Your suggestions did not help fix the problem. There is nothing wrong with the hinges. I took the control panel off and the door shuts with it off. When I put the control panel back in place, it will not shut. The metal striker appears fine and I think the problem is within the latch that connects with it. There are plastic pieces on each side and a piece in the middle. I do not know what that is supposed to look like but, it looks too recessed or perhaps a chunk has broken off.
How much is this costing me? One part of the ad said $30, another said $15. I am confused and need to know up front what I am paying, as i am not convinced I am going to be able to figure this out on my own. Do you have a pic or schematic of what this particular latch should look like?
