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 on the website gave me the confidence to try it myself. I was about to buy a new dishwasher, but thought i would give it a try. I removed the screws from the panel and unclicked the old broken handle assembly and clicked in the new one. I replaced the 7 screws from the panel and turned on the braker and there was light. What a miracle. Took 5 min. I am not a handy man at all, but this was easy.
I followed the guidance of previous posts including watching the tutorial video. (The first half of the video is not relevant if you buy the part that includes the handle. Using a torx bit, which I had, I removed all 11 screws around the interior part of the door and lifted it slightly. The broken door handle part was then easy to remove. I detached the two electrical connectors and attached them to the new part. I then placed the new part where the broken one had been and put back the interior door lining. It took about 15 minutes. I am 82 years old and found this to be an easy, straight forward task; the hard part was getting up and down.
Disconnect service, unscrew inside door cover, remove two wire connections, pull out broken fixture, replace with new one replace plugs and re screw back plate. So easy.
Followed the very good video on the page where I bought the part. It was very very simple! Any Joe Fucko out there could do it... Video was def helpful though.. Thanks!
Followed the video directions. Our new assembly came with the new handle already in place. We just reattached the electrical parts.
Be sure dishwasher is unplugged. Using #15 Torx driver, remove all the screws from the inside of the door. Lift the inside panel up exposing the Latch Assembly away from the door. Unplug the two electrical connections from either side. (May require using a flat-head screwdriver to gently pry the connectors off.) Remember to replace the electrical connectors back on correct sides of the assembly. Place the assembly back into position on the door. Replace the door panel onto inside of the door and finish by putting the screws back into door, tightening only hand firm. (Take care to not over tighten and stripping the threads.) Plug dishwasher back in and job is finished.
First I turned off electricity to the dishwasher.I then removed screws from inside the door.Lifted the latch assembly out and carefully unplugged each side,remembering which wire and plug belongs on which side. Plugged into new latch assembly,andput back in door. Then replaced all the screws on the inside of the door,starting with the ones that go through the latch first. It took me longer to write this than it took to do it! Turn electricity back on and you are done.
Had called several repair services and was quoted $150 plus part. So I watched instruction video and read other user instructions, and decided I could do it myself. Ordered the latch assembly with handle, and replacement of the entire unit was very simple. I'm a 74-year-old female and completed the repair in less than 20 minutes, with no help.
My repair started by finding the right size torks tip. Then removing the inside cover. Propping the cover up so as not fall down. Then removing the old switch and replacing it with the new one. Reassembly of the inside cover required some fixing of two screw holes that were srtipped out. After that it was all back together and works perfect.
Removed all screws from inner panel, Disconnected 2 electric switchs. Removed assembly and ordered new part.
i took all the screws off the inner door panel then i unplug the 2 wirers then i took the new one and pluged the 2 wirers in then i put the door panel in place then i screwed all the screws back in place thats it all done in 10 mins
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.
