Door handle was broken and latch quit working

  • Customer: Lonnie from Springtown TX
  • Difficulty: Really easy

I followed the instructions on the video. It was very easy. I could have done it without help but it would have taken longer and I wouldn't have been as confident. Anyone, literally anyone can do this if they watch the video. The only difficulty was removing the electrical connections. That required a pair of pliers. The old handle just pivots out and the new one goes in just as easily.

The discontinued the latch alone, so you must buy the entire micro-switch and latch assy. You take off the door screws with the Torx driver, prop the inner panel temporarily out of your way, fight the terminal connectors OFF the old micro-switches w/needlenose pliers, slid the new connections ON, lay the assy in it's "slot" (which IS well engineered) carefully replace the inner door panel, start a few screws, make sure it's aligned at EACH screw and tighten. TA-DAH. Did I mention turn the power OFF first?? It may bite ya.

With the door open to the dishwasher I remove the inner cover with the appropriate screw driver. I then removed the two electrical plugs from the latch and lifted it out of the door. The new piece went back in reverse. Took less than 15 minutes.

Door latch was not opening

We could not open the door without "popping" it open. After ordering and receiving the door latch assembly, I removed the inside door panel, unplugged the wiring harness (shut off the electricity first), lifted the door latch assembly out (the handle came out in pieces), unplugged the switches on either side, then reversed the procees with the new part in place. One thing, be sure to order the door latch assembly with the handle. It's worth paying a few dollars more to have everything you need the first time.

The handle broke and was hard to open the door!

After getting out my manual from March, 2005, I found the part and they had it in stock. I watched the video and knew it would be a piece of cake. After ordering it, I went ahead and removed the inside of the door and the parts so all I had to do when the new one arrived was pop it in and put the door back together. In the meantime, I used the dishwasher a my drainer. I don't believe it took more than about 20 minutes total. I'm only 78 years young but I have a lot of mechanical ability! BTW - - regular mail and it was here in 3 days!

Part #PS2180046. Simply watched the video and followed instructions. Luckily I had the special screw bit needed to take the screws off the back door of the diswasher. Other than that it was very simple to do.
