Removed rear of front door to access back panel to access two handle screws and replace handle--very easy.
It is an easy repair, but you need the right tools to remove the inside of the dishwasher door (a hex wrench set) and then to remove and replace two screws holding the plastic door handle in place (1/4 inch Allen wrench). Make sure the power is off even for this repair because it can't be done without coming close to electrical elements.
I took the lower pump assembly apart to find the problem. The biggest challenge was figuring out how to remove the cover. In the center, the assembly is held together with a round plastic nut about 1.5 inches in diameter - simply rotate it counter-clockwise to remove. I then removed the pump housing and found the impeller broken in two and the disk that was supposed to be attached to the top of the pump housing broken off. This was causing the noise and greatly reduced efficiency of the pump. I replaced the impeller and upper pump housing (bought the gasket too since it is hard to remove the old one) and put everything back together using the diagrams provided on the site. While many rate this repair as "easy" - it is only after you figure everything out! If you knew exactly what you were doing, the project could be done in 10 minutes. I had to study the diagram and it took me some time to disassemble, figure out what was wrong, read posts, order parts and reassemble. I also replaced the handle which had broken on one side which was simple. Part select is outstanding - I've used this site for my fridge, oven and now dishwasher and have avoided expensive service calls. If you are technically inclined and patient, you can repair your own appliances.
As the screws took a special (non philips) head, I did need to buy a special one in the appropriate size (cell phone photos help!). Then I took off the 8 or so screws inside the front door, removed the two screws for the handle, replaced with new handle and screwed the front door back together. Not hard, would have been faster without the hardware store trip.
Kids blame mom, mom blames cleaning lady. I blame cheap plastic part. ez install. Make your job ez wait for a helper to come home. When you undue 10 screws, second person can hold inner panel and door apart.
This is the second time the door latch on my eight year old Jenn-Air dishwasher was replaced. I removed ithe door panel on the inside of the door by removing ten screws along the perimeter of the inside door panel. This is easy. The hard part is getting to the latch without taking the inside panel off the door. It helps to have another person hold the door as another person prys open the panel. There are two screws holding the latch. Once you unscrew the old latch and screw on the the new one, the hard part is over!
Removed the inside back of the door to gain access to the screws attaching the handle. Replaced the broken handle. Very straightforward.
Removed the odd shaped screws on the back of the front of the dishwasher. Removed the screws from the old handle. Replaced the old handle with the new one. The screws that went into the handle were a bit tricky, but the rest was pretty easy. Be careful of sharp metal edges!
I removed the screws that held the door together then removed the two screw that held the handle onto the latch and replaced the handle and screwed it all back together. Once I got past the initial steps it was simple.
Turn off the power supply to the appliance. There is wiring you could mess up if something goes wrong. Open the door. Remove the four (4) torx head stainless steel screws on each side of the interior door panel. (total of 8). Then remove the two (2) torx head stainless steel screws near the top of the door on either side of the latch. Before you pry the interior door panel off, have handy a non-metallic weight, such as a brick or heavy book.. When you pull the interior door panel loose, the weight difference will cause the springs to pull the door up and closed. The brick will hold it open while you replace the cheap plastic handle. Do not try to fully removal the interior door panel as there are electrical wires attached. Just lien the interior door panel up onto the lower dish tray. You will need a 5/16" hex nut driver to remove the two (2) screws that hold the plastic handle on. Then, just reverse the whole process.
Unscrewed the dishwasher front panel. Took out the broken pieces of the handle and screwed in the new handle. Not hard at all. The website for the replacement part was easy to use & the part arrived quickly. Thanks
I removed the back panel of the door and just removed the nuts on the old broken handle and replaced it with the new h replaced the back panel of the door handle
Removed the screws that held the outside stainless door from the inside stainless door. There were only 10 screws that needed to be removed. Tied the interior door to the upper rack to keep it out of the way. This allowed for removal of the broken handle. There are only two screws that actually hold the handle on. I was disappointed at this point. The mechanism that actually opens the door was not going to stay in place without replacing the broken panel inside. The screws holding the latch mechanism are supposed to screw into a black plastic panel, but the area that they are supposed to go into was broken off, both of them! It is very difficult to tell from the parts selection if I can order the correct part to fix this problem. It appears that I need to spend another $36.00 to correct the problem completely.
At first I snapped the plastic piece together and then tried to put it in the guide rail. That's where the sharp knife came in handy, to pry the piece apart again and start over. It was easy to see how the piece was supposed to go into the end of the rail and snap in place; I just didn't look carefully before I had to backtrack! I haven't yet tried to put in the other pieces we ordered.
