This door latch, used in dishwashers, is located at the top of the door and locks the door shut when the dishwasher is working. If the door will not close or is damaged, changing the latch could be the solution. For this repair, remove all screws from the inner panel, then lift up the inner door panel and hold the door apart. Next, access the latch and pull wires from the switches. Refer to the manual provided by the manufacturer for further instructions and guidance. Remember to unplug the dishwasher from the power source or shut off the house circuit breaker before beginning this installation project.
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:
Turn off the power. Unscrew all the screws around the door. Pull back the door assembly. Unscrew the handle. Unhooked the wires or remove the relay switches from the latch assy. It was a lot easier removing the relay switches from the old handle and swapping them with the new one than removing the wires. Screw the handle back in. Screw the door back together. Very easy and cost effective especially if I had to buy a new dishwasher. Love the diagrams on line!

Ensure to order part # PS1559543, which is the complete assembly although the diagram doesn't show this, and not PS2100626 which doesn't include the handle. The new assembly is a different style than the original therefore you should replace the complete assembly.This was an easy fix. Remove the eleven torque screws on the door and separate the inner door panel enough to remove the old assembly. Remove the wire connections from the door switches, reconnect to the new assembly, and reinstall the assembly and inner door panel.
I removed the screws around the top and halfway down the sides of the inside of the door. I found that you dont have to remove all 10 screws to access the assembly. Reach in and pulled out the assembly, there was enough slack to pull it out above the door. Pull the connectors off and slide the new ones on. Set the new assembly back in place, insert the 2 top screws first, and then the rest. That was it...very simple to change.
Removed all the screws holding the inside panel of the door to the door itself. Lifted out the old broken door latch. Pulled the wire clips from the 2 switches located on either side if the door Latch assembly. This is a bit difficult. You have to keep working the wire clips back & forth; Up & down until the clips are free from the switch metal contacts. Reinstall the wire clips on the new door Latch assembly making sure you attach the black wires and white wires on the same side of the new latch assembly as on the one removed. Replace the new latch assembly aligning the mounting holes on the door with the new latch holes. Replace the inside panel aligning the holes and replace the screws. The screws were the star head type so you need a special driver bit. I used the box the latch came in the prop up the inside door panel while I worked.
First, shut off the circuit that the dishwasher is on. Remove the 10 - 12 screws that secures the inside waterproof panel to the door. There are two electrical connections are either side of the handle (latch assembly) that need to be removed. No need to disconnect any other connections or reservoirs. The handle comes right out. Seat the new one in door front opening. Reconnect the electrical leads and reseat the interior panel. I would put in the 2 screws are either side of the handle first; then the 2 at the bottom on either side and then the remaining. This is a very easy DIY job.
After receiving the latch assembly, which arrived rather quickly, I found the handle itself was not enclosed in the package. Therefore this repair was delayed and after several calls to the 1-800 number I was informed the company had discontinued the distrubution of the handle. They offered a full refund, however I'm still waiting for the return labels so as to ship the latch back.Now on the brighter side, the company representative put me in touch with a local distributor that did carry the latch/handle assembly as one piece and for a lot less money. For those who are attempting the repair, don't worry, It was very simple. Just remove hex screws, lift the inside panel, unplug the two connectors and insert the new assemply.Must say my wife was very happy to have the dishwasher up and running again.Good luck !
After only 2 years, the Amana dishwasher door began to stick severely. If finally stuck so bad that I had to break the handle to get the door open. The replacement latch and handle fit perfectly and it only took a few minutes to get the screws off of the inner door panel to access the broken latch.
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.
I removed the screws that hold the cover on the dishwasher door. I disconnected the wires from the old latch assembly and connected them to the new latch assembly. I replaced the door cover and replaced the screws.
Removed inside cover.removed part. disconnected switches.plugged wires onto new part.placed part in.put inside cover on and screwed down. Note: be careful of the bottom of the inside cover.
removed inside door panel 12 screws. Removed and replaced latch assembly, installed inner door panel
It was very simple and easy. I opened the panel inside the door; total of 8-10 screews. The latch has two electrical connections and switches. The replacement part I got came with an extra set of switches. Replacing the switches needed an electrical tool which I don't have so I decided to keep the old ones. It is quite easy to take out the switches and replace the latch. I should have taken out the power; but I did not. I was just careful handling the wires et al; no big deal either. My dishwasher is working fine now. I was able to fix it within $40 and 1 hour of effort. Any technician would have cost me atleast couple of hundred bucks + parts etc.
I removed the screws from inner door panel.The 2 top screws also hold the latch assembly in place.I then lifted the panel, removed latch assembly, unplugged the 2 wires ,then installed new part in reverse order. Reinstalled screws in inner panel. Oh yes,first turn off power first at breaker box.
It took about 30 minutes and I just removed the old one and put in the new one. Very simple. Thank you so very much for the quick delivery and communication.
The part was great! It was like a cartridge that plugs into the appropriate slots and done! So glad I didn't call a repair man to do this. Anyone that is considering fixing their dishwasher should check out doing it themselves. Thanks
