hardest part of the repair was to take out the screws that hols the door together. there are only 2 screws to the handle/lacth assembly and it was a breeze to change it out. the replacement part even came with new switches....wow it was a true bargain i thought.

I shut off the power to the dishwasher. I removed the screws from the panel using a electric drill with a # 25 torks bit. (Faster than a screw driver) The handle was loose and by using a flat head screw driver pried electrical connections off. Connected new handle and latch wiring and put it back in place. Put screws back in panel and was done in less than 30 minutes.Turned power back on and tested.. I viewed the video prior to installation and it was very helpful.

Door had become difficult to open

  • Customer: Martin from Crete IL
  • Difficulty: Really easy

  • Tools Required: Screw drivers

Turned off power to machine, then used Torx driver to remove 11 screws attaching interior door panel. Lifted door panel for access to latch assembly and pulled out. I used a screw driver to pry the electrical connectors from the switches. After removing some broken handle parts from the interior of the door, the assembly was reverse of disassembly. Don't tighten any of the door panel screws until you have all of them started because a very slight misalignment at one attachment point can propagate to a very big misalignment further on. It's also probably best to install the two center top screws first, since they hold the latch in place. This was by far the easiest appliance repair I've ever had to do, and it was really all due to the fact that the latch comes as a unit replacement. . . switches, handle and latch all together. A straight swap.

Open the DW door. Remove 10 3/16 torque head screws (you will need a torque driver) from inside door. Lift front inside of door (you may need someone to hold it up for you). Take a screw driver and gently pry the two wire clips attached to the latch/switch mechanism. Lift out the latch and drop in new latch/switch (it just rests in place). Reconnect wire clips (doesn't make any difference if you mix them up). Replace inside of door and reattach using 10 torque screws removed earlier. After the new switch was installed it worked like new.

Broken Latch Assenbly

Shut Power to the dishwasher. Remove all screws from the inside of the door except the bottom one on each side. Those two should just be loose but not removed. Pull the inside of the door up enough so you can pull out the the latch assembly. Disconnect the two plugs from the switches, connect to the new assembly and re-install. Can use a couple of toothpicks to line up the door panel and latch assembly to make it easier. Replace and tighten all screws.Turn the power back on.

I Googled Maytag dishwasher broken latch and got all kinds of hits. One was for this web site that walked me through what I needed to order. Others were for YouTube videos showing me how to replace the latch and switch. It all looked like something I could do - and it was. The model in the video wasn't exactly the same as my Maytag - but close enough that it was quite easy to figure out. My husband was here but I didn't even need to get him involved. We were looking at the possibility of a new dishwasher and this saved us a lot of money. Thanks.

The repair video helped me a ton. Just unscrew the nuts on the inside of the door, take the handle latch assembly out and replace with the new one. At first I thought it would be tough, but watching the video very easy.No problems with the unit now. Thanks!!!

I watched the repair/installation video that was a part of the initial parts order. Since I ordered the handle and the control as a unit, I only had to open the door panel, unplug the wiring box from the old unit, plug in the new, put the new handle in place and reassemble the door backing.It was easy.
