The door would not latch

First I turned the power off at the elecrical panel. (there are live exposed parts on the inside of the door if you don't turn the power off and they conecet to the handel ) Then I removed the 9 or 10 tork screws that holds the inner part of the door to the outer part of the door. (Screws are on the inside of the door.) When you remove the screws this also losenes the bracet that hold the handle assmbley disconect the wires then put in the new one. the wires are a little hard to disconect. but that is about the worst of it . This part comes with every thing and and is cheper then buying it seperat. Sorry about the spelling. hope this helps

The latch to the door was broken. Needed replaced.

Layed door flat. Unscrewed 11 screws on the inside of door. Lifted inside cover and pulled power cables from both sides of handle assembly.

Pulled old handle out and set new one in. Hooked up both power cables and reset inside cover.

Lined up screw holes and tightened.

Works perfectly. Very very easy. 10 minutes.

Door latch broken

Turned power off to device. Removed all of the torx srews on inside of door. Latch assembly rest between inside and outside door and comes loose once door is unscrewed. Initially tried to repair broken latch, but was unsuccessful. So I ordered latch assembly. Unplugged wire connectors...make sure you match the sides of the wire connectors when installing new assembly. Replace door and restore power.

Broken door latch

I was planning to have an appliance repair guy do it. But he didn't show up. So I went down to Home Depot to pick up a Hex screw driver bit. Came back, switch off power at the circuit breaker for the dishwasher, opened up the dishwasher, unscrewed the bolts on the door, removed the connectors from the latch assembly, connected the new one to it, put it in place and bolted down the door cover. The most difficult part was disengaging the connectors. The whole thing including the trip down to Home Depot was less than an hour.

Broken handle on dishwasher

Removed all the screws around the outer portion of dishwasher door. This would be the part of the door facing the dishwasher when the door is closed. When you remove the screws, this will loosen the handle, enabling the handle to be removed and easily replaced.

Easy as pie!

Dishwasher wouldn't open. The latch was broken.

I called the 800 number instead of ordering online.
The young woman I spoke with was very helpful.
Like others, I was confused about which part to
order. I live in Mexico. There's a factory trained technician in town, but no parts. So I ordered the
part, had it shipped to my daughter in CA, and
when I visited I picked up the part and brought it
back. The technician charged 150 pesos. (That's
about $11 usd.) I watched him and realized I could have done it myself. But why bother?

Broken latch

Before starting job found step by step video of repair on You Tube, part was slightly different, but steps were all the same. Removing and replacing all the screws on the door panel took more time then the part it self.

The latch broke, and you couldn't open the dishwasher.

First - I selected 2-3 day delivery after ordering the part late afternoon. The part arrived the next day. Very satisfied with the time it took and the ease in selecting the correct part. Once I got the dishwasher door open, I removed the 11 screws from the door panel. The top two screws also hold the latch asssembly in place, so I removed those last. Then I detached the wiring, which required a pair of plyers - they were very tight. After that, I was able to replace the new part, screw the panel back on, and load the dishwasher for my wife before she got off the phone with my mother-in-law. Brownie points were awarded, and it took about 15 minutes.
