I searched online and found several problems of the handle breaking. I removed the inside panel and found indeed the handle was broke. I searched several online stores and found all offered the handle in white but I needed black. I found parts select and they had the best price fast shipping and the correct color. A+

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 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.

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!

Original Door Latch Broken

  • Difficulty: Really easy

This requires you to disconnect the AC power first. Then I removed inside cover of door, disconnected the [2] electrical switch connectors on the old Latch Assembly reconnected electrical connectors onto new Latch Assembly placed new switch in door and replaced the door cover. Don't make the mistake of ordering the Assembly w/o Handle. For some reason this part is available w/o Handle [no price difference] but my handle could not be transfered to the new Door Latch Assembly that came w/o Handle.

Latch broke and dishwashe would not lock.

Your video with step by step instructions was most helpful. Since we bought the entire latch assembly including the handle, I did not need to remove the handle but only the plug in wire sockets and connect them to the new assembly. The first time I viewed the video I thought the handle had to be removed. In a subsequent viewing I realized it was unnecessary to do that when a complete handle and latch assembly was purchased. Pointing that out might be helpful.

It was a piece of cake..... It took me longer to clean the door panel and seal from the last 6 years than to do the handle. The handle took about 10 minutes. VERY EASY...

I am not what you would call a handy-man type..My wife owns most of our tools. I decided to attempt to try to fix the dishwasher seening it was going to cost me a new dishwasher if anyway. I went online found Parts Select entered the info watch the video ordered the part (which arrived the next day)to my surprise. It was so easy I think next I think I will fix the Pool light that my wife has been nagging me about for the last couple of month...thanks Parts Select. Bruce

BROKEN DOOR HANDLE

REMOVED ALL SCREWS EXCEPT THE BOTTOM TWO, AND THEN PROPPED UP THE DOOR COVER TO GET AT THE LATCH ASSEMBLY. THE ASSEMBLY LIFTS OUT, PULL OFF, WITH DIFFICULTY, THE TWO WIRE CONNECTORS. PLUG CONNECTORS BACK INTO THE NEW LATCH ASSEMBLY, SIT IT BACK INTO IT'S POSITION, PUT THE SCREWS BACK IN AND YOUR DONE. MUCH EASIER THAN I THOUGHT IT WOULD BE. NOTE: DO NOT PUT THE SCREWS IN THE SOAP HOLDER, AS THEY SHOW IN THE VIDEO, IF YOU ACCIDENTALLY SPILL THEM OUT, THEY CAN ROLL DOWN INTO THE BOTTOM OF THE DISHWASHER, NOT GOOD!

Handle Broken on Dishwasher

The handle for my dishwasher has been broken for several years but still worked if I pushed just the right way on it. I thought it was going to be an expensive and tedious project so I've been putting it off for a long, long time. I finally decided to try it myself, versus using a repairperson. I watched the video on this site and thought, hey, I can do that! I borrowed my boyfriend's torx screwdriver set to remove the screws around the door and pulled out the latch assembly (didn't disconnect, just looked at it) and put it all back together until I the part came in. Part came in soon after and I went back through the same steps. The other reviews are correct. It's really tough to get the latch assembly disconnected from the cable things (sorry! I'm not a dishwasher tech-savvy person!) but once those were free, the new one slid into place with no problems and I reapplied the screws around the door and voila! It works great! I do recommend you watch the video ENTIRELY before working on anything AND when removing the latch assembly, remember which set of cables detached from which side - very important when reassembling. Also, disconnect the power to the dishwasher before starting. Luckily I have a switch on the wall to control that. Happy repairs to you!
