Unplugged the dishwasher, then I removed all the screws in the door to split the outer and inner panel apart. Then I removed the two door handle wire connection points at the micro switches and removed the old door handle. Installation is just the reverse of this.

Lift up the panel, Pull out the handle assembely, mark the top of the electronic plug in's left and right, wright on the top so you will know what side is the top.

The door latch was not operating

First and most important; TURN OFF THE POWER. I had to do this at the circuit breaker. Second, just open the door and remove the 11 torx (sp) type screws. Lift the inner panel from the front door. Lift out the old switch. The most difficult problem I had was to unplug the old wires from the 2 side switches. I had to remove the switches from the "OLD" door latch and then use pliers to remove the switch connectors from the plugs. Next take the new switch with the handle positioned toward the door opening and plug in the wire connectors. Place the new switch in its location, set the inner panel in place and loosely install the 2 screws that hold the switch in place. Then loosely install all 9 remaining screws. Then go back and gently tighten all 11 screws. Your DONE!

I first watched the repair video on the site which I thought was very helpful. I turned the power off and then took the inside door cover off which exposed the latch. I removed the wire connectors from the old latch and removed it. I placed the wire on the new one and put the new latch into position.I then retached the inside cover, Turned the power back on and I was ready to go.It took me less than 15 minutes.

I took off the inner door Pannelof the dish washer to find out what needed to be fixed or replaced. Then i googled maytag and found the latch mechanism but it did not have a handle and the website suggested the latch and handle part that worked on many brands of dishwashers. I was skeptical but I needed the new handle that wasnt available with the other part. To my surprise it was just like the origional except for black color. I ordered the part online that night and had the new parts in just a few days. I watched the video to see how to put it together. It turned out to be easier than I thought.The dishwasher is working great and probably saved $75 or more in labor. Part number PS2180047

What I though would be a big ordeal, turned out to be a simple fix with the help of this website! I had a handle that would not work anymore and so looked up the make of the dishwasher and found the latch assembly part right away. I looked at the online video and pictures and it was really quite simple to do. Common sense told me to turn off the power to the dishwasher first and I did so at the circuit breaker. I have a electrical tool that tells me if power is flowing through a wire by making a loud beeping sound and I double checked to make sure the power was off. Then I took out the star shaped screws in the dishwasher plastic panel using a socket screw driver set I had (which happened to have the right attachment) Then, I saw the latch assembly which came off easily after removing the 2 screws holding it in place. The latch assembly had 2 wires attached on each side to the switches. I used a skinny screw driver to gently push back the plastic levers holding the switches in place and they slid off the old assembly. Then, having the old assembly in hand, I compared it to the online version and it matched exactly, so I ordered it. I took 2 days to arrive which was awesome. This was routine shipping. The rest was easy. I simply used the old switches still attached to the wires and slid them onto the new latch assembly after removing the new switches. I kept the old ones in case I need them later. I put everything back in place and the screws back in and turned on the power. It closed perfectly and worked perfectly! This was a piece of cake and I saved over $100 I am sure it would have cost to have someone come out.

I watched your "how to video" and dug right in. No real skill involved once you see how to do it. Think it took me 15 -20 minutes.ust have saved $100 dollars on the service charge and repair markup on the part.

The part arrived by Fed EX ground the next day. I removed 11 screws from inside the door, lifted up the panel, lifted out the old latch, unplugged two wire connectors, reconnected the two wire sets to the new part, layed it back into the door and reassembled with the 11 screws. The repair was very easy if you have the correct screw driver.
