Followed the suggestions on PartSelect - took off the screws on the door; removed 2 screws on the assembly that held it to the door; disconnected switches (hardest part) - they seem to fuse on(or rust) from the moisture; took the new (much sturdier part than original) assembly and plugged in the switches; set in place; replaced the 2 screws, replaced the screws holding the door panel - Complete - works great! Here we thought we would have to get a new dishwasher!!!!

I originally ordered the incorrect piece via the website, however when calling PartSelect to return the part they informed me that they could help me find the correct piece which they did. The correct piece arrived within 4 days. It was easy to install. The part works well. I'm very happy with the customer service.
Disconnect power, remove inside cover from door, disconnect e-plugs from latch assy., remove latch assy., open cover of black box retaining printed circuit board, unplug e-connections from circuit board, remove Panel Control and replace with new panel, reconnect e-connections to circuit board, replace cover on black box, snap in new latch assy. and connect the two e-plugs to it, put inside door cover back on. Power up dishwasher and test its functions. Done.PS: It wasn't really nessesary to replace the control panel (a $72.00) item, those plastic snap on's are not needed to secure the latch assy. They just hold it in place unil you put the screws back in which secure the inside door cover.
Turn off the DW power (pull the fuse or turn off the circuit breaker) Open the dishwasher door. Remove the torx screws around the periphery of the door inner panel. Lift up the inner panel far enough to get at the door latch. Lift out the entire door latch assembly. There are two wiring connectors attached to microswitches on the latch assemby. Remove the connectors. The connectors were pretty tight, so I needed pliers to pull the connectors off the switches. Discard the old latch. Get the new latch, and plug in the connectors (keep track of which wires go on which side). Lay the latch down in the door so it lines up with the mounting holes. Lay the cover back down, start each of the torx screws into their threaded holes, then tighten them all. Don't over tighten. Turn power back on. Job done. It almost takes as long to type it up as it does to make the repair.
1) Turned off the power2) I removed the screws on the plastic door.3) The latch/handle assembly was right there.4) I noticed that white and black wires fed each side. I noted which side did the black feed and the white feed.5) I took a pair of pliers and held the white wire brackets and pulled the metal parts off. This is where the time took. It took about 2 minutes per side.6) I then slid the new metal parts in the white brackets.7) I screwed it back.8) Turned it back on!9) Works great
This is a simple repair once you conquer the problem of removing the wire clips from the old switches. And conquer I did. All you need are regular and needle nose pliers, and a heavy pot or pan. Start by turning the power off and then remove the screws holding the inner door. Carefully lay the inner door to one side of the outer door and place a heavy pot or pan on the outer door to hold it down. The handle assembly is held on with screws removed from the inner door, so you can now lift it out. Check that there are no small broken pieces anywhere on the door. Use a marker to mark Right and Left on each clip.Then remove each old switch from the old handle assembly by carefully bending the two small clips on each switch back to release it and wiggle it free with the wire clip still attached. The wire clip is actually a one piece plastic cover. Then, do this: grip the old switch with the regular pliers and then slide the unopened point of the needle nose pliers between the switch and the wire clip; there is plenty of room. This will put sufficient pressure on the wire clip to slide it from the switch. Do not grip the wire clip with pliers, it will break. Once off, put the wire clips on the new switches and install the handle. Reinstall the inner door and test the handle. That should do it. A leisurely 20 minute or so repair job.
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.
First thing I did was unplug the dishwasher. Then, I undid all of the screws from inside the dishwasher door. Once I separated the inside from the outside of the door I removed the whole door handle and Latch Assembly. Then I installed the new door handle and Latch Assembly, then but the dishwasher door together replaced all the screws and plugged in the dishwasher and waa laa! All fixed. Door opens and closes like it's suppose to. Thank you.
I removed about 10 screws on the back of the door and the latch came out with the assembly.I then took a pair of pliers to remve the wires from the prongs on the back of the latch.The wires were a little hard to remove because of the age of the dishwasher.The new latch went right on in less than a minute.Relaced the screws and turned the dishwasher on.
Shut off power at circuit breaker unscrew door liner remove old handle install new handle replace door liner turn on power very easy less than 15 minutes total.
remove screws on inside of cover,lift and remove two screws holding handle, unplug wire connection and reverse to install.
Removed the screws on the inside of the door and lifted up the panel. Handle assembly lifted right out.
I removed 11 Torx screws from inside of the door, pulled inside and outside apart just enough to lift out the latch assembly. (It was held in place by 2 of the 11 screws already removed) i Pulled the 2 switch connectors off and left the door open a bit. After some Googling I found the COMPLETE part on your web site for the lowest cost! The picture showed that it even INCLUDED THE NEWER REINFORCED HANDLE. I ordered it on a CC with basic shipping on 10/12 AT 8 PM. It arrived 10/15 and I installed that same day in about 15 minutes. THANK YOU!
Turned off power to unit, removed tork screws on inner door panel, pulled switch/handle out. Pried connector from switches. Plugged switches into new part and reinstalled into door with tork screws. Turned on power. Easiest job I've ever done. Under 15 minutes! Found how-to on your site, big help! Even if you are semi handy it helps to have a reference to go to from other peoples experience on a particular job. Thanks zane wilson lake wales florida
