After removing the door cover, and unplugging the dishwasher, I detached the 2 electrical connectors, installed them on the new handle / door latch, aligned it, and reinstalled the door. Once I had a few screws in place, I plugged it back in and it was working. I finished reinstalling the remaining screws, and it was set.Simple and saved a lot of money.
turn off electricity, unscrew inside door panel, lift out handle and unhook,then, insert new handle. very simple.
Since the handle replacement seemed a bit trickier, I opted for the complete assembly. Amazingly simple repair. Remove inside front panel by removing 11 screws using allen wrench (torx or star point if you have it, but allen if not), gently pry contacts from old assembly with flat blade screwdriver and push into place on the new one, set assembly in place, replace screws. Done.It couldn't be any easier. PartSelect is great. I've purchased refrigerator icemaker from them in the past and it was easy also. Parts arrived very quickly in both cases. Installation instructions and sometimes videos provided. Highly recommended.
To repair I removed the Torx screws around the inter edge of the door. This also released the part to change. I grabbed the exposed part of the electrical contact with the tip of a pair of needle nose pliers (rather than the electrical plug to remove). Keeping a tight grip, I used the rest of the pliers to push against the plug. This scoots the plug off a little. So I moved where the pliers grip close against the plug again and repeated. you only move a quarter of an inch at a time but it takes very little strength to push the plug off. This happen without damage to the plug. After this I pushed the new plug on. Then I moved tot he second plug. By doing it one at a time, I did not mix up the plugs.
Remove the screws that hold the door panel to the interior. open and remove the old door latch, unplog terminals and install the new latch. nothing to it!
I needed a new latch assy. and the control panel because the mount for the latch on the panel broke. $150 for parts.Just remove the screws from the inside of door. Set panel to the side. Open the controller box to gain access to the electrical ribbon for the control panel.Slide the lock at the connector to release the ribbon.Insert new control panel ribbon then slide the lock on the connector.Put door panel togeather with screws. DONE!
Checked various online sites for repair tips. Shut off the power at the main breaker. Used a star bit in my cordless driver and removed interior portion of door. Marked the wires and removed the old latch. Install new latch and plugged in the wiring. Reinstall the interior portion of door and turned on the power. Done. Very simple repair. Very fast delivery from PartSelect. Thank you!
1. Remove the star head screws on the inside of the door.2. Lift up the inside door panel. You might want to prop this part up with something.3. Remove the electrical connections on each side of the old latch. This latch is not attached with any extra screws as two of the inside door screws are what hold it in place. This will be obvious when you take the door apart.4. I used a broad flat blade screwdriver as a lever to get the electric connectors apart. Some people have said that these were quite difficult to get apart, but I did not have any problem.5. Put the new latch in place and attach the electric connectors on each side. 6. Replace the inside door panel with the removed screws...be careful as these screws are being put into plastic and need to be properly started into the threads.7. Door should work now. I am being extra careful when closing the door now by holding the latch up and gently pushing the door shut, then release the latch handle.Good Luck
I removed the screws with a star bit. I didn't have to take out the last couple of screws. pulled out the old latch unpluged the two wire conections(this was alittle difficult because they were sort of stuck)so I used a pair of pliersa and carefully pulled them off. snapped the new one 's on puthe new latch in place and bada-bing I was done.
I watched the video on how to to do the replacement on a similar part. VERY HELPFUL! But why would any one pay more for the part with out the handle??? I ordered the part, regular shipping and it was here in 2 business days. Then I had to buy a new screw driver for the 11 idiotic screws Maytag uses to hold door panel instead of something normal like a Phillips. That was the most difficult part of the repair. I wiggled the metal prongs loose from the switches and put the new part in. Two screws at top hold the handle in place. Put remaing screws back and Ta Da... Even a blonde woman did it with ease.
opened door; removed 11 screws holding the inside part of the door to the outside of the door. found bad handle ordered part from partselect, got the part next day with no special shipping. unpluged wires from handle, ouch got shocked. forgot to kill the power to the dish washer. plug wires on started all screws tightened all screws closed door and ran short cycle to test. worked perfect. : )
First I located the electric breaker for the dishwasher and manually tripped it to the off position. Then I opened the dishwasher door and removed the eight "torx" screws around the inside door perimeter ( this allows access to the door latch assembly ). I then removed the wire connections that are on the left and right side of the door latch assembly (these are plug in connections but care must be taken to prevent breaking the pins that hold the microswitches in place). With the wires disconnected I discarded the old latch. I then attached the two plug connectors on the new door assembly latch and carefully placed through the door opening and positioned the inside washer door to secure the door latch . I then replaced the eight torx screws and closed / opened the door to verify door latch worked properly. I then reset the electrical breaker and everything works fine now.
Repair was a piece of cake, start to finish was less then 15 minutes. It took longer to find the correct circut breaker to turn off the power to the dishwasher as the previous owner of the home didn't mark the panel box very well. Very pleased with dealing with your company, your website was easy to use, ordering was a breeze, part was delivered quicker then expected, the repair was very easy to complete.
Removed the stainless screws that hold the door and the panel together. Seperate the two,no need to remove or unplug anything else. Unplugged the two connectors on the old latch and plug them on the micro switches on the new latch and handle. Used a large flat blade screw driver to pry the connectors off, they are on real tight. Aleign the latch with the screws/holes in the white panel and put the two back together. Easy!!! Also, thanks to PartSelect for the great service, great parts, and best price ever.GJB
