How to replace the door latch on bravo xl dryer

Contractor's Assistant: What's the make and model of your dryer? And can you guesstimate how old it is?

Maytag MOD MGDB850YG1 Type BSLA-NAT--1206006-EL20 SER M21602195

Contractor's Assistant: Do you plan on doing the work yourself?

I want to just remove the latch so we can use the machine until we can either find the part or get a repair person in to do it

Which side do you need to remove?

The part that is on the door

Ok, it is pressed into the door. You remove it by getting two putty knives (each on one side), then squeezing the door catch while at the same time - pushing it out. It may take a few tries, but that is the best way to get it out.. Would you like a source for the part as well?
