This replacement part is a door handle and latch assembly for a dishwasher. The latch keeps the appliance door closed while it is running, and prohibits the dishwasher from starting when the door is open. Depending on your model, you will need to remove approximately eleven screws to remove the inner panel and access the latch assembly. The latch assembly is connected by two wiring harnesses that are nearly identical, so it is recommended to make note of where each harness goes before continuing with the repair. You will need a Torx screwdriver to complete the repair. Disconnect the dishwasher from the power source before beginning this repair.
This part works with the following brands: Whirlpool, Admiral, Estate, Inglis, Kenmore, KitchenAid, Roper, Maytag, Crosley, Jenn-Air, Hardwick, Magic Chef, Amana, Caloric & Glenwood.
This part fixes the following symptoms:
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.
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.
Turned power off to device. Removed all of the torx srews on inside of door. Latch assembly rest between inside and outside door and comes loose once door is unscrewed. Initially tried to repair broken latch, but was unsuccessful. So I ordered latch assembly. Unplugged wire connectors...make sure you match the sides of the wire connectors when installing new assembly. Replace door and restore power.
I simply decided what I needed to do, what had to be repaired and/or replaced, ordered the part required and with a simple screwdriver opened the front panel (after first shutting off the electricity), took out the broken part...in this case the whole handle and door latch assembly, put the new one in and 'TA-DA'...all done. I refastened the panel in place and it only took 12 minutes for the whole job. Not bad for a 70 year old widow...
First off, turn off the breaker to the unit. Then remove all the torx screws holding the inside of the door to the door assembly. Unplug both wiring harnesses from the latch assembly. Remove the latch assembly, and put the new one in place. Plug the two wiring harnesses back into the new latch. Replace the panel and rescrew all the screws back in. Test the unit, and when it works do a happy litlle dance.
First, turn off power to the dishwasher since you will be exposing and possibly coming in contact with electronics. I removed the screws that hold the inner door panel to the outer door panel. Then, I removed the latch assemble by unplugging the wires at the harness on either side of the latch assembly. I plugged the wires into the new assembly, seated it in the proper place on the door, and reattached the inner and outer door panels. The new part fit perfectly and feels like it is of higher quality than the original part it replaced.
