I unplugged the dishwasher under the sink. I opened the dishwasher up and took out the 12 screws holding the inside door facing on. I gently moved the door facing down towards the dishwasher to reveal the door locking mechanism at the top of the door. I unplugged the mechanism and plugged in the new one. I put the door back together the same way I had taken it apart. In all it took about 12 minutes. Works like a charm.

I just followed another persons directions that was in the system already. He had a great idea by taking the new switches out of the new latch and replacing them with the old ones from the bad latch. The old switches are still good and it made for a simple repair. This way you didn't have to disconnect the wire from the switches and now you have two new switches on hand. The old switch had a burnt spot on the connector.

Found the part on Part Select quickly. Ordered the part at about 11am via the internet using regular ground shipping. The part came the next day about noon. The email I received when the part shipped contained a video for part installation. The installation went smooth and quick. I have Part Select in my favorite places for future needs.

Door latch was broken, wouldn't engage door

Turned off circuit breaker to dishwasher. Removed inside door panel using Torx20 driver. Unplugged electrical connectors on either side of latch. Removed latch. Used screwdriver to release the catch on new replacement latch. Installed new latch, reconnected electrical connections, reengaged the latch catch. Put back the inside door - this took a little time to align the screws but once the top corners were in, the rest lined up easily. Turned the circuit breaker back on. Had watched the video and this repair was much easier as the door latch was the simplier type and very easily latch/unlatched prior to and sfter the installation.

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.

The original handle had two metal tabs in the handle assembly where the latch fit in. The replacement part did not have those tabs. Thinking that the wrong part had been packaged in the parts bag, I ordered the part again and followed the instructions in the excellent 'how to' video. Cut the electricity at the breaker panel, opened up the inside panel using a T20 torx head and simply lifted out the old assembly. The handle and holding fixture are pre-assembled; just pull off the old wiring and put on new part one at a time to avoid mixing up. No need to screw in, the handle is held in place by replacing the panel. Turned on the power and sent a load of dishes through a cycle while holding my breath. Worked perfectly. Kind of amused that the bag the replacement part came in was marked 'Made in the USA'. The part inside had a label that read 'Made in Mexico'. A real team effort! Good work, team!

I removed the front panel and the old handle came out easily. The only out-of-ordinary issue I had was that the wired contacts (the new handle assembly came with new contacts) wouldn't detach from the wires, so I took the new contacts off the new latch and used the old contacts with the new handle, and it worked fine.
