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!

Turn off power. Remove 11 screws, raise inter door panel, disconnect the 2 wire harnesses on each side of handle assembly. Compare existing part with replacement part. Install the 2 wire harnesses on each side of the new switch, position door switch in the door recess, close inter door panel, install 11 screws. Close door and check for mechanical operation of new handle. Turn on circuit breaker and test electrical functions. Run load in dishwasher to self assure operation.

First replaced the door seal, that slowed it down substantially, but not totally. Next replaced inner door foam insulation strip and that took care of it, no more leaks. There was some corrosion evident after I scraped off the old strip, sanded that smooth with emery sandpaper and then installed new strip. Job done!

Latch Assembly WITH door Handle

The how-to video was very helpful. Word of caution. If you get the latch assembly WITH the door handle, disregard the first part of the video. I just unscrewed the 10 screws around the door, carefully unplugged the old assembly, plugged in the new one just as it came in, replaced the 10 screws and presto!, I was done. Easier to do than expected. Saved lots of money by doing it myself.

I just opened the package, pulled out the baskets, separated them and put them directly in the dishwasher. The video showed the part and size of the baskets which was very helpful. The delivery was EXCELLENT!!! I would purchase from PartSelect again!

Door had become difficult to open

  • Customer: Martin from Crete, IL
  • Difficulty: Really Easy
  • Time to Complete: 15 - 30 mins
  • Tools Required: Screw drivers
  • 0 of 0 people found this instruction helpful
Turned off power to machine, then used Torx driver to remove 11 screws attaching interior door panel. Lifted door panel for access to latch assembly and pulled out. I used a screw driver to pry the electrical connectors from the switches. After removing some broken handle parts from the interior of the door, the assembly was reverse of disassembly. Don't tighten any of the door panel screws until you have all of them started because a very slight misalignment at one attachment point can propagate to a very big misalignment further on. It's also probably best to install the two center top screws first, since they hold the latch in place. This was by far the easiest appliance repair I've ever had to do, and it was really all due to the fact that the latch comes as a unit replacement. . . switches, handle and latch all together. A straight swap.

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.
