I followed video instructions on your website. What impressed me most was that the replacement handles were made stronger than the handles that they were replacing. I feel sure that if the dishwashers hold together that the handles will not need to be replaced again. Thank you, Tim

I looked up the model number, found the door mechanism, looked it over and decided it was something I could do. Ordered the part and it arrived the next day. I removed the inside panel, found the switches difficult to release so quickly checked the online repair video and saw they did require a bit of force to remove but I was doing as they showed so went back to it and finished in minutes. It was easier than a door handlle. The only thing some folks might not have is the star driver to remove the screws in the panel. Really appreciate the quick delivery and there was not an expidite charge. I thought it would be a week coming :)

Remove inside door panel by removing the screws along the 2 sides and top. Remove the panel. The latch assembly is sandwiched under the panel and door, so it just needs to be lifted out to make unplugging the switch connectors easier. Assemble by plugging switch connectors on to the new unit and then place the latch assemble back on the door aligning the screw holes. Lay the inside panel on the door and start the all the screws half way to ensure proper alignment. Finish by tightening all the screws.

Door latch was not opening

We could not open the door without "popping" it open. After ordering and receiving the door latch assembly, I removed the inside door panel, unplugged the wiring harness (shut off the electricity first), lifted the door latch assembly out (the handle came out in pieces), unplugged the switches on either side, then reversed the procees with the new part in place. One thing, be sure to order the door latch assembly with the handle. It's worth paying a few dollars more to have everything you need the first time.

The handle broke and was hard to open the door!

After getting out my manual from March, 2005, I found the part and they had it in stock. I watched the video and knew it would be a piece of cake. After ordering it, I went ahead and removed the inside of the door and the parts so all I had to do when the new one arrived was pop it in and put the door back together. In the meantime, I used the dishwasher a my drainer. I don't believe it took more than about 20 minutes total. I'm only 78 years young but I have a lot of mechanical ability! BTW - - regular mail and it was here in 3 days!

Part #PS2180046. Simply watched the video and followed instructions. Luckily I had the special screw bit needed to take the screws off the back door of the diswasher. Other than that it was very simple to do.
