Pretty easy. Saved myself a lot of money by doing it myself. The part was only $28 ! You can never get a repair man to come out for less than $150. I ordered the part standard shipping on a Friday and received it Tuesday. Oh... and I'm a girl!

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.

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.

Considered calling repairman vs purchasing new...decided to take a look removed roughly 10 screws..saw broken part did online search...did not know where to look for model number (owners manual did not have parts list) web site showed where to look...did not know part name typed door handle... part came up roughly $40 including shipping... arrived in ~3 business days unplugged 2 wires installed entire experience less than 1 hour. This is the way technology is suppossed to work.

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.

Broken Handle only

  • Customer: Thomas from Bayfield CO
  • Difficulty: Easy
  • Time to Complete: 30 - 60 mins
  • Tools Required: Screw drivers

Just watched the video. The only problem I had was disconnecting the electrical connections. Since the dishwasher was sort of old, the electrical connections were probably stuck pretty hard. I sprayed a tiny amount of wd 40 into the metal portions of the connections, then carefully pried them apart with the side of a screwdriver, othewise the repair would have only taken about 15 minutes.
