door apart and see if the spring broke or the plastic tab that holds the end of the spring is broken.

Have a maytag dishwasher MDB6600 AWQ -latch/handle broke - bought replacement but not sure how to install - can you help


Just did this myself .Need the right star screw driver to remove 11 screws holding the door inner liner
then you can access the handle latch assembly. You pull off the 2 wire connectors to the switchs that are part of the assembly. Slip connectors onto new assembly.Position the handle part thru the door and re attach inner liner. 2 of the inner liner top screws also hold the assembly in place.Unfortunely , this didn't solve my problem of the dishwasher not turning on.

Fridge air won't start. A little piece of the plastic that's on the door broke off and now it won't start. When I close the door the light stays on


sounds like this was to one of your door microswitches and they work in series telling the unt that the door is closed and safe to operate... or the door latch assembly itself that nakes contact with the door switch is broke...going to have to pull apart and see what exactly broke... a few sites to get parts from i would recommend are
www.repairclinic.com
www.apdepot.com
www.sears.com
they usually let you type in your model number and will give you a picture of parts for that unit so you purchase the correct one..... good luck and please vote

I HAVE AMANA FRIDGE FREEZER AND THE DOOR SWITCH IS BROKEN BUT THEY NO LONGER MAKE THE PART. ITHINK I MAY BE ABLE TO USE THE MAYTAG PART


Yes, if the maytag part fits, then it may work in the Amana refrigerator. It's just a switch that carries the current for the light bulb.

I have a Affinity frigidaire front load washer and need to replace part number 131763202. The model number of the washer is ATF6000FS1 Thank you in advance


Disconnect power then open the door and remove the spring-hoop assembly that secures the door gasket. Peel off the part of the door gasket near the door lock and switch assembly. Remove the screws securing the door lock and switch assembly to the front panel then pull the door lock and switch assembly out. Transfer the wires to the new door lock and switch assembly then install into place. Put the door gasket back and secure it with the spring-hoop assembly.

Microve latch/spring assembly ... have a broken head on the latch which i can repair but cannot see where to attach other side of spring on Maytag MMV5207bas


Unfortunately, the exploded views do not show the innards of the door.

So as new latch head is not available separately, so if you cannot fix yours, a whole new door will be needed.

Normally you have to separate the door panels (as shown in the attached photo) and then you'll see the screws you need to remove.

Or you can watch a YouTube video (not a video I made) here that demonstrates how it's done.

There's probably a broken spring mounting tab on the door latch head (hook) assembly or the inner door panel.

You can use use epoxy and some kind of hardware to fashion a new spring mount.

If you have to do any gluing, make sure the parts are squeaky clean and dry before you glue them, or it will not hold up.

Good luck!

I have a Maytag Model MGR5770ADW and it appears that the left side door hinge spring is broken. How do I remove the side panel to investigate? Thanks, Ken


no need to remove the side panel, the door itself lifts off the hinges, and it will be reall obvious, if its broke, theres no servicing it just replace, and its done from the fornt, 2 screws and the hinge falls into the unit ( can grabit from pulling out lower storage drawer. part number (74011141) , might as well replace he 2 hinges one broke whos to say the right one is gonna last much longer
