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:
Easiest repair ever! 11 sized T20 screws hold the plastic to the door. Remove those and the handle just sits there. Disconnect the leads from the old and attach to the new. Total repair time under 10 minutes, and I'm NOT a handy guy.

removed the screws that held the inner panel. removed the handle from its electrical connectors (2) reinstalled new unit and works like new.
In less than 5 minutes we took the screws out, fixed the latch and had it back together again. The amazing part of the story is the perfect diagrams and helpful instructions from Part Select. I ordered the part one day and by noon the next day the dishwasher was fixed!
Latch assembly came in a matter of days. Screwed it in and voila! good as new.
Simply unscrewed the door and plugged in the new parts. Very quick, very easy, saved us hundreds on a new dishwasher.
PartSelect web-page for this model listed the handle as the most often ordered part. It arrived the next day after the order. It was necessary to remove about a dozen Torx screws to remove the back from the door. The power was turned off at the breaker. Two electrical fittings were removed from the broken handle and placed on the new one, and the part was put into position and the door back screws reinserted. I was fortunate to have the appropriate Torx driver and suggest that PartSelect offer such an unusual tool with the part.
Removed the inter door panel replaced broken handle put panel back washed dishes
Luckily the door opened one last time. Remove torx screws on the inside. Spread panel open to gain access to handle. Removed handle because it's already loose from removing torx screws for panel. Electrical wire connectors were extremely tight. Used pliers to remove connections there are 2.Reverse procedure for installation.
Removed inside door panel, handle assembly was then free to move. Unpluged both switches attached to handle assembly. Plugged in new switches and positioned new handle assembly. Replaced inside door panel and screwed into place. Closed door. it works. job done.
Open front removed all the star screws. Took the old switch unplugged the wiring one at a time to put on new switches. Placed the new switch back and installed all screws. Using a drill with the star tool made it go faster. Total time 9 mins
I removed the screws from the inside of the dishwasher door and removed the handle. You have to unplug the handle from the door assembly. When I got the new part I plugged in the two plugs, aligned the cover of the door and replaced the screws. It works great and it was super easy!
I found this website and it easily helped me find the part needed. I ordered it using standard shipping and it arrived the next day!! After reading a few hints like taking note how you plug it back in I installed the part and it was back up and running. Easy and quick, thank you part select!!
First, I had to purchase a small socket set that had the piece needed to remove the screws from the inside panel of the dishwasher. I didn't cost much. After removing the screws, I disconnected the old door latch/handle, but had to leave the old leads in place because I couldn't remove them. I replaced the old latch/handle with the new one, replaced the inside panel, and tried it out. The new latch/handle worked great. The replacement time was under 20 minutes (struggling with the old leads). Very happy with the outcome, though. Thanks.
Went to the hardware store and bought a T-20 torx tip and then unscrewed the plastic on the inside of the door, unplugged the dishwasher and replaced the latch assembly. This is an electrical part and it is essential to disconnect the power. I would never buy this dishwasher again. The latch is not something that should break.
Removed screws to inside door panel. Remove screws from top part of panel.Replaced door handle and put back together.
