Computer board and handle switch replacement
The YouTube video gave me the confidence that I could do the repair and it helped greatly.
One problem with dealing with a 19 year old dishwasher is that the plastic screw supports on the top/front outside cover tend to break off as they are brittle. This is a real problem on reassembly. I used super glue on some of the plastic parts that I could find. The glue job did not always hold. Consequently, the inside cover is a bit loose on the top, but all is working great. We should get a few more years out of this machine, which now works great.
The 2 parts (Computer board and switch handle) should both probably always be put in on the repair, since it is already taken apart.

Dishwasher operation intermittent
advisor showed a 30% chance that the part in question would solve my problem and it did. Had help from my 12 year old so it was a great teaching moment. She particularly liked when I forgot a part in final installation and she had to remind me to install before closing up the repair. 15 minutes total. Awesome fun!

Dishwasher stopped in between it's cycles until door was wiggled and pushed in again
Kill power to unit. Lower door. Hold down door and remove inner plastic door cover torx screws, rotate up and use inner door cover to brace outer spring loaded door from closing. lift off metal strap that runs along top edge of door. Unsnap black plastic cover.Latch is under cover. Unplug wires with pliers (they just pull off) after noting where they go. Unscrew single hex head screw and remove latch assembly. inside latch will be reused with the new latch switch holder. Pry up plastic clip keepers and remove inside latch. Depending on age they might break, no big deal you will use the new holder anyway. orient and install switches into holder, install inner latch and install assembly back onto door. Install wires, cover, metal strip and inner door in reverse order. Very easy to do. Parts worked perfect.

Dishwasher would not run unless you pressed very hard on the door and would stop when you released pressure on door.
With watching Video on line it was fairly simply, my son knew exactly what to do, it took him about 20 minutes from start to completion and when tested, dishwasher ran great. We have used it six times and have not had a problem. I would highly recommend this part if you are having the same problem. The video was very good.

Dishwasher would not come on without having to put tremendous pressure on door
The repair was very easy. I watched a video on youtube to be sure that I was doing it correctly. I consisted of removing 6 or 7 screws, taking off the cover that houses the electronics, removing a screw from the door latch. The wires were then removed from the old switches and placed on the new ones. We then popped the new switches in the new door assembly and reversed our steps. The hardest part was pulling the wires from the old switches. I was not strong enough to pull one of them off and had to have my neighbor come over to help. Other than that, it was a breeze!

The door was not closing properly and did not engage the switch to start the washing cycle
I removed the inner door panel and carefully disconnected the wires. Then i removed the switch. I then reversed the process replacing the new switch carefully connecting the wires and securing the switch. Then I connected the inner door panel and everything worked fine.

Dishwasher would not run unless constant pressure was applied to keep dishwasher closed tight. After a few months of "rigging it shut" to make it run, that temporary solution no longer worked.
Turn off circuit breaker to dishwasher.Remove inner door panel by unscrewing 7 screws. Remove metal strip near top of door and black plastic covering. Unscrew single screw with socket screwdriver. Disconnect black switches from wires and lift out old part. Remove handle latch from old part to insert into new part. Connect new black switches to wires and insert switches into holder. Put new assembled part into door. Reassemble all parts that had been removed. Turn on circuit breaker. Run dishwasher!

My dishwasher will not cycle when the door is closed and latched the timer won’t even move, but as soon as i release the latch and open the door slightly the machine begins to cycle and the timer begins to move. It doesn’t matter where i turn the knob. It behaves like this in all positions. Is this a latch/switch issue?
For model number MDB6000AWA
PartSelect logo
Hello Art, thank you for your question. Yes, the first part I would recommend replacing would be the door latch and switches. It sounds like the switch is activating when the unit is opened and stopping when its closed, instead of vice versa. The part number to replace is PartSelect Number: PS2099645. I hope this helps!

How to check continuity of door switch.
For model number MDB4100AWW

Hello Dennis, Thank you for your inquiry. You can check the continuity with a multimeter. I have included a link to a video on troubleshooting a dishwasher door latch and it shows how to test the switch. Hope this helps! https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=2Jy2G2FNSWg

Your data indicates that the most likely candidate for my dishwasher stopped working is because of the latch switch. However, you don't mention the timer, which, of course, is no longer available. What if the timer no longer works? Is there a way to tell if it is the timer of latch with switch without replacing one of them?
For model number 9200 aaX
PartSelect logo
Hi Hank, Thank you for your question. Yes, you can test both of those parts with a multi meter to determine whether or not they are broken. There are two micro switches on your door latch that you will test, and then just your timer. I hope that helps. Good luck with your repair.

Ok. So i just installed this part and double checked that everything was installed according to the video. The dishwasher still doesn't start unless i push the door really hard closed. I even moved the hook-latch (ps2098991) back so the door would close more, but now it's really hard to close the door. Even so, it will start if i continue to push and hold the door, but it stops when i let go. Is there some lower door adjustment? From the side it looks like the bottom of the door is much closer to the frame(?) than the top of the door is. I think if the bottom can be move out a bit, it would work. Please advise. Thanks in advance!!

Is there a way to buy just the micro switch (as opposed to the entire latch assembly)?

Hi Zachary, Thank you for your question. Unfortunately it looks like those switches only come with the holder assembly. Good luck with your repair.
