Latch broke

I benefited from the stories posted by others (very helpful-thanks!) following what others shared. I called Parts Select to confirm I was on the right track when ordering the part, and they were very helpful. So, basically I took the inside of the door off, disconnected the electrical connections (some said that was the hardest part -- it was), and then reassembled. It went well because of the helpful information posted.

Broken dishwasher handle

Tough part was removing the 12 screws that held the front and back of dishwasher door together "around" the handle while my 2 year old was trying to grab the screws as they hit the floor. Once apart, slid the old assembly with the very broken handle (pretty much shattered) out, had to use pliers to get the electric tabs out of the 'holders'. Put new one in and positioned, then screwed back together. Maybe 20 min, 5 of which was keeping son from stealing screws. Interestingly, this same piece broke about two years ago when it was under a warranty plan. Guy said it would have been an $80 charge plus parts to fix. For as easy as it was, that's theft....

Door latch was broken.

Removed interior panel from door, disconnected two sets of connector wires from door latch switches on both sides, removed interior electric motherboard box and left wires for this connected. This allows you to remove the 4 screws that hold the top control panel and take this out to change the latch on a bench. The reason I did this is to allow me to use the old ABS plastic handle and melt new holders onto the inside of the front control panel assembly, melt black ABS to ABS plastic around the previously broken tabs molded onto the surface of the front control panel. I was going to purchase a new front control panel but there is no need to since it is now repaired. Reinstalled front panel with latch/ switch assembly attached to it, then rescrewed the motherboard control box to the panel, put wire connectors back onto the latch switches, reinstalled the inside panel and put in the screws around it. Works like new now for $25 compared to over $100 it would have cost me.

Plastic latch broke

All that was needed to do was to loosen the screws that holds the cover on the door, disconnect the switch and replace with new latch assembly. My thoughts is that the latch should have never been made of plastic since there is so much heat during the drying cycle and over time the heat causes the latch to become brittle and break.

Latch handle was broken not allowing the diswasher to lock and wash dishes.

On a Saturday my wife set the dishwasher to wash. The door handle had not properly shut and we discovered the dishes had not been washed. After the threat of handwashing and realizing that the latch assembly wouldn't engage, I decided to take apart the inside front cover and look over the problem. Screws easily came out and inside cover lifted up but not off since it was connected to the handle assembly. Realized the plastic outside handle was broken and wouldn't allow the locking mechanism to engage. Went on PartsSelect.com, found the model and ordered the new handle. I paid the lower shipping costs but the new part arrived very quickly - one day. Relatively easy to assemble. Turn off power, take out inside door screws, disconnect handle assembly. This was the hardest part, required pliers to pull the wires off (note: mark connection sides for reassembly). Installed new handle, wire connections easily seated, put back three screws, turned on power and verified dishwasher would run, installed remaining screws and set dishwasher on. Took about 15 minutes and the part was a perfect fit.

Latch broke and dishwasher would not work

I removed the screws around the inside of the dishwasher then disassembled the old latch assembly. This part was a little hard just because I had to get some needlenose pliers to pull it apart. The new latch assembly was better made and slid right into place. I screwed the inner door back into place and it took a few minutes for the dishwasher to start up. Once it did it has run great ever since! This has been a great site to have as being a single mom, budget is tight and to pay a $75 service fee is out of the question.

Handle broken on dishwasher

Removed 12 screws holding down the interior door. Pried interior door off. Removed old handle assembly. Pulled electric leads off of old relays and put on new relays. Inserted the assembly into the door and positioned lining up the screw holes. Screwed interior door panel back on. Things to watch for. The stainless steel interior door panel is very sharp. I cut my thumb deeply when trying to separate the interior door panel from the door. I suggest you wear kevlar gloves when doing this or just be very careful. Also the electric leads are on very tightly. I had to use a pliers to get them off of the old relays. The new assembly must be lined up with the screw holes before screwing the interior door panel back on. Very simple repair.

The latch assembly wears every year.

I switched off the circuit breaker to my dishwasher. I removed all the screws from the hatch on the inside of the door with the star-shaped allen wrench. I lifted the hatch off the inside of the door and removed the old latch assembly. I had to remove the switches from both sides of the new assembly and use the old switches on the old assembly. That way I didn't have to rewire the new assembly's switches. I inserted the new latch assembly and reset the hatch over the top of the assembly. Then I screwed the hatch back to the door and turned on the circuit. Simple.

Plastic latch broke

Took the screws out along the inside panel of the door, unpluged the electrical connectors, removed the old part, plugged the connectors onto the new part, set in place, put the door liner back in place, and replaced the screws. Took about 5 minutes, after my wife had been complaining about it for three weeks. Should have ordered sooner!

The plastic handle broke, door wouldn't open without pulling it hard.

We took the inner door panel off (about 12 screws), then took the 2 sensors off the old latch and put them on the new one then reassembled the door. The only problem I have now is that once I empty the dishwasher the sensor doesn't re-set to show the dishes are no longer clean.

Latch handle broken, miserable to open and close

First, I was blown away by the speed at which the part arrived. Kudos! The quality is exceptional. The repair itself is extremely straightforward. If you are not the handy type, it's still simple, but please shut off the breaker to ensure no power is going to the dishwasher.

I used a power screwdriver fitted with a T-20 Torx bit and unscrewed all the screws holding the inner door liner on. The handle is held in place by the center two screws at the top of the door. Once the screws were removed, I propped the inner panel up with a short PVC tube (anything non-conductive and about 6" long will work fine). I pulled the old handle out, noting which color wires went to which side of the handle. Note the power connectors are firmly attached due to the inward angle of the power leads on the switch. This makes them seem difficult to remove. They are not. Do NOT use pliers or other tools, you risk crushing the power connectors! Firmly grasp the connector and pull straight back, wiggling it slightly if needed. When the connector is free, immediately attach it to the correct side of the new handle. Unless you've shut the power off, these leads are LIVE. Pay attention to what you're doing. Once both connectors have been transferred to the new handle, position the handle correctly, ensuring the screw holes line up with the inner panel. Insert these two screws first but do not snug them down. Insert the rest of the screws, ensuring the inner panel is properly seated and all the screws line up correctly and are not cross-threaded. Tighten down all the screws and you're back in business.

My wife and I have both noted, as others here have, that this replacement handle feels significantly better than the original.

The repair is very straightforward, quick, and easy. Enjoy!
