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.
I am 70yo, female, live alone - when 1st encountered problem - called local service company - quoted $172. A friend suggested googling for part - ended up at this site. For $37, including shipping, got the part and a lot of info on their web site to give me the confidence to try the repair myself. Undid all door screws except very bottom 2 by door hinge. Turned off power to dishwasher - easy to see how part would unplug and plug in new part. The part replaced was one unit - used pliers to pull old plug in part apart. Removed that part - took new part and hand pushed new plugs onto tong connections - reset new part - EASY - put screws back in - took more time to take screws out/in the door than to replace broken handle piece. I did use 2 small pieces of old Styrofoam to prop the inner panel away from the outer door to make working easier in the space. VERY VERY EASY - Hope next time I have a repair problem, I remember to go to this site first - could not have been easier. Highly recommend.
Removed door scres, then door cover, found parts to be replaced, desconncted switches, installed and reconnected electrical switches, replacd rhe door cover, and tested theunit. Could not believe that the dishwasher was working like new. And Idid it all by myself! I m very happy with the replacement parts and the easy instructions. Thank you
Took the door apart, identified and removed the broken part, ordered the part, waited for it to arrive, and put everything back together.
1) turn off power to dishwasher 2) Remove 11 No. 20 Torx screws with screwdriver 3) remove electrical connectors from the old mechanism 4) plug connectors into the new mechanism 5) lay new mechanism in place 6) reinsert 11 screws 7) turn power to dishwasher back on. It is a good idea to watch the PartSelect video to get a feel for the job. However the hardest job in the video is switching the handles from 1 mechanism to another, which in my case was not necessary. While the new mechanism in the video is shown with a black handle, my mechanism had a white handle which is what I needed, so this part of the job was not required.
