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.

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.

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.

Broken Latch Handle

Removed screws on the inside of the dishwasher door revealing broken part. Used schematic diagrams on the web site to identify and order the part. The old part was easily removed and replaced just by slipping off a couple of wires and slipping the new ones back on. They were a little difficult to pull loose, but I was prepared for that from reading a previous review on the Parts Select website. This gave me the confidence to keep pulling until I got them loose.

The how-to video was very helpful. Word of caution. If you get the latch assembly WITH the door handle, disregard the first part of the video. I just unscrewed the 10 screws around the door, carefully unplugged the old assembly, plugged in the new one just as it came in, replaced the 10 screws and presto!, I was done. Easier to do than expected. Saved lots of money by doing it myself.

Turn off breaker to washer. remove 11 torques head screws from inside door. lift up inside door panel to pull out switch. remove 2 wire harness attached to each side of latch. note: the micro switches may break apart but that's okay not needed. attach wires to new handle and position back under panel . align panel and tighten screws. turn on power.

Following the instructions of another home repair, we took off the old part and attached the new one. Super easy! We figure it saved us at least $90 for a service call!

Turn off power. Remove 11 screws, raise inter door panel, disconnect the 2 wire harnesses on each side of handle assembly. Compare existing part with replacement part. Install the 2 wire harnesses on each side of the new switch, position door switch in the door recess, close inter door panel, install 11 screws. Close door and check for mechanical operation of new handle. Turn on circuit breaker and test electrical functions. Run load in dishwasher to self assure operation.

After watching the repair video and reading the experiences of other buyers, I felt confident I could make the repair myself. I ordered the needed part and followed the instructions from the video. I made sure the dishwasher was without power before I started. Once I got to the Latch Assembly, I was careful not to press too hard when separating the electrical lines from the assembly. Reassembling in reverse order was easy, and the whole process took less than 30 minutes.
