Door Handle Actuator Specifications

This is a handle actuator for your dishwasher. It is made of black plastic, and is sold individually. The handle actuator is found in the control panel, and it releases the door latch when you lift the handle. If your current handle actuator is cracked or broken, you may not be able to open your dishwasher door, or the door will not close properly. The dishwasher also may not be able to start, and if this is the case, you will need to replace this part.

    My dishwasher will no longer shut. The repectle on the back of the door for the latch wont allow the latch to enter. Is this the correct part to replace in this case?
    For model number GLD4408R10WW
    Hi Deidra, thank you for your question. If that is the part that is broken on your door latch then yes. You should be able to see which piece is broken as these are physical parts for the most part and not electrical. If you are not sure I would suggest just taking a deeper look at the parts to see if you notice any damage to be sure. I hope that helps. Good luck with your repair.

    Why is my dishwasher staying on rise only mode
    For model number GLD5600VV00BB
    Hello Tyrone, thank you for contacting us. Try unplugging the dishwasher or turning the breaker off for 60 seconds to reset the machine. If this does not solve the problem, you will need to replace the touch pad which is sold on the Escutcheon Assembly part PS2370581. We hope this helps.

    My GE profile quietpower 4 latch is wobbly in its place and will not allow the door to dishwasher to be opened. I don't have any space between top of dishwasher and bottom of countertop so i cannot even jiggle a thin and long allen wrench in the space. I was try to see if i snap the latch through the underside of latch, but that doesn't work either. I cannot seem to pull the dishwasher either. Help?!
    For model number PDW7880N10SS
    Hello Lucy, thank you for your question. To access that area you should open the door and unscrew the mounting plates from the counter top and pull the dishwasher out of its space a bit to access the latch area. You will want to check the Door Handle Actuator Part #: PS2337860, Retainer Handle - Black Part #: PS958991, Recess Door Spring Part #: PS285013, and latch handle Part #: PS259297. I hope this helps!

    Door will not open after cleaning. How do i open it? Latch seems broken.
    For model number PDW7300N10WW
    Hi Marie, Thank you for your inquiry. It sounds like you have to replace the the door latch. To open the door you may have to unplug the dishwasher for a few minutes and plug it back in to see if that will allow the door to open. If you have any issues you will need to consult your owners manual. I hope this helps. Thank you and have a great day!

    Hi, our dishwasher can be closed, but can not be opened normally. While it is close, we can't press start either.We have now select "spring plunger", "door handle actuator", "switch interlock assembly" as possible part broken. how can we test and determine which part should we change? thanks!
    For model number GDWF160R10SS
    Hello Min-Lee, thank you for inquiring. You can test the Interlock Switch Assembly, part number PS783632 for your model, with a multi-meter for continuity. With the switch pressed down, it should test as 0 ohms of resistance to have continuity. Otherwise it is faulty and will need to be replaced. Good luck with your repair!

      Door handle actuator was broken.
      I removed the screws on the inside of the door assembly, which allows the inside of the door to seperate from the outside. The escuchen (control panel) was easy to remove - the handle actuator is inside the control panel. The handle assembly was easy to take apart and re-assemble with the new handle and spring. I then inserted the control panel back into the outside door and reattached all of the screws with a power drill. This was a repair that a GE-authorized service tech told me was going to be over $540 - he claimed the control panel and door handle/actuator was a single assembly. In the end this repair cost me $14 in parts and 15 minutes of time. I complained to GE Consumer Affairs and they rebated the tech house call back to me in 5 business days.

      Smart Dispensor not despensing Detergent
      Removed front Door panel, by removing screws from back side of door, replaced pump, door handle actuator & spring. I did not have to remove the dishwasher from the counter (built in). Repairs took all of 20 min. and dishwasher was back in service. The price I paid for all the parts from PartSelect, was less then G.E. Repair Service wanted just to come out and look at the dishwasher ($99.50 plus parts & labor). The parts that online G.E Appliance was selling were about 25% to 40% higher in price. With total cost I figured I saved about $250.00 to $325.00 by doing it myself and the help of PartSelect.

      Actuator was broken
      When I first tried to fix the handle I could not figure out where the spring went. I went back online and looked at the diagram of the dishwasher on this site and learned where it went. Once I knew where every piece went it only took me about 5 minutes to put it back in and another 5 minutes to screw the cover back on. I am a newer homeowner and want to be able to do minor fixes. This was my first one and was very happy that I was able to do it on my own.

      Door Latch Broke
      This isn't a terribly tricky repair, and the parts are cheap so it's worth a try!

      (I had one tricky thing which was the door actuator broke while the door was shut. So I had to get the machine out of it's space without being able to open the front of the machine. I did this by lowering the feet in the front of the machine and then I used a hammer and flat chisel to break the two metal screws I had holding the top of the machine to the top of counter top...a little tricky!)

      Remove screws from inside lower panel (where you put soap..the bottom) this will allow you to remove the inside of the door. But be careful as there are still wires attached so be careful to place the inside part without stressing the wires.

      I needed to remove the metal harness and to open the black rectangular box that holds the interlock plunger so I could remove the plunger and spring (don't lose..and remember how it goes. take pictures if necessary). Then I was able to remove the broken actuator and see how it all fits together. It rests on top of the latch with notched side facing the inside of the machine. Make sure the notch is centered around where the interlock plunger is located.

      Once you have the pieces fit together insert them into the door. Replace the plunger and spring and close the black rectangular box. Then replace the metal harness.

      Hold everything in place and put the inside of the door back into position and lock it down with the screws.

      You can test the door to make sure it's working but the whole mechanism is less functional when the machine isn't secured into its space. So, if you're mostly sure you've got it right, resecure the machine into its space making sure it's solid and then you should be good.

      Like most everyone here I was very happy to accomplish this repair without calling in the repair service!! Awesome.

      It makes a beeping sound in the middle of the dishwashing.
      Remove the screws from the door and replace the switch interlock and door latch.

      The problem is fixed and the dishwasher works fine so far (about three weeks) now.

      The source of the problem looks more like the door latch because I use to push the door in to get it going before I replace the parts.

      The video I received via email that show the how to do it was very helpful.

      ————-
      Update after more than month. (12/30/2020)
      The problem still persists. However I have a possible solution for it that doesn’t require any parts at all. The entire dishwasher is tilted backward. As the washing started and the water pileup in the bottoms of the dishwasher, it pull the entire dishwasher back work causing the switch interlock to release (open the relay causing the door open been sounds).

      Level the dishwasher so that it doesn’t tilt backwards and this should fix the issue. I will post the latest after a month. If you need more info I can send a picture to describe the issue more clearly.
      —————————
      Update 01-06-2021
      The problem still persists. The above theory I had was wrong and didn’t make any difference.

      However, I have a permanent solution but it may not be ideal for most people ??. The relay that get close/open when the door is close/open is now always CLOSED. To start the dishwasher just press start and make sure you don’t open the door while the dishwasher is running. It will not stop. I am sorry and I know it’s not a good solution but it’s kind of funny.
