CustomerDavid from Syracuse UT

Latch broken on dishwasher door

1. Turned off power to dishwasher at the fuse box.

2. Removed all screws on inside of dishwasher door and had my lovely red head hold open the door cover, so I could see the latch assembly inside the door.

3. Removed old latch assembly and used pliers to remove (pull) connectors from old latch assembly.

4. plugged connectors into new latch assembly and place it in it's proper position.

5. Had my wonderful bride put the door cover down, so I could install the screws.

6. After screws installed I turned on the power and tried the dishwasher. IT WORKED PERFECTLY!!!

Took me about 10 minutes. Most of that time was spent removing the screws and running back an forth between the kitchen and electical panel to turn off and turn on electricity.

New latch assembly < $30.00
New dishwasher > $800.00
Saved > $770.00 and my sanity.
Got to bond with my wife and show her my manly mechanical prowess...Priceless!!!!

CustomerKevin from Iowa City IA

Handle boken loose at the plastic hinge pins

First, I shut off the circuit breaker to the dishwasher and confirmed there was no power.
I then removed all the screws that hole the door together to discover what was the issue. Basically the original handle in this dishwasher was junk . all plastic with plastic hinge spots. All 4 were broken off. I started looking for a replacement handle when I discovered this latch assembly. This a much improved design with a metal rod used to hinge the handle.

I was pleasantly surprised when the part arrived i just a couple days.

I shut off the breaker again and then removed all the door screws and separated the two pieces. The latch assembly is held in place by two of the screws that keep the door together. I disconnected the electrical connections from the old latch with a pliers. After placing the electrical connections to the new latch, I reversed the entire procedure to reassemble the door.

A very simple repair and this latch is better than new.

CustomerJerry from Grove City FL

Broken door latch

I opened the door of the dishwasher and removed the phillips head screws that attach the inner liner to the dishwasher door. Two of the screws that attach the inner panel to the door also serve to hold the door latch in place. So. once the inner door panel was loose the door latch simply needed to have the four wires disconnected from the two microswitches that are a part of the latch assembly. That allowed the old latch assembly to be removed. All that remained was to install the wires to the switch terminals on the new latch assembly (which included new microswitches), set the latch in place, and install the screws that hold the latch and inner door inner in place..

Latch handle broke, so the door would not close

I turned off the breaker, then removed the screws. I replaced the part, and screwed it all back together. Turned on the breaker and it's like new again.

The service company wanted $75 for the part and $125 for the trip charge and labor. $200. I paid just under $30 for the part and it took about 15 minutes of my time.

Broken latch/handle

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!

CustomerMatthew from Wake Forest NC

Dishwasher latch broken

Dishwasher door was open when the latch broke. I removed the screws around the door liner (requires a special "star shaped" screwdriver bit). The old handle was now loose, but attached by wires connected to 2 micro switches. It was easier to remove the micro switches than it was to get the wires off, so I slid the micro switches off the old latch and onto the new, depressing the switch actuators to get them into place on the new latch. Put the latch into place and re-fitted the door liner. Tightened the screws very carefully, especially the ones going into plastic. New latch works better than the old one ever did, even when it was new. Just make sure you have the right screwdriver bit to fit those screws, and be careful not to strip the screw threads out when re-fitting the door liner. Avoid letting the screws cut new threads, make sure they follow the existing threads especially when screwing into plastic.

CustomerKen from Aurora OH

Door latch handle broke

Unplugged the dishwasher. I used a "star" bit to remove screws on the inner door panel. Two of these screws also held the door latch assembly in place. The new latch assembly came with two microswitches but I had difficulty removing the wires from the old assembly so I unsnapped the old microswitches & put them in place of the new ones. The mounting holes in the new latch assembly lined up perfectly so there was no problem replacing the inner door panel.

Note: I noticed that the design of the new latch was improved over the one I removed. My old latch broke at the plastic pivot point. The new latch was mounted on a metal rod which is substantially stronger.
