Imagine my frustration when my wife told me that she couldn't open the dishwasher door!!! After finding the part on Parts Select, which was easy (even though my model was no longer being manufactured - it told me that the part was compatible), and then seeing the picture of the part, I knew that I could fix this very easily......or at least hoped. The parts arrived in just a few days after ordering (which was also very easy. I replaced the door latch assembly AND the heater switch in less that 20 minutes, carefully noting and labeling which connectors went to which terminals (big thanks to digital cameras)and replacing the control panel. Worked perfectly! Initially faced with the prospect of replacing a dishwasher at $600+, I now have a perfectly functioning appliance for around $25.00 cost and very little hassle. I also found that spare parts for other appliances are very reasonably priced and will definitely go to Parts Select again before I panic and buy a whole new unit. Very very pleased.
