Ordered the replacement door latch with switches because it came that way even tho I did not need the switches. While waiting for the part, I used two epoxy coated strips of cloth to repair the handle axle mounts. They held and probably are holding still. It took 10 minutes after the part arrived to replace my repair.

I searched online and found several problems of the handle breaking. I removed the inside panel and found indeed the handle was broke. I searched several online stores and found all offered the handle in white but I needed black. I found parts select and they had the best price fast shipping and the correct color. A+

This requires you to disconnect the AC power first. Then I removed inside cover of door, disconnected the [2] electrical switch connectors on the old Latch Assembly reconnected electrical connectors onto new Latch Assembly placed new switch in door and replaced the door cover. Don't make the mistake of ordering the Assembly w/o Handle. For some reason this part is available w/o Handle [no price difference] but my handle could not be transfered to the new Door Latch Assembly that came w/o Handle.

I followed the instructions from others on this website. Removed the screws holding on the door panel, removed the door latch, BUT I removed the wires and the micro switches from the old door latch. I re-used the old micro switches and removed the new micro switches from the new door handle, re-installed everything and had it back up and running within 15 minutes. Took only two days to receive the new door latch/handle from Part Select. Be sure and disconnect the power to the dishwasher! I have my dishwasher plugged into a wall outlet so I just un-plugged mine to work on it. Turn off the circuit breaker if yours is not plugged into a wall outlet. KK

Switched off power at the circuit breaker and tested the electrical wire to insure power was off. I removed the inside door panel screws with a drill/driver and lifted the panel and that exposed the latch. I pried the 2 electrical connectors off the old latch assembly and disposed it. I then attached the electrical connectors on the new latch and set the latch in place. I installed the screws by setting the drill/driver on the lowest torque setting. I closed the door several times testing the latch. All worked fine.

It was a simple repair. Took out all screws holding the back of the dishwasher door. Then, there were 2 plugs that needed to be unplugged and plugged into the new assembly then put it all back together. As I said before, real easy and saved me a lot of money on a repair man or new dishwasher.
