Door Latch

PartSelect Number PS6447681
Manufacturer Part Number WD21X10490
This is replacement door latch for your dishwasher. The door latch is attached to the tub frame, and connects to the door strike to keep your dishwasher door closed during operation. If you have a broken or faulty door latch, your dishwasher door may not stay closed, and this can prevent the dishwasher from running. This item is sold individually, and if your door strike is also damaged, you will need to replace that part separately. This is an OEM part sourced directly from the manufacturer.

Installation Instructions
James from ALBRIGHTSVLLE, PA
Door latch not functioning
1. Turn off breaker supplying power to dishwasher in electrical panel
2. Open dishwasher door
3. Unscrew the screws that secure the dishwasher to the counter.
4. Tip dishwasher forward. Identify the non-functioning door latch. It looks exactly like the replacement. Unclip the wire harness from the door latch.
5. On the inside of the dishwasher, there are 2 screws directly under the door latch. Unscrew them and carefully set aside.
6. Remove old door latch.
7. Set new door latch in place. Holding securely, replace screws removed in step 5. Toward the end they get a little tougher to screw in.
8. Plug wire harness into new door latch.
9. Re-align dishwasher and re-secure to counter in previous position.
10. Test latch to make sure it closes properly.
11. Turn on breaker in electrical panel.
The dishwasher should now function properly.

door latch broken
I watched the convenient video and saved an old machine that I've grown to love. Plus I didn't have to pay a repair service or have to buy a new machine.
Thanks GE,

Interlock Plunger
★★★★★
★★★★★
(3)
PartSelect Number PS1993857
Manufacturer Part Number WD12X10271
This is a replacement interlock plunger for your dishwasher. The interlock plunger actuates the door latch switch, which allows the door to latch, which sends a signal to the electronic control board, indicating that the door is closed. If the plunger is damaged or missing, your door may not latch properly, and your dishwasher may not start. The plunger itself is a small piece of white plastic approximately 2 inches in length. You may also need to replace the spring in the door latch assembly while completing this repair. Be sure to disconnect power to the dishwasher before you begin this repair.

Latch Handle
★★★★★
★★★★★
(1)
PartSelect Number PS259297
Manufacturer Part Number WD13X10007
This part is the replacement latch handle for your dishwasher. It is made of black plastic and is approximately 5 inches by 1 inch. The latch handle is what allows you to open and lock the dishwasher door. If the latch handle is broken, you may not be able to open the door properly, and if the dishwasher door doesn't lock properly, the dishwasher will not be able to run. The main reason to replace the latch handle is if it is cracked or broken. This part is sold individually and is an OEM part from the manufacturer.

It makes a beeping sound in the middle of the dishwashing.
Remove the screws from the door and replace the switch interlock and door latch.

The problem is fixed and the dishwasher works fine so far (about three weeks) now.

The source of the problem looks more like the door latch because I use to push the door in to get it going before I replace the parts.

The video I received via email that show the how to do it was very helpful.

Update after more than month. (12/30/2020)
The problem still persists. However I have a possible solution for it that doesn’t require any parts at all. The entire dishwasher is tilted backward. As the washing started and the water pileup in the bottoms of the dishwasher, it pull the entire dishwasher back work causing the switch interlock to release (open the relay causing the door open been sounds).

Level the dishwasher so that it doesn’t tilt backwards and this should fix the issue. I will post the latest after a month. If you need more info I can send a picture to describe the issue more clearly.

Update 01-06-2021
The problem still persists. The above theory I had was wrong and didn’t make any difference.

However, I have a permanent solution but it may not be ideal for most people ??. The relay that get close/open when the door is close/open is now always CLOSED. To start the dishwasher just press start and make sure you don’t open the door while the dishwasher is running. It will not stop. I am sorry and I know it’s not a good solution but it’s kind of funny.

Installation Instructions
Dana from PLACERVILLE, CA
Water contamination on the selector board. Dishwasher would not run
The wife damaged the latch assembly, so that had to be replaced. The control assembly comes with all of the PCBs, already connected together. This is very straight forward. Unplug the dishwasher.
Working from the inside of the door, remove all of the screws around the perimeter, noting where the "long" screws go for when you go to reassemble. The front panel (with the handle) will come off. Set it aside. Remove the two latch screws and the whole electronics assembly will come free. There are only five or so connections to swap on the largest of the three PCBs. Simply lay your new board next to the old, oriented in the same manner, then start pulling connectors off the old and onto the new until complete. Unscrew the control and indicator boards, and screw in the new ones. One note on the latch assembly. My new one was shipped in the "closed" position. If you replace yours, make sure the receive is open before you install or your will likely be taking it apart again. Reassemble the door. With the door open (ajar), plug the dishwasher back in and test the on/off and selector buttons. That's it.
