First I turned off electricity to the dishwasher.I then removed screws from inside the door.Lifted the latch assembly out and carefully unplugged each side,remembering which wire and plug belongs on which side. Plugged into new latch assembly,andput back in door. Then replaced all the screws on the inside of the door,starting with the ones that go through the latch first. It took me longer to write this than it took to do it! Turn electricity back on and you are done.
Had called several repair services and was quoted $150 plus part. So I watched instruction video and read other user instructions, and decided I could do it myself. Ordered the latch assembly with handle, and replacement of the entire unit was very simple. I'm a 74-year-old female and completed the repair in less than 20 minutes, with no help.
My repair started by finding the right size torks tip. Then removing the inside cover. Propping the cover up so as not fall down. Then removing the old switch and replacing it with the new one. Reassembly of the inside cover required some fixing of two screw holes that were srtipped out. After that it was all back together and works perfect.
Removed all screws from inner panel, Disconnected 2 electric switchs. Removed assembly and ordered new part.
i took all the screws off the inner door panel then i unplug the 2 wirers then i took the new one and pluged the 2 wirers in then i put the door panel in place then i screwed all the screws back in place thats it all done in 10 mins
The video instructions were very clear and easy to follow. After turning off the power I removed all the screws and lifted the panel. As instructed I removed the electric connectors with a flat head screwdriver and reattached them to the new door latch assembly, screwed the panel back to the door and turned on the power. The new door latch seems to be a little sturdier than the original one, hopefully it will last longer. I didn't think it was going to be this easy. I haven't run the dishwasher yet,but I'm sure it will work fine.
Remove torx tip screws from inside door panel located along the outside rim. Pulled door latch out (don't for get the power must be off). The switch pins are very hard to get off for such a small part(they just pull out, Still very hard). plug in conectors to new switch,Found it easy to mark top of each switch with a marker so they will not get put on backwards allowing dishwasher to run with the door open. set door latch back in place push front panel back to door and install all screws
I turned off the power to the dishwasher. Removed screws from inner door. Removed the two wire groups, black and white, from origional door latch unit, installed new latch unit, reconnected wire groups, replaced inner door screws, restored power. The whole process was very fast and easy. I saved alot on the repair.
Removed the screws holding inner door panel to door. Two of the screws hold the latch assembly also. Unplugged the wiring from the assembly then plugged them to the new assembly. Reattached inner panel to door. Easy as 1, 2, 3.
Cut the power to the appliance, removed screws in the inside side of the door, which released the "Handle & Door Latch Complete Assembly with Switches". removed the conections to the switches, and reconected them to the new part. Then placed it insuide the door where the other one was and bolted it back together.
Removed inner panel from door. Put new handle in place. Switched wires to new handle. Replaced inner door panel.
The repair went very well. The new latch was exactly the same as the broken one. I removed 9 torx screws, dropped the front, unpluged the door switches and installed the new latch. Time??? Well, I think that it took me longer to locate my torx tool than it did to install the new part. The total time was 15 to 20 minutes.
Open door take all scews off inside panel lift up handle is right there. Take out unplug two connectors, reattachto new handle, put back togather.
Remove 11 screws holding cover to door, split cover from door, remove latch assembly, obtain new part and reassemble. No problems. New part is improved so hinge should never break. Satisfied 100%
