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.

I followed the advice on the video provided by PartSelect. It was easy to follow and VEERY easy to change out the old handle with the new one! I'd purchase parts from PartSelect again. You just simply remove the screws on the inside of the door unplug the handle from two wires, take out the old handle (it just lies in position) insert the wires into the new handle, place it in the cradle and put the inside of the door back on and tighten the screws. Nothing to it!

handle on diswasher lid cracked - became stuck and it was difficult to open

Once you remove the satinless steels screws that secure the inside plate assembly to the cover - have another person hold it. You will need to renove the terminals fropm the two cherry switchs. Be careful since these switchs are very fragile. i ordered the handle asembly with new switches just in case they did break. Need to remember which set of wires goes where - seprate white and blavck lead assembly. Once you have the wires removed take the new handle assembly and attach the wires in their correcy orentation. Place the handle assmbly back in its location and place the inside cover assembly in place. Line the holes up and secure with the screws.
