Latch broke completely and then shortly thereafter due to the extra pressure put on the control panel handle lip the top part of the panal broke off.

removed all screws that held the door liner in place @ 10 then removed the 6 screws that held the control panel in place. control pane came off easily. as the latch was broken that came off easy too. The replacement panel and latch fit perfectly. the only trouble I had was inserting the flat wiring bundle from the new control panel to the old circuit board connector. Take your time and really seat the flat wire bundle into the circuit board. it needs to be nice and snug. if it's not only a few of the wash functions will light up when pressed. once the connection is tight all functions worked. replace all screws - easy.

Dishwasher would not turn on, sporadically

Removed the inside panel of the dishwasher door with the Torx bit in a nutdriver. Disconnected wire going from door panel to control module. Removed control module cover with a nutdriver and loosened the ribbon cable from the circuit board. Using nutdriver, removed two screws attaching control module to door and removed four screws attaching plastic control panel to metal door frame. Reversed the above steps to attach the new control panel, ribbon cable, and put everything back together. Dishwasher now works like it did when we got it!

We had a brokeddn latch and crack panel

opened door and unscrewed screws. Once we got that off we needed to shut off the power which was the hardest part as my husband had to go to the main box and flip breakers till figured out which one it was. With help holding parts and wires so we didn't have to discoonect everything it was really easy to just reconnect the new parts, place in the latch and screw the panel back in. Everything fit like a charm and when we turned it on it worked. So we are very happy.

Failed to start wash cycle.

Turn off the power. Remove all the dooe panel screws. Tape the iner door panel to the counter top to hold it out of the way. Remove the plugs from the latch. Remove the handel and install it in the new latch. Remove the Control Panel and replace it with the new Control Panel. Plug the ribbon cable into the socket on the circuit board. Reistall the plugs on the door latch. Fit the inner panel to the door and replace the screws. Turn on the power. Lots of green lights and a dishwasher that works.

Any button used would only let heavy wash cycle work.

I found corrosion/crud on a ribbon cable leading into the circuit board. That 'stuff' was creating a short circuit in the panel and making it act oddly. I was not able to remove the crud without rubbing away the wires on the cable (ggrrrrrr)... I tried rubbing alcohol and nail polish remover (for the acetone) and neither removed the corrosion/crud
enough to prevent me from having to rub it. It didn't take much rubbing (was using a cotton tipped swab) to wipe away the wires. Maybe a specific cleaner (Radio Shack or PC Store?) for electronic circuit boards would making cleaning go better... since I messed up those wires I needed a new panal AND that did solve the original problem - pressing any button would only let the heavy wash cycle work.

This was easy an easy job, just more screws than expected and I am familiar with circuit boards and numerous connector types.

!! Turn off circuit breaker to dishwasher. !!

Removed the internal door panel (11 hex head type 7/64" screws) and moved it out of the way (remove connector on that door panel to move it completely out of the way - I didn't).

Need to remove AT LEAST the one screw in the middle of the black box to lift the top of the black box lid and disconnect the ribbon cable (don't recall if the two other screws on the black box needed to come off for the panel or not.

NOTE: to remove the ribbon cable there's an outer sleeve/bezel that is all the way "up" (furthest away from the circuit board). That sleeve pinches the ribbon cable to hold it in. Slide it all the way "down" (towards the circuit board) - and then you can pull the ribbon cable out.

Now remove 4-5 internal screws (use 1/4 nut socket) that hold the panel on and it will drop down and lift away. Grab the replacement panel...

Re-install in reverse order of dis-assembly.
Perhaps add at least one/two screws to hold the panel on and then re-connect the ribbon cable and slide the sleeve all the way "up" to lock cable in.

Good Luck!!
