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.
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.

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.
The exterior lift handle had broken on both sides where it rotates and presses against the internal release mechanism. Eleven screws held the door panel together and also the lift handle/latch assembly. The new assembly dropped right into place. But it had microswitches already installed and I wanted to use the old ones since it was very difficult to pull off the wires. To install the old microswitches requires that you hold down each switch button so that the switch will fully clip into place. Next I put all the screws (torx type) back in
First I turned the power off at the elecrical panel. (there are live exposed parts on the inside of the door if you don't turn the power off and they conecet to the handel ) Then I removed the 9 or 10 tork screws that holds the inner part of the door to the outer part of the door. (Screws are on the inside of the door.) When you remove the screws this also losenes the bracet that hold the handle assmbley disconect the wires then put in the new one. the wires are a little hard to disconect. but that is about the worst of it . This part comes with every thing and and is cheper then buying it seperat. Sorry about the spelling. hope this helps
Shut the power down.Removed the screws holding the door plate. Diconnectthe wires from the latch and reverse your steps to assemble.
Layed door flat. Unscrewed 11 screws on the inside of door. Lifted inside cover and pulled power cables from both sides of handle assembly.Pulled old handle out and set new one in. Hooked up both power cables and reset inside cover.Lined up screw holes and tightened. Works perfectly. Very very easy. 10 minutes.
We turned off the electricity to the dishwasher, and used a star-shaped torx screwdriver to remove the screws inside the door. After removing the door panel, we unplugged the two simple electrical plugs from the handle, and the handle assembly came off in one piece. We put the new handle assembly in its place, plugged the two electrical plugs into it (be careful to plug them back exactly the way the old ones were placed), and screwed the door panel back on. Turned the electricity back on, and it worked perfectly! Saved us $200.00, which is the price we were quoted for a repair!
my wife was having problems opening the dishwasher, so i checked it out and noticed the handle was broke were it connects to the latch assembly, so i ordered a new handle got it prompltly and installed it within 10min.
