Thought the striker was not matching the door, so tried to adjust it slightly. DO NOT DO THIS - I broke it. MDBH965AWB does not list a striker - Part Number PS1735065 is a suitable replacement. Actual problem turned out to be the black plastic door handle, so purchase the "latch, handle, switches" not just the latch.

Had two friends do this for me. Was very easy, but some instructions would have been nice, just to reassure them that they were doing it correctly. Was a very easy job and fixed just in time for Thanksgiving dinner. Shipped really fast too.

Turned off the power to the dishwasher. Removed approximately eight screws to remove the plastic inner door cover to access the door handle assembly. (two of the top screws held the door handle assembly in place) I removed two electrical plugs, removed the old door latch and replaced with the new one, plugged the two electrical plugs onto the new latch assembly, placed it into the top of the inside door, replaced the plastic inner door cover, replaced the screws, turned the power on, loaded the dishwasher and did a load of dishes. Super easy.

Dishes and glasses were left with little specks of food on them.

We watched the very excellent video on this web site for replacing the Accumulator Filter and followed the instructions it provided. It's possible that we could have just cleaned our existing accumulator filter once we understood what it was and how to get to it, but the results of replacing it have been dramatic. It's like a new dishwasher.

Turn off the power, remove the screws holding the inner door liner, unplug the three electrical connections, remove the cap screws holding the handle and switch assembly to the control panel and install the new part. Reassembly was the reverse of this.

Opened the door, removed the 11 screws (torks) holding the inside door panel on, lifted the panel and took a pic of the wiring connections for reassembly, then disconnected about 5 wire harnesses between the doors and on the control board, set inner door panel aside. Removed three hex head screws on control panel, depressed tabs holding circuit board in place, replaced with new panel and reassembled. The other parts were just snap on inside the dishwasher except for the inlet which is for future replacement as my lower sprayer arm is still functioning but is wearing out. Now the problem is fixed, and all buttons on the control panel function as well

Repair was simple. I removed the screws holding the door liner in place and pulled-off the electrical connectors on the old handle. Then I connected the connectors to the new handle and put the screws back in.
