Latch handle broke off and we could barely unlatch door

Remove about 8 torx screws on inside door panel. Prop panel to hold door open. Disconnect power from dishwasher (I did not realize I was getting entire latch assembly including switches). Old latch assembly comes right off since it is secure with panel screws. Using a flat head, carefully pry electrical connectors from switches; I would remove one and immediately connect it on the new assembly so I would not get them mixed up. Reposition new assembly on door. Put panel back in place and replace screws. Door may "pop" when closed but that is just the panel snapping back in place. Restore power to dishwasher. Test door latch. Voila!

The latch handle on my dishwasher broke one night

Ifirst tried to get a replacement from Maytag.com. Bad mistake, all they list are recommended service centers. but my son went on your website and found the part in 30 seconds! So I went ahead and placed the order.
Replacing the handle was real easy. after unplugging the dishwasher, I just removed the 9 or so screws from tthe back cover using a cordless screwdriver. Then i simply transferred the 2 electrical connections from the old handle to the new handle and reattached the back cover. Took less than 5 minutes. Probably saved over a hundred bucks doing it myself since a serviceman would have charged that much to replace the busted handle.
Next time I get another busted appliance, I'll make sure to make your website my first stop for spare parts. Thanks a lot!

Not properly cleaning the dishes.

I removed the upper and lower trays. In the process I broke one of the rail stops. They snap in & out but if your not familiar with how they work it's easy to break one. After removing the trays the docking stations snap out with little effort. The flappers push into the openings on the docking station and then just snap the docking station into place. The door handle broke (cheap plastic) so I replaced the whole assembly. You'll need a #20 torx driver to remove the screws around the inside door panel. Lift the panel up just enough to remove the switch and handle assembly. With a small flat blade screwdriver pry off the electrical connectors. Open the circuit breaker to the dishwasher if you're not comfortable with working on live circuits. Remove and replace the switch assembly, replace the connectors, and replace the screws to the door panel. It's so easy

Door latch handle broke

Unplugged the dishwasher. I used a "star" bit to remove screws on the inner door panel. Two of these screws also held the door latch assembly in place. The new latch assembly came with two microswitches but I had difficulty removing the wires from the old assembly so I unsnapped the old microswitches & put them in place of the new ones. The mounting holes in the new latch assembly lined up perfectly so there was no problem replacing the inner door panel.

Note: I noticed that the design of the new latch was improved over the one I removed. My old latch broke at the plastic pivot point. The new latch was mounted on a metal rod which is substantially stronger.
