Replacing the latch was easy. Removed the (11) torx head screws from inside of door pannel to get to the latch. Unplug the two wire connectors from the switches on the latch assembly, replace latch assembly with the new one. Plug in the wires to assembly and put it in place, replace the screws in the panel and the repair is complete.
The repair was as easy as ordering the part.
Two thumbs up for Part Select!!!

Broken Door Latch Assembly

Easiest repair ever done. With the door open, remove all of the door liner screws and set aside. Lift the inner door liner away from the door frame to access the door latch. The door latch is held in place by two of the door liner screws, so the switch will already be loose. Note the orientation of the old latch assembly to insure the new latch is positioned correctly. Lift out the door latch slightly and carefully remove each wire and exchange the wires in position on the new latch. After the wires are firmly affixed on the new latch assembly, discard the old latch assembly. Set the newly wired latch assembly in the door over the corresponding hole positions for the top of the door liner. Align the door liner and insert the screws. Tighten each screw making sure that all screws are firmly secured, but do no over tighten them as it is easily possible to strip the threads.

Opened the front panel, cleaned everything, installed the new part and ... the only reason it took me longer (this is the funny part) it's because I forgot to turn on the switch on the wall so, kept working on until my wife remainded me. I recommend your web site for the easy navigation, the great instruction and the fast deliver of the right product.
Thank you!

Broken Catch on Door Latch/Switch Assembly

  • Customer: Bryan from Queen Creek, AZ
  • Difficulty: Really Easy
  • Time to Complete: 30 - 60 mins
  • Tools Required: Screw drivers
  • 0 of 1 people found this instruction helpful
1) Watch Video on PartSelect.
2) Pulled power plug. Then removed Door panel screws and screwed them into a scrap piece of cardboard, because they were of two different lengths and not discernable pattern.
3) Removed old switch/latch assembly.
4) Verified part removed with image on website. Also verified model numbers.
5) Waited 3 days for part to arrive (too cheap for overnight...would have doubled the cost).
6) Installed new switch/latch assembly and door panel. About 30 minutes to remove old part and another 30 minutes (3 days later) to install new part and re-attach door panel.

left side place wheel and housing of middle rack broke

  • Customer: Kathryn from Chestertown, MD
  • Difficulty: A Bit Difficult
  • Time to Complete: 15 - 30 mins
  • Tools Required: Wrench set
  • 0 of 1 people found this instruction helpful
checked video and comments of previous customers. Had to buy torque wrench so although we have lots of tools we did not have this type of wrench. No indication of it needed when we ordered part, no written instructions with part. What do people do who are not able to have a video accessible to them as they install? Without video we would have had much more difficulty.

Had tried to order replacement wheel...seems odd that since it is reported that the wheels (plastic) have frequent breakage issues that you cannot just replace it instead of a $50 larger part. It is hard to find repair people in our rural area so glad to have online access. Good service from this company, prompt arrival etc.

The handle would no longer work.

The handle comes with the switch assembly. I took out the screws holding the back side of the door (white side , inside the of door). The switch assembly comes loose as two of the screws in the door panel hold the switch panel in place. There are two plastic hoders at the bottom of the switch attached to the inside of thr front panel. On mine these were broken off, but not really needed. You might have to get the old switch assembly loose from yours. I then pulled the switch wiring from the old switch. Note what goes to which side and in what direction they plug in and then hook up the new switch assembly. You may need to get the new switch bottom lugs back into the two brackets (mine were broken off and I ignored them) and then I located the two top holes in the switch assembly with the two holes in the top of the door and placed the back door panel back in place and put all the screws back in the door panel. That was it.

1. Shut off the power. (important!)
2. Removed 9 screws from the door panel. Left the bottom 2 in place. There is enough room to access the latch assembly.
3. Removed the broken assembly. The microswitch connections were easily removed by inserting the tip of a large scewdriver and carefully rotating it to ease the switch off the prongs.
4.Installed the new latch assembly and replaced all the 9 screws.
5. Closed the door and reapplied the power. Success!
6.Time taken was 10 minutes.

The instructions from others with a similar problem were invaluable.

Installed the new latch assembly, but it did not solve the problem. The dishwasher still does exactly the same thing and does not work.
