I called for a Lowes where I purchased the dishwasher was told it was out of warranty, they set up for a repairman to come out and fix it. He came out and told me it would be $190.00 for parts and labor but that didn't include the service call of $60.00 dollars. Total bill would be $250.00, plus it would be another 2 weeks before he would be able to get back because he had to order the part but and get this I would get the part delivered to the house before the two weeks, and that he wouldn't guarantee the part for more then 90 days. I told him no way, so I researched the internet and found this site part cost $25.00 dollars my time about 30 min. SAVINGS of $225.00. The part was pretty easy to install had to take out a few screws around the edge. Only trouble I had was putting in the handle but I figure that out and put everything back together again. I would purchase parts from this company again had it within 2 days, at a very reasonable cost.

After checking the door switch I found the micro switches were working but the unit would not start on the control panel. Thinking the latch was worn, I ordered a replacement. After changing the replacement latch and switches that came with it, the unit would still not start. I checked the switch and it is making contact. I can start the unit after I close the door using the handle of a pair of pliers. So I assume the control board is bad, due to the fact that it will not initialize the control panel until the door is closed. Now I have ordered a control board and will replace...stay tuned!!
1. Turned off power. 2. Unscrewed ten screws holding inside of door in place. 3. Lifted cover enough to access latch - helpful to have someone to hold this while doing the job. 4. Disconnected old latch assembly on each side - this was the hardest part as they were stiff and needed to be pulled hard. 5. Attached new latch assembly. 6. Screwed door panel back on. 7. Switched power back on. So easy and saved about $150. This stuff is NOT HARD and I just wish more people had the gumption to do repairs themselves instead of paying 'experts' to do exactly the same job.
Replase door lach Thang you for the fast respons Peter Hansen
the small plastic part that turns the dishwasher off and on when the door is shut was worn out. It was really easy to change out. I unplugged the power cord and removed the black and white wires. Put in the new switch and it was ready.
Upon noticing that my latch was broken I removed the 10-12 torx scres from the inside of the front panel. After lifting up the inside panel, I removed the two floats from the latch assembly. I did not turn off the power at the breaker but did get a few volts in removing the float switches. When I received my parts, it took about 15 minutes to reattach the handle kit to the front panel and seal up the door. I did turn the power off at the breaker so there was no issue in stalling the wires and float switches to the handle assembly. I di order both the Latch and Latch Assembly that was shown in the picture without the latch. I was happy to see the latch already atteched to the latch assembly and I have sent the latch back for a full refund. Easy assembly and install.
Removed the screws that attach the inside of the door, keeping them in order. Two are longer. The part is loose at that point and the wires un clip with a little pull with a needle nose. Replaced with the new part, re screwed and good as new. oh and turned off the breaker before disassembly.
unscrewed interdoor to expose harness. Replacehandle assembly.Very easy to do and very satisfied with new part. I ordered 2 parts to make sure I had the actual one with door handle release. One of the assemblies came without the actual handle but at least if I have a switch problem I will have the Harness and switch assembly.Happy Camper
the removal of panel was simple, the removal of electrical connections was difficult even with a little wd 40 i was nervous when any metal part is attached to a plastic part. it didn't want to let go but my suggestion is to work the connecter back and forth forward and back to get it started then with a firm grip on the wire harness with pliers pull the two apart with pliers. good luck!!!
removed all the torx screws that hold the inside panel to the door. Removed the latch/switch.[Don't forget to turn off the power] Could not remove the wiring harness from the micro switch so I removed the old micro switches from the old switch and moved them to the new switch, harness and all. repositioned the latch and reattached the panel.there are two latches available. I ordered the wrong one at first. Got the correct one in just two days. Was able to return to wrong one for credit.Great service. Glad I didn't call a repairman.
Matching the part I had in my hand with the picture online was a cinch. Rec'd the latch in a few days, and installed it in minutes. Why did I wait so long to look it up and order? At least the kids think I'm a hero for fixing the dishwasher!
I removed the screws from the door, popped out the broken part, installed the new door latch and replaced the screws. The repair was fast and easy. Reading others comments about how to do the repair here helped a lot. Ordering from this company and finding the correct part couldn't have been easier. I feel fortunate to have stumbled upon this website. Fixing this on my own saved me a lot of money. Just for kicks I checked online with Sears. I found the part but they would not let me order it, I would have to request someone to come out and repair it for me, LOL! Thank you Part Seclect!
After prying open the door i removed the inner skin cover which did provide me access to the latch assy,2 additional screws and it was fixed.This appears to be a problem with this apliance since it has done this before while under warranty
read previous repair reports so that I had a understandingwhat was ahead.Removed the screws and the handle assembly was right there. Had a problem removing a electrical slip connector from a micro-switch(thus the need for the pliers). Reversed order to assemble....working like a champ.DO disconnect the dishwasher from its power source.
Took the door of the dishwasher apart and the replaced the lever assembly. The lever assembly does not come with a door handle, so you have to remove the old door handle from the old lever assembly and install the door handle on the new lever assembly. Installing the handle on the lever assembly was the hardest part, the rest of the installation was easy.
