Found an easy way to remove and replace the female dryer door catch;
use a small nail set to compress (lightly hammer it closed) the catch's top release stop (a small tab cut from the sheet metal housing )push the catch back in -push up the bottom of the catch housing to allow the catch stop to slide past the bottom of the catch hole; the top stop is now not inpeding the top of the catch housing so the entire catch easily pulls out . Take the new catch hand compress the top and bottom lips of the catch and slide it in. Done!
ANSWER Thanks Tom!!
