    Some fitting instructions would have been helpful. When I did eventually manage to dismantle the door, the problem was not the spring but the door itself where the plastic had fractured. This is the weak spot. I managed to insert some shim steel between door frame and latch spring and this appears to have fixed the problem for the time being. If it doesn't it will mean a new door, but the quality of the door latch spring was good and I did fit the new one while I had it all in bits.

    I bought this spring with a door latch. Parts are fine and good quality but I have spend ages trying to fit them to the door. I have made up special tools to assist, but without success so far. may be there is a trick I am missing. The problem is that you cannot hold the spring on the axis of the pivot pin and thus cannot assemble the pin. perhaps there are some tips ?

      I see from other reviews on this part that some customers appear to have had no problems while others may have struggled. This suggests it is more a knack when fitting rather than using a special tool. Try removing the door and assembling on a table as it may be more obvious how to assemble when off the machine. When you 'crack it' please pass the information on to us in another review to help future customers.

      Spring fits into door hook with long long wire sat on strengthened part of door surround with hook pointing inwards. However I tried I could not align all the holes to insert the spindle and needed an extra pair of hands (my wife). It then took a matter of seconds.
