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.

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.

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.

the repair went very well and the instruction video was very helpful , however, in the video it implies you need to remove the black handle from the switch before installing the switch, I assume this means if the handle is to be replaced by itself/only, otherwise when replacing the entire switch with handle you don't have to remove the black handle before installing, this is not clear in the video

DOOR WOULDN'T LATCH

REPAIR WAS PRETTY EASY AFTER WATCHING THE DO IT YOURSELF VIDEO. IT TOOK US ABOUT 30 MINS TO TAKE DOOR OFF FROM DISHWASHER AND UNHOOK EVERYTHING & INSTALL THE NEW LATCH. HAD A MINOR PROBLEM-- THE DISHWASHER DOOR WAS ABLE TO SHUT & I RAN A CLEAN CYCLE BECAUSE IT HAD NOT BEEN USED IN A COUPLE OF MONTHS. THE NEXT TIME I WENT TO USE IT, THE DOOR WOULD NOT LATCH AGAIN- HAD TO TAKE IT APART AGAIN & RE-DO ALL OF THE STEPS. I THINK THAT IT IS BECAUSE THE ACTUAL PART DOESNT' HAVE IT'S OWN SCREWS- WHEN YOU SCREW THE DOOR BACK ON, THE SAME SCREWS ARE USED & IT WAS LOOSE. ALL IN ALL- I BELIEVE THAT THIS SAVES US A TON OF MONEY &NEXT TIME I NEED TO DO A REPAIR, I WILL ORDER MY PART FROM YOU AGAIN!

Removed all torx screws from inside perimeter of the inner door cover after shutting off power and pulled out the broken door handle, latch assembly with switches. Used the flat screw driver to gently pry up under the two connector switch legs to loosen them. Pulled the connections off and plugged them into the new assembly. Inserted the assembly back into the door, positioned the inner door and fastened with the torx screws. Turned power on, dishwasher fixed as new. The video shown on the site is great for someone with little mechanical skills.
