Dishwasher door handle broken internally

Ordered the replacement door latch with switches because it came that way even tho I did not need the switches. While waiting for the part, I used two epoxy coated strips of cloth to repair the handle axle mounts. They held and probably are holding still. It took 10 minutes after the part arrived to replace my repair.

1st. I turned off power to the machine. Mine has a light switch on the wall nearby that I can just turn off. If you don't shut it off at the breaker box. 2nd. I unscrewed the interior of the door to investigate the problem, and find out what the part looks like. 3rd, I found and ordered the part on Maytag's website. It only took about 3 business days. That was about 2 days faster than I expected. 4th, I disconnected the wiring from the old door handle, using the pliers. Plugged in the new part. Situated it back into the machine and screwed the door interior back on. 5th, I tested the door handle for ease of operation. 6th, I re-applied power, and tested the machine. That Was SO EASY!!! If you are not sure on how to do this. There are several How to videos on the web site. Thank You Parts Select

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

  • Customer: Chris from Mandeville LA
  • Difficulty: Easy
  • Time to Complete: 15 - 30 mins
  • Tools Required: Pliers

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.
