Door Catch Kit
Fix Number FIX334230
Manufacturer Part Number 279570This kit includes two door strikes, and three door catches, to service doors that have one or two catches. The strike is mounted on the body of the dryer, while the catch is mounted on the dryer door. These two parts work together to keep the dryer door shut while in operation. If your appliances lid will not close, or it will not start, it may be time to replace the door catch. If this part is malfunctioning, it should be replaced immediately, as it is not safe to run a dryer with the door not properly closed. This kit also comes with a set of instructions to help with the repair.

Dryer Door Handle - White
Fix Number FIX11731583
Manufacturer Part Number W10861225Sourced directly from the manufacturer, this OEM approved replacement handle is approximately 6 inches long, 2 inches wide, and is made of durable white plastic. This handle is used to open the dryer door. If your handle is missing, cracked, or damaged in anyway, it needs to be replaced. This is a common repair due to the constant use and the materials weakening over time. No tools are needed for installation, it simply snaps into place. Each Handle is sold individually.
Fix Number FIX11748369
Manufacturer Part Number WPW10111905The door catch is a metal piece found on the inside dryer door, which helps to keep the door closed. If the catch is broken the door may not stay securely shut, which can result in the dryer not starting. The door catch would be considered the female part, and the door strike would be the male part (which is sold separately and not as a kit). Replacing the broken catch is an easy repair. Use a putty knife to pop out the top and bottom of the catch, then pull out the entire part from the door. Slide the new part into the opening, and firmly press to latch it into place. You are done! This is a genuine OEM part, which ensures it will be the proper fit for your appliance.
