This part includes the black handle, latch and 2 switches. This part is a simple on/off mechanism that prohibits the dishwasher from operating when the door is open.
NOTE: White handle is no longer available.
This part works with the following brands: Whirlpool, Admiral, Estate, Inglis, Kenmore, KitchenAid, Roper, Maytag, Crosley, Jenn-Air, Hardwick, Magic Chef, Amana, Caloric & Glenwood.
This part fixes the following symptoms:
Called a repairman, watched him take apart the base where the filter is. Took about 8 screws.Told him the handle was broken. Asked him what he had to do to take out the handle. He told me all the screws around the inside of the door. Then he told me it was $284.00 to fix it. Thought about buying a new one, then went online to Partsselect.com. Talked with a tech, ordered the filter and the handle. Put the filter in and put back in the 7-8 screws. Then I put in the latch. It plugs into the main board with 2 wires that just slip back in. Took a little to snap the handle into place because I was afraid I would break it, but it's pretty tough. Put back in the screws around the door and it has worked fine since then. Note on screws: They are the funny shaped ones that fit the screwdriver or drill bit in sets that no one thinks they will ever use. By the way the parts cost about $50. with overnight shipping. Saved $230.00 for a half hour of my time.

removed panel inside dishwasher. 11 screws. and removed two connectors. make sure power is off. the two connectors stay hot and got electrocuted twice. real easy
Just followed the instructions from your installation video went well.
Just read the prior comments on your wed site. It was very easy and quick. Had no problems. Saved myself around $150.00 by doing it myself. Thanks for your information, will use you on my next repair
It seemed like a control unit problem to me, something in the board. It was basically a guess,every once in awhile you get lucky. I took off the inner panel for the door (shut power off to unit!) Removed the control board screws, released tabs on harness connector and changed board out. It works fine now. Rather be lucky than good any day.
Discinnect the electrical powen. Took inside door off replaced. Removed the door switch and control panel. Re inaralled the new parts and inside door panel. Real easy.
As I read the previous stories on this part replacement, gave me insight as to what needed to be done. Was quite simple: removed screws from inner lining of door, slightly opened lining from main door to allow me to remove wire connections from the old latch assembly, then reinstalled new latch assembly, realigned the lining to the door and screwed back together.
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.
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. .
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.
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.
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
Was really surprised how fast the part came in the mail. The instructions was so easy to follow to put the part in.thank-you
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.
