The quality of this product seems fine. The manufacturer now recommends this part number to replace broken latches on my dryer. There is a selection of 'strengths' in this package (20,22 and 25). The problem is (as others have stated), these latches don't hold the dryer door shut. I tried matching the strength of the clip with what broke in my machine to no avail. I tried all of the other strengths, and they all allow the dryer door to pop open with wet clothes - thus stopping the drying cycle. We have had to resort to taping the door shut or pushing something up against it. Sadly, I don't think this is a good replacement for the latches that came on the door in the original machine. Hope you have better luck than I did.

My dryer latches are size 18 and 20. The kit comes with 20, 22 and 25. Used 20 and 22 and the door popped open.

My dryer wouldn't stay closed and I looked for a latch that would fit. I found this one and decided to go for it. It was a great choice. It was easy to install and I didnt have to take many parts off my dryer. Now I dont have to place things against my dryer door to keep it closed.

First of all, I did not receive three catches and two latches - but instead only one of each. My door has two (top and bottom). I emailed the shipper (PartsAway) and they apologized and sent a second set (again, of only a single latch and catch). Fine - still not what the product description was, but at least I had what I needed.

However, the 1 star rating comes from the product itself. The metal catch (post? clip?) is so flimsy that after putting both in I felt like the door was worse than before. Plus, in open and closing the door a few times one of the metal catches popped out and stayed stuck in the latch (the white plastic piece). I tried separating the catches and opening the barbs up a bit to make them more rigid in the hole, but it didn't help and finally one of them snapped in half. The metal is SUPER thin and cheap - especially compared with the original catch. I had to put an original catch back in because the replacement one broke.

Now I'm still left with a door that is worse than before and when Wife finds out in the morning I'm sure I'll be ordering a new set from a reputable supplier that is (hopefully) better quality. I'm not sure why my experience was so different from all the other reviewers (I'm decently handy with this kind of stuff), but there you have it.

Don't pay a technician to fix something so simple. This was the right fit with multiple options if you are not sure which color you need. You can fix it!

Recieved the package and it was not what was in the picture. It worked just the same, but the picture needs to be updated with the correct parts.
I contacted the business who sold it and they said it stated in the description that it was plastic, not sure where but that is the response I decided back. Anyway it fixed my issue with a little bit work, so I am happy. A cheap part that I did not have to have to pay someone to instal, I call that a win in my book.

This is exactly what I needed to fix my dyer door.
I wish I would of bought this years ago, instead of propping something up against the door all the time.

If your door won't stay closed or opens when your using your dryer, you need to replace the latches. It is very easy to do, unplug dryer first. You will need: straight slotted screw driver (regular type) and a pair of pliers. Gently pry out the female end with screwdriver and use pliers to gently pull out the male end. Then just press new female and male ends in completely, Will take about 10 to 15 minutes.
