I saw an online video that showed taking the inside door panel off, removing the wiring from the latch and then replacing the latch. It looked simple and was simple. Luckily, I had a set of so-called "security" bits, which were required to get the door panel off. I had no trouble replacing the latch assembly except the wires to the two switches were very tight. It looked like the factory had squirted some adhesive into the connectors after assembly. I was able to get them off after a brief struggle and had no problems putting them back on the new switches. The latch assembly fit perfectly, which surprised me. My only disappointment was the latch assembly fit a lot of brands, indicating that there is nothing special about Maytag anymore. Too bad. They used to have good products that were unique for their quality. One last comment: Be sure to turn off the circuit breaker feeding the dishwasher or disconnecting its plug. This is the only safe way to work on it.

Took the old one out and put the new one in. Biggest part of the job was removing all the screws that held the back of the door in place.

The door opened by pulling on the broken handle. I then removed all screws on the inside of the door. Carefully separated the two door panels, removed the old part and pushed in the new part. Replaced all screws and was finished in 15 minutes.

There's nothing to it, and all anyone needs to do is follow the instructions others have given. The job would have taken less than 15 minutes, but the handle and latch assembly doesn't screw into the door. It slipped down, and I tightened all the screws before I noticed, so I had to remove the door panel by taking out all the screws (11 as I recall) again. The new assembly works much better than the original! I used an electric screw driver with a hex bit.

I followed the instructions on the video. It was very easy. I could have done it without help but it would have taken longer and I wouldn't have been as confident. Anyone, literally anyone can do this if they watch the video. The only difficulty was removing the electrical connections. That required a pair of pliers. The old handle just pivots out and the new one goes in just as easily.

I read the reviews and procedures at PartSelect and was able to complete the task in 10 minutes. I unscrewed the hex screws, pulled off the door backing, pulled out the old handle assembly, disconnected the wires to the old handle assembly switches, put the new assembly in and connected the wires. Then I screwed the hex screws back on securing the backing to the door and it was good to go.
