Question:

So my door latch is hanging from my dishwasher. And I cant open the door bc its locked. I read that I can lift the door up and jerk it. Sounds easy enough. BUT will I break anything if I do this? I dont want to jerk it open if it breaks something else.

David
Answer:

Hi David, great question. You are right, the only way to open a jammed door would be to lift the door and with controlled movements to jerk it outwards. Before attempting this, we recommend checking the dishwasher to make sure it is properly mounted so that the jerking movement does not slide it out of place and hurt the dishwasher. Otherwise, by doing this you will not be at risk for breaking anything. Just be careful and give yourself some space. I hope this helps.

Question:

My handle broke off of my white dish washer and I don’t see this part in another color is this what I need to order? And do I need to order the whole assembly? Do they come separately? Also I have never replaced it does it come with instructions?

Jamie
Answer:

Hello Jamie. This is the correct assembly WPW10130695 for your white dishwasher, and it includes everything you need to replace the handle. To begin this repair, unplug your dishwasher or disconnect the power. You will want to remove the screws that are holding the inner door to remove the inner door panel. You will see wires leading to the old latch assembly, remove them and the assembly. Using the same steps but backwards you can connect the new assembly, put it back in place, and reattach the inner door panel. Good luck with this repair!

Question:

When i press the start button the delay wash timer comes up at 2 hours. It will not let me turn it off. Also the door latch handle is broken off. Could these be related?

Michael for model number mdb8600aww
Answer:

Hi Michael, Thank you for your inquiry. If it is just the handle that is broken off the latch, the latch should still be operational and it should not cause this issue. I would try unplugging the dishwasher and plugging it back in to see if this resets it. If this does not work, press the delay start pad until the hours of delay indicator goes off. For further information, you will need to check your owner's manual. I hope this helps. Thank you and have a great day!

Hi, my dishwasher will not start. Replaced the whole latch assembly and continue to have the same problem. When I push the start button, the heated dry, wash/dry and normal light shows but very dim. The normal wash light never comes on, only dim when pushing the start button.

Tim for model number MDBH945AWW
Answer:

Hi Tim, Thank you for the question.It sounds like the Electronic Control Board needs to be replaced. This board controls the appliance and the lights. If the lights are dim and the appliance is not starting, chances are the board is not powering up properly and needs to be replaced. Hope this helps!

Olivia for model number MDBH975AWB

Hi Olivia, Thank you for your question. There are a couple of parts that could be causing that problem. You should check your door switches, the wiring of your appliance, your control board, and your touch pad. I hope that helps. Good luck with your repair.

Question:

My dishwasher panel still operates. I can select cycles, and the dishwasher will fill. If I press cancel, it will drain per usual. When I start the dishwasher the machine fills, but then something doesn't work as expected and the machine times out. When it times out there is no error code or blinking light. The whole control panel just goes dark.

John for model number MDB8600AWS
Answer:

Hi John, Thank you for the question.Sounds like the control board is not going through all of the proper cycles and needs to be replaced. If the door latch was the issue the dishwasher would not start to fill or start going through the cycles at all. Hope this helps!

Question:

My dishwasher will not run and the touch pad will not respond or light up. Before this happened none of the lights on the control pad would not work for the last year or so. The machine is getting power to the board and the other components. It is not making any noises like it is trying to start a cycle. From what I am reading the door latch is the most likely culprit, but it does not appear to have any physical damage and I tested the micro switches and they seem to have continuity when the button is pushed in. I am not sure how to test the motherboard or the control panel. Thanks for your help!

Todd for model number MDC4650AWW
Answer:

Hi Todd, Thank you for the question. Going by what you described it sounds like the board will need to be replaced. You should find your tech. data/wiring diagram, in a bag taped to the backside of the kickplate panel, it will give you the resistance readings and pin locations to test with a multi meter. Hope this helps!

Door latch was broken and also plastic in center of control panel

Removed all screws from the perimeter of the inner door panel

Removed (2) connectors from inner door panel and set it aside. Note this was difficult, but was finally accomplished by using a pliers and pulling on the connector body.
Instructions should be included on how to remove these to prevent damage.

Removed circuit board plastic cover.
Unplugged Flex circuit conductor strip from circuit board.
Removed control panel and door latch asm from outer door panel.
Replaced parts in reverse order.

