The installation of the handle was very simple. I was unable to remove the wires from the old switch, perhaps an extractor was required to unlock them so I left the old switches and the machine is working fine.

Door handle was recessed and difficult to open open.

Nothing to add to other customers' explanations. Except the handles that come with this model are prone to break. Problem was easy to fix and replacement door handle works great.

The only problem was pulling the wire connectors off the switches. They were very tight. Other than that the handle replacement was extremely easy and the new part works great

I followed video instructions on your website. What impressed me most was that the replacement handles were made stronger than the handles that they were replacing. I feel sure that if the dishwashers hold together that the handles will not need to be replaced again. Thank you, Tim

I looked up the model number, found the door mechanism, looked it over and decided it was something I could do. Ordered the part and it arrived the next day. I removed the inside panel, found the switches difficult to release so quickly checked the online repair video and saw they did require a bit of force to remove but I was doing as they showed so went back to it and finished in minutes. It was easier than a door handlle. The only thing some folks might not have is the star driver to remove the screws in the panel. Really appreciate the quick delivery and there was not an expidite charge. I thought it would be a week coming :)

Decided to the open up the inside panel on the door to see if a repair was something I could do before calling a repairman. Noticed the problem was probably the part listed above. went on line to find a part that I thought looked similar to the one I had and discovered PartSelect had just what I needed. When I discovered the video they offered for replacing the part, things became easier. I ordered the part. When it arrived it definitely was the part I needed. However, the part was broken. Customer service was very helpful in replacing the part in a timely manner and the part was installed quite easily with only a screwdriver with a star bit. We are once again washing dishes in a machine. Thanks for the help PartSelect.

I watched the attached video which came with the shipping conformation and followed the suggested steps. From there it went like clock work. I turned the power off, removed the screws, lifted the panel up, disconnected the 4 electrical plugs, took the broken handle assembly out and installed the new one. Connected the 4 plugs, put the panel back into place, installed the screws and closed the door!!!! Works like new.
