How would I replace the female end of the door strike W10111905 on the dryer door. Do I have to take the door apart, or does it snap out and new one snap in? Thank you, Palo
Answer Hello Palo,
The dryer door has to be taken apart to replace the door catch W10111905.
How would I replace the door striker female piece part number w10111905 on the dryer door?
Answer Hello Palo. You will need to remove the screw securing the latch to the door. Then lift up on the botton of the plate and slide off the door panel. Insert leg into the slot on the door panel of the new latch and reinstall the screw into the unit.
The strike came off the front of the dryer & the hole is stripped out, so we cannot screw the strike back into the front of the dryer. Is there a part made to fill the hole in the front of the dryer to screw the strike back into place?
Answer Sue, Sorry, but no. The proper repair would be to replace the panel assembly. You could go to a local hardware store or home improvement center, take the strike with you for sizing, and purchase a "tinnerman" speed nut, and use it to attach the strike to the front panel from the inside. It should last a while, and keep you going if you do it right. Thanks and Good Luck
How difficult is to replace this part? Does the door have to be taken apart?
There are two of these part # AP436920 on the door, but only one being used. Would I be able to take
off the one that is good and not used, and put it on the broken side?
Answer Hello Steve. These are not hard to replace. You will remove the screw holding the dryer door latch W10295405 in place and replace the latch. Then the dryer door strike W10295405 unscrews from the dryer door. You can use the other latch, but it is not recommended by the manufacture. Hope this helps.
