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.

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).

What I though would be a big ordeal, turned out to be a simple fix with the help of this website! I had a handle that would not work anymore and so looked up the make of the dishwasher and found the latch assembly part right away. I looked at the online video and pictures and it was really quite simple to do. Common sense told me to turn off the power to the dishwasher first and I did so at the circuit breaker. I have a electrical tool that tells me if power is flowing through a wire by making a loud beeping sound and I double checked to make sure the power was off. Then I took out the star shaped screws in the dishwasher plastic panel using a socket screw driver set I had (which happened to have the right attachment) Then, I saw the latch assembly which came off easily after removing the 2 screws holding it in place. The latch assembly had 2 wires attached on each side to the switches. I used a skinny screw driver to gently push back the plastic levers holding the switches in place and they slid off the old assembly. Then, having the old assembly in hand, I compared it to the online version and it matched exactly, so I ordered it. I took 2 days to arrive which was awesome. This was routine shipping. The rest was easy. I simply used the old switches still attached to the wires and slid them onto the new latch assembly after removing the new switches. I kept the old ones in case I need them later. I put everything back in place and the screws back in and turned on the power. It closed perfectly and worked perfectly! This was a piece of cake and I saved over $100 I am sure it would have cost to have someone come out.

I watched your "how to video" and dug right in. No real skill involved once you see how to do it. Think it took me 15 -20 minutes.ust have saved $100 dollars on the service charge and repair markup on the part.

The part arrived by Fed EX ground the next day. I removed 11 screws from inside the door, lifted up the panel, lifted out the old latch, unplugged two wire connectors, reconnected the two wire sets to the new part, layed it back into the door and reassembled with the 11 screws. The repair was very easy if you have the correct screw driver.

It was my good fortune to find PartSelect.Com while searching for information regarding a repair. Not only did PartSelect have the needed part at a reasonable price but the web sites video on how to effect the repair was excellent. The part itself was delivered in record time and the repair itself performed in less than half an hour. This is the best repair assistance I've encountered in the past 50 years. It's a web site I'll keep available for the future.

Monday morning, and the dishwasher handle broke - oh my!! I didn't want to call a repairman, so headed to google. I easily found the part I needed at Partselect, and the bonus of a video on how to replace the handle/latch assembly. I placed the order on Monday, and received the part on Wednesday - wow!! The repair was easy - the video gives great confidence. I really liked the savings involved by NOT having to call a repairman. Thanks. Mike

My Maytag dishwasher is 6yrs old and the handle used to open/close the door broke and was just flopping around in its slot

First off, I'm really glad I found this web site. I watched the video on how to change a broken handle and felt confident I could do it before I ordered the part. The handle came completely assembled and was honestly quite easy to replace. My door has six sided screw heads so had to find a screwdriver that would work then took about 2 min to unscrew the inside of the door. I then used a little tupperware qt containor to prop the door open while I used a pair of pliers to unplug the electric plugs...they were the hardest thing I had to do to fix my handle. Those things are really hard to get off but after I unhooked them the handle assembly just popped right in, I conneted the plugs back, screwed the back of the door back and wa-la it worked just perfectly! Only took 10 or 15 min...but the video was a great help. I would recommend using their products anytime and will come back to this site if/when I need appliance repair help again. THANK YOU!!

This was a very easy install. I opened the dishwasher door and removed about 11 screws that held the interior panel of the door. Disconnected the wires from the two switches on the old latch and reconnected them to the new latch. Put the new latch and interior door panel in place and put the screws back in. I would like to add that when I received confirmation by email of my order, it also included a link to a video of how to replace the part. You can't ask for much better service than that. Thanks!
