Q:

Kenmore Dryer 11087561603 Door opens in middle of cycle.

A:

Hello,

Thank you for submitting a question to Manage My Life. I know how frustrating it can be when appliances do not function properly.

This issue is most likely caused by heavy items that are being dried hitting the door as they are being tumbled. Your door catch and strike (part number 279570) may be worn or damaged and are no longer able to hold the door securely. Here is a video that will show you how to replace the latch and strike; Video . Always unplug or de-energize electrical equipment before removing covers or attempting service. Be careful and wear appropriate hand protection when working around sharp metal parts.

If you do not feel confident repairing this problem yourself, then you can have it repaired at your home by a Sears technician. Here is a link for the website: Sears Home Services .

Here is a link that you may use to view the parts list diagram and for parts purchases; Sears Parts Direct .

I hope this is helpful. If I may be of further assistance as more details become available, please reply to this post.

Thanks again for using Manage My Life.
