Broken latch.Hard to shut, nearly impossible to open.

Removed the screws on the door of the dishwasher, lifted up inside of door to get to the latch assembly, unplugged the 2 sets of wires, removed the old broken latch. To install new latch did all of the above in opposite order.
Very simple, quick easy fix. The only thing that might be an issue for some people is that you need a set or torx head screw drivers. (nice little set at Home Depot for less than $10. I'd say.)

The latch for the lock was broken, unable to open

I removed the screws, and unplugged the old part, plugged in the new part and screwed it back in. It was so easy it took about 10 minutes. I surprised my husband when he came home to repair it, it was finished by me!!

Broken latch made opening unit very difficult

Removed screws around perimeter of interior door panel. Latch was loose at this point so all I had to do is disconnect 2 wires and reattach those 2 wires to new part, position new latch in the proper place and fasten interior panel into origianl position. That was it!!!!

The door latch would no longer catch

First I had to go out and buy a Torx driver set, then I removed all of the Torx screws around the inside of the door panel. After that the door latch was free and I saw my problem, a broken retainer on the door latch assembly. I ordered a new door latch assembly and when it came in I removed the two electrical leads, set the new door latch assembly in place, attached the two electrical leads and reassembled the door panel with Torx screws all around. The new latch worked just like it was supposed to.

Broken handle

Unfortunatly if the plasic handle breaks you will need to purchase the handle/latch assy. However it comes complete with the interlock switches so it made the repair quite simple. . . Removal of the inner door panel also releases the handle/latch assy. Unplug the interlock sws. And install the new hanle/latch assy. While putting the inner door panel back in place. . . Clean up the mess you made and it's done. . . 1/2 To 3/4 of an hour and part of that is rounding up the tools you. . .
