Cheap fix for a broken tumble dryer door

25 11 2012

With both the catch broken, and the tumble dryer door warped, this was going to be an expensive repair. I had in mind some sort of bonnet catch that I remembered seeing many years ago, and ebay turned up a suitable item for £2.80 + P&P. Four pop rivets and some careful positioning and I now have a door that doesn’t leak condensation and actually completes the drying-cycle.
