Very first thing you will need to do is turn off the electricity of your dishwasher, if you don't you will have shocking experience. 1. You will need an allen wrench and a long nose plier. 2. Remove all the allen screws on the cover. 3. Using a long nose plier, remove the two pairs of metal prongs that plug into a white connectors on either side of the latch assembly. 4. Insert the new door handle and latch. 5. Put back the allen screws and voila you are done. It only takes about 10 minutes or less. That wasn't bad at all and no shocking experience. Have a blessed day!

I watched the attached video which came with the shipping conformation and followed the suggested steps. From there it went like clock work. I turned the power off, removed the screws, lifted the panel up, disconnected the 4 electrical plugs, took the broken handle assembly out and installed the new one. Connected the 4 plugs, put the panel back into place, installed the screws and closed the door!!!! Works like new.

Followed the video with two exception. When re-installing the door panel, I did not tighten the panel screws, but installed all of the screws first and then went back and tightened the screws. I had a little problem aligning the screws initially and this solved that problem. I also found that I did not need to disconnect the other electrical connectors on the front door other than those to the latch itself as there was sufficient room to replace the latch.

After removing the inside panel, the two plug-ins are removed from the old handle. They were very tight, be careful to avoid damaging the plastic. Plug into the new handle, drop in place and replace the inside panel. A video I watched recommended pulling the two plug-ins from the panel. It is not necessary if you have someone hold it apart from the door. Very simple installation, about 10 minutes.

Was easy to repair. Removed all the screws around the inside door panel and the allowed me to disconnect the 4 wires one the switch and reconnect them to the new one. Replaced the panel and all the screws and I was done. Connected the power back to the washer and it worked nice.

The installation of the handle was very simple. I was unable to remove the wires from the old switch, perhaps an extractor was required to unlock them so I left the old switches and the machine is working fine.

Door handle was recessed and difficult to open open.

Nothing to add to other customers' explanations. Except the handles that come with this model are prone to break. Problem was easy to fix and replacement door handle works great.

Buy the complete handle assembly with the switches. SHUT OFF THE BREAKER TO THE DISHWASHER. Remove inner door assembly with torx screws. Pull off switch wiring tabs and replace on new assembly the same order. Replace inner door cover. Switch breaker back on. Don't try this with live power trust me.

Broken door latch

The instructions and video were excellent. This repair couldn't be easier. First, turn off power to the dishwasher. I did this at the breaker box. Then. with a screwdriver with a torx (size 20) bit, I carefully unscrewed all the screws on the inside of the door, saving the ones by the latch for last. Holding the door with my knees as I sat on the floor, I unscrewed the final ones and the door popped open. I put the screws in the soap container on the door and closed it so I wouldn't lose any. Next, I removed the two plugs from the old latch assembly. These were tricky to remove because, I guess, over time, they've gotten slightly corroded. A pair of needle nose pliers could have made it easier. Then, I plugged in the new assembly and screwed everything back together. It's just that simple. And now the door works properly for the first time in years. I wish everything was as easy to fix as this was.
