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.

We have a black dishwasher. The old black latch handle was broken, so I couldn't reuse it. But the only colors available for the new assembly were white and bisque. But the bisque handle isn't too objectionable.

Read the reviews before ordering the part, when it arrived I shut off the circuit breaker, took the screws out ( 11 ) lifted up the inner panel and placed a book between the panel and door which gave me an opening of about 3". which is all you need to remove the handle from the door, disconnected the two wire connectors, and installed the new handle, flipped the breaker and bingo, done. My wife was in the other room for about twelve minutes, when she came out I told her the dishwasher was fixed, she said no way. The part was priced well, delivery time was unbelieveable, 2 days, saved me a lot of money, I was thinking about buying a new dishwasher, glad I didn't. Thanks you guys. T.D. Tennessee

Replacing the handle went smoothly. Only problem was of my own making when I closed the door after the inside panel was loose. The door locked closed and I broke the latch trying to open the door. So I replaced the complete door latch assembly and the handle.
