Dishwasher door latch not working

Removed star screws holding the plastic interior door piece in place. removed old latch assembly. This is the second time I've had to do this, and both times it was difficult to pull the wire harness off of the wide flat brass contacts. I tried removing the contact assemblies boxes and reusing those (which I did last time since I couldn't get the leads out of the wire harness), but the first assembly fell apart. I was finally able to remove the leads from the wire harness with vice grips by holding the wire harness and jiggling the contacts back and forth. I was really afraid that the new contact boxes would come apart, too, but they didn't. I could not get the contacts box to fit back snuggly (I even tried the old one) in their place and the plastic latches/hooks to go back in place. One of the latches/hooks actually broke off. I put the plastic door back back on, the screw holes didn't want to line up without pushing down on the plastic to flatten it out more, but I finally got them all back in. The star screws are easy to strip, so I had to be careful. The new latch assembly works just fine.

Handle broke and controls ceased to function properly

I switched off the breaker to cut the power to the unit, removed all the screws from the interior of the dishwasher door, lifted the door liner. The control assembly was visible. I unseated the existing assembly, disconnected the power coupling and reversed the process with the new assembly. .

Door difficult to open/unlatch, latch sticking

DISCONNECT THE ELECTRICAL POWER BEFORE MAKING ANY REPAIRS! Removed all the screws on the inside door panel but the two bottom screws, just loosen them. Removed the old latch assembly and two electrical plugs. Next install new latch and reinstall electrical plugs. Replace the inside door panel screws. Turn POWER back ON. (ONE NEEDS TORQUE BIT)

Broken door latch

1. Turn of circuit breaker to dishwasher. 2. Remove inner door using star shaped screwdrivers- I bought a set at Home Depot for about $10. 3. I had to use a pair of pliers to detach the electrical plugs to the door latch sensors. 4. Connect plugs to the new sensors on the latch assembly and put the new assembly in place. Don't worry if the small tabs are broken on the control panel- they aren't necessary to hold the latch assembly in place. 5. Replace the inner door and turn the power back on. This took me less than 30 minutes to complete.

Door latch broken

Followed recomendations from other customers comments, especially about not having to remove panel completely. Removed all screws from door panel, just separated the 2 panels enough to reach in and remove old part, then attached new part and reinserted all screws. Took less than 5 minutes. Works great!!

Broken door latch

The repair was simple. We watched a YouTube video to make sure we were doing it correctly. It was as simple as unscrewing the panel, removing the old latch assembly, and connecting the new one. Nothing to it.

Broken dishwasher handle

I had already removed the dishwasher panel to see the broken latch. My husband turned the electric power off, then I pryed off the 2 wiring terminal and pluged in the new latch assembly, layed it in place and replaced the door and screws. But I have to give most of the credit to the video that I watched on your site. Linda

Latch handle failed

I found the repair advice from other posts to be helpful, but I did not expect the difficulty getting the old latch disconnected from the wiring. I can see why one person said to just use the old electrical switches...I tried using pliers, a micro set of screwdrivers, a needlenose, and all I accomplished was breaking both old switches into many small pieces, and one of the electrical prongs from each set of wires refused to disengage. After nearly a half hour of applying brute force, they finally came off, but I was concerned the entire time that I was going to ruin the wiring harness and have to replace that as well.

The door latch on maytag dishwasher broke.

The door latch assembly shipped and arrived in just 2 days and was ready to install. All I had to do was remove the inside panel (11 screws) and swap the latch assembly. There was even a video on the PartSelect's web site that showed how to make the repair. Only needed a star-blade screw driver (which I already had). Very easy.

Broken door handle

The online video was perfect. The instructions were simple, straight forward, and easy to follow. I followed the directions without any problems. However, I didn't realize that I needed a star pattern screw driver to screw the screws on the perimeter of the door. But a very small screw driver worked and I avoided buying a special screw driver. The door latch fit perfectly.

Broken door handle

I was thinking about buying a new dishwasher BUT decided to look into purchasing a replacement handle.I was a bit leery because I feared what would face me once I started the repair. I "Googled" the model number and PartSelect's site came up. Once on their site,it was very easy to locate the part I needed. The short video of how to repair the handle was great and gave me the information and confidence to do the job. I ordered the part and it was delivered two days later using Standard Shipping. Great customer service. I removed the 11 screws with a #20 Torx screwdriver removed the old handle assembly,GENTLY disconnected the wiring harness,installed the new handle complete with switches,replaced the 11 screws and BINGO; done and the dishwasher runs great. NOTE: The video shows replacing just the handle onto the old assembly. I would not recommend doing that.What I did was; purchase the handle and door latch complete assemble with switches which makes for an easy install. The plastic on the the old part was very flimsy, and it cracked when I "gently" removed the wiring harness and the durability on the replacement part was no better. The door handle on my Maytag is the same handle on at least a dozen other dishwashers and the highest percentage of of repair problems. 54% of the repair problems with these dishwashers is the door handle. An obvious design flaw. The instinct with this handle is to reach in and pull.This is what breaks the handle. What has to be done to prevent further damage is; take your fingertips,press up on the handle,which releases the lock, and then reach in and pull forward.
