Easiest ever. Recycled the old one and put the new in its place. We are trying to place the silverware in, rather than dropping it in. It was suggested in the video from this website.

I disconnected the power from the dishwasher. I removed the screws from the inside door panel, unplugged two electrical connectors and lifted out the old door latch assembly. I plugged in the new door latch assembly and replaced the screws. I then turned the power back on. Maytag's price was $204. My cost was about $35.

1- replaced accumulator filter and docking station with flappers, the docking station with flappers may not have been necessary? But what the heck, if your into it this far why not. Check out the tech. Video it was helpful. The dishwasher works like new now. 2- the door latch switch was worn out, to replace this part I first unplugged the power cord then removed the 8 screws from the inner panel of the door exposing the door latch assembly. Unplugged the two connectors and installed the new part and reassembled everything, pretty easy! The dishwasher works like new now, and for around $ 102.00 bucks, saved lots of money doing it myself, thank you Parts Select for your help. Carlos, Lancaster, California.

We received the part very timely, I believe a couple of days after ordering. The part was chipped in the upper left side of the opposite the handle. However it did not interfere with installation. The repair video's helped and the task was very easy. Vickie

Repair was easy. Removed inside liner screws (8 I believe). The only hard part was removing the switch terminal connecting wires. This was a relatively new dishwasher but the switches were literally falling apart. I removed the old latch/switch assembly and put the new one in place. I reattached the wiring connections and put the screws back in. The wife was shocked. She said you just saved us $700! I got the celeb treatment after that! Great part and really great site.

removed the inside stainless cover, about 10 screws with torx heads, unplugged the latch assembly and plugged the new one to the electric circuit (make sure you unplug the dishwasher from the 110 volts plug first) and screwed the inside stainless cover back on.No repairman, no $100.00 bill++++The part was under $40.00 delivered in two days to the door. That simple.

Mounting Bracket and Door Handle broke

To replace the Door Handle, I had to remove the inside of the door with the 12ish Torx scres. It was a slide out slide in thing. To replace the brackets, I detached hoses, electricity and slid the DW out. More torx screws to come out, the three on top and the two on the sides allowed for me to bend down the white plastic tub away from the Aluminum square channel holding in the top mounting brackets.

The latching mechanism in the handle broke.

After you remove the 11 screws in the door the latch and switches come out really easy. The hard part was getting the wires from the 2 switches disconnected. It took some prying from a flat screwdriver to remove them. After that it was pretty easy to put back together.
