I opened the dishwasher door, removed the inside cover of the door held in place by 10 Torx screws. I then simply disconnected the two electronic connectors on either side of the latch assembly, which then lifted right out of place. I then reattached the electrical connectors to my new latch assembly, put it in place, and then reattached the inside door cover using the 10 Torx screws. The whole repair took about 10 minutes. Make sure to disconnect power to the dishwasher prior to the repair, to avoid shocking yourself with the electrical connectors.

Unplugged and shut off electrical breaker. Removed inside door panel. Used flat shank to open compartment housing control board. Connected each wiring harness individually from old control board to new control board as I went. At that point, I snapped new control board in place. Tightened door panel. Plugged dishwasher back in.....reset breaker. Works great.

Thank You PartSelect for making this repair project simple and stress free. The exploded diagram of the appliance was clear and consise. The parts list was very helpfull. Showing me which parts were the most replaced gave me the confidence to order, reducing the prospect of having to return items ( always a pain point ). Parts arrived in just a few days. Followed the instructions on the video. Dishwasher was back in operation in no time and passed an overly thourgh dish inspection. Your site is amazing and is on my favorites tool bar. Thanks Agian !!!

After ordering the latch handle replacement part, and before I received it, I continued using the dishwasher by placing a chair against the dishwasher door to prevent it opening during the wash cycle. Once started, no automatic "off" would allow you to add more dirty dishes. I placed a towel along the bottom edge to collect any drips, but they were extremely minimal. Once the part arrived, I removed the screws holding the inside plastic lining of the door and noted how the old latch part attached. The old part had to be unplugged which, in theory, looked quite easy, but the prongs of the plug were very, very tight and using much more force than I expected to use, and prying with a pair of pliers, the plug came free. The new part simply was plugged in, white plug matching white and black plug matching black. The latch was held in place with two of the door lining screws used to replace the inner door liner. OK, that seemed too simple--I did not expect it to completely work, but it did. The lighting and automatic off when the door was opened and everything worked just perfect. YEA!

I opened the door, removed the screws from around the side of the door. Lifted out the old and broken door latch assembly, pulled off the two sets of connecting wires and then reversed the process with the new latch assembly. Done PS, I did this while sitting on a kitchen chair.

There was a tutorial available to me that warned me that this fix wasn't as easy as it looked. If you treasure your dishwasher-you better follow the guide. My washer is old and has given more years than I would expect, so I was a little rough. Since the machine has a one piece shell and rivets rather than screws, I just sheered off the rivet that holds the hoses at the top, making old hose removal possible. If you try to remove the whole shell to get those hoses off----better take the next day off from work.
