Want a picture of latch?
Expert:  A. Penland replied 6 months ago.
Try this first and let me know if the latch opens. Please do not try to slam the door closed. With the door open, using a Philips screwdriver insert it into the opening of the latch in the small opening. While someone pulls the handle and holds it out, push the screwdriver towards the body and try to open the latch.please let me know if the latch opens.

Please post a picture of the latch on the side of the door that closes on the striker.
