Called a repairman and he took the panel off and found that the plastic handle was broken. He reassembled the broken parts, gave me my bill and and it worked for two washings before quiting again. When I tried to call him back he was on vacation for two weeks. So I ordered the part myself for $30 and had it fixed in 15 minutes or less.

Easy fix, the only problem was the plug wires that were attached to microswitches on either side of the latch. The plugs that were connected to them did not come off easy and required two pliers with one of them on the microswitch and the other holding the plug connector and gently but firmly pulling them off. Once they were off, they plug connectors attached easily to new microswitches that came with the new latch.

The push buttons on the door will not activate.

1- replaced accumulator filter and docking station with flappers, the docking station with flappers may not have been necessary? But what the heck, if your into it this far why not. Check out the tech. Video it was helpful. The dishwasher works like new now. 2- the door latch switch was worn out, to replace this part I first unplugged the power cord then removed the 8 screws from the inner panel of the door exposing the door latch assembly. Unplugged the two connectors and installed the new part and reassembled everything, pretty easy! The dishwasher works like new now, and for around $ 102.00 bucks, saved lots of money doing it myself, thank you Parts Select for your help. Carlos, Lancaster, California.

I called a local repair person and he said the cost to fix this would be over $100, he said the part would cost $65. I went online found the part and ordered it. In two days I had the part in my hands! I then watched a video on how to install the handle. The video said it would take about 30 minutes to complete the installation and they were right, in fact it took less than a half hour. I saved myself over $100, didn't have to wait for installation, and got the satisfaction of fixing the dishwasher myself.

The door latch is plastic and it broke free of its mounting.

Very easy. Remove the screws on the back and lift the back up. The handle assembly lifts right out. The only difficult part is removing the electrical connection. I used needle nose pliers to pry them off. Be careful about over tightening the screws in the plastic door.

I watched the video that this site had, which made the installation a breeze! The only suggestion I have is, all I needed was a wheel, but I had to replace the whole assembly. I wouldn't hesitate in using this site again.
