Latch Handle Specifications

This part is the replacement latch handle for your dishwasher. It is made of black plastic and is approximately 5 inches by 1 inch.

The main reason to replace the latch handle is if it is cracked or broken. This part is sold individually and is an OEM part from the manufacturer.

    Dishwasher will not start all the time sometimes you have to shut the door several times before start and is getting worse this is a GE dishwasher what might cause this
    For model number GLD5560L00SS
    Hi Lowell, Thank you for the question. I suggest removing the latch assembly to see if there are any damaged parts that will need to be replaced. If there is nothing that is visibly damaged, you may need to replace the interlock switches. Hope this helps!

        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.
