Dishwasher latch broken, knob broken on load size switch on washer
For the clothes washer, I removed the back of the control panel, which allowed acces to the broken switch. One screw attached the switch to the chassis, which I removed. I removed 4 electrical wires and a vacuum line from the switch and attached them to the new switch, and installed it. Reinstalled the control panel, after checking function of the new switch.
The dishwasher needed a new door latch, so I removed the screws attaching the face plate assembly from the door. This allowed acces to the broken latch, which was attached with two screws. Removal of the latch and wires was easy, as was installing the new latch in reverse order of disassembly. I replaced the door gasket as it came in the kit, and it's installation was a snap.
Total repair time for both appliances was perhaps one half hour.
