Customerdaniel from mount airy MD

Dishwasher handle had problems opening and closing

1) Turned off the power

2) I removed the screws on the plastic door.

3) The latch/handle assembly was right there.

4) I noticed that white and black wires fed each side. I noted which side did the black feed and the white feed.

5) I took a pair of pliers and held the white wire brackets and pulled the metal parts off. This is where the time took.

It took about 2 minutes per side.

6) I then slid the new metal parts in the white brackets.

7) I screwed it back.

8) Turned it back on!

9) Works great

CustomerNina from Galveston TX

Plastic latch broke

All that was needed to do was to loosen the screws that holds the cover on the door, disconnect the switch and replace with new latch assembly. My thoughts is that the latch should have never been made of plastic since there is so much heat during the drying cycle and over time the heat causes the latch to become brittle and break.

Handle and panel broken

Turned off breaker. Removed screws (torx) from periphery of inside door. Propped open inside of door and placed counterweight on outside of door to hold down while working. Removed screws (hex) from old panel. Noted and removed 2 connections from old handle switches and ribbon from control unit. Installed new handle in new panel and made handle connections per old orientation. Installed new assembly with hex screws. Ribbon in new panel was difficult to seat in old control unit.

CustomerKenneth from Cocoa Beach FL

Door would not latch, would not wash.

Never having been there before, I disassembled the door, disconnected all wires,removed all the broken pieces, (and as an Engineer) tried to find out what went wrong. I found your other stories on repair, realizing I did not have to disconnect all the wires. I also found that you provied a handle/door latch complete assy that made the repair a breeze.
My wife is happy that her favorite kitchen aid (not me) is now in good working order and she shoohed me out. Keep up the good work.

Handle broke

1-Turn off Electricity

2-Open door Dishwasher

3-wrenches/torx wrench(fitting to screwdriver set) electric/ Duck Tape

4-Unsrew torx screws/while holding down door

5-When all screws are out /door inside door separates from outside door***watch for wiring going near top of inside door and disconnect/while holding down outside door (I was sitting in a chair so I put outside door under edge of chair to keep it from going up.

6-Take duck tape and tape inside door to dishwasher for cabinet to keep out of your way

CustomerGEORGE from BALTIMORE MD

Dishwasher refused to operate- broke the handle trying to 'kickstart it.

Have an identical model at another house so traded parts until it worked- turned out the control panel flat wiring was crimped & broke some circuits. Never would have guessed the problem. The new control panel (& latch) were a piece of cake to install-11 screws later.

Door difficult to open/unlatch, latch sticking

DISCONNECT THE ELECTRICAL POWER BEFORE MAKING ANY REPAIRS! Removed all the screws on the inside door panel but the two bottom screws, just loosen them. Removed the old latch assembly and two electrical plugs. Next install new latch and reinstall electrical plugs. Replace the inside door panel screws. Turn POWER back ON. (ONE NEEDS TORQUE BIT)

CustomerCHARLES from HERRIN IL

Door latch broken

Followed recomendations from other customers comments, especially about not having to remove panel completely. Removed all screws from door panel, just separated the 2 panels enough to reach in and remove old part, then attached new part and reinserted all screws. Took less than 5 minutes. Works great!!

The door latch had broken off of its pivot point and would not latch.

The inside door panel was removed to expose the latch. The latch was removed and the wires removed from the two switches. The new latch assembly was inserted, the wires were connected to the switches and the door panel re-attached.

CustomerDennis from Malta MT

Broken handle

The door on this dishwasher never did close right, it was catching or binding on the latch since new. The handle was broke for about six months and finally fell apart to where it would not work at all. After ordering the new latch from PartsSelect and about 20 minutes later the door works like new. There is no more rubbing or binding of the door, it opens and closes smoothly. We are 25 miles from any repairman and even my 80 year old mother could have fixed it. I printed out the helper suggestions and that made it alot easier. Turnoff power, unscrew about 9 screws, separate inner panel enough to slide out door latch, remove 4 wires from old switch, put four wires on new switch, place switch in proper position and replace 9 screws. Turn on power. DONE.
