This part fixes the following symptoms:
Ordered new part(s), parts arrived in a few days, removed the 6 screws holding the control panel cover onto the dishwasher door (requires a torx driver), removed control panel cover (carefully, so as not to break any wires on the wiring harness from the door to the computer board), unscrewed/removed door switch, popped off the the two plastic brackets holding the door handle assembly (door handle, latch bracket, door latch actuator, spring) to the front door, removed the broken handle, installed the new handle, reversed steps, done. Works like a champ. The one thing I did do at the same time is notice that there's only one return spring for the door handle (even though both the handle and latch bracket have hooks for springs on both sides. I suspect this is what caused the door handle to break in the first place (the spring causes uneven tension on the handle, which over time caused the arms on the handle to catch and break). So I also ordered a second spring, and when I attached the new door handle to the latch bracket assembly I also installed return springs on both sides. With even tension, the handle doesn't tend to twist when it raises and lowers the latch, so hopefully won't break again. Just a thought while you have the unit off the dishwasher.

Recoved the screws which secured the handle assembly (approx 8). Removed the old parts and screwed home the new parts and replaced the assembly. Worked perfectly.The hardest thing for me was to decipher the model number as they use '1s' and 'Is' and you can't tell them apart.Also the part diagrams should have each part number listed to make it easier. Took me longer to work out what to order than do the repair.
Partial disassembly determined thar the plastic handle was broken and a tensnioning spring was missing (had fallen out of reach within door) Ordered new replacement parts and received next day. Great delivery service. Installed in short time by removing four screws, disconnecting two wires and reversing procedures to reassemble. Finding parts on line was a great help and the delivery service was great,
removed 6 screws removed upper console of door and swapped out broken handle with new one. installed required spring and closed up console of door. real easy it took less than 15 minutes .
The repair would have been really easy if the parts replaced had come all in one...When you order a replacement handle they do not include the 2 small springs....the springs are a bit hard to get on, but once they were in place everything went well. You need 2 people to assemble it.One to hold the door and the guts of the electronics, and the other to install the handle.
The door catch clearly was not acutating correctly when the door handle was depressed. I removed the 6 screws (star pattern, not phillips) from the top of the door to allow access to the door handle and catch. the door handle is made from a thin and poorly constructed plastic piece with two arms that attach to the body of the latch. The latch has an electrical switch that has two wires attached to it. Note the location of the wires before you disconnect them. remove the latch assembly and door handle together. Remove the damaged door handle. Note where the return springs are located on the handle and latch. Replace the new handle on the latch mechanism, attach the springs, put the complete mechanism in the door and replace the screws. Finding the problem took 5 minutes and the remove of the top of the door. Waited 4 days for the part, 10 minutes to install the new part and back in operation
I removed the upper cover removed the handle assembly found the broken part pried it off and pried the new piece back on. It is a snap fit with plastic to plastic so I hope they hold up.
Unscrewed top 6 screws to pull away panel and replaced handle and attached the springs. Screwed panel back in. Handle is made of plastic, which is why is breaks so easily. Also product numbers are confusing using both ones and the letters I and L.
1) unscrew the top part of the dishwasher which contains the control panel2)remove the spring attached to the latch3)removed the broken latch and replaced it with the new latch and connect the springs to each side of the latch4)attach the panel cover and screw it back together with the 6 screws
removed the top panel (6 screws), popped of the old handle, poppd on the new one, added the springs, and reassambled top panel. The nly thing that would have been easier is if the top panel did not need screws! Took 5 minutes to complete. Good self-service design.
I removed the same six torques screws needed to replace to touch panel. Snapped the new handle in place. Replaced the springs. Reinstalled the touch panel.
My husband took off the old handle, we found the new part, it was delivered within a day and went back in with no difficulty. Easiest repair!
Took the top 6 screws out of the door and removed the top front panel. Saw that the handle was broken and one of the springs had fallen into the door. Ordered the replacement parts (diagrams on the site were great!). Once received, easily replaced the handle and the springs. Tested and everything worked like a champ. It literally could not have been easier.
