Latch handle was broken, but Dishwasher still worked

I read the installation instruction from other postings, Followed what others have done, BANG! Piece of cake! The only problem I had was the bag in which the part came in was sealed and missing a micro switch, and a broken pin. But the door holds the switch in place and I did not want the hassle of sending it back. If it would not have worked, then I would have. I highly recommend these guys for parts! They have all the hard to find parts, and FAST SHIPPING!

My son did my repair and was so glad to see that you had replaced the plastic pins that had broken with metal ones. It was a very easy repair. Thank you for your quick delivery also. I'll be back if anything else breaks.

Very straight forward repair. Parts Select provided the right part with very timely (regular FedEx)delivery. Repairclinic.com provided excellent video to show basic repair steps. Suggest using a "star" tip screw driver to disassemble interior parts of the machine to clean out years of gunk which will reduce the chance that the drive motor will bind/fail (which mine did and which saved me the cost of a new motor or new dishwasher). Upon reassembly, be sure to check water supply copper compression fittings for leaks that moving the machine can cause. Place pads under "feet" of machine to avoid marring wood floor when moving machine.

The docking stations just pulled of and snapped on. I took the tube in the back out to make sure the docking stations were seated well but I'm not even sure that was needed. Very easy. Another contributing factor was using rinse aid with an all-in-one gel pack detergent. I let the rinse aid run out and it's been working great ever since.

After installing a new filter, :( I tried this. I wish I would have done this first since it's way cheaper and easier!!! If your dishwasher slowly starts to decline in its ability to clean the dishes, it's probably this problem.

I opened the door of the dishwasher, pulled out the old silverware basket, and then placed the new silverware basket where the old one was. The whole time, I was imagining how much it would be to call up and appliance repair guy and have him do this.

Take out old basket throw it away. Put in new basket. time: 20 seconds. It took longer to open the package. I'm guessing at the brand, and I'm not going to my other house to find out.

Repair was as easy as video. Did not have to disconnect the soap dispenser, just had helper support interior panel while I removed the connections to the latch. Repair less that 5 minutes after I found the correct bit. Service was great.
