We have a Front Load Dryer and the Door won't catch, it seems to be a plastic latch/catch.
Can this be replaced easily or do I need to call someone in to repair it, and how do I go about getting the parts? are there stores that sell parts or is it just through online?

Hi,

Yes.

or do I need to call someone in to repair it
Probably not, but if you cut yourself grabing a screwdriver from the tool box....call someone in! ;)

and how do I go about getting the parts? are there stores that sell parts or is it just through online?
Both.
