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.

Turn off the power, remove the screws holding the inner door liner, unplug the three electrical connections, remove the cap screws holding the handle and switch assembly to the control panel and install the new part. Reassembly was the reverse of this.

Considered calling repairman vs purchasing new...decided to take a look removed roughly 10 screws..saw broken part did online search...did not know where to look for model number (owners manual did not have parts list) web site showed where to look...did not know part name typed door handle... part came up roughly $40 including shipping... arrived in ~3 business days unplugged 2 wires installed entire experience less than 1 hour. This is the way technology is suppossed to work.

Sticking Door

Thought the striker was not matching the door, so tried to adjust it slightly. DO NOT DO THIS - I broke it. MDBH965AWB does not list a striker - Part Number PS1735065 is a suitable replacement. Actual problem turned out to be the black plastic door handle, so purchase the "latch, handle, switches" not just the latch.

The door latch was locked in an open position.

Had two friends do this for me. Was very easy, but some instructions would have been nice, just to reassure them that they were doing it correctly. Was a very easy job and fixed just in time for Thanksgiving dinner. Shipped really fast too.

Turned off the power to the dishwasher. Removed approximately eight screws to remove the plastic inner door cover to access the door handle assembly. (two of the top screws held the door handle assembly in place) I removed two electrical plugs, removed the old door latch and replaced with the new one, plugged the two electrical plugs onto the new latch assembly, placed it into the top of the inside door, replaced the plastic inner door cover, replaced the screws, turned the power on, loaded the dishwasher and did a load of dishes. Super easy.

first, watch the fantastic instructional video. remove all the screws so you can pull the inner door panel. gently unplug the old switches with the pliers. pull the broken handle/parts out. slip the new parts into place as per the video. re-plug in the switches. put the inner door panel back in place. put all the screws back in the door panel. you are done! So simple! BTW: I am a 59 year old female.
