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.

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.

The bad handle broke along the LH hinge pin so making hard to open. PS: I pulled circuit breaker for power off why pull unit out to unplug?

Latch handle broke

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.

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.

Broken Handle only

  • Difficulty: Easy
  • Time to Complete: 30 - 60 mins
  • Tools Required: Screw drivers

Just watched the video. The only problem I had was disconnecting the electrical connections. Since the dishwasher was sort of old, the electrical connections were probably stuck pretty hard. I sprayed a tiny amount of wd 40 into the metal portions of the connections, then carefully pried them apart with the side of a screwdriver, othewise the repair would have only taken about 15 minutes.

Considered calling repairman vs purchasing new...decided to take a look removed roughly 10 screws..saw broken part did online search...did not know where to look for model number (owners manual did not have parts list) web site showed where to look...did not know part name typed door handle... part came up roughly $40 including shipping... arrived in ~3 business days unplugged 2 wires installed entire experience less than 1 hour. This is the way technology is suppossed to work.
