I was planning to have an appliance repair guy do it. But he didn't show up. So I went down to Home Depot to pick up a Hex screw driver bit. Came back, switch off power at the circuit breaker for the dishwasher, opened up the dishwasher, unscrewed the bolts on the door, removed the connectors from the latch assembly, connected the new one to it, put it in place and bolted down the door cover. The most difficult part was disengaging the connectors. The whole thing including the trip down to Home Depot was less than an hour.

First I removed the screws that held the door panel, then after pulling the door panel up some I removed the latch assy unplugged the latch assy, took the new latch assy plugged it in put door panel back put then screws in and that was the way I replace the latch assy and now my dishwasher works fine.
Removed all screws on inside of dishwasher door. then removed latch assembly. unpluged to two connectors and put them on new. reinstalled all srews on inside of door and project complete.
Remove the cover from inside the door, 11 torx screws. Take off the old latch assembly and handle, replace with the new handle and latch assembly made together now. Replace the 11 torx screws and you're done.
The part was great! It was like a cartridge that plugs into the appropriate slots and done! So glad I didn't call a repair man to do this. Anyone that is considering fixing their dishwasher should check out doing it themselves. Thanks
Open dishwasher, remove inner panel, unplug the two latch switches, insert latch Assy into latch bracket and hold in place as you place inner panel in place. Ensure inner panel holes line up with bracket Assy and install inner panel screws. You will need a T20 torx tip driver available at Sears or any hardware store.
Removed all the screws around the outer portion of dishwasher door. This would be the part of the door facing the dishwasher when the door is closed. When you remove the screws, this will loosen the handle, enabling the handle to be removed and easily replaced.Easy as pie!
removed screws-top & sides. disconected 2 bundle wires, removed old latch assembly. connected new part and closed & replaced screws. could not open door. recheked-found two broken structs. pressed top of door and handle to open. plastic not best material for structs. do not ask for revision. my typing is hunt & peck.
Eazzy! ! !Took off door panel - 3 minutesUnhooked connection (pulled apart two contact points) - 30 secondsConnected two contact points with new handle assembly - 30 secondsPut handle and door latch assembly in place - 5 secondsPut the door panel back in place with screws. 3 minutesReceived kisses and hugs from my wife for being able to do this by myself - time undetermined!
I attached the wires to the new latch and screwed the door panel back together. It only took about 5 minutes. The dishwasher is working great! I saved about $100 doing the repair myself.
I called the 800 number instead of ordering online.The young woman I spoke with was very helpful.Like others, I was confused about which part toorder. I live in Mexico. There's a factory trained technician in town, but no parts. So I ordered thepart, had it shipped to my daughter in CA, andwhen I visited I picked up the part and brought itback. The technician charged 150 pesos. (That'sabout $11 usd.) I watched him and realized I could have done it myself. But why bother?
removed coverpanel with star shaped tip on cordless drill. hardest part was removing the wires from old handle. i had to use 2 pair of pliers to get them disconnected. plugged wires into new doorlatch. set latch in place and reattached coverplate. works like new.
My brother was able to install the part. I am happy to say it works as well as before.I please you delieved my part so quickly. You have good service.
Before starting job found step by step video of repair on You Tube, part was slightly different, but steps were all the same. Removing and replacing all the screws on the door panel took more time then the part it self.
I removed the inner panel on the door by taking out 10 torx head screws and moved it aside without removing any wires. The handle switch assembly was held in place by two of the screws so it was already loose. I slid the connectors (2) off the switch and replaced it with the new one. I moved the switch back in place and put the cover back on with the screws, closed the door and it was fixed!
