I have a Whirlpool Duet Washing Marchine about 10 years old.

The washer stopped mid-cycle b/c it was unbalanced. Instead of running a spin cycle my Son pulled on the handle until it opened. :mad:

Now the washing machine door will not lock. The door handle (which I have replaced at least 3 times for probably similar reasons does not appear to be broken (8181877 is the item number for that part)

So it is probably a latch inside the machine?

Tell me what part I need and if my husband can attempt this repair himself.
See inside of your appliance - diagrams and part photos for virtually every model.

Our washer would not lock so I took earthquake putty and shoved it under the opening where the lock needs to “catch.” Our 5 year old washer works perfectly now. I just put my finger under the opening before each load to make sure the putty is securely fastened up under the opening.
