THE DOOR ON OUR MDB/C-2 WILL NOT LATCH.

Customer Question

THE DOOR ON OUR MDB/C-2 WILL NOT LATCH.
Submitted: 1 year ago.
Category: Appliance
Expert:  Kelly replied 1 year ago.
Thanks for counting on us to help with your appliance problem. My name is ***** ***** I look forward to helping you! If it will latch with screws removed, the door may be out of whack and not aligning the latch correctly or the latch is in need of replacement. When you open the door all the way, does it slope down or lay flat?
Customer: replied 1 year ago.
THE DOOR DOES NOT LATCH WITH THE SCREWS REMOVED. THE DOOR LATCHES 1 TIME OUT OF MAYBE 30 TRIES. WHEN OPEN, IT LIES FLAT.

Can you double check that model number, please?

How old is this machine?
Customer: replied 1 year ago.
WE DON'T REMEMBER.
Expert:  Kelly replied 1 year ago.
Well, that is not a valid model number unless the machine is quite old, in which case I cannot locate the latch assembly. The model tag is in the upper left corner of the tub once the door is opened. It should look like MDBTT60AWW3.

MDB 5130AWB. WHY HAVE YOU CHARGED MY CC ALREADY?
Expert:  Kelly replied 1 year ago.
The latch for your model is available below. I suspect it will need to be replaced.
