Good morning!

So the latch is fairly easy to replace, but you'll need to take the unit apart to do this. First, unplug the dryer and open the door. Remove the 2 screws going through the door hinges into the front panel. Remove the 2 screws on the opposite side of the door way and the front panel will unclip at the top and pull forward and down. Once you remove the front panel, use a 5/16" socket or nutdriver and remove the 5/16" hex screws below the top panel in the upper right and left corner. The metal clips holding the top panel will remove and you can tip the entire top panel up and backwards. Now just remove the 5/16" screws holding on the front panel so you can pull the front drum support out a bit and remove the door latch on the back of this front drum support.
