Dryer Door will not stay closed
How do I keep the dryer door closed on a GE gas dryer DCVH660GH. Can the door be out of alignment, or is there usually a slight spring action force on a closing door?

Hi Scott,Replacement parts in General Electric DCVH660GH0WW Gas dryer
There is a plastic door catch on the door and a metal peg that wedges into the catch to keep the door closed. Often the plastic part on the door will break and cause your problem. Here is the part I am talking about.
If this is not broken you may have something wrong with the door alignment or the metal peg may be broken. Lift up and down on the door and see if there is a lot of loose play and if so you may have something broken inside the door.
