The door latch assembly includes the dryer door strike. Sometimes it is attached to the front panel. The door strike is pushed into the door catch when it is closed. The door can't be opened until it is manually opened. If the door strikes something, replace it. The catch should be replaced if the door doesn't close and the strike is intact. If the door strike holds the door closed to start the cycle but can't keep the dryer running, replace it.
