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.

The only problem was pulling the wire connectors off the switches. They were very tight. Other than that the handle replacement was extremely easy and the new part works great

First I hit the breaker box cut the power to my dishwasher. Put my drill on the lowest rpm setting, because the internal case is plastic. This is important even though this is on the outside of the rubber gaskets. Then star T20 screws take them out there are two where the handle is to secure the handle into the door. Since all that was broken was the handle. on the new part I loosened up the switches and pulled them out of the broken piece, as well as the new part. Removed the broken pieces from the inside door. Then this is when it gets tricky putting the old switches into the new plastic handle, there is a button that has to be pushed in, it's super small you can use a small screwdriver or a bic pen, then they clip in. Replace the door screws very slowly you are going to have to pull the plastic housing towards the hole. Get them all in place before tightening to avoid cracks. Then power on and wash some dishes.

Door handle broke. The door leaked water.

I viewed the video of the repair. I found removing all the connections inside the door wasn't necessary. Just remove the wires at the door handle assemble. Be sure to unplug it before touching any wires inside. The door handle wires are hot all the time. I placed the wires on the new handle assemble and placed the handle on the pivots and through the opening. I placed the inside cover backing onto the door and placed the screw's in the holes. I snugged the screws in reverse order as I removed them. 5 minute repair. The parts came quickly as well. I was down for 3 days. Thank you PartSelect.com .

Latch handle was broken, but Dishwasher still worked

I read the installation instruction from other postings, Followed what others have done, BANG! Piece of cake! The only problem I had was the bag in which the part came in was sealed and missing a micro switch, and a broken pin. But the door holds the switch in place and I did not want the hassle of sending it back. If it would not have worked, then I would have. I highly recommend these guys for parts! They have all the hard to find parts, and FAST SHIPPING!

My son did my repair and was so glad to see that you had replaced the plastic pins that had broken with metal ones. It was a very easy repair. Thank you for your quick delivery also. I'll be back if anything else breaks.

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.

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.
