If the dishwasher will not start or will not close, you may need to replace the door switches and holder assembly, also known as the door latch assembly. The dishwasher will not start if this part is defective. It includes two switches and the holder, this part does not include the handle or screws. Tools needed are T20 torx driver, needle nose pliers, and 1/4 inch nut driver. This is a genuine OEM part that is sourced directly from the manufacturer.

With watching Video on line it was fairly simply, my son knew exactly what to do, it took him about 20 minutes from start to completion and when tested, dishwasher ran great. We have used it six times and have not had a problem. I would highly recommend this part if you are having the same problem. The video was very good.

I determined that the problem was the door switch after disassembling the door and noting a broken electrica switch. After receiving the new part, I replaced the whole door switch assembly, and the dishwasher turns on and works fine.
My husband removed the screws that hold the inside panel in place to expose the contral panel area. He disconnected the wire connections and removed the part to replace. One of the relay housings cracked and he had to glue it back together before he could reassemble the whole thing. I did not include drying time in the repair time estimate. After reassembly, the dishwasher worked like a charm.Many thanks to PartSelect.com and my husband!
I removed the inside panel. This exposed the rear of the control panel. I carefully replaced the defective switch. Only one was bad but of course i replaced both.
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
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.
I was able to determine that it was the latch handle and the door switch that had gone bad. I removed the door paneland replaced the parts. Was very simple to repair.
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.
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.
