How do I replace a Door Catch in a Dryer?

Sometimes the door catch is attached to the door but other times it is attached to the front panel. The door strike is mounted across from it when the door is closed. The door can't be opened until it is manually opened. The catch should be replaced if the door doesn't close and the strike is intact. The door catch can hold the door closed to start the cycle but can't hold the door shut to keep the dryer running.
