The latch broke, I had trouble getting to door to open.

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.

Door handle was jammed up and closed very rough.

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

Opening latch assy cracked at the hinge

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.

Broken handle on dishwasher

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!

The door latch broke

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.

Dishwasher wouldn't open. The latch was broken.

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 to
order. I live in Mexico. There's a factory trained technician in town, but no parts. So I ordered the
part, had it shipped to my daughter in CA, and
when I visited I picked up the part and brought it
back. The technician charged 150 pesos. (That's
about $11 usd.) I watched him and realized I could have done it myself. But why bother?

Broken latch

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.

The door release lever broke inside the door.

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!