Problem: The flexible conductor strip attached to the control panel had a sticky red adhesive at the tip extending about 3 inches and was stuck onto the panel. Was this for shipping reasons?
Anyway, the sticky goo would not let the strip plug into the circuit board or make a reliable connection.

The Dishwasher worked for one day then would not operate the next day.
I had to disassemble the panels again and clean the glue off with Goo Gone. I was taking a chance because I didn't know if the Goo Gone would affect the carbon conductors on the strip.
Anyway, it now is working again.

Suggestion: You need to include instructions about attaching the flat conductor strip to the circuit board.
Also, It does not seem proper to put the glue over the connector end of the strip. Even though the glue was on the side of the strip opposite the actual carbon conductors it got all over everything just due to handling and had to be cleaned off.
I would suggest tape or something more easily removed or apply the glue away from the tip a couple of inches or more.

Door latch failed

Turn-off the dishwasher power at the circuit breaker. Open the dishwasher door flat. Remove the 11 screws around the perimeter of the door using a t-20 torx bit (available at any hardware store). The latch assembly is held on by the top middle two door screws. Pull latch assembly out from top of door. Remove the black and white cable assembly connectors from the latch assembly making sure to note which side each color is on. If you have trouble sliding the connector off, use a flat screwdriver carefully to pry it, but do not pull on the wires. Install cable connectors onto new latch assembly making making sure the black and white cables are on the correct sides. Position the door at a 45 degree angle and place the latch assembly into position while putting the white inner door over it. Reinstall the 11 torx screws around the side of the door being sure the screws are snug, but not overtightened. Test the operation of your dishwasher. The new latch assembly seems to be built better than the factory original.

Broken latch

Used torx bit to remove screws on door and removed the back of door. Removed wiring from switches (2) on broken latch and removed latch. Plugged in switches on new latch and placed latch in position. Screwed back of door into place and that was it! Very simple task and new latch looks and feels much more sturdy than old one.

The latch handle broke, and then the control panel

1. Removed the screws holding the front panel on
2. Turned off the power (should have done this first!)
3. Disconnected the two wire set(s) to the latch handle. Had to use a screwdriver to pry them off, as they are very tight. Do not pull on the wires! Remember to mark which side is the white and which is the black.
4. Disconnected electrical circuit board ribbon cable that connects the control panel to the circuit board box (big black box with many wires running to it) by tugging on it (since it gets discarded along with the old control panel, you don't care if it gets damaged). Remember to mark which side of the cable goes in which side of the box (the pattern of wires varies by side - one side has thin wires going to thick, the other side is the reverse)
5. Removed screws holding control panel onto front of dishwasher - control panel and latch handle now slide off and were discarded.
6.a. This was the tricky part - reconnecting the circuit board ribbon cable to the circuit board box. You have to slide a thin, flexible ribbon cable into the mating connector in the black box. I found this impossible to do by just pushing on it, so I had to disassemble the circuit board box. To do this, remove all 4 wire sets - two of them just pull off, and two of them have small latches that you need to depress with a small flat screwdriver and pull simultaneously. Not really hard, just don't yank hard on the two sets with the latch or you might break them. Fortunately, I don't think you have to mark anything, since I think all the wires can only go back in the right way when you are done (but if in doubt, mark them!) Unscrew the screw on the black box and it opens up easily.
6b. Look at where the ribbon cable connects, and you'll note the connector has a two piece design - one part slides in and out by, oh, 1/8th of an inch. Pull the one part out and then insert the ribbon cable, and when you push the connector part back in, it draws the ribbon cable in nicely
7. Reassemble everything -
black circuit box
wire sets to latch handle
etc.

The circuit box ribbon cable is the key here - if it goes back in the wrong way, or not inserted far enough, your dishwasher won't work, and you'll get to do it all over again...

Broken door latch

First and foremost, turn off the power to the dishwasher at the breaker panel. Next, open the door and remove all of the Torx screws along the door edge, except the bottom two. The inner skin will open enough, and there is sufficient slack in the wires, to change out the latch assembly without completely removing the whole inner door skin. Next, remove the wire harness plug from the right switch and then insert it onto the right switch of the new assembly. Do the same with the wires for the left switch. Note, you may need a pair of pliers to remove the wire connector from the switches. Place the switch back in place, lining up the screw holes properly, and replace all of the Torx screws. Turn the breaker back on and you are done.

