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

Piece of cake, 'even for a girl.' Removed the screws holding on door panel, used pliers to remove two electrical connections (throw the breaker first!)because they were so tight. Hooked up the new assembly, re-assembled door panel with screws, and that bad boy started right up. So proud to avoid a $150 service call with a $22 part!

Unit would not turn on.

After checking the door switch I found the micro switches were working but the unit would not start on the control panel. Thinking the latch was worn, I ordered a replacement. After changing the replacement latch and switches that came with it, the unit would still not start. I checked the switch and it is making contact. I can start the unit after I close the door using the handle of a pair of pliers. So I assume the control board is bad, due to the fact that it will not initialize the control panel until the door is closed. Now I have ordered a control board and will replace...stay tuned!!

Shut off the electric, Took off the door inside panel with a hex driver, found the latch to be broken, piece fell to the bottom of door. I used a needle nose pliers to take off the old piece, pushed the new part onto the contacts, replaced the screws, done. Found the lights on the door panel going off every few minutes, faulty switch, ordered a new one, came in lightning fast time, re installed all ok. Very easy for anyone, I am a 63 yr old woman, dont say I can't until you "TRY".

Turned power off at the breaker. Removed nine of the eleven screws that hold the inner door panel to the outer panel leaving the two bottom screws loosened but in place to retain the alignment between the two halves. Separated the two halves at the top by about three inches using folded dish towels to maintain the separation. The entire latch and handle assembly lifts out with the electrical connections in place. Carefully pried the push-on AMP type connectors off with a soft pry tool. Put connectors on the replacement latch switches and dropped the latch and handle back in place. Removed towels, put two door halves back in place, replaced all screws finger tight, assured that the door aligned with the mating face of the dishwasher cabinet (its very twist-able when the screws are loose)carefully tightened a couple of screws, again checking the door alignment with the cabinet and then final tightened the screws. Done

Door would not close - latch broken

1. Turned off power. 2. Unscrewed ten screws holding inside of door in place. 3. Lifted cover enough to access latch - helpful to have someone to hold this while doing the job. 4. Disconnected old latch assembly on each side - this was the hardest part as they were stiff and needed to be pulled hard. 5. Attached new latch assembly. 6. Screwed door panel back on. 7. Switched power back on. So easy and saved about $150. This stuff is NOT HARD and I just wish more people had the gumption to do repairs themselves instead of paying 'experts' to do exactly the same job.

Our local repairman retired so my husband and I decided we had nothing to loose in trying to repair our old dishwasher. We found the latch problem after we removed the inside door panel with allen wrenches, took phone pictures of the part and wrote down all of the numbers we could find. I went to the Part Select web site and tried to identify the part, but it seemed to be obsolete. I called the 888 number and talked to Ruben, the part was orderd in minutes and delivered in 2 days. We had sprayed the old part with WD 40 and the new part was installed in minutes-Perfect! Thank you!

Removed inner liner by removing screws, noted problem with handle being broken inside the door. Ordered replacement and swapped out parts. Job was a snap; just remember switches are hot so remove power source to washer before changing the switches.

I watched the video on how to remove and replace the handle, then, using a T20 star screwdriver, I removed the assembly following the steps in the video which let me see what I needed to order. Once I had the new assembly, I repeated the process and replaced the assembly. I used the pliers to pull/pry the wire terminals from the assembly. It was simple because I had seen it all done on the video.

The online video was perfect. The instructions were simple, straight forward, and easy to follow. I followed the directions without any problems. However, I didn't realize that I needed a star pattern screw driver to screw the screws on the perimeter of the door. But a very small screw driver worked and I avoided buying a special screw driver. The door latch fit perfectly.

The door latch assembly shipped and arrived in just 2 days and was ready to install. All I had to do was remove the inside panel (11 screws) and swap the latch assembly. There was even a video on the PartSelect's web site that showed how to make the repair. Only needed a star-blade screw driver (which I already had). Very easy.
