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.

Broken door latch

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.

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?
