The most difficult part was finding the tool to take out the screws of the door panel. We made an impression of it and took it to Ace Hardware and discovered we need a specialized allen wrench called a torx. After we had that, we took out the screws and the door latch unit was connected in place by two plugs These were a little tough to remove and needed pliers. Then we took the new latch plugged in the two connectors put in place and screwed the door back on. It worked perfectly.

After turning off the power and the water supply, I removed the old valve and replaced it with the new valve. Very simple -- the inlet line to the valve is attached with a hex fitting. The outlet is attached with a spring clamp. There is an electrical connector which powers the solenoid that opens the valve. The connector simply pulls off the old valve and is pushed back onto the new valve. With the power still off, I turned on the water supply to check for leaks. There were no leaks, but to my surprise, water immediately surged through the valve and into the dishwasher! -- Remember, there was no power to operate the solenoid! BAD VALVE? Back to the Internet. So far, I've found no other explanation. HELP!!

Our part was ordered and delivery was rapid. Husband (who is handicapped) pulled chair up to dishwasher and I was his helper. We unscrewed a few screws and pulled out the old handle and installed the new one and put all back together in under 20 minutes. Took a little longer as I had to be taught the LEFTY LUCY - TIGHTY RIGHTY rule.

We had to use force to pull the door open.

Using the "torxdriver", I removed the screws which held inside panel to the door. Once the screws were removed from the door, I lifted and slid the panel from the door. This made the door latch mechanism accessible. I lifted the entire assembly from the door, put the new assembly in place, repositioned the inside door panel and replaced the screws. AS EASY AS ADVERTISED!

This was a simple repair. Make sure the dishwasher is turned off by an external switch or circuit breaker. Use a star head screw driver to remove the screws from the inside of the door. Lift the top side of the door panel and prop it open (don't bother to remove the wires connecting the panel to the door). Lift out the door latch assembly. If possible remove the plugs from the two switches included in the latch assembly. I had trouble with this step, and simply removed the switches by depressing the two plastic tabs that held them in place. I then removed the switches from the replacement latch. Reconnect the old switches to the new latch (or insert the plugs if you succeeded in that step). Lay the new latch back in place, lower the panel and screw it back into place.

Took off the 11 screws holding the inner paner of the door. Plastic parts holding the handle to the door latch broke into many pieces. Disconnected the two electrical connections from the door latch, also labeled them so I would know where to place them on the new latch. Reconnected the electrical connections and put the inner door panel back on. Done

Actually ... I didn't repair the latch, my wife did. We both saw that the latch was broken, but I wanted to buy a new dishwasher or call for a repair guy. My wife said, "Why? We can fix this ourselves." The next thing I knew, my wife was watching You Tube to find out how to repair the latch. Next, my wife looked up the part, found your company on-line, read some reviews and asked me to order it for us. The part literally was here the next day without extra shipping. We were amazed! Everything was installed without a problem, and the latch works fine. Thank you so much: The Rickey Family

I've done this before, so took about 2 minutes. Just take out the old tine pivot that had a broken end and snapped in the new one. Done!
