very simple repair. if i had to do it again i could do it in under 5 mins. it takes longer to remove the screws then it does to replace the latch. just remove the screws ( i left the bottom ones in on the left and right side, no need to remove them). then just remove the wire clips from the old handle and attach them to the new one. put the screws back in and that's it! my repairman wanted $185.00 to do this. i came to partselect, read other posts on how to do it (ty guys) and did it myself for $21 bucks.

Door Latch broke

  • Customer: Marco from San Diego, CA
  • Difficulty: Easy
  • Time to Complete: 15 - 30 mins
  • Tools Required: Screw drivers

Easy fix, but the best of all was that I ordered the part on the evening and it was delivered by noon on the next day, I was very surprised, and it made everything easier.

To replace the part I used a power screw driver, because I had to open the inside of the door to get to the latch system, about 10 screws around the inside of the door.

I'm more confident about my dishwasher now that I know I can get any part for it this quick.

Thank you and Merry Christmas!

Door latch malfuction

Purchased screwdriver head to fit dishwasher door screws. With the new screw driver removed all the screws from the door. Removed the broken door latch assembly.
Checked the voltage at the door latch assembly switches and switched off the dishwasher at the fuse box.
Had to break the old switches on the broken door latch assembly to remove the wire clips one at a time. Reconnected the switches on the new replacement assembly being careful to place the wire connectors on the new assembly as they were removed from the broken assembly. Placed the switch on the inside the door panel and installed all the screws. The only problem was removing the wire connectors from the broken door latch assembly that took a little time.

Dishwasher Handle Stopped Functioning-3rd time

  • Customer: Dean from Boiling Springs, PA
  • Difficulty: Really Easy

I removed the inside door cover. Pulled the 2 wires from the old unit and reinstalled them on the new one. As I removed the first wire, I placed it on the new unit....then removed the second one and installed it. I then replaced the latch assembly inside the door and reinstalled the inner door cover. It took longer to open the package and look at the new latch than it did to install it. I e-mailed PartSelect for the part on Christmas evening (Saturday) and had the new part delivered to my home by noon the following Tuesday.

Removed the upper spray supply manifold and the lower spray arm, and all other pieces to reach the chopper assembly, removing those pieces, installing the new pieces, and put everything back together. Success! The dishwasher is working as good as new.

plastic latch handle broken

This is the second time in 8 years that the latch handle broke. Its made of plastic and that is obviously why its not very sturdy. Since its a part that is used every time you latch the door shut to do a wash load it could have been better designed.

Using a torque screw driver I separated the back inside panel on the door from the front panel. The latch assembly was immediately freed since two of the screws that hold the top of the panel also hold the latch assembly on. I separated the left and right wires from the latch by pulling the wire sockets away from the latch. There are some detents that have to be pushed since they hold the wire caps on. removed the latch assembly and replaced it with the new assembly. Plugged the wire caps back into the new assembly, replaced the rear panel back on to the front panel and screwed all of the perimeter screws back in. when working with the latch assembly use something to keep the front and rear panels separated so that they don't snap shut while your working. Very easy repair and one that can save you a ton of money.

Broken Latch Handle

The repair was very easy....removed the screws around the door of the dishwasher, lifted and pulled the part right out. I just had to unplug the wires from the old hand and plug them back in to the new one. The past slid right in to place. My only problem was the screw hole for the screw that holds it in place was broken as well, so I hope only one crew will hold it.

The Handle snapped and door would not open

Removed inside cover of door (several screws around outside edge of door), then the latch assembly itself. Getting the wires to release from the old latch was the most difficult--had to pry the wire clip loose from the inside with a small screw driver.
I saved a great deal by buying the part from PartSelect. I was able to purchase the entire handle/door latch assembly for just a few dollars more than the handle only at another site!

I followed the instructions from other users on this site. So easy to accomplish this fix. The hardest part was not ruining my manicure in the process. :)

The door handle broke inside the door

I removed the 11 star drive screws holding the inside of the door to the frame. The door handle and latch assembly comes loose with 2 of these screws. You must then remove the 2 wiring harnesses from the door switch. This just involves pulling straight down with a pliers. The new assembly has pins to match the 2 wiring harnesses and the door assembly sits right in the same spot as the old one. Carefully set it in with the door all the way open so it can't slip and reattach the inteior of the door using the 11 screws. It is an easy fix and you only need to get a #25 star drive bit for your screwdriver or battery drill.

The old handle broke. It was nearly impossible to open the dishwasher.

I wathched the online video. It looked very easy. I read some of the other repair stories. So I ordered the part. I removed the eleven screws around the inside edge of the door. I pulled the latch assembly out a little, and checked it with the voltage tester. There was power. I turned off the breaker to the dishwasher, and re-checked that the power was off. I used a pair of needle nose pliers to pull the old assembly electrical connections loose. I plugged in the new one, put all the screws back in place and turned on the power. It works perfectly. Very easy, indeed.

Broken Dishwasher Handel

After 4 years of faithful service the handel on our built in dishwasher broke and needed to be replaced - we had a quote from a authorized repair place for $130 not including the parts. We found 2 very similar looking parts on the PartSelect website, and a quick phone call to a friendly and knowledgeable customer service agent helped sort out the difference in just a few moments. When the box arrived I think I spent more time looking for my screw driver and figuring out which breaker to turn off - than I did to replace the broken assembly. Dave - Redford MI

Turned off the power to the dishwasher. Used a hex head bit on the electric screw driver to remove all the screws around the inside of the door. Pulled the old broken handle out, disconected both sides of the electric wires, reconected them to the new handle then reinserted it. Screwed the door back togeather. Works great now. Didnt require any help from my husband :)
