The part arrived by Fed EX ground the next day. I removed 11 screws from inside the door, lifted up the panel, lifted out the old latch, unplugged two wire connectors, reconnected the two wire sets to the new part, layed it back into the door and reassembled with the 11 screws. The repair was very easy if you have the correct screw driver.

It was my good fortune to find PartSelect.Com while searching for information regarding a repair. Not only did PartSelect have the needed part at a reasonable price but the web sites video on how to effect the repair was excellent. The part itself was delivered in record time and the repair itself performed in less than half an hour. This is the best repair assistance I've encountered in the past 50 years. It's a web site I'll keep available for the future.

Monday morning, and the dishwasher handle broke - oh my!! I didn't want to call a repairman, so headed to google. I easily found the part I needed at Partselect, and the bonus of a video on how to replace the handle/latch assembly. I placed the order on Monday, and received the part on Wednesday - wow!! The repair was easy - the video gives great confidence. I really liked the savings involved by NOT having to call a repairman. Thanks. Mike

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.

I shut off the breaker to the washer, then unscrewed the eleven srews holding the inside door panel which also holds the handle in place.(I used a cordless screw driver with the proper bit) I then removed the entire handle assembly, and pryed off the electrical clips and replaced them to the new part, then set the new handle assembly in place. I then screwed the 11 door panel screws back on and it was done.... EASY, took less than ten minutes.

Took the screws off the inner panel to see what was wrong. looked carefully at part, and then looked it up on part select.com. In 3 days the part arrived. Again took the inner panel off, and used pliers to remove the wires from the old part. Reinstalled on new part. Replaced inner panel and screws, turned on the dishwasher, and it worked fine. It was especially helpful to see the different parts on the partselect web site.The whole repair took less than 15 minutes.

removed 11 star bit screws remember where which ones go as some are different. removed outer cover and removed 2 electrical plugs and just reversed the process everything went great. tho the plugs were a little tricky but just a little wiggle and they finally came loose this is one area you want to take your time as they look like they could break oh and don't forget to unplug the power or can get a little exciting.

Video was very helpful. I had no problem replacing the door latch. After one wash cycle, control board went dead. Lights come on, but start button doesn't star the dishwasher. Just decided to buy a new one.
