I watched your "how to video" and dug right in. No real skill involved once you see how to do it. Think it took me 15 -20 minutes.ust have saved $100 dollars on the service charge and repair markup on the part.

Watched the instruction video, and just did it. Was so happy the part can the next day. Save your money and do it yourself. It's easy.

Removed the 11 torx head screws from the inside door panel. Popped out the handle assembly and pulled very hard and wiggled back and forth on the two electrical connectors to remove them from the switch contacts. Reassembled in opposite order. By the way, the plastic holding the lower part of the handle assembly to the door was also chipped away, so after setting the handle assembly into the slot in the front of the door, I stuffed some styrofoam over the body of the handle assembly so that the inside door panel would hold it tight against the front door panel when screwed together. The new handle assembly has been working fine now for a couple of weeks.

Latch broke and dishwashe would not lock.

Your video with step by step instructions was most helpful. Since we bought the entire latch assembly including the handle, I did not need to remove the handle but only the plug in wire sockets and connect them to the new assembly. The first time I viewed the video I thought the handle had to be removed. In a subsequent viewing I realized it was unnecessary to do that when a complete handle and latch assembly was purchased. Pointing that out might be helpful.

1st. I turned off power to the machine. Mine has a light switch on the wall nearby that I can just turn off. If you don't shut it off at the breaker box. 2nd. I unscrewed the interior of the door to investigate the problem, and find out what the part looks like. 3rd, I found and ordered the part on Maytag's website. It only took about 3 business days. That was about 2 days faster than I expected. 4th, I disconnected the wiring from the old door handle, using the pliers. Plugged in the new part. Situated it back into the machine and screwed the door interior back on. 5th, I tested the door handle for ease of operation. 6th, I re-applied power, and tested the machine. That Was SO EASY!!! If you are not sure on how to do this. There are several How to videos on the web site. Thank You Parts Select

It was a piece of cake..... It took me longer to clean the door panel and seal from the last 6 years than to do the handle. The handle took about 10 minutes. VERY EASY...

I am not what you would call a handy-man type..My wife owns most of our tools. I decided to attempt to try to fix the dishwasher seening it was going to cost me a new dishwasher if anyway. I went online found Parts Select entered the info watch the video ordered the part (which arrived the next day)to my surprise. It was so easy I think next I think I will fix the Pool light that my wife has been nagging me about for the last couple of month...thanks Parts Select. Bruce

Broken Door Handle

Removed all screws except the bottom two, and then propped up the door cover to get at the latch assembly. The assembly lifts out, pull off, with difficulty, the two wire connectors. Plug connectors back into the new latch assembly, sit it back into it's position, put the screws back in and your done. Much easier than I thought it would be. Note: do not put the screws in the soap holder, as they show in the video, if you accidentally spill them out, they can roll down into the bottom of the dishwasher, not good!

Using a drill driver I removed the 11 screws from the door liner. Lifted the liner, removed the switch assembly. Carefully pulled at the wire connections with pliers, the small pin locator broke which freed the switch and facilitated an easy removal of the wire connector. On the second switch/wire connection I used a small screwdriver to release the plastic latches and removed that switch with its wires. That allowed easy removal of the wires with the pliers. Inserted the wires in the new assembly, placed it in the door, aligning the screw holes, Using the drill driver, I replaced the eleven screws, being careful to use the longer screws across the top of the door liner. Done.
