So in a pre-coffee laundry stupor I tripped and landed right on the door of my faithful Kenmore dryer (model 110.60902990)  The door won't stay latched now.  I'm sure I bent something, but not sure what it is.  I took the door off and it doesn't look bent.  How do I know what I broke?  I don't want to order door hinge/springs if the door is what is broken.

Help!

Ok....

My method to straiten the hinges is this..

I open the door and place a 11/32'' 1/4" drive deep well socket in the lower corner of the door, laying flat, and slowly close the door. Repeat on the other corner. This will bend the hinges back to a position where the door will latch.

Seams odd, but it works and you don't have to buy nothin'
