Well, once again my wife found another way to destroy a household appliance. I get a crossed and angry "the dishwasher broke!" Of course, it was my fault!
So, she wanted to get a brand new dishwasher because the handle broke. Instead, I went on Partselect.com, bought the part and it was shipped in a few days.
I took the facing off the dishwasher with a screw driver. Used a torque bit to take out the latch assembly, and replaced the latch. I kept the seal in because I dont see any leaking, but I stowed the new seal away as a "Just in case". About an hour later, works perfect without a problem.
So, instead of spending 300 on a new dishwasher, I spend 46 and have some extra money for the holidays!
