Latch handle broken

Removed 6 phillips head screws that hold the front panel in place...let the panel hang in place...then remove 2 torex screws that hold the handle to the dishwasher ( # 25 torex screw driver needed ).......then pry the wire connections off the old handle..remembering where they go on the new latch.....and reverse the process for the new handle install..and for the gasket just follow the inst's on the sheet that comes with the kit..very easy...but when you close the dishwasher with the new gasket..it's going to be very hard to close..( well for me it was )for the 1st few times...

Broken door latch

Removed the broken part and disconnected the four wires. Installed new part (two hex head fasteners) attached wires - good to go!
Quick delivery on the part allowed for dishwasher to be down for only a few days after the part was ordered.

Door latch broke off, can't close door

Very easy to remove old broken door latch assembly, easier to install replacement. With door fully opened, I removed the 8 screws holding down the whole front casing, including the controls casing. Removed 2 Torx screws holding door latch assembly and then made sure that I marked all 4 wires before disconnecting them from door latch assembly. Connected wires to new door latch assembly, secured it with the 2 Torx screws, aligned and secured the controls and front cover casings with 8 screws. Done within 30 mins. Thanks guys for posting how-tos and thanks to PartSelect for a very fast shipping!!!
