Buy the complete handle assembly with the switches. SHUT OFF THE BREAKER TO THE DISHWASHER. Remove inner door assembly with torx screws. Pull off switch wiring tabs and replace on new assembly the same order. Replace inner door cover. Switch breaker back on. Don't try this with live power trust me.

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.

Followed the video with two exception. When re-installing the door panel, I did not tighten the panel screws, but installed all of the screws first and then went back and tightened the screws. I had a little problem aligning the screws initially and this solved that problem. I also found that I did not need to disconnect the other electrical connectors on the front door other than those to the latch itself as there was sufficient room to replace the latch.

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!

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.

After removing the inside panel, the two plug-ins are removed from the old handle. They were very tight, be careful to avoid damaging the plastic. Plug into the new handle, drop in place and replace the inside panel. A video I watched recommended pulling the two plug-ins from the panel. It is not necessary if you have someone hold it apart from the door. Very simple installation, about 10 minutes.

Was easy to repair. Removed all the screws around the inside door panel and the allowed me to disconnect the 4 wires one the switch and reconnect them to the new one. Replaced the panel and all the screws and I was done. Connected the power back to the washer and it worked nice.

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.

Using a *Torx T20 driver, unscrew perimeter retaining screws on inside of door. Hold now-loose door panel up enough to see under it. Use medium sized flat scewdriver to gently pry the wires from the two micro switches (at latch area). mark each wire to show where it goes, (and which way 'round it goes.) This will get them back correctly on the new latch assembly, which comes with new switches. Lift away broken latch assy., which is loose, since it is held in place by two of the panel screws. Install new latch assy. Re-attach marked wires to the two micro switches. Clean any dirt away from panel screw area on door. Open door fully, put panel into place and install the 11 *Torx 20 screws. Have a beverage of your choice!
