Door latch would fail

I removed the 11 screws that hold the plastic inner liner to the outer sheet metal of the door. The latch will be right there, and very easy to access. I Just removed the two connectors for the wires, which are a bit stubborn, and used a pliers for leverage to get them off the latch. Installed them on the new latch, and put the door halves back together, and ran the 11 screws back in. A side note, I have noticed that on the plastic front panel that houses the buttons, that there are two plastic tabs that are cast into the unit, that are chronically broken. They are there to help hold the latch solid when you put the two halves of the door together. I have been really easy on the door, but they still break, but it seems to work pretty well without the tabs intact. This happened to me twice, because I replaced the front upper panel on it, and the same thing happened again. Engineering issue I assume. Overall, a quick and simple install.

Plastic latch handle on dishwasher broke off...

first i removed eight torx (t-20) size screws...from the inner door . Then the wired harness surrounding the latch handle...( just a warning..im very very handy..esp with electric and got a little too cocky....pls make sure you turn off the power to the dishwasher...and avoid being zapped as i did ok?) the replacement part snapped in perfectly and was actually better quality than the maytag original...all it took then was to put the eight screws back and the washer was up and running in about 1o mins..

Latch handle broken

This repair was very easy. First, I opened the dishwasher, removed the screws (they are torx) and removed the old handle assembly. I removed the inner liner from the door, and to do that I had to pull out the electrical wires. I turned off the power, always a good idea. I should have marked the polarity on the plugs before removing them, since you can put them back on wrong (and I did).

I also used caulk to hold the assembly on the bottom, since the cheap plastic molded forks holding the assembly on had broken. Most of the holding force comes from screws at the top. The caulk provides just a little adhesion, and will be easy to remove if the handle should need to be removed again--which I consider unlikely.

Upgraded kitchen to stainless steel appliances

Shut off the power. Opened dishwasher door fully and removed 10 screws around outside edge. Lifted the inside panel up carefully and set to side with wires attached to soap dispenser. Removed two screws that held handle in place and removed wires. On the bottom o fthe door there are 4 screws 2 on each side that have to be removed from the hinges. You can now remove front panel. Take four screws out of control pad that hold the pad to the front panel. Simply reverse steps to reassemble. Takes about 30 minutes.

Door leaking, handle broken

Door gasket was easy out and in using the white mark on the seal to line it up with the center. The latch came with the handle so I returned the extra latch assembly that I ordered. Super easy to install. Removed door screws, carefully lifted and set aside inside of door leaving wires attached. Reved wire from latchtch switches, attached wires to new latch, put in postion and reassembled.
