It's actually a fairly easy part to replace if you're handy. You'll need to unplug the washer and open the door to start with. Then there is a wire ring around the front lip of the rubber door gasket. Use a flat head screwdriver and pry the wire ring off. From there you can pull the gasket back out of the way. Remove the screws going into the door latch from the front and reach behind the front panel to replace the door latch assembly. When re-installing the front of the gasket, the wire ring spring should be in the 6 o'clock position. It helps to start at the top and work your way down. Be sure to coat the wire ring in oil a bit so that it slides well on your fingers and is easier to put back on.
