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.

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.

I used a screwdriver with a torque bit and took off the inner door panel. Move the panel to the right side (as you face the dishwasher). Disconnect the two wire connnectors with a needle nose plier and discard the handle and connections. Install the new latch by making sure you attach the wires to the proper connectors. Make sure the connectors 'snap' in place. Place handle in proper slot and replace the inner door panel making sure that the two small flaps on the bottom of the inner door panel go inside the dishwasher (they cover the hinges). Tighten the screws and you are done!

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.

Called a repairman and he took the panel off and found that the plastic handle was broken. He reassembled the broken parts, gave me my bill and and it worked for two washings before quiting again. When I tried to call him back he was on vacation for two weeks. So I ordered the part myself for $30 and had it fixed in 15 minutes or less.

Door latch was inoperative

Easy fix, the only problem was the plug wires that were attached to microswitches on either side of the latch. The plugs that were connected to them did not come off easy and required two pliers with one of them on the microswitch and the other holding the plug connector and gently but firmly pulling them off. Once they were off, they plug connectors attached easily to new microswitches that came with the new latch.

The push buttons on the door will not activate.

The doors screws were removed. I separated the inter-door from the outer-door. I pulled the wire connector of the old latch and attached the new latch. put the two door pieces together. I replaced the screws. IT DID NOT SOLVE THE PROBLEM!
