One set of dryer parts that wear out is the dryer latch assembly. This consists of a catch and a latching prong. Whether you have a need to buy Maytag dryer parts, Frigidaire dryer parts, or some other brand, the latch assembly comes in either metal or plastic and is very inexpensive to buy. You may well as why you can't just velcro the door shut or some other type of improvised solution, but if the dryer door won't close properly, the machine won't turn on. Order the dryer parts in the form of a kit from any online dryer parts vendor, and replace the old, worn out assembly.
