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.

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.
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?
