Latch was not working

Wow. I am now an appliance repair man. I fixed the dishwasher which was somewhat easy and all works well. Just a few days after the dishwasher was done the clothes dryer shut down. Since I am an now an appliance repair man I decided to tackle the dryer. I got out my meter and checked the parts and found that all I needed was a thermostat so I ordered it from parts select. My wife is so impressed, I saved a bundle and the service from parts select is great!

Dry knob and dishwasher handle broken

The Dry Knob was a no brainer, I just replaced the existing knob.

The Dishwasher handle was fairly easy. I had to removed the dishwasher door and remove the broken handle. Removing the handle was a bit difficult, but once it was removed everything else went very quickly.

Plastic latch handle was broken

This was VERY easy to do and saved me a service call and a pile of $$.
1. turned off power to dishwasher
2. removed the phillips screws holding the panel around the latch assembly
3.lifted the panel off
4. removed the two torx screws holding the latch assembly in place
5. disconnected the electrical connections from old assembly one at a time and connected each onto the new assembly to ensure wires went to the right places
6. put the new assembly in place, replaced the torx screws and tightened them
7. replaced the panel
