Turned off the power to the dishwasher. Removed approximately eight screws to remove the plastic inner door cover to access the door handle assembly. (two of the top screws held the door handle assembly in place) I removed two electrical plugs, removed the old door latch and replaced with the new one, plugged the two electrical plugs onto the new latch assembly, placed it into the top of the inside door, replaced the plastic inner door cover, replaced the screws, turned the power on, loaded the dishwasher and did a load of dishes. Super easy.

My husband watched the video which was great it gave step by step instructions. It took my husband less than 30 minutes to change out the part. Now my dishwasher is back in perfect condition. We have ordered several parts from Parts Select for different appliances and have never been disappointed. Affordable prices, good deliver time and easy installation instructions.

Removed screws on the inside of the dishwasher door revealing broken part. Used schematic diagrams on the web site to identify and order the part. The old part was easily removed and replaced just by slipping off a couple of wires and slipping the new ones back on. They were a little difficult to pull loose, but I was prepared for that from reading a previous review on the Parts Select website. This gave me the confidence to keep pulling until I got them loose.

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.
