This is a part found in your dishwasher. This part includes the black handle, latch, and 2 switches. This part is a simple on/off mechanism that prohibits the dishwasher from operating when the door is open. NOTE: White handle is no longer available. If you notice any one of these symptoms it could be due to the breakdown of your door handle and latch assembly: your door latch is not operating properly; the door will not shut/open; the touchpad is not responding; the machine will not start or is leaking. All you will need is a 20 torx bit screwdriver. You will need to remove the inner panel to access this part.
This part works with the following brands: Whirlpool, Admiral, Estate, Inglis, Kenmore, KitchenAid, Roper, Maytag, Crosley, Jenn-Air, Hardwick, Magic Chef, Amana, Caloric & Glenwood.
This part fixes the following symptoms:
First, unplug your dishwasher from under the sink. Remove all eleven screws from the inside door panel. Lift door panel up. Old latch should lift right up. use a pair of pliars to grab and squeeze the base of the old metal connectors to pull out. Do not pull on the wires themselves. Plug in the new connectors from the new latch assy, fit into place, replace the inside door panel/screws.

Remove all the screws around the inside panel and separated by size and location. There are two larger screws for the bottom two holes. Marked the electrical connectors for location on the latch assembly. Also marked the top of the two microswitchs for easier reattachment. Removed the microswitchs with the needle-nose pliers and attached to the new assembley. Reattached electrical connectors and the plastic panel.
Removed 10 torx head screws from around perimeter of door (two of these screws hold door latch and handle). Unplug two wires from handle assembly and replace old handle with new. Reinstall 10 perimeter screws and job is complete.
Removed all the screws from the door panel. Removed door handle. Replaced it with new handle. Attached switches but did not turn the power off. Replaced the panel. Everything fitted well and works well.
Removed the old part (about 10 philip head screws).Waited 1 day for the new part.Unplugged the old part and plugged in the new part.Job done.* Partselect was GREAT. They had repair stories that made this job easy (told how to do it). They delivered the part very fast. They were way under priced to other parts places.
Turned of power at the circuit breaker first. Removed the hex nuts from the inside of the door. Latch is loose know and just need to unplug the power cords from both sides. Install new latch by reattaching the two power cords to it and reassemble. Very easy and very fast shipping had part the next day with regular shipping.
Removed the front door cover (held by several screws) Replaced the broken latch with the replacement by reconnecting the switches (one at a time & noting their orientation). Rescrewed the cover. Works like a charm!
Not bad at all. Took inside door panel off. Removed broken part. A little tricky to remove/replace the electric nodes. Decided to use the old ones rather than using the new ones that came with the part. Just easier than removing wires. Put door back together with new handle in place. Good to go...
Looked on line for replacement parts and found this website along with drawings, videos and owners who had the same problems and followed their descriptions on how to fix the different items I had to deal with.
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.
1) power off. 2) remove 10 screws inside panel 3) unplug black and white sockets and remove old latch 4) plug black and white sockets to new latch 5) close panel by aligning the screw holes and replacing all screws 6) turn power on.
The repair was very simple with the parts ordered. I replaced the two electrical connectors from the old latch assembly to the new one. Then I installed the new latch assembly on the dishwasher.
1. Shut off electrical supply to dishwasher. 2. Remove screws holding inside panel of door except for two screws closest to the bottom of the door hinges. This also unfastens the latch assembly. Old latch assembly is now easily assessable by lifting inside door panel enough for easy access of latch assembly. 3. Disconnect the two electrical connections from the old latch assembly. 4. Attach electrical connections to the new latch. 5. Position new latch in handle hole and reattach inside panel of door. 6. Turn on electrical supply to dishwasher.
Removed the torx screws from panel, that exposed the switch, also held on by the same screws. Pulled wire harnesses off of old switch, installed new switch, replace panel. Would advise turning off power. Took about 20 min.
