MAKE SURE ELECTRICITY TO DISHWASHER IS OFF!!! If dishwasher is installed directly wired, TURN OFF THE BREAKER!!! Undo the inside plastic door molding....remove the old latch and install the new one! Easy to install! Wife is very happy!
Removed screws to the door and took out broken handle and replaced it with the new handle. Replaced screws.
Amana itself was the biggest issue, not all screws holding cover matched, must have been assembled on a Friday. The electrical connections were a problem too. Being a built-in I couldn't unplug the unit, never thought about the breaker. I got reminded a couple times they were live, and didn't separate easily. Replacing the cover was much easier, had to reposition it a few times for latch to work freely.
follow instructions from youtube.
unscrewed the door panel, installed new handle. Pretty straight forward.
I removed the 8 or so screws from the inside of the door. I then slightly pulled back the inside panel of the door exposing the black and white wiring connections to the handle. I removed the bad handle with the wires still connected and then disconnected the black and white wires one at a time and connected them to the new handle, making sure the handle was oriented correctly, handle facing outward. I then removed the bad handle. I put the new handle in place and put in the screws half way into the holes that go through the inside panel into the new handle. I then re-installed the screws from the bottom inside of the door going from the left side to the right and then back like you would lace a shoe until all of the screws were in and tightened and later tested the washer successfully.
The repair is extremely simple. Anyone who can use a screwdriver can do it. Watched a video online and it took me less than 30 minutes to fix it once i had the new part. I recommend doing it yourself and saving a lot of time and money.
I unscrewed the screws on the inside door panel with a small star screwdriver, took the old door handle latch assembly out, unplugged the wires from the old assembly, plugged them into the new assembly and set the new assembly in the door. I then realigned the door panel and put the screws back in. simple. I did have to release the latch in the new handle and latch assembly as it came in the open position and had to be released before installation. I used a small flat head screwdriver to lift the latch up and release it from the catch bar.
First of all you need to get the door to open to do the repair. This took some time to get it open because I really didn't want to do more damage. You need to yank the door open by trying to get your hands at the corners and pulling hard. I did this after trying to get a screwdriver into the latch to disengage the hook that holds it closed. It worked when I grabbed the top right corner and pulled. Got lucky.
unscrewed inner door panel, removed latch assembly (wire connectors were corroded a bit so this took the most time) exchanged assembly. NEED TORQUE BIT!
What a simple inexpensive repair. If you have trouble pulling off the electrical conections try inserting a screwdriver to get some leverage. Do not be too forcefull or you may break the connection. This project took a total of 10 minutes tops.
Turned off power removed back of door removed handle disconnected leads replaced
Removed inside door panel; diagnosed problem / part. 5 min.Found PartSelect; ordered part. Part came as expected; installed part / door panel; 10 min. Dishwaher woring as expected!I will say I am a Master Plumber so mech. things are easier for me; but this was a simple repair. I am also wary of part suppliers off of the internet; but this came as advertised.
First of all, Partselect is definately has the cheapest price and quickest processing and shipping that I found. No im not getting paid for this. Anyway, Be sure to kill all power. Pulled the inside cover off, carefully not pulling wires apart. The handle assembly fell to pieces. There are two wire harnesses (minor current)that you need to disconnect and reconnect to new switches. Align mounting holes and insert screws. Replace inside panel and screw tightly and fix is complete.
