The repair was simple. Remove panel. Pull off connectors using a flat head screwdriver to pry off. Reconnect. The video on Partselect site on how to replace the part was good but not accurate for the handle I replaced. Unfortunately, the handle was not the problem. If your door handle seems to be working and it will not start - no lights on the panel, try the control panel/dashboard.

Latch was broken and wouldn't operate.

Watched the video. Unscrewed the door. Detached the part. Attached the new one, really easy after seeing the video. Screwed the door back together. Ooh and don't forget to turn off the power before beginning!

Door latch was worn out, was still closing but it was only a matter of time.

Unscrewed the 10 screws to reveal the inside of the door, removed old assembly, popped in new one. Really. It was that easy, and the new one seems quite a bit sturdier than the old one was. Very happy with this repair.

After turning off the power and the water supply, I removed the old valve and replaced it with the new valve. Very simple -- the inlet line to the valve is attached with a hex fitting. The outlet is attached with a spring clamp. There is an electrical connector which powers the solenoid that opens the valve. The connector simply pulls off the old valve and is pushed back onto the new valve. With the power still off, I turned on the water supply to check for leaks. There were no leaks, but to my surprise, water immediately surged through the valve and into the dishwasher! -- Remember, there was no power to operate the solenoid! BAD VALVE? Back to the Internet. So far, I've found no other explanation. HELP!!

Ordered replacement basket, which was much sturdier and had nice center handle for lifting out. Very pleased with replacement part!

Handle/Latch Broke

  • Customer: HEATHER from LEWISTON ID

  • Tools Required: Screw drivers

I removed the front panel and the old handle came out easily. The only out-of-ordinary issue I had was that the wired contacts (the new handle assembly came with new contacts) wouldn't detach from the wires, so I took the new contacts off the new latch and used the old contacts with the new handle, and it worked fine.

This is a weak point in this model. This order marks the third time I've had to replace the part. Thank goodness it is a simple fix and doesn't break the bank. Not a bad trade off I suppose for nearly 10 years of trouble free service (less the handle). The following is a letter I sent to Customer Service: - I placed my order yesterday and had no expectation of my parts arrival until next week. Much to my surprise it arrived at my door today, one day after placing my order, fantastic! The part fit easily and if had I had questions on its fitment you have videos to assist me. Now that's watching out for your customers. I was very impressed by the service at partselect.

With the door open you remove the screws holding the inner door trim and the the switch and handle will come out as two of the screws hold it in place. Transfer the two wire connectors from the old assy to the new and reinstall. The whole process should not take more than fifteen minutes. The screwdriver used is a number twenty torx head.
