Door latch broke/ wouldn't close properly

Very easy do it yourself. Cut the power off to the dishwasher. Open the dishwasher door. Unscrew the corner screws of the door cover. (About nine screws. You may need to use a nut driver or allen wrench. You can elect to take off the entire cover or leave it on. I had enough room to leave it on. The latch assembly sits on top of the door mount. It comes right out. Use a screwdriver to remove the latch assembly from the two electrical connectors. Be gentle with these connectors. This is where you may need to remove the entire cover, just to give yourself more elbow room to work. Replace the old assembly with the new one. (Note: you have to replace the entire assembly even if just the door latch is broken.) Remount the assembly to the fixed mount, close and screw the cover to the door and your done. I ordered the part on Thursday, received it the next day and installed in less than thirty minutes. And the part was a perfect match.

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 :)

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.

Replace Door Latch

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.

First I hit the breaker box cut the power to my dishwasher. Put my drill on the lowest rpm setting, because the internal case is plastic. This is important even though this is on the outside of the rubber gaskets. Then star T20 screws take them out there are two where the handle is to secure the handle into the door. Since all that was broken was the handle. on the new part I loosened up the switches and pulled them out of the broken piece, as well as the new part. Removed the broken pieces from the inside door. Then this is when it gets tricky putting the old switches into the new plastic handle, there is a button that has to be pushed in, it's super small you can use a small screwdriver or a bic pen, then they clip in. Replace the door screws very slowly you are going to have to pull the plastic housing towards the hole. Get them all in place before tightening to avoid cracks. Then power on and wash some dishes.

I viewed the video of the repair. I found removing all the connections inside the door wasn't necessary. Just remove the wires at the door handle assemble. Be sure to unplug it before touching any wires inside. The door handle wires are hot all the time. I placed the wires on the new handle assemble and placed the handle on the pivots and through the opening. I placed the inside cover backing onto the door and placed the screw's in the holes. I snugged the screws in reverse order as I removed them. 5 minute repair. The parts came quickly as well. I was down for 3 days. Thank you PartSelect.com .

Latch handle was broken, but Dishwasher still worked

I read the installation instruction from other postings, Followed what others have done, BANG! Piece of cake! The only problem I had was the bag in which the part came in was sealed and missing a micro switch, and a broken pin. But the door holds the switch in place and I did not want the hassle of sending it back. If it would not have worked, then I would have. I highly recommend these guys for parts! They have all the hard to find parts, and FAST SHIPPING!
