Broken handle

We couldn't order just the handle - the entire assembly was around $25 - less than a service call. I read beforehand how easy this was, but I couldn't get the old assembly to "unplug" from the existing prongs and wound up just removing the ceramic pieces from the new assembly so I could leave the prongs plugged into the old. Works fine, but still have no idea how to unplug those prongs and it was frustrating to have paid for the new ceramic parts and not be able to use them. Rated it as "easy" instead of "really easy" because of that.

Dishwasher door would not open. Handle appeared broken.

PartSelect web-page for this model listed the handle as the most often ordered part. It arrived the next day after the order. It was necessary to remove about a dozen Torx screws to remove the back from the door. The power was turned off at the breaker. Two electrical fittings were removed from the broken handle and placed on the new one, and the part was put into position and the door back screws reinserted. I was fortunate to have the appropriate Torx driver and suggest that PartSelect offer such an unusual tool with the part.

Door will not open

Luckily the door opened one last time. Remove torx screws on the inside. Spread panel open to gain access to handle. Removed handle because it's already loose from removing torx screws for panel. Electrical wire connectors were extremely tight. Used pliers to remove connections there are 2.
Reverse procedure for installation.

Dishwasher would not turn on because door would not latch

I removed the screws from the inside of the dishwasher door and removed the handle. You have to unplug the handle from the door assembly. When I got the new part I plugged in the two plugs, aligned the cover of the door and replaced the screws. It works great and it was super easy!

Handle broke and made opening dishwasher difficult to open

I found this website and it easily helped me find the part needed. I ordered it using standard shipping and it arrived the next day!! After reading a few hints like taking note how you plug it back in I installed the part and it was back up and running. Easy and quick, thank you part select!!

Customer: Lisa from Cincinnati, OH

Broken latch prevented door from closing properly.

First, I had to purchase a small socket set that had the piece needed to remove the screws from the inside panel of the dishwasher. I didn't cost much. After removing the screws, I disconnected the old door latch/handle, but had to leave the old leads in place because I couldn't remove them. I replaced the old latch/handle with the new one, replaced the inside panel, and tried it out. The new latch/handle worked great. The replacement time was under 20 minutes (struggling with the old leads). Very happy with the outcome, though.

Thanks.

Unable to open dishwasher broken latch

Went to the hardware store and bought a T-20 torx tip and then unscrewed the plastic on the inside of the door, unplugged the dishwasher and replaced the latch assembly. This is an electrical part and it is essential to disconnect the power. I would never buy this dishwasher again. The latch is not something that should break.

Door wouldn't latch

I turned offf the power to the dishwasher, then removed about 10 screws to separate the inner door panel from the outer panel. I disconnected wires from 4 terminals, attached them to the new latch assembly and reinstalled the inner panel. The web site was easy to use, but I had reason to call your service people.The lady I talked with was especially helpful. I have bookmarked your web site and would order again, when necessary.
