PartSelect Number PS11748729
Manufacturer Part Number WPW10130695
This door latch (Dishwasher Door Latch Assembly, Door Latch Assembly, Latch Assembly) is a simple on/off mechanism that prohibits the dishwasher from operating when the door is open. It is located on the door of your dishwasher, and is mounted on the inner door panel. The door latch can break from material fatigue. If the door is often slammed or opened quickly, the latch may break prematurely. If the door won't open or the door switches won't activate, you will need to replace this part. This latch measures 5 1/2 inches wide, 4 1/2 inches high, 2 1/2 inches deep, is constructed out of plastic and comes in black. The kit includes the black handle, latch, and 2 switches.

Broken latch handle
The hardest thing was figuring out that you only need to purchase the latch handle because it only comes as a complete latch assembly, why they even list the latch assembly as a separate part in the parts list stupid. (you get the handle and latch already put together and it cost less than the latch assembly without the handle). Anyway all you need to do is disconect the power from the dishwasher (unless you like to live dangerously like me) take your drill with the correct size torx bit and remove all the screws on the inside door pannel (the top center two screws actually hold the latch assembly in place). Disconect the 4 wires from the old part and reconect them to the new part and reinstall all the torx screws being careful not to strip the plastic threads that they screw into if you are using a drill. Whole process takes less than 5 minutes. I am surprised that Maytag used such a flimsy handle assembly in their dishwashers since they are supposed to have the repair men with the most time on their hands. They probably sell just as many handle assemblies as they do dishwashers that have this particular part in it, probably more since you will probably have to change it 2 or 3 times during the life of the unit.

PartSelect Number PS11751688
Manufacturer Part Number WPW10275768
This door latch, used in dishwashers, is located at the top of the door and locks the door shut when the dishwasher is working. If the door will not close or is damaged, changing the latch could be the solution. For this repair, remove all screws from the inner panel, then lift up the inner door panel and hold the door apart. Next, access the latch and pull wires from the switches. Refer to the manual provided by the manufacturer for further instructions and guidance. Remember to unplug the dishwasher from the power source or shut off the house circuit breaker before beginning this installation project.

Latch handle broke due to Latch Assembly worn
This repair was fairly quick and easy. The parts are much better made than the stock Maytag. The parts from PartSelect came lightening quick! Never used before, always Sears, but will ALWAYS use from now on!
So, first, make super sure all power is disconnected. Then take the torx and remove all the screws on interior front cover - the top center two actually hold the latch assembly and handle. Once all are removed, I propped the cover up and left all wiring connected. I removed the switches connected to the old latch assembly and just removed the new switches from the new latch assembly, and popped the old ones onto the new latch assembly. Now have new switches if the old ones ever wear out.
The latch assembly just pops out from what should be two sets of plastic peg clips molded into the black control panel back. Mine were busted on one side. So I molded some jb weld on the remaining sides to the pegs on the latch assembly and then screwed all back together (the controls on the panel are fine, not spending $85 if I can get away with sticking it...and the upper center two screws do the most of the holding anyway).
Works great again. I really am ultra impressed with the HUGE difference in reinforcement that the new handle has. If Maytag would have built it that way to begin with, should not have broke. Anyway, if you are here just checking to see if you can do and how much parts are, place the order - it is no problem and cheap, and will probably never give up and break again.

The handle was broken which we noticed when we had replaced the front panel.
Turn off the power to the dishwasher by turning off the breaker at the breaker panel.

Unscrew the inside door panel using a star screw driver. Unscrew the broken plastic handle and replace with the new part. Screw the door panel back on.

Turn the breaker back on to restore power.

Broken latch made dishwasher difficult to open
This very easy repair made the appliance usable again.
First, turn off power to the unit (wall switch, in my case, may be a breaker in your case, just to be safe).
Simply removed all of the torx screwdrivers (I think I used torx driver bit #27, maybe #26, found in most security screwdriver bit sets).
Had to remove all the screws on both sides and along the top of the interior metal cover of the dishwasher door.
Once those were removed, worked the inner half of the door loose from the outer part (it did not have to come all the way off, just held it apart long enough to do the repair).
Then found the broken parts that had fallen in and remove them, then gently worked the latch assembly loose from the front panel and found the only way that the replacement part would fit, with the two small hinge points that snapped it into place on the latch assembly.
Replaced the latch assembly and moved the metal panel back into place, lining up the screw holes, started the two screws that go into the latch assembly itself and then a couple of screws on the sides to hold the panels together.
You can move the metal panel to position it just right before tightening any of the screws down all the way. I started with the two middle screws that held the latch assembly and then added all the rest, tightening them all loosely at first and then adjusting the fit before alternating sides to tighten them all firmly.
Latch works fine now.
