Replacing the door handle latch assembly was VERY EASY!! Saved myself and my parents the extra cost of paying someone to do this repair. Who needs a repairman when you have the internet!?! I just followed the directions on the video and had no problem with it. Thanks for posting the video and delivering the part so quickly!

OMG! Great online company. Local appliance store was going to chare me 50$ and take 4 days to get it for me. I found Part Select through google and for less than half price the same part was delivered to my front door 28 hrs later! That was using the cheapest shipping too! Awsome company!
Removed screws that hold door liner in place. Unplugged switch wires and removed latch assembly. Plugged wires onto new assembly. Installed latch into door. Replaced door liner.
Remove about 10 screws. unplug the microswitches on the handle. plug the wires onto the new handle and reinstall.
The video for this repair was helpful, and the only issue that I had was changing the electric connections that are held on tightly with plastic clips that need to be pried open for removal and replacement. MAKE SURE YOU DISCONNECT POWER AT YOUR FUSE BOX!!
I am very impressed with Partselect.com! Your easy to use website made finding the part easy. THEN your website had detailed photographs of the part on a grid to give me confidence that I had found the correct part.So, part arrives in a couple days and I immediately return to the website to review the how-to video. Removing the old and replacing the new was a breeze. There was no doubt or second-guessing, the website had all the answers. Any more appliance work and I will be back!
I simply followed the instructions on your video repair site!1
remove nine 5/8" long torx head screws, lift out door latch assembly and disconnect spade connectors from 2 switches. This took a little levering from a flat screwdriver. Reverse procedure. Install replacement assembly by inserting spade connector and placing assembly in door. reinstall nine torx screws, two of which hold the reinstalled door latch. Hardest part of this job was to your knees while removing the screws.
Remove door panel, remove old latch, install new latch, replace door panel. Couldn't have been easier.
I opened the front panel with a power screw driver and removed the latch. It had 2 plastic bumps on the handle that had broken off. The PartSelect website showed 3 views of the part so I could verify that it was the right one.I paid $21.17 for the part and $7.49 in shipping. It arrived the next day via FedEx. It was the right part and the dishwasher was out of order for only 30 hours. The new part had the plastic bumps reinforced with steel shafts.Good thing this company has many views of the part so you can be sure it's the right one.Very pleased with the service.
I ordered the door latch assembly for our Maytag dishwasher. The part arrived earlier than promised and was easy to install. Overall, a very positive experience. The replacement only took 20-25 minutes, and I do have two pointers that might shave about five minutes of the job.1. Interior door panel re-installation. When you are reattaching the interior door panel, insert each of the eleven or so Torx screws and leave them all loose until they are all in. There's not a lot of slop in the door alignment, and if you tighten each screw as it goes in, the last two or three may be pretty hard to get inserted. At least that's what happened to me. So I re-loosened all the screws, re-aligned the door panel, and the last few screws went in easily. Just leave them all loose on the first pass.2. Microswitch plug removal. The cable plug connector fits pretty tightly on the two microswitches. I could not unplug mine by hand. I found that using needle nose pliers BETWEEN the switch and copper connector lugs really made it easier. I just slightly depressed the copper tabs, and then pulled the connector plug away from the door latch assembly.Overall - Fast delivery and easy replacement. I'm quite satisfied.
Replaced the door latch. This process was an easy repairjob. My wife did all the repair work while I played a round of golf! I gave her a HUG when I returned home!
Looked part up on this site, ordered at 11:00am, received it next afternoon.Turned electric off, removed the screws on the door with a Torx screwdriver, unplugged the old assembly and installed the new one, put the screws back in and turned on the power.I then ran a rinse to make sure everything worked.Very simple fix.Thanks for a very helpful website.
This is the 4th time the latch broke on our dishwasher. We paid someone the first time, my husband fixed it the other two times, he is out of state so I had to do it this time. I took the screws out of the door and looked inside and saw it would probably be easy. Then when I got the part and put it in, it was beyond easy. The hardest part was to take the plugs off of each side, they were a little stuck and then putting them on the new handle was easy. The door had a place where the part rested and then you put the door back together. Those screws hold in place and it was done. Run down-screws out, plugs off old, plugs on new, set in place, door together, screws in, done. Works beautifully.
Removed the power scource then the torx screws around the inside door liner. Then removed the two wires from each of the two switches on the latch assy. Connected the wires to the new latch assembly and put in place. The screws around the inner door lining hold the unit in place. Easy! Easy!
