Washer Dryer Door Lock Mechanism

Get your washing machine and tumble dryer to stay securely shut. This safety lock tells the machine when it is safe to allow the door to open and close. If your appliance is refusing to start, or the door will not open or close, you may need to replace the door interlock. With this handy replacement fitted in place, you'll have a fully working appliance once again.

Genuine spare part for select models of Bauknecht, Ikea and Whirlpool tumble dryers.

Please check the suitable model fit list to ensure that this is the correct part for your appliance.

    Replacement part broke after a month

    Part was delivered quickly and fit perfectly. Unfortunately, the plastic cracked within a month and therefore will need to purchase a replacement part again. Will be trying a different manufacturer to see if I can get something that is of higher quality.

    Could I have been unlucky?

    The locking mechanism relies on a spring held in compression to hold the dryer door closed. The plastic lugs on which the compressed spring rests are insufficiently strong to support the spring. The original part lasted 10 years the replacement part 2 months. Got another part foc from supplier no problem there. Lets hope it lasts longer this time. When you get the part you wonder what you have paid for. Part not worth the price.

    Hi Gabi Unfortunately we do not stock door lock mechanisms for the Whirlpool AWZ7813 tumble dryer, and this one is not compatible. However we will look to our suppliers and aim to stock one in the future. We hope your search for a lock was successful though!
