With the dishwasher door open and horizontal, remove 10 screws with torx driver that secure the inner door liner. Once that is done, gently lift the inner liner a few inches to expose the handle mechanism and lift the old handle mechanism to remove. There should be enough length in the connection cables to allow you to work out side the inner liner. Remove the two connections, one on either side, to the safety switches and discard the old handle mechanism. On the new mechanism, reconnect the connections to both safety switches and place the new mechanism in the opening of the door. Replace the inner liner, ensuring all holes line up and replace the 10 screws that secure it.

Took out all the screws to remove the inside door panel. Two of these screws held in the latch assembly. The hardest part was separating the switches on the old assembly from the stab on connectors. Done easily with needle nose pliers. Switch goes in and two of the inner panel screws hold it in place and the rest go in effortlessly! Job done!!

Revised part design has a steel pivot pin instead of plastic nubs on the plastic handle. This is a very easy fix requiring only a "star" type screwdriver.

I removed the insde panel (11 screws), lifted the old handle assembly out, disconnected the 2 wiring harnesses, installed the wires on the new part, installed the part on the door and replaced the panel and screws. Easiest repair that I have ever done on an appliance.

Tried replacing the control panel as I had done before. Still did not work - then thought perhaps the switches on the handle - ordered the wrong handle piece - then went for the TCO(thermal cut off) internal fuse. Ordered that part and replaced it quickly - dishwasher works great!

Latch handle broken

Shut off the power. Opened dishwasher door fully and removed 11 (T-20) TORX screws around outside edge. Lifted the inside panel up carefully just enough to get at the assembly. Unplugged the 2 connectors at the latch assembly contact switches . Removed old assembly. Reinstall the 2 connectors on new assembly and then put assembly in place. Reinstall screws. Note: looks like the 5 top screws are just slightly longer that the ones that go down the side. Reconnect power.
It took very little time to order replacement parts from partselect.com. The schematics made it simple to identify exactly the parts I needed.
The parts arrived promptly, but I had a question about the part.
Sent an email, and they were extremely quick to respond. Answered my questions and sent me a new part.
Again arriving promptly. It fit perfectly, and installation was easy. Highly recommend partselect.com Thanks.

Handle Broken on Dishwasher

  • Customer: stephanie from fort mill, SC

The handle for my dishwasher has been broken for several years but still worked if I pushed just the right way on it. I thought it was going to be an expensive and tedious project so I've been putting it off for a long, long time. I finally decided to try it myself, versus using a repairperson. I watched the video on this site and thought, hey, I can do that! I borrowed my boyfriend's torx screwdriver set to remove the screws around the door and pulled out the latch assembly (didn't disconnect, just looked at it) and put it all back together until I the part came in. Part came in soon after and I went back through the same steps. The other reviews are correct. It's really tough to get the latch assembly disconnected from the cable things (sorry! I'm not a dishwasher tech-savvy person!) but once those were free, the new one slid into place with no problems and I reapplied the screws around the door and voila! It works great! I do recommend you watch the video ENTIRELY before working on anything AND when removing the latch assembly, remember which set of cables detached from which side - very important when reassembling. Also, disconnect the power to the dishwasher before starting. Luckily I have a switch on the wall to control that. Happy repairs to 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!
