We ordered the part from Partselect. It arrived in the mail. We watched the repair video available the site. My husband performed the repair. We turned on the dishwasher and it worked. That simple and that quick and cost far less than calling the repairman.

I could see the break in the handle so I ordered the complete handle and latch assembly. I first called Maytag and they wanted almost twice what PartSelect wanted for the same assembly. I ordered the assembly late in the evening and it arrived the second day from PartSelect. That was with the least expensive shipping rate! I saw previous repairs on PartSelect that stated the connectors are difficult to come off the switches on the assembly. So I re-used the old switches by just holding back two clips and sliding them off the old latch assemby. I slid the new switches off the new latch assembly and slid the old ones on. Without having to disconnect the wires from the switches. The new latch assembly fits exactly in the spot of the old latch assembly. But the new handle on the latch assembly uses a metal pin that the handle pivots on instead of a piece of plastic which the old assembly had and broke.

Found the part on Part Select quickly. Ordered the part at about 11am via the internet using regular ground shipping. The part came the next day about noon. The email I received when the part shipped contained a video for part installation. The installation went smooth and quick. I have Part Select in my favorite places for future needs.

Door latch was broken, wouldn't engage door

Turned off circuit breaker to dishwasher. Removed inside door panel using Torx20 driver. Unplugged electrical connectors on either side of latch. Removed latch. Used screwdriver to release the catch on new replacement latch. Installed new latch, reconnected electrical connections, reengaged the latch catch. Put back the inside door - this took a little time to align the screws but once the top corners were in, the rest lined up easily. Turned the circuit breaker back on. Had watched the video and this repair was much easier as the door latch was the simplier type and very easily latch/unlatched prior to and sfter the installation.

I turned the power off to the dishwasher. I removed the door panel 11 star drive screws. Removed the latch assy and using a small pair of channel locks removed the safety switch electrical fittings one at a time and installed them in the new latch assy. The Latch assy I purchased from PartSelect fit perfectly. I reassembled the door and tested and it worked like a charm. BTW upon examination of the new latch ssy it appears more heavy duty than the original one I replaced so it may be the last time I replace this part

This one is a breeze with the video supplied by parts select. The only specialty tool required is a torque screw-driver T-20. The door plate is removed, wires disconnected and the new latch put in place. Hook the wires back up, screw everything back in and the job is complete. It took me about 10 minutes. Don't forget to turn off the power before installing.

Dishwasher Was Leaking - Air/Water Inlet Port Design Flaw!

  • Customer: William from Asbury Park, NJ
  • Difficulty: A Bit Difficult
  • Time to Complete: 1- 2 hours
  • Tools Required: Screw drivers
  • 0 of 0 people found this instruction helpful
The toughest part of this repair was figuring out where the leak was. All the connections were tight. Had to run almost a full cycle before it was apparent that the water/air inlet port was the culprit. Had no idea initially why it was leaking so I ordered all the parts for that component (rental house, 40 miles away). When I pulled the unit out I ran another cycle to see what was leaking and discovered that just enough water was being splashed back into the port from the spray arms and a little was splashing out the top of the component body. I ordered the Air/Water Inlet Foam Insert (although this piece is not shown in the diagrams nor is any description given of where it goes). I surmised that the insert needed to go behind the inlet cover on the inside of the dishwasher with the rounded side up. The cover snaps back into place to hold it in position. Had I know the design flaw in the inlet port exists it would have been a 30-second fix, pop off the inlet cover place the foam in and snap the cover back on. As it was I spent hours diagnosing it and seconds to actually fix it!
