Dryer door keeps opening

Dryer door keeps opening

The door keeps opening causing the dryer to quit. How can I keep the door from opening. It is not overloaded, but the clothes on the inside keeps pushing the door slightly open causing the dryer to quit.


Wade Wesley, check your door latches and make sure they do have enough tension. You can get replacements from here. Hope this helps, good luck.

you should also check the exhust hose for clogs both where it connests to the dryer and at the exit of the house,,,any back pressure could be pushing on the door helping it pop open

"I also have this problem. I bought new latches because it looked like the other latches' plastic was worn out.

I put it back together and it still won't latch well.

I'm really frustrated."
