The door latch handle on my Maytag MDB6700 AWW dish washer appeared to be loose and possibly broken. I removed the inner door cover to check it out and found that two plastic tabs on the latch had broken off. That was the problem. I got on line, found the part and ordered it on Sep. 23. I was a little apprehensive that it would be the right part. I was shocked when it arrived on Sep. 25 after only two days. I never expected it so to arrive so quickly. The new part had steel where the plastic tabs that broke were, so I don't ever expect to have this problem again. I put in the replacement part and replaced the door panel and it is working perfectly. I am completely satisfied.
