After prying open the door i removed the inner skin cover which did provide me access to the latch assy,2 additional screws and it was fixed.

This appears to be a problem with this apliance since it has done this before while under warranty

Took the door of the dishwasher apart and the replaced the lever assembly. The lever assembly does not come with a door handle, so you have to remove the old door handle from the old lever assembly and install the door handle on the new lever assembly. Installing the handle on the lever assembly was the hardest part, the rest of the installation was easy.

Simple repair. First and most important: Turn off the power at the circuit breaker panel. Next, remove 8-9 torx head screws holding the inside panel on the door. Pull the handle assy. away from the door and unplug the two electrical plugs from the handle. Mark or remember which side each goes on. Plug the two electrical plugs into the new handle assy. and place in back into it's position in the door and reassemble the door panel. Turn the power back on at the breaker box.

Unfortunately I’d done this repair before. It seems that this particular part has cheap plastic components inside and seems wear out every 2 or 3 years. The fortunate thing is PartSelect stocks this part, ships it quickly and it’s an easy repair. Just take the screws out of the inner door liner and pull out the latch, disconnect the wires and reconnect to the replacement and screw everything back like it was. Took me 10 minutes.

I removed the screws on the interior door cover plate, pulled the cover plate back which exposes the latch switch. I then pulled the two electric connectors off the switch, swapped out new switch, reconnected electric and put the screws back in. Simple repair which took not more than 15 minutes and solved the problem.

All screws are on the inside of the dishwasher.Not a good place when the washer is closed and the handle breaks.Had to take a box cutter and remove some plastic in the handle area to be able to remove broken handle and open dish washer.Once open this repair is a piece of cake.2 wires and a hand full of screws.

removed all the torx screws that hold the inside panel to the door. Removed the latch/switch.[Don't forget to turn off the power] Could not remove the wiring harness from the micro switch so I removed the old micro switches from the old switch and moved them to the new switch, harness and all. repositioned the latch and reattached the panel.
there are two latches available. I ordered the wrong one at first. Got the correct one in just two days. Was able to return to wrong one for credit.
Great service. Glad I didn't call a repairman.

the removal of panel was simple, the removal of electrical connections was difficult even with a little wd 40 i was nervous when any metal part is attached to a plastic part. it didn't want to let go but my suggestion is to work the connecter back and forth forward and back to get it started then with a firm grip on the wire harness with pliers pull the two apart with pliers. good luck!!!

Matching the part I had in my hand with the picture online was a cinch. Rec'd the latch in a few days, and installed it in minutes. Why did I wait so long to look it up and order? At least the kids think I'm a hero for fixing the dishwasher!

No instructions included. Have to take part to hardware store to get the proper bit.

Before starting job found step by step video of repair on You Tube, part was slightly different, but steps were all the same. Removing and replacing all the screws on the door panel took more time then the part it self.
