The repair was simple. Remove panel. Pull off connectors using a flat head screwdriver to pry off. Reconnect. The video on Partselect site on how to replace the part was good but not accurate for the handle I replaced. Unfortunately, the handle was not the problem. If your door handle seems to be working and it will not start - no lights on the panel, try the control panel/dashboard.

Latch was broken and wouldn't operate.

Watched the video. Unscrewed the door. Detached the part. Attached the new one, really easy after seeing the video. Screwed the door back together. Ooh and don't forget to turn off the power before beginning!

Door latch was worn out, was still closing but it was only a matter of time.

Unscrewed the 10 screws to reveal the inside of the door, removed old assembly, popped in new one. Really. It was that easy, and the new one seems quite a bit sturdier than the old one was. Very happy with this repair.

I removed the front panel and the old handle came out easily. The only out-of-ordinary issue I had was that the wired contacts (the new handle assembly came with new contacts) wouldn't detach from the wires, so I took the new contacts off the new latch and used the old contacts with the new handle, and it worked fine.

This is a weak point in this model. This order marks the third time I've had to replace the part. Thank goodness it is a simple fix and doesn't break the bank. Not a bad trade off I suppose for nearly 10 years of trouble free service (less the handle). The following is a letter I sent to Customer Service: - I placed my order yesterday and had no expectation of my parts arrival until next week. Much to my surprise it arrived at my door today, one day after placing my order, fantastic! The part fit easily and if had I had questions on its fitment you have videos to assist me. Now that's watching out for your customers. I was very impressed by the service at partselect.

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!

Latch was broken and wouldn't keep the door closed.

Take all the screws out of the inside door panel and save in a cup. Two (2) of the screws on center and directly behind latch have the dual function of restraining the latch in place. The switch comes right out. The 2 micro switches (one on each side of the sssembly) were fine and they last forever. Besides, they are permanently wired because of detents on their spaded terminals. Instead of replacing the 2 existing micro switches, I unlocked them from thier mounts on the sides of the old switch and installed them on the new switch. The process took less than ten minutes.

The new latched arrived in just one day. I removed the 11 (T-20) screws that hold the plastic inner liner to the outer sheet metal of the door. The latch was easy to access. I removed the two connectors (one at a time, so that I was sure that I re-installed them in the correct direction and on the correct sides of the latch). I then installed the new latch, put the door halves back together, and re-installed the 11 (T-20) screws. It was an easy 1/2 hour installation.

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!
