Easy enough once the repair was diagnosed. I had this problem twice before. Previously I had purchased these switches from Repairclinic.com. The quality of your replacement parts is clearly superior to those that I purchased before. In the future I will be making my repairs through your site. Thanks, Herb Gersenson
Turned off power to the unit for my safety. Unscrewed 7 torx head screws from the inside door panel to expose the switches at the top of the door near handle. removed cover over switches and removed assembly and switches. Replaced same with this part. Re assembled. Switched the breaker back on. Dishwasher works like a charm, wife happy again.
First I removed power to the dishwasher. The inside panel of the dishwasher door is held on with several screws with Phillips heads. Remove those and the panel comes off. There is a silver metal guard that you have to pull off being careful not to tear the insulation that is on the other side. Then there is one hex head screw to take off the handle latch assembly. You remove this assembly and take off the wires to the two switches on each side of the assembly. The replacement part doesn't come with the black plunger that pushes on the switch buttons so you have to remove it from the old assembly. This was the only difficult part, I essentially destroyed the old plastic assembly getting it out. But putting it in the new assembly was easy. Then I attached the wires to the switches in the new part and reassembled everything. Works like a charm now.
Door lockout switch bad. Replaced switch assembly
The repair was very easy. I watched a video on youtube to be sure that I was doing it correctly. I consisted of removing 6 or 7 screws, taking off the cover that houses the electronics, removing a screw from the door latch. The wires were then removed from the old switches and placed on the new ones. We then popped the new switches in the new door assembly and reversed our steps. The hardest part was pulling the wires from the old switches. I was not strong enough to pull one of them off and had to have my neighbor come over to help. Other than that, it was a breeze!
I removed the inner door panel and carefully disconnected the wires. Then i removed the switch. I then reversed the process replacing the new switch carefully connecting the wires and securing the switch. Then I connected the inner door panel and everything worked fine.
Turn off circuit breaker to dishwasher.Remove inner door panel by unscrewing 7 screws. Remove metal strip near top of door and black plastic covering. Unscrew single screw with socket screwdriver. Disconnect black switches from wires and lift out old part. Remove handle latch from old part to insert into new part. Connect new black switches to wires and insert switches into holder. Put new assembled part into door. Reassemble all parts that had been removed. Turn on circuit breaker. Run dishwasher!
Bought the latch and the catch assembly and it did the trick.
After sudden shut off of my dishwasher I was blessed to stumble across Partselect.com. I entered my info and my exact problem w/SOLUTION appeared. I decided to give it a try and it worked. Your website showed me exactly how to replace the door thingy assembly. Thank you sooo much. By removing a few screws I was able to repair my own dishwasher. Never would of dreamed of attempting this without the expert of your site. TFurman Mid-Michigan
I did not need all the parts in this assembly, I only needed one of the two included switches. It is nice to have a spare in stock for when the other one goes bad. I highly recommend disconnecting the power first. I did not, and I received a shock while doing this repair. Open the door. 1) Remove the inside panel of the door by unscrewing the 7 torx screws that hold it on. Set it upright against the counter being careful of the wires that attach the soap dispenser, and being careful not to let the door slam shut while you are working on it (its a little more springy when you take it apart). You will see a metal strip along the top of the door that was held in place by the torx screws, set this aside being careful of the wire that is attached to it. 2) You will see a large black plastic cover on the back of the control panel that covers the electronics, remove it. (you should be able to do this by hand, it is just clipped on there with plastic push tabs) You will now be able to see the latch mechanism with the 2 door switches. 3) Use pliers to pull the 2 wire contacts off of the defective door switch, then remove the switch by hand; it is held in with another plastic push-tab. Insert the new switch, slide the wires back on their respective contacts by hand, and then perform steps 1 and 2 in reverse. I was overjoyed when I got it back together and it worked! I guess that Maytag repairman can keep on sleeping at his desk!
Replaced the door switches and holder assembly. It was broken so was not making a contact even when the door was closed. Now it is making a good contact and working just fine.
looked online for other similar problems isloated the problem,ordered the part. I have to say Parts Select was the best expirence from ordering to shipping. The part arrived a day early, install was a breeze, thanks to online research, works perfect, $24 for part saved me hundreds in buying a new dishwasher!!
First be sure the power to the dishwasher is off. Open dishwasher door and remove the 7 torx-head screws that hold the inner panel to the door. Lift up the inner panel and note that there are wires attached to the rinse agent motor. Remove these wires from the rinse agent motor and set the inner panel aside.With the inner door off, the dishwasher door will not stay down, so place a weight on it near the bottom. (I used a filled gallon plastic bottle.)At the top center of the outer door, find the switch holder assembly. It is held in place by one hex-head screw. Remove the complete assembly and note the position of the old switches and wires. The outer door handle is also part of the assembly. Remove it from the old holder and install it in the new one. Then, install both new switches in the new holder. Disconnect the white wires from the old switch and install on the new one. Do the same with the black wires on the other. Slide the new assembly back into place and secure with the hex head screw.Re-attach the wires to the rinse motor and lower the inner door panel back into place. Secure evenly with the 7 torx screws.Restore power and check operation.
Removed the inside door panel and electrical door switch cover and replaced the door handle switch assembly
