Water leak and broken latch

We knew the latch was broken, but operational if you held it just right. I disconnected the water line and electricity to slide the dishwashwer out from the cabinet. Determined that hose had been chewed through by a mouse. Ordered the parts. when they arrived, changed the hose, slid the dishwasher back into place and tested. No leaks. then removed 6 screws to remove the face, 2 more screws and the wires to remove the broken latch, reversed the processed to replace and replaced the old seal. Loaded the dishwasher and it works like new.

Latch handle broke

Removed the screws holding the door panel and as the sheet said was the way the it went. Two screws holding the handle latch and replaced it and put the door back on. There was 4 wires to replace on the latch. Replaced the gasket and the job was done. All in all it was a very good experience with good instructions and very good same day shipping. A VERY GOOD EXPERIENCE.

Door latch broke off

After watching the repair video, it was 'easy as pie'. I would have thought the gasket was too long and cut it off if not for the video. Thank you. Saved a great deal of money not having to have a repair person do the work. I strongly recommend watching the video.

Broken latch

I replaced this latch,but noticed that the electric terminal configuration was not identical to the old original part. There were no installation instructions furnished for installing this new part, so I had to guess that the wire terminals attached to the new part in a similar position as detached from the old part. So far the renter has not called that the dishwasher is not operating correctly.
