This dishwasher access panel is almond on one side, and black on the other side.
This part works with the following brands: Whirlpool, Admiral, Estate, Inglis, Kenmore, KitchenAid, Roper, Maytag, Crosley, Jenn-Air, Hardwick, Magic Chef, Amana, Caloric & Glenwood.
This panel is reversible, black on one side, white on the other side.
I removed the four screws, two at the bottom and two at the top, of the lower access panel and removed the broken assembly. I removed the piece of rubber trim from the bottom of the door panel (unsnaps from it's channel). I pried off the damaged bright trim from the left side of the door, scraping off most of the glue residue with a knife and finally cleaning the rest with solvent. I cut the new piece of bright trim to fit with siscors and pressed it in place. I used the remainder of the new trim and a piece cut from the old damaged trim previously removed to trim the lower access panel. I carefully removed the insulation from the old access panel and installed it in the new access panel with double sided tape. I followed the instructions that came with the new panels and installed them in the door and access panels. I reinstalled the rubber trim in the bottom chanel of the door. I moved the other parts from the old access panel to the new access panel and reinstalled the new access panel assembly with the four screws removed earlier. Finished... I found other sites with the parts but ordered from PartSelect because your site made it easier to identify and select the right parts to order. My order shipped very quickly and everything arrived perfectly. I'm impressed. Thank you...

Washed the edges good and clean to remove old tape that was holding the old panels. Slid in the new ones and found that the retaining strip would not work without replacing the inner strip. I didn't want to order this $53 dollar plastic strip so I squeezed a couple of rubber pieces into the bottom of the side edges to hold the top panel. Placed the retaining strip in place and used a long strip of black duct tape at this bottom edge to hold it all. It works and the new panels make the dish washer look close to new,the black duct tape hardly shows. This works good for my 10+ year old dishwasher until it is replaced with one that has a better door design.
When I came home my husband fixed it. Looks bran new and he said it was simple.
