With door open I removed (10) screws to remove the inside panel. The switch just unplugs from two relays and I plugged the new switch in the relays and replaced the inside door panel. That's it.
The price was awesome and the part arrived in less then a week. I will recommend that anyone who needs parts, to buy from this company.
The video instructions were very clear and easy to follow. After turning off the power I removed all the screws and lifted the panel. As instructed I removed the electric connectors with a flat head screwdriver and reattached them to the new door latch assembly, screwed the panel back to the door and turned on the power. The new door latch seems to be a little sturdier than the original one, hopefully it will last longer. I didn't think it was going to be this easy. I haven't run the dishwasher yet,but I'm sure it will work fine.
Remove torx tip screws from inside door panel located along the outside rim. Pulled door latch out (don't for get the power must be off). The switch pins are very hard to get off for such a small part(they just pull out, Still very hard). plug in conectors to new switch,Found it easy to mark top of each switch with a marker so they will not get put on backwards allowing dishwasher to run with the door open. set door latch back in place push front panel back to door and install all screws
I turned off the power to the dishwasher. Removed screws from inner door. Removed the two wire groups, black and white, from origional door latch unit, installed new latch unit, reconnected wire groups, replaced inner door screws, restored power. The whole process was very fast and easy. I saved alot on the repair.
Removed the screws holding inner door panel to door. Two of the screws hold the latch assembly also. Unplugged the wiring from the assembly then plugged them to the new assembly. Reattached inner panel to door. Easy as 1, 2, 3.
I just shut off power at the breaker box, then removed the 11 torx screws around the inside door liner. The hardest part was keeping the door open; the door springs get pretty aggressive after you remove the liner. The handle and latch assembly is basically held in place by two of the screws. I disconnected the two wire connectors, then reconnected the new assembly and set it in place. Put in about half the screws, turned on power and tested the operation. After confirming that the latch released and the machine functioned, I put in the rest of the screws and tightened them gently. Done. Working great now, but I suspect that plastic handle will break again before the machine does.
Cut the power to the appliance, removed screws in the inside side of the door, which released the "Handle & Door Latch Complete Assembly with Switches". removed the conections to the switches, and reconected them to the new part. Then placed it insuide the door where the other one was and bolted it back together.
Removed inner panel from door. Put new handle in place. Switched wires to new handle. Replaced inner door panel.
The repair went very well. The new latch was exactly the same as the broken one. I removed 9 torx screws, dropped the front, unpluged the door switches and installed the new latch. Time??? Well, I think that it took me longer to locate my torx tool than it did to install the new part. The total time was 15 to 20 minutes.
Open door take all scews off inside panel lift up handle is right there. Take out unplug two connectors, reattachto new handle, put back togather.
Partially removed stainless inner part of door by removing 10 screws enabling simple removal of latch assembly. Put new assembly in its place and remounted inner stainless door in reverse order.
Remove 11 screws holding cover to door, split cover from door, remove latch assembly, obtain new part and reassemble. No problems. New part is improved so hinge should never break. Satisfied 100%
approximately 10 screws (torx) to remove, the new handle is built better than the original, plastic reinforced at hinge point with a metal hinge pin... the original had a plastic pin for a hinge... Now better than ever thanks...
