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.

I followed the video instructions except I had no idea what tools he was using because he talked so fast, but I figured it out myself. I could not get the guard off but I worked around it. Then I took off the discharge piece. The impeller needed to come off and I unscrewed it but the impeller was stuck tight to the diswasher. It did not slide off like in the video. I ended up having to break up the impeller with pliers until it fell apart enough to take off.That was the only semi difficult part. I replaced impeller. The new screw I ordered did not fit on my machine??? So I used the old one again. I reassembled all and the dishwasher now works good. Still makes a little noise which could be normal. Nothing like it was making.

Door handle had broken from the latch assembly on one side.

After watching the repair video and reading the experiences of other buyers, I felt confident I could make the repair myself. I ordered the needed part and followed the instructions from the video. I made sure the dishwasher was without power before I started. Once I got to the Latch Assembly, I was careful not to press too hard when separating the electrical lines from the assembly. Reassembling in reverse order was easy, and the whole process took less than 30 minutes.

Take out old basket throw it away. Put in new basket. time: 20 seconds. It took longer to open the package. I'm guessing at the brand, and I'm not going to my other house to find out.

After installing a new filter, :( I tried this. I wish I would have done this first since it's way cheaper and easier!!! If your dishwasher slowly starts to decline in its ability to clean the dishes, it's probably this problem.

broken latch

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.

I opened the door of the dishwasher, pulled out the old silverware basket, and then placed the new silverware basket where the old one was. The whole time, I was imagining how much it would be to call up and appliance repair guy and have him do this.

The handle and lock had broken and the door to the dishwasher would no longer stay shut.

Following the instructions of another home repair, we took off the old part and attached the new one. Super easy! We figure it saved us at least $90 for a service call!