Not only could I get the part from PartSelect.com quicker than I could from Sears, the total cost with shipping was the same as Sears wanted for just he part!

Broken door latch

First, I recommend asking PartSelect for help to insure you have correct part. They tell me the pictures on the web site are provided by Maytag and are copywrited so they can't change them. The pictures are incorrect and misleading. However, it's a known problem, so the PartSelect people will steer you in the right direction. Bottom line in my case, I needed the lower cost part that included more pieces (counter-intuitive so I was glad I called). Got the right part the first time in about 3 days regular shipping.

As far as install, you need a "Torx" screwdriver (screw heads have a star-like pattern) to remove the screws along the inside of the door. From there, the old latch is accessible and easy to remove. As others have mentioned, the hardest part is removing the wire harnesses on either side of the latch. They have a slide on compression clip holding them on, and I think that time and ambient moisture must cause them to get stuck very tightly. I originally thought there was something locking them on, but in the end, I was able to pull and wiggle them loose with by applying slight inward pressure on the prongs with long nose pliers. You have to be careful not to damage the parts when attempting to pull them apart. It's nice that the part I ordered includes new switches, so if I caused any damge removing the old ones, it didn't matter. Just take extra care on the side with the wires and plastic connectors, since those parts aren't included and are more involved to replace if you damage them.

Overall, a very simple repair. The repair stories from others on the site were very helpful and gave me confidence when I ran into the small snag mentioned, since others had the same problem. Hopefully the additional detail I've provided on that issue will help fill any gaps.

The seals were deteriorated at the lower part of the door and allowed leaks. The door latch broke out twice, so replaced whole handle mechanism this time.

The repair is simple open the door and remove the perimeter screws and lift the door panel up. Be careful of attached wires. The handle only requires that you remove two electrical connectors and reconnect to the new latch handle and realign it with the screw holes in the door panel. The seals are not as easy to change they are attached with spring clips that I had to snipe through to get the old seals off. The new seals did not come with new spring clips, so I flattened the clips and reused them, they did not hold as tight, but seemed to work. Then just reinstall the panel.

Plastic handle latch was cracked and door was very difficult to open/close

First turned off power to dishwasher. Then, I removed all the screws on the dishwasher door. Removed old plastic door latch from wire assembly piece. Pressed on latches for square small wire boxes connected to wire assembly piece to be able to handle wire assembly plastic piece without attachment to dishwasher. Tried to snap door handle to wire assembly plastic piece, but didn't seem to fit - was too tight. Checked for discussion online and found that it required heavy pressure to snap in place. Used pliers to clamp down on outer plastic on wire assembly piece to squeeze fit door latch plastic hooks in place. This was difficult, but with heavy pressure finally managed to snap in outer hooks. Then with difficulty snapped in inner hooks. Was afraid of breaking new plastic piece, but all worked out well. Door has never opened and closed so well!!

Door latch broken

First, we removed all of the screws around the perimeter of the interior door panel and lifted it up. (we didn't take it completely off because that would have required disconnecting wires so we just held it up out of the way.)

Second, the plastic on the latch assembly was broken so that part came out fairly easily. The hard part was disconnecting the metal prongs that plug it in to the door control wires. We tried everything--prying, pulling--and finally got all three of us in there. One pulled on the latch end of the prongs, the other pulled on the door wiring end of the prongs, and I squeezed the prongs in-between with needle nose pliers. This broke the prongs on the latch side, which was fine since we were replacing the entire latch (the directions in the service manual we downloaded didn't give any indication that disconnecting the prongs would be difficult--I feel like there must be a trick to it, but breaking the prongs worked fine too!)

Third, we plugged in the prongs of the new latch--went in easily!--and popped the new latch into place in the door. It wasn't held securely, probably because of the broken plastic, but we replaced the inner door and screwed it in place, and when we shut the door it worked.

Latch handle broke

I removed eight screws and installed the new parts. The replacement factory parts are better then the originals and the latch handle should not break again. Had I called for service it would have cost $149 (not incuding parts) just for them to show up to look at it and tell me that they need to order these same parts. Plus, I would have had to wait an addtional two weeks for them to order the parts and come back to do the repair since most service companies do not carry parts with them. Their parts are marked up and would have cost 30% more for the same factory parts I order from you. The parts including shipping were $36.30 and I had the repair completed in three days, including standard shipping time. Quite a savings! and very easy to complete the repair.

Thank you!
