Removed screws from door liner and separated liner from door. Latch assembly was attached with same screws that held door liner. I had some difficulty pulling off connectors but not to bad. I then reattached the liner. New latch works like a charm. Easy 15 minute job.

latch was broken

I followed the installation instructions I got from this site. These repair stories are very helpful and made the repair clear and easy.

I took the panel off with a T-20 screw driver (bought for about $4), propped up the panel without disconnecting wires...

At that point, I remembered that I needed to switch off the breaker, so I went downstairs and did that.
Then I took the old latch out, taking both switches off the old assembly and switched out the new switches for the old in the new assembly... (you have to press the small button in on the switch for the switch to snap in place.)

I installed the new assembly with the old switches because the old ones were fine and someone on this site suggested saving the new switches for when/if the old switches failed... (also I found it impossible to unplug the wires from the existing switches!)

Once the old switches were in place on the new assembly, I placed the assembly in the door and replaced the panel.

All the screws in my panel were the same length, unlike a post from someone else that stated that the screws around the latch were longer... mine were all the same length.

Easy, overall.

The Sears repairman was not scheduled to arrive until 10 days after I called to schedule... I got the parts from PartSelect in 2 days and the fix took me about 20 minutes. Obviously, I cancelled the Sears repairman.

After that, I ordered new parts from PartSelect for my 20 year old cooktop so it will look good for the upcoming holidays...

Never knew I could fix and refurbish my appliances for so little and so quickly.

PartSelect is great.

First we shut off the power to the Dishwasher. Then removed the screws around the white cover inside dishwasher to expose the handle latch assy. Unplugged the handle(latch Assy.) and plugged the new one in it's place. Returned the screws into the cover and turned back on the Dishwasher power. Already to clean more dirty dishes.

I ordered the part for a 15+ year old Maytag dishwasher. It came in just a few days with normal shipping. I put in the new part and tossed the old one. I was shocked that I could get the exact replacement part in such a short time.

Thank you PartSelect!

Removed torx screws from inside door cover, then removed 2 torx screws that held the latch assembly on. Removed 4 wires from the 2 microswitches....wires are very difficult to pull off. Installed in reverse order making sure the proper color wires go to the correct microswitch. Probably the simplest, easiest repair job I've ever done.

The area that holds the arm in place and it would not fit properly.

latch had broken off inside

removed all the torx screws that hold the inside panel to the door. Removed the latch/switch.[Don't forget to turn off the power] Could not remove the wiring harness from the micro switch so I removed the old micro switches from the old switch and moved them to the new switch, harness and all. repositioned the latch and reattached the panel.
there are two latches available. I ordered the wrong one at first. Got the correct one in just two days. Was able to return to wrong one for credit.
Great service. Glad I didn't call a repairman.

The plastic handle broke

  • Customer: Peggy from Oklahoma City, OK
  • Difficulty: Really Easy
  • Time to Complete: 15 - 30 mins
  • Tools Required: Screw drivers
  • 0 of 1 people found this instruction helpful
first I removed the screws holding the inner panel of the door which left the latch and handle assembly loose. Instead of disconnecting the wires from the switches which I could not do, I used the same switches in the new one. The new handle is reenforced with a metal pin instead of just plastic, very easy job.

the removal of panel was simple, the removal of electrical connections was difficult even with a little wd 40 i was nervous when any metal part is attached to a plastic part. it didn't want to let go but my suggestion is to work the connecter back and forth forward and back to get it started then with a firm grip on the wire harness with pliers pull the two apart with pliers. good luck!!!

unscrewed interdoor to expose harness. Replace
handle assembly.
Very easy to do and very satisfied with new part. I ordered 2 parts to make sure I had the actual one with door handle release. One of the assemblies came without the actual handle but at least if I have a switch problem I will have the Harness and switch assembly.

Happy Camper

handle was broken

Used a torx #20 driver to remove the screws off the back of the door. The handle and latch assembly was right at the top. A pair of pliers removed the electrical connectors. I attached the connectors to the new assemble and place it in the same spot. Replaced all the screws and it now works fine. Very easy repair.
