Hi. I'm looking for the part that the door latch inserts into. It looks like two small rectangular pieces, one is open and the other has rollers? I've looked at your online manual and can't find it. Can I send a photo? Thanks, Alex

Is door latch part # AP2577973 131279001 interchangeable with # AP3580441 131763310? Suggestions for getting out the screws which hold this part in place? They seem to be really tight. Thanks.

I ordered the door latch and it arrived promptly, however, when I tried to remove the old door latch, none of the tools I had worked. I tried Phillips head and flat head screwdrivers, but nothing worked. The screws would not budge. What do I need to remove and replace the door latch? An Allen wrench? A screwdriver? What size? Thanks in advance for your help.

Latest Questions

I have a Frigidaire frontload washer which stops during the spin cycle. It will continue the cycle if I lean on the door (an impractical option). The door lock indicator light is on but the door opens freely. I am not sure whether to replace the latch, locking assembly or something else. Any suggestions?

I had a broken latch and replaced it with AP2577973. The door lock light goes on now but I have to put extra pressure on the door for the washer to spin etc. Does this indicate bad lock assembly or bad door alignment?
