Installing dishwasher handle & latch assembly

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.

Internal insert knobs broken from wear and tear

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.

Door would not open

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

The door would not latch

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

Door latch broken

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!

Door latch broken

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.

Broken latch

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...

Locking mechanism broke off

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.

Broken handle

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.
