broken door latch

  • Customer: Joan from fall city WA
  • Difficulty: Really easy
  • Time to Complete: 15 - 30 mins
  • Tools Required: Screw drivers
  • 0 of 0 people found this instruction helpful
Removed screws from door liner. Lifted door liner. Placed handle latch assembly in place. Replaced door liner and replaced screws. Didn't work. Had to call dishwasher repair to come out. Turned out the little tiny pin in the latch assembly was stuck in the off position. Just make sure both pins are sticking out. If yours arrives stuck in the down position, just push on it a few times with a screwdriver to unstick it.

The door latch to the dishwasher broke

  • Customer: John from Weehawken NJ
  • Difficulty: Really easy
  • Time to Complete: 15 - 30 mins
  • Tools Required: Nutdriver, Pliers
  • 0 of 0 people found this instruction helpful
It was very easy. Shut off the electricity to the dishwasher. Take out the screws around the back of the door using a star type bit. The whole handle assembly pulls up. Disconnect the electrical connection with pliers. Reconnect the electrical connection to the new part. Put it in place and put all the screws back in. Turn the electricity on and that's it. This was so much easier than calling the landlord and trying to get him to fix it. The part was about $30 and it arrived the day after I ordered it on line.

I knew I needed a faucet adapter, but thought I could just go to my local home depot and get the part...not so much. After 3 trips and not getting the part I truly needed I ordered the part from partselect. I received it literally the day after I ordered it, screwed in place with no tools, attached the coupler/hoses to the faucet and washed dishes. I wish I would have ordered the part from partselect before even bother with home depot. I would have saved myself a lot of trouble! Extremely happy! Thank you!

Our dishwasher was not heating up to dry dishes

  • Customer: Claude from Helotes TX
  • Difficulty: Easy
  • Time to Complete: 1- 2 hours
  • Tools Required: Nutdriver, Screw drivers, Wrench(Adjustable)
  • 0 of 0 people found this instruction helpful
All steps were easy except the Maytag layout made it hard to get to the fittings to remove and reconnect the water line. After that we just moved the dishwasher from beneath the counter and laid it down on the front. Removing and testing the old heater element was easy. The hardest part of installing the element was the odd clips inside the dishwasher. I need to return the o-ring and nuts because you included them with the heating element.

Broken Dishwasher Switch

  • Customer: John from Highlands Ranch CO
  • Difficulty: Really easy
  • Time to Complete: 15 - 30 mins
  • Tools Required: Screw drivers

The repair went well. Got the part in the mail faster than expected. It took longer to take off the cover to the dishwasher that it did to replace the part. It could not have been simpler. Don't be a stud, be sure to unplug the dishwasher. You will be dealing with exposed conductors.

Plastic handle cracked - Door hard to open

This was a simple repair. Make sure the dishwasher is turned off by an external switch or circuit breaker. Use a star head screw driver to remove the screws from the inside of the door. Lift the top side of the door panel and prop it open (don't bother to remove the wires connecting the panel to the door). Lift out the door latch assembly. If possible remove the plugs from the two switches included in the latch assembly. I had trouble with this step, and simply removed the switches by depressing the two plastic tabs that held them in place. I then removed the switches from the replacement latch. Reconnect the old switches to the new latch (or insert the plugs if you succeeded in that step). Lay the new latch back in place, lower the panel and screw it back into place.

Took off the 11 screws holding the inner paner of the door. Plastic parts holding the handle to the door latch broke into many pieces. Disconnected the two electrical connections from the door latch, also labeled them so I would know where to place them on the new latch. Reconnected the electrical connections and put the inner door panel back on. Done

Actually ... I didn't repair the latch, my wife did. We both saw that the latch was broken, but I wanted to buy a new dishwasher or call for a repair guy. My wife said, "Why? We can fix this ourselves." The next thing I knew, my wife was watching You Tube to find out how to repair the latch. Next, my wife looked up the part, found your company on-line, read some reviews and asked me to order it for us. The part literally was here the next day without extra shipping. We were amazed! Everything was installed without a problem, and the latch works fine. Thank you so much: The Rickey Family
