    Kenmore door latch

    Model Number: 665.13589k700
    Brand: Sears Kenmore
    Age: 1-5 years

    So my sister has the above and believes that her latch is broken. It's not locking and it feels as if the handle used has no tension. I'm guessing the spring has either given up or some plastic piece has broken internally. In my searching, I believe that the correct part is 8193830. are there any other parts needed? micro switch perhaps? Just want to check before I send her to purchase. Thanks!

    Have you checked the door strike to make sure that it didn't get bent or broken?

    This is the door strike for your model:

    In looking at the picture she sent, no it looks as if the latch is in good condition.
