I followed the instructions from others on this website. Removed the screws holding on the door panel, removed the door latch, BUT I removed the wires and the micro switches from the old door latch. I re-used the old micro switches and removed the new micro switches from the new door handle, re-installed everything and had it back up and running within 15 minutes. Took only two days to receive the new door latch/handle from Part Select. Be sure and disconnect the power to the dishwasher! I have my dishwasher plugged into a wall outlet so I just un-plugged mine to work on it. Turn off the circuit breaker if yours is not plugged into a wall outlet. KK

It was a simple repair. Took out all screws holding the back of the dishwasher door. Then, there were 2 plugs that needed to be unplugged and plugged into the new assembly then put it all back together. As I said before, real easy and saved me a lot of money on a repair man or new dishwasher.

Latch handle was loose

Switched off power at the circuit breaker and tested the electrical wire to insure power was off. I removed the inside door panel screws with a drill/driver and lifted the panel and that exposed the latch. I pried the 2 electrical connectors off the old latch assembly and disposed it. I then attached the electrical connectors on the new latch and set the latch in place. I installed the screws by setting the drill/driver on the lowest torque setting. I closed the door several times testing the latch. All worked fine.

Followed directions exactly as on the video; couldn't have been any easier. Removed screws around door, unfastened connectors (make sure power is off!); plugged in new assembly; reattached screws & it was ready to go. Must say that the new handle/latch assembly is better than the one that came with the dishwasher new. Had I known this part was available & so easily replaced, I would have put one on when I first got the dishwasher. When I first ordered, website said part was in stock & would be there in a few days. Then got an email saying something went wrong & part was now out of stock, but I still got it in about a week or so. I am a very satisfied customer.

The handles was brooken

The people at parts select were great. they even gave me a link to you tube that was helpful. the only issue I had was you tube link did not mention that they were just showing how to take off the handle and that if you were using the entire assembly you don't need to take off the handle. I followed the directions took the handle off when I didn't have to. But over all I don't think I could not have done it without your help.

Door latch handle loose due to worn latch assembly

Removed dishwasher door after turning of power. Pulled out worn latch assembly--this was a bit hard because even though the latch assembly works like a plug in an outlet, it was difficult to pry out. I was afraid of breaking something essential. The new piece easily attached and I just screwed the door back on. My first appliance repair ever!

Broken Handle Hinge, floppy useless handle

  • Difficulty: Easy

Electricity is live to the door when it is open - TURN OFF the CIRCUIT (got an uncomfortable buzz myself). Removed the interior plastic door liner (10 Torx screws), top middle two Torx screws also hold the handle in place to the door frame, pull the black and white wire connectors off the handle assembly (the hardest portion of the whole task), push them onto the new handle (black to black and white to white), and re-attache the door liner with the new handle in place. Part was an exact match and if I did it again it would be <10 minutes. ALternatively you can remove the new switches from the assembly and re-use the old switches if the handle is your only failure. The you have two new seitches in reserve if ever needed.

On line video at PartSelect instructions were excellent. I followed the instructions as outlined and it was a snap. I removed the screws, dislodged the broken assembly, inserted and placed the inside door cover with screws as video showed. It went exactly as it showed. Ran load immediately after and all is fine. Thanks for great parts, service and the instructions.

I watched the video to make sure I didn't do anything wrong and then did it. It probably took 5-10 minutes and works perfect.

Went online and found common things wrong with my dish washer. Found a you tube video how to check each part. Used my voltmeter for the first time and fixed it. No I am not a technician and this was my first time repairing a dish washer.

Remove several torx screws holding the door together. Now you have have the switch /latch unit in front of you. 2 screws and two electrical connections to unplug. remove old switch and install new one in the same place. connect the 2 electrical connections and reinstall the back side of the door to the front with the torx screws. Saved at least $150.00 on having a repair tech come to the house. This web site made it easy to find the part I needed, they took pay pal ,so payment was easy and safe. I had the part at my door in a couple of days.
