Washing powder door broken

The latch on the powder door does not work it is always in the open position - the latch can be pulled out of its socket. If anyone knows whether this can be fixed without a repair man please let me know. As i live in a shared house we are unlikely to call a repair man out to fix it and would like to try and fix it ourselves. Thanks, Ady

The door is usually opened by a solenoid that is actuated by the timer. Sometimes, the solenoid becomes stuck in the open position. If so, you may be able to see the opening. You can try banging on the door near the latch with something relatively soft sometimes to free it but usually the door must be disassembled to repair it if it's an electrical failure.

I have a 2002 Acura MDX and the latch is jammed or broken and the door will not click shut because the latch will not catch. Is there a way to fix it without replacing the mechanism?

Which door? Will the door close and not latch or will the door not quite close and bangs as you try to close it. Have a look inside the latch to see if the latch is in the locked position. If it is, pull on the door handel and use your finger to release the latch into the open position. If latch is in the open position, check the striker attached to the door jamb to make sure the screws have not come loose and allowing the striker to move causing the door to not properly close

How do I repair the inside drivers door latch on my 2007 VW Eos?

It sounds like you have either broken the inside door release or dropped the connecting bar to the latch. If you pull the inside handle, can you see a broken tab? Check the passenger side to see if they look the same when you pull the handle. The handle is spring loaded so it will always return back to its original position even if the connecting bar to the door latch is not connected.

Door will not open on hotpoint bwd 129 catch may be broken

Your door lock assembly needs to be replaced to open the door try the following procedure.

To open the door, get a piece of string and feed it into the door recess, work it around until both ends come out opposite the door handle.
Pull the string to the side and with your other hand pull the door open.
You will need to get a replacement lock assembly for the machine which isn't too hard to fit if you are a bit handy with tools.

We broke the door handle on our Malber 1000 Can we order a new one and can we fix it ourselves?

Mike, in Washington D.C., again. Of course you can do it yourself. First call Joel (Malber in NY) at 800-600-8913 or 516-294-6660 . Tell him which model machine you need a door latch for (if you aren't sure, check label in rear). Once you've received your new latch assy (about $20): Open door, and notice white plastic "ring" around glass is actually 2 pieces (front and rear) snapped together - with a seam around periphery. Unsnap (separate) them by either getting your fingernails into the seam and pulling them apart - or prying them open with a spackle knife or thin screwdriver blade. Once it starts coming apart, just work the opening all the way around. Remove front "ring" and set aside. Using a 1.5mm Torx screwdriver, remove 2 small screws holding broken latch assy. Note the way the ends of the spring go under the 2 screws. That's the way it has to go back. Slip new latch assy into place, pressing vertical "hinge pin" and ends of spring into slots (near screw holes). Replace 2 screws. Test latch with door open - is it working? Try closing door. All good? Replace front "ring": Open door and, while pulling out on latch handle, slip the ring over the latch handle and get it into approximate position. Let go of latch (it snaps into "closed" position) and adjust ring so it doesn't bind the latch handle (meaning it's free to move). Now, beginning anywhere on outside edge, begin snapping rings together - and continue all the way around. Test that door latch still operates smoothly and that door latches shut properly. FYI: There is no adjustment for this latch assy - it just fits precisely where it's supposed to. Good luck and God Bless ...

The latch for the door on my '92 Corsica is stuck upright preventing me from closing the door. What can I do to get it open.

You should be able to pull the handle and while holding the handle use a screwdriver to pop the latch back to a "open" position. If the latch does not release then it might be broken and stuck in that position. Just use the screw driver and insert it into the latch opening to simulate the latch hook. The try moving it back while holding the handle open. Hopefully this gets the latch back into position. You should also lubricate the latch with a small amount of white grease to keep the latch from sticking.

2002 FORD Explorer J that keeps the door shut broke

Are you sure the latch broke? sometime they can freeze up and hang unlatched. The part that latches the door to the striker is "C" shaped. If it is flipped into the latched position with the door open, it won't work. If this is the case, use a screwdriver and pry the latch to the open position while pulling the handle. But if it is broken, yes it can be replaced. Usually torx or allen screws in the end of the door. Pull the door panel off and pop the rods off before you unbolt it though!

Broken front door

you need to buy a new 'handle'. to open the door for the time being, disconnect power and then use a coat hangar to pull the latch towards you, ie. outwards
