Took the screws out that lined the inside of the door around the edge. Then took the 2 screws out that held in the door handle, then removed the wire harness. Then installed new handle by plugging in new harness, screwing the 2 mounting screws in for the handle assembly and screwing all the screws that lined the inside of the door around the edge. And had a happy Wife.

This was the easiest repair I've ever done, I am usually intimidated by appliance repair, but decided to try this one. Very important: turn the power off to the dishwasher at the breaker, there are exposed terminal connections that are easy to touch. The door handle/door latch assembly is held on by the screws that hold the inside of the door in place, so once I took the screws off the inside of the door, the handle and latch were disconnected except for the wires to the switches. There is one switch on each side with a connector to the wires. I found it easier to slide the switches off the old door latch assembly, rather than unhook the wire connectors. I then slid the switches off the new door latch assembly, and slid the old ones with wires attached onto the new assembly. I put the new door latch assembly back on the door, and reattached the inside of the door with the screws. All done, it's as simple as that.

Easy to remove the inner panel, take out the old switch/handle remove the electrical connectors and install the new switch/handle. Took all of about 15 minutes. Everything works great after the replacement. The little video was extremely helpful, but it can be done without the video as it is pretty simple.

Handle Broken, Couldn't Operate Dishwasher

When my wife noticed the door handle on our maytag dishwasher crunched a little and wouldn't turn on anymore, we ordered the handle assembly. I initially removed the inside door cover and disconnected four wire harnesses from various components, the main component being the door handle assembly. As others have written, the hardest part was sliding off the connectors from their spade lugs. I used a flat screwdriver and just gently pried and twisted the screwdriver like a wedge and got them all off. Then I just put back the inside door cover with 2 screws to hold it in place while the part was being shipped. Once the part came in, I think I installed it in less than 5 minutes, reconnected all the other deivices and torxed the 11-12 door panel screws. Dishwasher works like a champ! Thanks. . . Too easy.

The difficulty in the repair was with the electrical connections - they wouldn't come off the old handle, but they went on the new one in seconds - if anyone has a trick for this let us know. The handle works better now than when I first purchased the unit. Thank You for getting it here so quickly(2 days).

We ordered the part from Partselect. It arrived in the mail. We watched the repair video available the site. My husband performed the repair. We turned on the dishwasher and it worked. That simple and that quick and cost far less than calling the repairman.

I could see the break in the handle so I ordered the complete handle and latch assembly. I first called Maytag and they wanted almost twice what PartSelect wanted for the same assembly. I ordered the assembly late in the evening and it arrived the second day from PartSelect. That was with the least expensive shipping rate! I saw previous repairs on PartSelect that stated the connectors are difficult to come off the switches on the assembly. So I re-used the old switches by just holding back two clips and sliding them off the old latch assemby. I slid the new switches off the new latch assembly and slid the old ones on. Without having to disconnect the wires from the switches. The new latch assembly fits exactly in the spot of the old latch assembly. But the new handle on the latch assembly uses a metal pin that the handle pivots on instead of a piece of plastic which the old assembly had and broke.
