CustomerRandy from Round Rock TX

Handle was broke

Removed the old part (about 10 philip head screws).
Waited 1 day for the new part.
Unplugged the old part and plugged in the new part.
Job done.

* Partselect was GREAT. They had repair stories that made this job easy (told how to do it). They delivered the part very fast. They were way under priced to other parts places.

CustomerPhillip from Myrtle Beach SC

Door latch assembly broke for the second time.

After removing the inner door cover, the latch assembly was just about hanging in by the two wire
junctions which I opened by inserting a large flat
blade screw driver and giving it a little twist.
A very simple repair job, and I saved the minimum
$100. above the parts cost that a repairman would
have billed.

CustomerHal from Grayslake IL

Broken door handle

After turning off the power, I removed the 11 screws (#2 torx) holding the inside of the door panel in place. I removed the two leads to the handle assembly and installed the new one. Screwed the panel back into place and the job was done. PartSelect made things easy. I had the part in 36 hours from placing the order. They are great. More than I can say for this Maytag dishwasher which has been a piece of crap from the day I got it. Would never buy another.

CustomerTimothy P. from Melbourne KY

Door handle broken

Removed the torx screws and lifted the inside panel up and turned to lay on door. Removed two modular plugs from micro-switches. (They slide off but take a bit of muscle.) from original handle assembly. Connected modular plugs to new assembly and placed on door. Repositioned inside panel over door and re-installed torx screws. The hardest part of this repair would be having the proper tool (torx T-20) to remove the inside panel

*The 2 little plastic holders on the door panel itself seem to break easily. Mine were broke before I even removed the handle. These are used to hold the handle in place prior to assembly. The center 2 top screws are what actually hold the assembly in place.

CustomerLewis from Orange beach AL

Handle broken on door latch

I first removed the inside cover on the door (takes a special screwdriver bit), and found the plastic handle had broken tabs. I then removed the handle assembly by unplugging the attached switch wires, and found the handle was unrepairable.

I went to the internet and found both the handle and the entire assembly at Partselect.com. I opted for a new complete assembly.

The part was delivered in just a few days even though this occurred over the holidays, and was a perfect fit.

I cannot stress too much how easy it is to find parts on their website and how efficient and accurate their process is. One note: when ordering, on the verification page, I noticed a minor error and found no way to edit the info. I backspaced to the previous page and made my correction, only to find later I had placed two orders. A notice to them generated a cancellation of one and a quick refund.

CustomerJon from Muscatine IA

Poor washing on top rack, and broken handle

Problem 1: The dishes on the top rack were frequently still dirty, as if they hadn't gotten rinsed thoroughly (especially in the corners). We have now replaced both the upper and lower docking stations in the back of the machine. Washing has much improved. I no longer have to post-wash my glasses!
The docking stations snap off. Just be careful that the little gray flappers don't fall down inside the column they are attached to. You will have to remove the column (metal snaps on roof and back wall, then wiggle free from the bottom center) and fish them out. Our docking stations showed significant wear on the rim of each opening, as if things were not lining up correctly and it rubbed each time the rack was pushed back in. None of the flappers, old or new, seemed to create a fantastic tight seal against the rims. Perhaps they are meant to be pushed closed by the rushing water in the column?


Problem 2: Broken door handle/latch
This is the second door handle/latch that has broken on this machine (only 5 years old). We had the same model in our previous house, and had to replace that handle within 2 years, as well.

Replacement is simple removal of about 10 screws to open the door compartment. The part comes with new switches attached on the posts on each side, but they are not needed. Push in on the 2 little little prongs to snap them off, and use the existing switches (two brown and black little rectangular things attached to wires on the old latch). They just push on to the new part once you depress the little switch mechanism. Align the new latch with screw holes and replace screws.

So 2 new dishwashers (one in 2002, another in 2004), each needing a new latch after about 2 years, and one of them needing ANOTHER new latch after another 2 1/2 years. We did notice this part was redesigned when we replaced the latch the first time on the 2004 DW. Much easier to replace! However, the point that stresses/breaks is still molded plastic around metal pins. That's the weak point. Poor design.

Plastic handle broke. Snapped inside on one of the pivot joints

I read the other reviews. This repair was really easy. Turn OFF your circuit breaker first, because you will have to pry or wiggle off the two electric connectors. Connect the new handle assembly and drop in the new handle into the door. Put the screws back in, turn on your power, and you're done. This works Great, and is a real cheap fix for around $30.00. The part arrived within a few days of ordering. Very satisfied.

Broken door latch

piece of cake, literally took 10 minutes. removed screws around door, removed old latch assembly, plug electrical connections into new latch, set it and put the screws back in. Works like a charm.

Note: pay attention to where the screws go, there are 2 different length screws in the door with the same head so make a not of where the longer screws go.

CustomerDave from Springville AL

Latch handle broke off

This repair was really simple. The part comes with the whole latch mechanism, not just the handle. That's why it's about 20$. I opened the door, unscrewed all the torx screws to remove the plastic inside cover, pulled the wires off the old assembly and dropped it right in. It was all done in 20 minutes and I've never worked on a dishwasher in my life. Couldn't be easier.

CustomerBill from Napa CA

Latch was broken

Opened the front door to the dishwasher to the full flat position. Removed 11 screws holding the plastic liner in place. Lifted up the liner to expose the latch assembly. Unplugged the 2 electrical connections to the latch assembly. These were a little difficult to remove but came off with a pair of pliers or water pump pliers. They slide off. Wiggle back and forth. Be sure to remember the location they came off of. After removing the wire connections the switch came out of its plastic holder. Replaced the broken latch assembly with the new one by placing it into the plastic holder. Connected the two wire connections. Put the plastic door liner back into position and installed the 11 screws. Turned the dishwasher on the check operation. PRESTO! job complete. U can Do it!!

CustomerThomas from Alexandria LA

Latch broke

It was a "piece of cake." After turning off the breaker (important), I took out the screws around the inside cover. Removed the broken part. Disconnected the electrical leads. Then I reversed the procedure by making the electrical connection and screwing the inside cover with the new part back into place. After flipping the breaker back on, everything worked fine. No problems. . . . After studying the old broken part, I decided that the proper way to open the dishwasher without undue stress on the two plastic fulcrums that apparently break repeatedly in these machines is to make sure you don't just jerk up on the front edge of the latch to open the dishwasher, but fully insert your fingers into the latch and push forward firmly as you lift up on the latch. You won't find this instruction in the owner's manual. PartSelect had this part in stock and shipped it the next day. Great service!!!

Door latch broken

darn easy - the older german part had lots of plastic that broke off - the new mexican part has metal tabs.
11 screws to take the door off -two pull off electrical connections - replace connections and screw the door back on (don't over torque the screws.
As with the disospal balde I replaced with this dishwasher - the replacement parts are stronger/better than orignal.
GET THE ASSEMBLY - has all the parts - the latch handle itself is only parts.
