Product Description

Door Latch Specifications

This is replacement door latch for your dishwasher. The door latch is attached to the tub frame, and connects to the door strike to keep your dishwasher door closed during operation. If you have a broken or faulty door latch, your dishwasher door may not stay closed, and this can prevent the dishwasher from running. This item is sold individually, and if your door strike is also damaged, you will need to replace that part separately. This is an OEM part sourced directly from the manufacturer.

The lights won't come on my dishwasher. It seems it has no power but it does have hot power running to it
For model number GDF540HSD0SS
Hi Ronny, Thank you for your inquiry. There may be connection issue between the electronic control board and the touchpad. I would try unplugging it for 10 minutes and plugging it back in to see if that fixes the issue. If not I would use a multimeter to see which part is causing the issue. I hope this helps. Thank you and have a great day!

Will this part work for my actual model number? The model number in the drop box is one digit different than the model number stamped on my dishwasher. Also, i have no lights on my control panel. Will this latch restore power to my controls?
For model number GDT580SMF2ES
Hi David, Thank you for your question. This is the correct part for your model number. The door latch could be the part that is causing that problem but you may have to check your control board and your wiring for any burn marks or discoloration. It could be either your latch or your board. I hope that helps. Good luck with your repair.

The door will not close right or sometimes in middle of a cycle will unlatch and the start light is blinking Green. What would cause this. Sometimes i have to hold the door shut while it's cycling so pressure doesn't move it to where start button comes on
For model number GDF510PGD6BB
Hi Patsy, Thank you for your question. If the door opens during a wash cycle, then you will need to check the door latch and the latch striker to see which part is causing the issue. I hope this helps. Thank you and have a great day!

Lights are on. Press start and light comes on start button. Shut door and it doesn’t run. Nothing.
For model number GDT635HMJ2ES
Hello Darren, thank you for writing. You will want to consider replacing the Door Latch, part number PS6447681, or the Latch Striker, part number PS8690622. You may also want to consider the Flood Switch, part number PS8690623 for your model as the cause. Good luck with your repair!

I had this dishwasher installed when i had my kitchen remodeled 3 years ago. Because i live alone i hardly ever used it (8-10 times). I did try to run it recently and it won't start. I turned off the circuit breaker (30+ seconds), depressed and held 'start' and 'select cycle' buttons. All the lights came on for 3-4 seconds then went off. Now 'lock controls' light is on but nothing else lights up. ?
For model number GDF520PGJ2WW
Hello Dana, thank you for writing. Replacing this Door Latch part number PS6447681 for your model dishwasher should fix the issue. You may also want to consider the main control board, or Service Machine Control, part number PS12726419. Good luck with your repair!

Had a power surge and have replaced the control board and iu board and also the door latch. Now my iu board comes on and off at random times. Wondering if the new door latch could be bad and causing fluctuations turning it on/off.
For model number GDT655SGJ0BB
Hello Wyatt, Thank you for your inquiry. You can test the switch with a multimeter to see if it is functioning properly. If you are unfamiliar with how a multimeter functions, there are YouTube videos available to assist you. You may also have an issue with the wiring. Hope this helps!

I have this dishwasher just for a year,,,,no lights,,,,but the power it's ok,,,,i was planing to buy the door latch.Any help please.
For model number General electric model. GDF620HGJ2WW
Hi Fernando, Thank you for your question. If your dishwasher is not turning on, the part that fixes the issue the majority of the time is the door latch. If the door latch is not the issue, you will need to check the touchpad, the electronic control board and the wiring between the touchpad and the electronic control board. I hope this helps. Thank you and have a great day!

    Door latch not functioning
    1. Turn off breaker supplying power to dishwasher in electrical panel
    2. Open dishwasher door
    3. Unscrew the screws that secure the dishwasher to the counter.
    4. Tip dishwasher forward. Identify the non-functioning door latch. It looks exactly like the replacement. Unclip the wire harness from the door latch.
    5. On the inside of the dishwasher, there are 2 screws directly under the door latch. Unscrew them and carefully set aside.
    6. Remove old door latch.
    7. Set new door latch in place. Holding securely, replace screws removed in step 5. Toward the end they get a little tougher to screw in.
    8. Plug wire harness into new door latch.
    9. Re-align dishwasher and re-secure to counter in previous position.
    10. Test latch to make sure it closes properly.
    11. Turn on breaker in electrical panel.
    The dishwasher should now function properly.

    Door would pop open after starting dishwasher numerous times before latching would catch.
    Removed two latch screws and one electrical connection, Removed
    two screws that hold D/W to countertop, pulled D/W out enough to remove the old latch, install new latch, push D/W back into place, rescrew to counter top and rescrew the two latch screws. This problem happened since new, had repairmen twice and they did nothing but move the dishwasher stating it needed alignment, never mentioned this easy repair....

    Broken door latch and springs were not connected.
    Looked up the replacement part on YouTube, watched a video and followed the instructions. Part ordered was the correct part and the video showed how to access for replacing. Watched a different video for hooking up the disconnected springs that allow the door to lower and close smoothly. Whole process for repairs was less than 30 minutes.
