I had already removed the dishwasher panel to see the broken latch. My husband turned the electric power off, then I pryed off the 2 wiring terminal and pluged in the new latch assembly, layed it in place and replaced the door and screws. But I have to give most of the credit to the video that I watched on your site. Linda

The repair was simple. We watched a YouTube video to make sure we were doing it correctly. It was as simple as unscrewing the panel, removing the old latch assembly, and connecting the new one. Nothing to it.

Followed recomendations from other customers comments, especially about not having to remove panel completely. Removed all screws from door panel, just separated the 2 panels enough to reach in and remove old part, then attached new part and reinserted all screws. Took less than 5 minutes. Works great!!

1. Turn of circuit breaker to dishwasher. 2. Remove inner door using star shaped screwdrivers- I bought a set at Home Depot for about $10. 3. I had to use a pair of pliers to detach the electrical plugs to the door latch sensors. 4. Connect plugs to the new sensors on the latch assembly and put the new assembly in place. Don't worry if the small tabs are broken on the control panel- they aren't necessary to hold the latch assembly in place. 5. Replace the inner door and turn the power back on. This took me less than 30 minutes to complete.

Piece of cake, 'even for a girl.' Removed the screws holding on door panel, used pliers to remove two electrical connections (throw the breaker first!)because they were so tight. Hooked up the new assembly, re-assembled door panel with screws, and that bad boy started right up. So proud to avoid a $150 service call with a $22 part!

Unit would not turn on.

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!!

Broken handle

The door on this dishwasher never did close right, it was catching or binding on the latch since new. The handle was broke for about six months and finally fell apart to where it would not work at all. After ordering the new latch from PartsSelect and about 20 minutes later the door works like new. There is no more rubbing or binding of the door, it opens and closes smoothly. We are 25 miles from any repairman and even my 80 year old mother could have fixed it. I printed out the helper suggestions and that made it alot easier. Turnoff power, unscrew about 9 screws, separate inner panel enough to slide out door latch, remove 4 wires from old switch, put four wires on new switch, place switch in proper position and replace 9 screws. Turn on power. DONE.

The door latch had broken off of its pivot point and would not latch.

The inside door panel was removed to expose the latch. The latch was removed and the wires removed from the two switches. The new latch assembly was inserted, the wires were connected to the switches and the door panel re-attached.
