Hi, If the door isnt loose or broken? Its more likely to be the rubber door seal if its leaking between the seal and the door glass. Check the edge of the seal where it touches against the glass for damage or ware if its ok clean any soap residue or bits from the glass.If it still leaks change the door seal.

It's doable. A few things to consider before you start.
1. Make sure it's the door and not the frame of the camera itself. I got a new door and replaced it only to find that the part of the frame that receives the door latch was broken.
2. There are several fragile parts in the camera (notably an aluminum strip on the bottom of the camera, opposite the battery door). I would suggest that if you are nervous about operating on cameras and the like, you find a friend who is comfortable with this.
For removal of the back half of the frame, see http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=Xg6vczoliB0
You will need, however to pry off the FRONT part of the frame to get to the pin that holds the battery door. Do this carefully; you don't need to get it off completely to see the head of the pin.
The head of the pin is bent at a 90° angle. The head is about 2 millimeters long. You will need to get a fine instrument (a sewing needle will do the trick) to get beneath it, and pull it out. You only need to pull it out about 3/4 of the way to lift the battery door and slide it off.
Now, just do the above in reverse to reassemble the camera. Snapping the back and front into place can be tricky, so look carefully how the screw holes need to meet parts of the frame before pressing too hard.
when the door closed it actually activates the switch. see on the door if any plastic piece from the frame is broken or not and locate where in the machine does the front cover activates switch. it will be easy to find the broken part.
I take it you live in Perth, Scotland and not Perth Australia.
Contact whirpool direct and say that you need part number 4812 440 10817 it shows on whirlpool database as a glass door frame but it means it's the plastic around the glass ( I promise you) acording to my system ( I'm a Whirlpool engineer) you can get one direct from us for about £22.77 plus delivery or you could go to your local retailer with the part number given and see if you can get it cheaper
remove spring from around front of door seal roll seal away from door frame remove the 2 screws holding lock assembly to frame pull latch toward opening unplug the wires reinstall in reverse..reinstalling spring on door seal will be hardest part but not too bad
you need a part number 5366021400 latch kit I think take your model and serial number to you local appliance dealer and they will probably have one on the shelf and its so easy to install just pull the old broken part out and replace with new one
