Door latch broke

First I removed the control panel and then removed the screw holding the handle. I then pulled the connector wires off and onto the new handle. I then screwed the new panel into place. Easy job, no mess.

Door latch was broken

First i removed the screws on the back panel, unscrewed the latch, removed the wires and installed the new latch.
I found the latch is too expensive for a little plastic part.

Door latch broken on one side

Removed the screws that hold the panel on ( just the top ones-no need to go all the way down the sides. Need a "star" headed screwdriver to remove the switch itself. Then removed the wires (4),one be one, so as not to mix them up. reinstalled all thescres for the switch, then the panel. Job done.
What amazes me is that Frigidaire doesn't read your page to realize that the handle assembly was defective and send out a recall. look at all the repars listed in your site , and these re just from the people that have responded with comments and who use your service. New handle/switch is much more sturdy with a higher density plastic that the original. Your service is easy to use, prompt and accurate. Fixed the dishwasher while my wife went to the store. Dishwasher done in 15 minutes and watched theNCCA tournament for 2hours in complete peace !!!!! No need to tell the wife only spent 15 minutes.

Door latch assembly broke

I opened the control knob panel. The latch assembly is located behind inside the panel along w/ the wires. This is my second replacement of the assembly. The last one lasted about 2 years. They should make a sturdier latch assembly next time.
