My door lock mechanism no longer works. I have found that the part was redesigned and the new part number is 131763202. I have purchased the new latch but my old striker does not work with it. Per my research, the new striker should be part number 131279001. However, in the pictures I have found, it appears to be the same as my original part (131279000). Can you confirm what striker part number matches latch 131763202 and will it work with my washer (Frididaire FWT449GFS1)? Thanks.
ANSWER Matt, with the new door lock 131763202 you will also need a new strike 131763310 and new harness 131882400. Thanks!
