Replaced heating element with part 61927 and it worked fine. Then I tried to reverse the door and found it could not be reversed. The door latch broke but I can hold it closed and dryer starts. The door used to open 1/2 way and now it opens all the way,so I must have installed it wrong,would that stop it from heating

ANSWER Bruce, It sounds like you installed the door properly, to be honest, As long as the door shuts and the motor starts and runs, it should heat, unless there's an issue with a thermostat, or wire, you may want to recheck the connections and check the thermosat for a "closed" circuit with a meter. As for the door catch LA-1003, that should be a breeze for you. here's some meter usage info if you need it, [http://forum.appliancepartspros.com/oven-repair-including-ranges-cooktops/4810-how-check-continuity-ohmmeter.html] Thanks
