We have a black dishwasher. The old black latch handle was broken, so I couldn't reuse it. But the only colors available for the new assembly were white and bisque. But the bisque handle isn't too objectionable.

Purchased the switsh and handle assembly from parts direct. received it in two days installed it in about 10 minutes. Dishwasher works fine now. Thanks, Marlon V. Columbia, md.
Removed the 11 tork screws,exposed the door latching assembly.Disconnected the wires from the micro switches (2 ea).Replaced the broken latching assembly, Installed new unit & re-attached wires to micro switches.Re-attached door panel and ran dishwasher. Very easy repair
Once disassembly was done, it wasn't that difficult. Had to hand screw everything back,
Turned off power to dishwasher, then I removed inner panel using a torx screwdriver. Then I just removed the old latch / switch and replaced it with the new.
Turned power off at the breaker. Removed nine of the eleven screws that hold the inner door panel to the outer panel leaving the two bottom screws loosened but in place to retain the alignment between the two halves. Separated the two halves at the top by about three inches using folded dish towels to maintain the separation. The entire latch and handle assembly lifts out with the electrical connections in place. Carefully pried the push-on AMP type connectors off with a soft pry tool. Put connectors on the replacement latch switches and dropped the latch and handle back in place. Removed towels, put two door halves back in place, replaced all screws finger tight, assured that the door aligned with the mating face of the dishwasher cabinet (its very twist-able when the screws are loose)carefully tightened a couple of screws, again checking the door alignment with the cabinet and then final tightened the screws. Done
Just took the dishwasher door apart, took out the old latch (handle) assembly and popped in the new one. If a 74-year-old woman can do it, I'm sure about anyone could. Thanks for the good service.
1.Turned off the pwoer to the dishwasher.2.Opened the dishwasher and removed the torx screws holding the back panel of the door. The top center two screw also hold the latch in place.3.Gently opened the back cover about 4 inches.4.Release the two small clips on each side of the latch switches. This releases the complete latch/switch assembly.5.Remove the wires from the switches.(be sure to keep them seprated)5.Replace the complete latch assembly with swithches.6.Plug wires into swithes.7.Replace rear cover.8.Re-install torx screws.9.Turn the power back on and your ready to go.
This was super simple. I unplugged washer, took screws off inside of door. The entire latch assembly unplugs and the new one plugs right in. Put door back on and away you go!
Opened the front panel, cleaned everything, installed the new part and ... the only reason it took me longer (this is the funny part) it's because I forgot to turn on the switch on the wall so, kept working on until my wife remainded me. I recommend your web site for the easy navigation, the great instruction and the fast deliver of the right product.Thank you!
This is the second time in 8 years that the latch handle broke. Its made of plastic and that is obviously why its not very sturdy. Since its a part that is used every time you latch the door shut to do a wash load it could have been better designed.Using a torque screw driver I separated the back inside panel on the door from the front panel. The latch assembly was immediately freed since two of the screws that hold the top of the panel also hold the latch assembly on. I separated the left and right wires from the latch by pulling the wire sockets away from the latch. There are some detents that have to be pushed since they hold the wire caps on. removed the latch assembly and replaced it with the new assembly. Plugged the wire caps back into the new assembly, replaced the rear panel back on to the front panel and screwed all of the perimeter screws back in. when working with the latch assembly use something to keep the front and rear panels separated so that they don't snap shut while your working. Very easy repair and one that can save you a ton of money.
1. Shut off the power. (important!)2. Removed 9 screws from the door panel. Left the bottom 2 in place. There is enough room to access the latch assembly.3. Removed the broken assembly. The microswitch connections were easily removed by inserting the tip of a large scewdriver and carefully rotating it to ease the switch off the prongs.4.Installed the new latch assembly and replaced all the 9 screws.5. Closed the door and reapplied the power. Success!6.Time taken was 10 minutes.The instructions from others with a similar problem were invaluable.
Saveing some money, found part, it came in three days, putting it in was real easy. The black wires are hot,please turn off elec. Before you start. (Boy it stings, if you forget) I feel I saved about $100. 00 By doing it,
Super easy,,, great next day Fed Ex delivery. Need Torx drivers.
Turn off power(curciuit breaker) to dishwasher, Removed screws from around inside door edge, then pulled front away slightly pulled latch assembly out about six inches, disconnected wire connectors from handle asembly, discarded old assembly, attached connectors to new assembly, reinstalled in place, replaced screws, turned power back on, closed door repair complete and works great.
