I took off the inner door Pannelof the dish washer to find out what needed to be fixed or replaced. Then i googled maytag and found the latch mechanism but it did not have a handle and the website suggested the latch and handle part that worked on many brands of dishwashers. I was skeptical but I needed the new handle that wasnt available with the other part. To my surprise it was just like the origional except for black color. I ordered the part online that night and had the new parts in just a few days. I watched the video to see how to put it together. It turned out to be easier than I thought.The dishwasher is working great and probably saved $75 or more in labor. Part number PS2180047
