AFTER REPLACING THE DOOR FOAM STRIP AND THE SOAP DISH GROMMET I STILL HAD THE WATER LEAKAGE AT THE BOTTOM OF THE DOOR, IN FACT A BIT MORE LEAKAGE. THEN I REPLACED THE FOAM INSULATOR STRIP ON THE INNER DOOR. STILL HAD THE LEAKAGE! I OPENED THE DOOR AFTER THE WATER FINISHED THE FILL CYCLE AND NOTICED THE WATER LEVEL WAS UNUSUALLY HIGH. APPARENTLY THE WATER FLOAT WAS PARTIALLY STUCK ALLOWING AN OVER FILL. I PUSHED ON THE FLOAT DOWNWARD A FEW TIMES AND REMOVED SOME OF THE WATER AND RE-RAN THE WASHER. THE LEAK WAS REDUCED TO A FEW DROPS. REMOVED THE FLOAT AND SOAKED IT IN VINEGAR TO CLEAN IT AND THIS CURED THE PROBLEM.

I opened the dishwasher door, removed the inside cover of the door held in place by 10 Torx screws. I then simply disconnected the two electronic connectors on either side of the latch assembly, which then lifted right out of place. I then reattached the electrical connectors to my new latch assembly, put it in place, and then reattached the inside door cover using the 10 Torx screws. The whole repair took about 10 minutes. Make sure to disconnect power to the dishwasher prior to the repair, to avoid shocking yourself with the electrical connectors.

The latch on the dishwasher broke and we thought we would have to buy a new one. I figured I couldn't break it any more than it was already broken, so I took the inside panel off to see if I could fix it. Searched the part online and found out the replacement was only $30...MUCH cheaper than a new washer. So I ordered the part, got it THE NEXT DAY, and had it fixed in under 15 minutes! Brilliant!

Removed approximately 12 screws from the back of the door. Two of the screws holding the back of the door also held the door latch assembly. Unplugged the 2 micro-switches from the latch assembly and plugged in the new switches. Replaced the 12 screws in the back of the dishwasher door.

The door latch keeps breaking. This is the second one we have put on. The dishwasher is 7 yrs old.

After ordering the latch handle replacement part, and before I received it, I continued using the dishwasher by placing a chair against the dishwasher door to prevent it opening during the wash cycle. Once started, no automatic "off" would allow you to add more dirty dishes. I placed a towel along the bottom edge to collect any drips, but they were extremely minimal. Once the part arrived, I removed the screws holding the inside plastic lining of the door and noted how the old latch part attached. The old part had to be unplugged which, in theory, looked quite easy, but the prongs of the plug were very, very tight and using much more force than I expected to use, and prying with a pair of pliers, the plug came free. The new part simply was plugged in, white plug matching white and black plug matching black. The latch was held in place with two of the door lining screws used to replace the inner door liner. OK, that seemed too simple--I did not expect it to completely work, but it did. The lighting and automatic off when the door was opened and everything worked just perfect. YEA!

Ordered replacement handle/latch assembly. Received exactly as ordered - on time (2-3 days). Removed inner door panel by removing about 9 (star-type) screws. Disconnected old handle (somewhat difficult..required pliers and screwdriver to pry to connectors free). Installed new handle and reconnected the electrical wires. Re-installed the inner door panel. Done. Took about 10 minutes overall. Washer works perfectly and door is properly sealed.

It took me longer to go buy the torx allen wrench needed to take apart the dishwasher door than to actually do the repair! Basically just unplugged both electrical plugs from the old broken handle, plugged them onto the new handle, screwed the door back together & all was good as new! Thanks to everyone for posting your instructions, reading them before getting the part is why I knew I could do it myself!
