My dainty darling wife using brute force brike the latch assembly by taking out her frustration on having to do the dishes again. Although broken the dishwasher still worked, but was difficult in opening. Trying to open it one evening her brute force tore the plastic on the panel near the latch. Now

First , unplug your dishwasher from the outlet.Then remove the 9screws all the way around the inside of the door,followed by removing the 2 screws that hold the latch, 2 screws that hold the panel and 2 screws that hold the black case containing the electronic circuit board. You need to open up the black case in order to remove the thin cable that connects to the circuit board and which makes everything work. (You get a new one allready attached with the new panel). Next go to the latch assembly.You alsoneed to unhook the black & white leads. Take your time here and pull them straight back and slowly with a pair of needlenose pliers. They are stubborn so just take your time.To be safe I drew a small diagram to make sure that I hooked the white back to the right connection.
Once the part s were received , I put the new panel on, connected the cable to the circuit board, closed the case and put the screws back in. Next , I put the black & white wires back on the switch ( based on my diagram) , put the 2 screws in the latch locations and then put the remaining screws back into the inside door. Plugged it in , tested it, and everything worked just fine.
So far the wife hasn't used her herculean strength again. This is a Maytag & things aren't supposed to break.
Last note: Your telephone person was a jewel. The latch was shown as NLA (No longer available). She took the time when I called to follow up on the part number and find another number made by another company by special order. Absolutely first class in my book. Kudos to her.
Thanks again, service was good and delivery was within 5 days.

Ribbon cable for control panel had two conductors broken. Requires the replacement of the control panel.

1. De-energize appliance at your electrical circuit breaker panel.
2. using torx # 15 remove the back cover of the door. Careful not to pull on wiring between door and cover.
3. Remove the cover to the circuit board to access the control panel "ribbon"
4. carefully and gently pry the plastic tab which secures the ribbon to the circuit board. The ribbon will be released and then remove the control panel two mounting screws on either side.
5. Don't worry, this takes longer to read than to perform the required steps.
6.Now install the new panel, do not tighten the screws until you have all the screws in just snug.
place the ribbon connector into the slot at the circuit board, secure it with the tab by pressing gently until its secured.
7. Completely tighten all control panel and circuit board cover screws, place back cover and ensure that the bottom end goes over the edge of door, careful with those foam splash seal and align all screw holes, replace screws, again do not tighten until all screws are in place.
8. Turn appliance circuit breaker back on and see that the LED lights come on on the control panel. Run a test load and enjoy the feeling of a job well done.

Dishwasher wouldn't start

The replacement was easy but it's frustrating that the control panel would go bad so quickly (just over 5 years old). There are about 10 torx head screws (I think T20) to take out in order to open the door. Then about 5 head head bolts to detach the control panel from the door. Finally a thin ribbon electrical connector from the control panel to the cpu board -- also attached to the door.

Reassembly was pretty much the reverse -- very straight forward.

I wasn't certain the control panel needed replacing as it seemed there might have been a blown breaker in the system somewhere. However, I stumbled on the instructions for sales floor demo mode (press extra rinse 5 times quickly). That showed all the lights working, so it didn't seem to be an electrical problem. You turn off demo mode by pressing the start button. That didn't work, so it seemed pretty clear the button was the problem.

Broken latch assy and front panel

Turn off power to the Dishwasher at your breaker panel.
If you haven't done so, turn off the power to the Dishwasher at your breaker panel.

Using a star-shaped screw bit, remove the perimeter screws around the inner edge of the door panel. Remove the screws connecting the control unit to the control panel.
Detach the cables from the latch assembly by pulling the connectors loose.
Detach the ribbon-cable connecting the control panel to he control unit by gently sliding (prying) the connector on the control unit circuit card.
Attach the new Latch Assy to the new Control Panel with a couple screws previously removed.
Attach the ribbon cable of the new control panel to the control unit by just pushing it in and sliding the connector back together.
Attach the cables back to the Latch Assy.
Clean up the edges of the door while easy to get to.
Use a screw driver to push in on the latch assy (where the machine latches to close the door)
Put the door back in place and replace all the screws.
Close the door and turn on the breaker in your breaker panel.
Try out the dishwasher.
VWHALLA!

Water left in dishwasher; wouldn't drain

first checked drain tube, no blockage
then tried to run machine but start/cancel button failed to function
saw online that similar folks had problem with button/panel and I unscrewed the torx bolts holding the front panel together to get at the circuit stuff.
sure enough, burn spot on circuit ribbon.
replaced main control panel and ran diagnostics, field test instructions, etc.
turned out the drain pump was dead also.
2 parts and ~$100.00 later I have a "new" dishwasher...I guess it's worth it.
cheaper than a repair guy or new appliance.
apparently this fix is not real uncommon on these dishwashers. Good luck!

I really had two problems: The door latch broke and coincidently (?) the touch pad controls were erratic. The big help was from another repair story that suggested touching the "extra-rinse" button four consecutive times to activate a demo mode. All lights lit up so I figured the cpu was ok. Ther

Very simple repair. First I removed all the screws on the inner door cover and then the screws holding the control panel to the door. I also had to remove the CPU to get it out of the way (two screws) to access the contact for the ribbon connector . When I pulled the contact for the ribbon conector away from the old panel, the small plastic sleeve holding it to its receptor came loose. I was worried I had ruined the receptor but it was a simple matter to insert the ribbon into the receptor and slide the sleeve over it to secure it. In a few minutes I put everything back together and Voila! Everything works like a charm. One estimate was $150 minimum to come out to the house, let alone the cost of the part. I saved myself a bundle, restored my male esteem and am anxious to have my next appliance break down so I can fix it.

Plastic handle used to lock door broke.

Utilized PartSelect's wonderful website to locate
the two parts required for this repair.
Happily, parts arrived a day early so immediately removed inner door liner's 10 screws.
Lifted liner enough to note how & where connections between door panel and mechanism. Then unplugged connections from old panel and reconnected to replacement in same order. Snapped in new handle...it connects in two places. Reattached front panel's screws. Closed door and started wash cycle. Everything works!
Spent $170 for both parts but save $500-$700 for
a new appliance. Very happy camper! Thanks!
