After you remove the 11 screws in the door the latch and switches come out really easy. The hard part was getting the wires from the 2 switches disconnected. It took some prying from a flat screwdriver to remove them. After that it was pretty easy to put back together.

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!

Unplugged the dishwasher, then I removed all the screws in the door to split the outer and inner panel apart. Then I removed the two door handle wire connection points at the micro switches and removed the old door handle. Installation is just the reverse of this.

Door Latch broken

Removed the 11 torx head screws from the inside door panel. Popped out the handle assembly and pulled very hard and wiggled back and forth on the two electrical connectors to remove them from the switch contacts. Reassembled in opposite order. By the way, the plastic holding the lower part of the handle assembly to the door was also chipped away, so after setting the handle assembly into the slot in the front of the door, I stuffed some styrofoam over the body of the handle assembly so that the inside door panel would hold it tight against the front door panel when screwed together. The new handle assembly has been working fine now for a couple of weeks.

It was a piece of cake..... It took me longer to clean the door panel and seal from the last 6 years than to do the handle. The handle took about 10 minutes. VERY EASY...

I am not what you would call a handy-man type..My wife owns most of our tools. I decided to attempt to try to fix the dishwasher seening it was going to cost me a new dishwasher if anyway. I went online found Parts Select entered the info watch the video ordered the part (which arrived the next day)to my surprise. It was so easy I think next I think I will fix the Pool light that my wife has been nagging me about for the last couple of month...thanks Parts Select. Bruce

Broken Door Handle

Removed all screws except the bottom two, and then propped up the door cover to get at the latch assembly. The assembly lifts out, pull off, with difficulty, the two wire connectors. Plug connectors back into the new latch assembly, sit it back into it's position, put the screws back in and your done. Much easier than I thought it would be. Note: do not put the screws in the soap holder, as they show in the video, if you accidentally spill them out, they can roll down into the bottom of the dishwasher, not good!

Original Door Latch Broken

  • Difficulty: Really Easy

This requires you to disconnect the AC power first. Then I removed inside cover of door, disconnected the [2] electrical switch connectors on the old Latch Assembly reconnected electrical connectors onto new Latch Assembly placed new switch in door and replaced the door cover. Don't make the mistake of ordering the Assembly w/o Handle. For some reason this part is available w/o Handle [no price difference] but my handle could not be transfered to the new Door Latch Assembly that came w/o Handle.

Latch broke and dishwashe would not lock.

Your video with step by step instructions was most helpful. Since we bought the entire latch assembly including the handle, I did not need to remove the handle but only the plug in wire sockets and connect them to the new assembly. The first time I viewed the video I thought the handle had to be removed. In a subsequent viewing I realized it was unnecessary to do that when a complete handle and latch assembly was purchased. Pointing that out might be helpful.
