This was the best price on the internet. It was delivered quickly and after removing 4 screws, I could access the handle. Was relieved that I had correct tool for screws inside. Removed handle and unhooked wires. Plugged wires into new handle and fastened. Replaced panel in door then popped out gasket and replaced. Started dinner, turned around and repaired dishwasher and then sat down to eat. I am A single mom and this was VERY simple to replace!

Plastic handle/latch broke

Once I realized I needed to remove the entire front of the dishwasher it was pretty easy. The only issue ws the new latch is not as tight as the original which may explain why the new gasket was included. I am going to take thr front off to make sure the latch gasket is screwed in tight. Otherwise it was very easy and simple to change.

Broken Handle.

Relatively easy to repair.

1 - Removed the 6 inside screws. and control panel came right out.
2 - Had to use a hex driver to remove the screws holding the latch ot the door. Easy enough, just two screws.
3 - Reassemble.

Toughest part of the job was getting the four wires off the latch. Used needlenose pliers.

I was suprised when I received the parts. There were directions on replacing the gasket but nothing for the door latch. Short of this, it was the right part and I received it on two days. Thanks

Removed front panel and eased out screws holding the dishwasher in place. Lowered the door and removed old springs. Replaced the springs and sit the unit back in place. When they are this old it is best to replace both springs. Rated easy...,

Both heating element brass nuts had a split in them. They had fallen off the heating element and were hanging on the electrical wires. I removed the wires from the heating element and removed the brass nuts from the wires. I then screwed the new nuts on the heating element and reattached the wires. problem solved. I want to thank you for having the parts I needed as Sears had discontinued them for this Kenmore appliance.

Broken latch to open dishwasher

  • Customer: Roberta from Ashtabula, OH
  • Difficulty: Easy
  • Time to Complete: 30 - 60 mins
  • Tools Required: Screw drivers

I unscrewed the front panel by using the screws at the top, inside of the dishwasher (I also unscrewed the screws at the bottom, inside, but that wasn't necessary). It took a little coaxing, but I gently pulled one wire at a time from the old unit and replaced that wire before going to the next. After all wires were attached, I screwed the new unit to the body. Really easy. I just was puzzled why I received instructions to replace the gasket and none for the dishwasher latch.

After watching a wash cycle with the front cover off, I noticed water coming out from the bottom of the pan, under the Gasket. Pulled the gasket down out of the slit and reinstalled the new one exactly as the old one came off, with the wiper angled the correct direction.

Couldn't have asked for an easier fix, directions were superb, ship time - unbelievably fast and above all, I saved almost two hundred dollars by not having a certified repair person come out to my home. Thank you Partselect!
