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!

I called a local repair person and he said the cost to fix this would be over $100, he said the part would cost $65. I went online found the part and ordered it. In two days I had the part in my hands! I then watched a video on how to install the handle. The video said it would take about 30 minutes to complete the installation and they were right, in fact it took less than a half hour. I saved myself over $100, didn't have to wait for installation, and got the satisfaction of fixing the dishwasher myself.

The door latch is plastic and it broke free of its mounting.

Very easy. Remove the screws on the back and lift the back up. The handle assembly lifts right out. The only difficult part is removing the electrical connection. I used needle nose pliers to pry them off. Be careful about over tightening the screws in the plastic door.

removed 8 screws, took the back of the door off, unplugged three wire just so I would have more room to work, could have gotten by with just removing two. Two screws held the old handle in place, replaced the old handle with new handle, reattached the wires, put the back of the door in place, replaced the screws and viola! working handle again! Guys, if I could do it, anybody could. Saved myself a $100.00 service call plus middle man cost for the part. All in all, a good move.

I saw an online video that showed taking the inside door panel off, removing the wiring from the latch and then replacing the latch. It looked simple and was simple. Luckily, I had a set of so-called "security" bits, which were required to get the door panel off. I had no trouble replacing the latch assembly except the wires to the two switches were very tight. It looked like the factory had squirted some adhesive into the connectors after assembly. I was able to get them off after a brief struggle and had no problems putting them back on the new switches. The latch assembly fit perfectly, which surprised me. My only disappointment was the latch assembly fit a lot of brands, indicating that there is nothing special about Maytag anymore. Too bad. They used to have good products that were unique for their quality. One last comment: Be sure to turn off the circuit breaker feeding the dishwasher or disconnecting its plug. This is the only safe way to work on it.

I read the reviews and procedures at PartSelect and was able to complete the task in 10 minutes. I unscrewed the hex screws, pulled off the door backing, pulled out the old handle assembly, disconnected the wires to the old handle assembly switches, put the new assembly in and connected the wires. Then I screwed the hex screws back on securing the backing to the door and it was good to go.
