Take all the screws out of the inside door panel and save in a cup. Two (2) of the screws on center and directly behind latch have the dual function of restraining the latch in place. The switch comes right out. The 2 micro switches (one on each side of the sssembly) were fine and they last forever. Besides, they are permanently wired because of detents on their spaded terminals. Instead of replacing the 2 existing micro switches, I unlocked them from thier mounts on the sides of the old switch and installed them on the new switch. The process took less than ten minutes.

The new latched arrived in just one day. I removed the 11 (T-20) screws that hold the plastic inner liner to the outer sheet metal of the door. The latch was easy to access. I removed the two connectors (one at a time, so that I was sure that I re-installed them in the correct direction and on the correct sides of the latch). I then installed the new latch, put the door halves back together, and re-installed the 11 (T-20) screws. It was an easy 1/2 hour installation.

Super easy fix. Remove the inner panel from the dishwasher door using a Torx driver, lift out the old latch assembly, remove the clips from the prongs on the existing handle/latch assembly, press the clips back on to the new assembly, replace new assembly where old assembly was, replace door cover and fasten screws back into place. Make sure you cut the power to the dishwasher before you begin.

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.

I disconnected the power from the dishwasher. I removed the screws from the inside door panel, unplugged two electrical connectors and lifted out the old door latch assembly. I plugged in the new door latch assembly and replaced the screws. I then turned the power back on. Maytag's price was $204. My cost was about $35.
