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.
Part was exact replacement of OEM part. Turn off breaker that powers the dishwasher. Opened dishwasher door and removed 10 screws from the inside of door allowing inner and outer panels of the door to separate. The two screws at the top of door act as the securing point for the door latch assembly. Once they are out you simply use a screwdriver to pry the two female wires of the old part and they will mount to the two male wire clips on replacement part. Once in place, you just return the panels together and then replace the screws that were removed. Lastly, turn power back one and run dishwasher.
I watched the Video and followed it's instructions. I have a nice battery powered screw driver but spent at least 5 minutes finding the proper bit T-20. I chose to separate the wires from the old switch. I did this using a pair of long nose pliers; Inserting both halves of the pliers between the switch and wire block, so that when I opened the pliers the force separated the terminals from the switch, one terminal at a time. (total 4) I was grateful the video mentioned I needed to pop the door catch with a screw driver so that it would be able to snap close when the door was closed. Very necessary.
Unplug power cable. Remove inside door panel screws. Disconnect cables from latch assembly. Remove latch assembly and broken debris from inside door. Connect cables to new latch assembly. Insert this assembly in slot. Reinsert all screws in door. Check for correct operation. Replug power line. Run test. Discard removed parts. Done. Piece of cake.
Read the instructions, followed the easy explanations to put new part on and everything went smooth as silk. I was really surprised. The new part even came with the well-explained way to change the old part with the new. What a concept. Thank you.
