I followed the instructions given, and also viewed a video of the repair on YouTube. The hardest part was to figure out which circuit was for the dishwasher! I can't believe I solved the problem for less than $40.00 and in time for Holiday entertaining! Thank you!

After waiting for FedEx to finally deliver the part which they held at their warehouse for almost a week. I just shut off the breaker to the dishwasher, safety first, took out the 11 strews holding the inner door panel in place. Then I lifted out the old assembly pulled off the connectors. Then I slid the connectors onto the new assembly put the assembly in place and installed the screws and the job was done. The only tricky part was that it took some effort to pull the connectors off the old part.

I turned off the electricity to the dishwaher. I then unscrewed the dishwasher inner door piece using the allen wrench to expose the part. The hardest thing about the repair was pulling the 2 switch assemblies out of the old latch piece, this took at least 5 minutes. I attached the switches to the new part, screwed the door back together and I was done. The handle now works great.

Slid washer out from cabinet after disconnecting drain hose from garbage disposal and unplugging from electrical outlet. Was necessary to lay washer on side to disconnect drain hose from the dishwasher. Have towels ready as you will likely have some leftover water in hose & dishwasher. Used tape to secure insulation pad to washer so it would not catch on the side and top of cabinet when sliding back in place. Easy fix.

Removed screws from door liner. Lifted door liner. Placed handle latch assembly in place. Replaced door liner and replaced screws. Didn't work. Had to call dishwasher repair to come out. Turned out the little tiny pin in the latch assembly was stuck in the off position. Just make sure both pins are sticking out. If yours arrives stuck in the down position, just push on it a few times with a screwdriver to unstick it.

The door latch to the dishwasher broke

It was very easy. Shut off the electricity to the dishwasher. Take out the screws around the back of the door using a star type bit. The whole handle assembly pulls up. Disconnect the electrical connection with pliers. Reconnect the electrical connection to the new part. Put it in place and put all the screws back in. Turn the electricity on and that's it. This was so much easier than calling the landlord and trying to get him to fix it. The part was about $30 and it arrived the day after I ordered it on line.

Our dishwasher was not heating up to dry dishes

  • Customer: Claude from Helotes TX
  • Difficulty: Easy
  • Time to Complete: 1- 2 hours
  • Tools Required: Nutdriver, Screw drivers, Wrench(Adjustable)

All steps were easy except the Maytag layout made it hard to get to the fittings to remove and reconnect the water line. After that we just moved the dishwasher from beneath the counter and laid it down on the front. Removing and testing the old heater element was easy. The hardest part of installing the element was the odd clips inside the dishwasher. I need to return the o-ring and nuts because you included them with the heating element.

The repair went well. Got the part in the mail faster than expected. It took longer to take off the cover to the dishwasher that it did to replace the part. It could not have been simpler. Don't be a stud, be sure to unplug the dishwasher. You will be dealing with exposed conductors.
