Probably from hanging on a tall item as the upper rack was pulled out. One of the retaining tabs was broken and the rotating arm would not stay in place.

I first shut of the breaker, since I would be working with the wiring. After gently prying the door open, I unscrewed the plastic panel from the inside of the door. The cracked parts of the latch were very obvious. That assembly also came loose with the panel mounting screws. It was easier to pry the switches from the old latch assembly than to unplug the wires from the old switch and, since they were still in good working order, I install them on the new assembly. I then replaced the screws and finished the job.

Handle didn' t lock so washer wouldn't run

After checking the door switch I found the micro switches were working but the unit would not start on the control panel. Thinking the latch was worn, I ordered a replacement. After changing the replacement latch and switches that came with it, the unit would still not start. I checked the switch and it is making contact. I can start the unit after I close the door using the handle of a pair of pliers. So I assume the control board is bad, due to the fact that it will not initialize the control panel until the door is closed. Now I have ordered a control board and will replace...stay tuned!!

The 2 harness connectors to the switches would not come off. I had to finally remove the 2 new switches from the new handle/latch assm. and plug in the old ones with the harness bables still attached to them.This worked fine and resolved the door problem. Unfortunately, I am now forced to use the old original switches while the new switches remain in the shipping box. If the old switches go out, I have no idea how to remove the connectors so I can attach them to the new switches.

Door would not open.

To open "stuck door", with right hand around upper right top edge of door and with left hand push directly inward on handle then pull out with right hand. It is a little tricky to do, but door will open. Turn off power to dishwasher. With the right size torx driver, remove the stainless steel screws around inside perimeter of door, left, right and top. Lift out inner door, which has a clip holding some wire in middle, so can;t lift all the way off. Lift it up enough to just "lift out" door handle/switch assembly. With power OFF, grab plug connectors and pull of old handle. Mine were very tight, and kind of rocked connector down and up while pulling and came right off. Plug wires into new unit, lay in place of unit removed just alighning to two pins. Lay inner door back in place, put screws back in, and you are done. VERY easy repair.
