Broken latch on detergent dispenser

I had a broken latch on my dispenser, so had to replace the entire assembly. This is an easy repair, as the other posts have indicated. You do, however, really need a nutdriver. I undertook this project without a nutdriver and not only did it take ten times longer than it should've, but the dispenser leaked after my first attempt because I could not get the dispenser screwed in good and tight. All worked perfectly once I got the right tool, duh. The repair is done as other posters have indicated: unplug the machine, remove outer panel(s), remove six mounting screws, detach the wires attaching to the assembly, and reattach them to the new piece. **One thing not noted in other reports: there is a white plastic electrical connection on the lower right of the dispenser assembly. Mine had red wires attaching to it. To remove this from the old dispenser, you pull it straight out toward you, like a drawer from a dresser, and slot it into the new dispenser the same way. It would be quite easy to break this piece trying to get it out any other way, so use some caution.

CustomerDouglas from Grand Rapids MI

Latch was broken on the soap dispenser door

Turned off the power, just to be safe.

Removed the lower panel (4 screws). That made it easier to remove the lower 2 screws on the door panel. Slid the panel down slightly, then pulled off.

Removed the old dispenser - disconnected 2 wires, removed 6 screws, pushed in the plastic clips.

Pushed the new unit into place - clips click in. replaced 6 screws and 2 wires. Put the panels back on. Power on.

About 25 minutes.

Soap dispenser spring wasn't working.

My husband replaced the entire soap dispenser until in under 30 minutes. I stayed out of the room. :) I didn't hear any swearing, so I assume it went fairly well. Sorry that I can't give you detailed instructions. He didn't need a manual or any type of directions. I guess it was kind of obvious how to do it. Just be sure you turn off the power first.
