I nearly panicked when I found out that my DW handle was broken--I couldn't even get the door to open after running it. I finally yanked on it very, very hard and it popped open so I could empty it, but then I needed to figure out what was wrong. Not wanting to call a repair man for just a broken handle, I looked on the internet and found your website. I watched the video for the handle assembly installation and decided I certainly could do that myself (after all, I'm only a woman and 66-year-old at that). I took out all of the screws holding the door panel on and saw the real problem--the pivots on the plastic handle that hangs outside of the dishwasher had broken off and all I needed was a completely new assembly. I ordered that, it arrived quickly, and I attached it after disengaging the latch, screwed the panel back on, and voila! everything worked perfectly. I didn't use your switches since mine were already attached to the wires. I just reinstalled them on the new latch in the same order they came off. I'll tell you, it was a very empowering event for me, plus saving myself an expensive service call. That video of the installation was the whole key. It allowed me to see that I could do it myself or at least try it. Thank you so much!

I found your website and the instructional video. The video was exceptional. I ordered the part and was here in two days. That blew me away. Changing out the part was just like the video and took me less than 15 minutes. The best thing, by ordering the part and following the video I saved about $100 in a service call. Best yet, I didn't have to do the dishes. Thanks!

removed 11 screws that were around the inside of the door allowing the front of the door to come loose. Then removed the door latch assembly, unhooked the wires from it, hooked the wires onto the new door latch assembly and put the latch back in place. Put the screws back in and the project was complete.

I thought I would have to buy a new dishwasher, which I could not afford at the time. I did some online research to find out what the problem likely was, went onto your site, and saw the part, watched the instructional video, which ws very informative, as I was able to buy the special screwdriver I needed. I ordered the part. It came two days later. I installed it a few minutes after it arrived, and was doing dishes that night! Thank you!

Needed special tool to remove the inner door and drill would fit. Had to unscrew by hand. Could not get metal prongs out of spade. Pulled and tuged for a long while.

removed door panel, using torx wrench. I used an allen wrench configuration, has 90 degree bend in it, of the torx tool. In the future I would use a 'screw driver' configuration, i.e. straight shaft with handle on end. used screw driver to pry off old latch. reversed process to install new latch and handle mechanism. repair video provided by partselect was spot on! Partselect is my 'Go-To' from now on and am looking forward to contacting them for my next repair.

When ordering the parts there is a repair video of how to replace the door latch. Even though it was not necessary for this repair it is always nice to see someone else do the repair first so there are no unforseen items. This repair probably took longer to find the T20 than it did to do the repair.

Everything went well and was pretty easy. The only slightly tough area was getting the wire clips to release off the terminals. You for sure want to cut the power to the dishwasher before starting your repair

I removed the screws holding the inner door panel (approx 8), pulled it back and removed the handle unit from the inside. When I examined the unit I found a pivot/rod holder broken. I wrote down the part number and model etc. Went online and the site described the usual faults reported and ordered the part. It came in within a couple of days. Had unit repaired within 10 minutes.In this day of disposable everything, this was a delight and a surprise. I will buy other Maytag stuff just because this was so easy.
