This part senses when the door is closed so the cycle can start.
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:
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
Removed the inside door cover.Next remove door handle/latch/switch assy. Replace assy, replace covers. Done. Door spring linkage, pull out dishwasher to access sides. Insert linkage into spring hook, and install hook onto dishwasher bracket. Or just watch the video.
I turned off the circuit breaker to the dishwasher. Next, I removed the inside door cover using a torx set (T-20) on 7 screws holding the panel on the door. Then I removed a couple of other snap on covers to get to the door latch assembly. I was able to determine that I had one out of two micro switchs bad (there was no mechanical clicking sound when I pushed on the switch). Replacing the one switch made the job so easy.
By troubleshooting the problem noticed the problem was with the door switch and holder assembly. One of the switches was worn out and the holder asembly was cracked. I removed 7 T20 screws found on the inside of the door,removed a black cover that was in there and under was the problem. I removed and replaced the door switches and holder assembly.Thank you!
