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

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.

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.

The handle was broken and I wasn't sure if the latch was also so I ordered both. didn't realize that the handle comes with the latch attached. oh well

Removed all the screws lining the inside edge of the door. Two of the screws along the top also hold the handle/latch assembly in place. I removed the two wiring harnesses and attached them to the new assembly and set it in place and put the all the screws back. Worked great. I'm glad it was something easy like a handle.

Had to pull the inner skin off the dishwasher after taking out the 11 screws and the handle litterally falls out when you pull the shell up --unhook the two(2) sensor plugs put the new handle in its place-hook the sensors back on and screw the shell back on in no more then 15-20 minutes.

(Remember to turn off power to appliance before replacement of the door latch) Removed the 11 #20 Secrews from the inner door panel, then carefully removed the wire harnes from each side of the door latch assembly. It was very dificult to get the wire harness from the latch so use caution, and remember wich harnes goes to eacy side for install. Then put wire harness back on and put inner panel in place and install the 11 #20 screws back in place. Turn on power and job is complete.

First, DISCONNECT POWER! After opening the door I took all the screws out except the screws on each side next to the hinge. this will help the inside panel from sliding off when you raise the door up to get the assembly out. Once i got all the screws out the handle assembly was ready to pull the wire harness off. you can pull the assembly just outside the edge of the inside panel before any wires get pulled or insulation comes loose. i had to tug more then i thought i needed to but after working it back and forth it came off. after each side wiring was off, i took the broke one out and reattached the wires to the new one, reset the handle in the door in the molded spot, put screws back in and all done! no more doing dishes the old way! Good luck, took longer to open the package then replace the door latch.

I removed about 10 screws that held the inside plastic liner to the frame of the washer door. Inside I found the latch that was clearly broken away from the assembly. The assembly has 2 electrical switches that are always energized, which I discovered when I got zapped. I carefully unclipped the energized switches from the broken assembly and clipped them to the new door latch assembly and replaced all of the screws. Done.
