This is a part found in your dishwasher. 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. If you notice any one of these symptoms it could be due to the breakdown of your door handle and latch assembly: your door latch is not operating properly; the door will not shut/open; the touchpad is not responding; the machine will not start or is leaking. All you will need is a 20 torx bit screwdriver. You will need to remove the inner panel to access this part.
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:
Removed 11 torx screws, seperated outer door skin from inside door skin, removed old handle, disconnected two wire plugs, plugged new latch assembly into appropriate harnesses and re-attached inner/outer door skins and was done. Very simple!

All that was needed to do was to loosen the screws that holds the cover on the door, disconnect the switch and replace with new latch assembly. My thoughts is that the latch should have never been made of plastic since there is so much heat during the drying cycle and over time the heat causes the latch to become brittle and break.
open door, unscrew screws around edge, separate inner door from outer, remove connectors and old latch, plug in new latch, screw doors back together. I also had to replace control panel because plastic fittings were broken there also. Easy repair job.
On a Saturday my wife set the dishwasher to wash. The door handle had not properly shut and we discovered the dishes had not been washed. After the threat of handwashing and realizing that the latch assembly wouldn't engage, I decided to take apart the inside front cover and look over the problem. Screws easily came out and inside cover lifted up but not off since it was connected to the handle assembly. Realized the plastic outside handle was broken and wouldn't allow the locking mechanism to engage. Went on PartsSelect.com, found the model and ordered the new handle. I paid the lower shipping costs but the new part arrived very quickly - one day. Relatively easy to assemble. Turn off power, take out inside door screws, disconnect handle assembly. This was the hardest part, required pliers to pull the wires off (note: mark connection sides for reassembly). Installed new handle, wire connections easily seated, put back three screws, turned on power and verified dishwasher would run, installed remaining screws and set dishwasher on. Took about 15 minutes and the part was a perfect fit.
I removed the screws around the inside of the dishwasher then disassembled the old latch assembly. This part was a little hard just because I had to get some needlenose pliers to pull it apart. The new latch assembly was better made and slid right into place. I screwed the inner door back into place and it took a few minutes for the dishwasher to start up. Once it did it has run great ever since! This has been a great site to have as being a single mom, budget is tight and to pay a $75 service fee is out of the question.
Removed 12 screws holding down the interior door. Pried interior door off. Removed old handle assembly. Pulled electric leads off of old relays and put on new relays. Inserted the assembly into the door and positioned lining up the screw holes. Screwed interior door panel back on. Things to watch for. The stainless steel interior door panel is very sharp. I cut my thumb deeply when trying to separate the interior door panel from the door. I suggest you wear kevlar gloves when doing this or just be very careful. Also the electric leads are on very tightly. I had to use a pliers to get them off of the old relays. The new assembly must be lined up with the screw holes before screwing the interior door panel back on. Very simple repair.
I switched off the circuit breaker to my dishwasher. I removed all the screws from the hatch on the inside of the door with the star-shaped allen wrench. I lifted the hatch off the inside of the door and removed the old latch assembly. I had to remove the switches from both sides of the new assembly and use the old switches on the old assembly. That way I didn't have to rewire the new assembly's switches. I inserted the new latch assembly and reset the hatch over the top of the assembly. Then I screwed the hatch back to the door and turned on the circuit. Simple.
Took the screws out along the inside panel of the door, unpluged the electrical connectors, removed the old part, plugged the connectors onto the new part, set in place, put the door liner back in place, and replaced the screws. Took about 5 minutes, after my wife had been complaining about it for three weeks. Should have ordered sooner!
We took the inner door panel off (about 12 screws), then took the 2 sensors off the old latch and put them on the new one then reassembled the door. The only problem I have now is that once I empty the dishwasher the sensor doesn't re-set to show the dishes are no longer clean.
First, I was blown away by the speed at which the part arrived. Kudos! The quality is exceptional. The repair itself is extremely straightforward. If you are not the handy type, it's still simple, but please shut off the breaker to ensure no power is going to the dishwasher.I used a power screwdriver fitted with a T-20 Torx bit and unscrewed all the screws holding the inner door liner on. The handle is held in place by the center two screws at the top of the door. Once the screws were removed, I propped the inner panel up with a short PVC tube (anything non-conductive and about 6" long will work fine). I pulled the old handle out, noting which color wires went to which side of the handle. Note the power connectors are firmly attached due to the inward angle of the power leads on the switch. This makes them seem difficult to remove. They are not. Do NOT use pliers or other tools, you risk crushing the power connectors! Firmly grasp the connector and pull straight back, wiggling it slightly if needed. When the connector is free, immediately attach it to the correct side of the new handle. Unless you've shut the power off, these leads are LIVE. Pay attention to what you're doing. Once both connectors have been transferred to the new handle, position the handle correctly, ensuring the screw holes line up with the inner panel. Insert these two screws first but do not snug them down. Insert the rest of the screws, ensuring the inner panel is properly seated and all the screws line up correctly and are not cross-threaded. Tighten down all the screws and you're back in business.My wife and I have both noted, as others here have, that this replacement handle feels significantly better than the original.The repair is very straightforward, quick, and easy. Enjoy!
Easiest repair I've done and I'm not a real handy guy. I removed all the screws around the frame, disconnected the two wires.. making sure electricity turned off. inserted the new piece and voila.. after replacing all the screws it fit fine and worked like a charm. And besides the price was right ant thedelivery service outstanding! On my list for any further parts. Thank you.
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!
Removed the eleven torx t 20 screws from the inner door panel, which when lifted up ,exposed the door latching mechanism. Removed 4 wire clips, removed old latych assy. installed new assy. using reverse order.( very simple )
i unscrewed the torx screws and removed the inside panel. The latch and handle was loose so i just unpluged it and plug the new one up. Then i just put the panel back on.
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!
