    Can this be installed by the owner or do you have to have a repairman do this
    For model number KUDP02CRWH3
    Hi Phyllis, Thank you for your question. You could definitely install this yourself if you think that you could do it. Here is a video that should show you how that installation goes: https://youtu.be/oLZ-7Py_hFQ . Good luck with your repair.

    For model number KUDP02CRWH1
    Hi James, assuming the model number is correct you may need only the one wire I would contact the manufacturer to makes sure. Thank you for your question and good luck with your repair!

    My dishwasher control panel lights up when i push normal wash but will not flash twice when i push start. As a result the wash cycle fails to start. I am assuming that the problem is the door latch. Do you have any guidance? Can i return the part if this does not fix the problem?
    For model number KUDP01FLSS6
    Hi Shayne, thank you for your question. Generally for an issue like this the door latch would be one of the parts to check. If that part is fine you may want to check the wiring for any damage. If those parts are both fine then it may be your control that is the issue. We have a 30 day Return Policy. More information can be found here: https://www.partselect.com/Thirty-Day-Returns.htm. Good luck with your repair.

        latch pops open on door during cycle...
        Replaced strike plate...but may not have needed it ...He used a screw under the front of the strike plate as a wedge to increase tension...He said this has happened to this model before and an old tech told him about this fix...
        It must be a defect in the model that after a while the strike plate needs more tension..sent unopened ,unused parts back

        Door pops open easily
        We have been living with this problem for a couple of years. My wife resorted to leaning a chair with a bag of potatoes against the door. As time went on, she had to use heaver and heaver potatoes. Soon, nothing would hold the door shut. As a last resort (after calling Kitchen Aid and finding out my extended warranty that was paid for 5 years wouldn't cover the repair due to some technicality), I decided to try and replace all three items that could contribute to the door not staying shut. The Strike Plate, Door Latch and Door Seal. Parts were easy to find on the web site and delivered from PartSelect in record time. The installation was fairly easy. I loosened the star head screws holding the Stainless outer front panel to the inner panel. These are located all around the inside of the door. The Stainless front panel then separated a bit, like a "V". I didn't completely remove the front panel as there seemed to be some wires connected that I didn't want to mess with. So I just tilted it forward and reached inside to remove the 2 screws holding the door latch. Replaced it and the door seal. Removing the strike plate required slipping a knife under the plate and releasing the spring prongs from he sides. It all seemed very intuitive. Even though we were expecting to be dishwasher shopping the next day - The door stayed shut and has worked great now for a month.

        Unit started only intermittently and then finally fail to start at all.
        Unplugged unit from power source.Removed the screws fastening the interior panel to the door. Removed latch assembly from the door after disconnecting two wires to the microswitch. Removed microswitch from the latch assembly, then installed same microswitch in new latch assembly. Re-connected wires and re-installed latch assembly. Re-installed interior panel with screws. Re-connected unit to power source. Tested unit. Has started reliably ever since.

        Door would not remain closed stopping the cycle.
        After replacing the door latch which was not faulty I learned fron a local appliance repair company the door was distorted as a result of an earlier failure of the cable assembly breaking. The door opened with such great force hiting my leg and apparently distorted the door or machine frame. The fix was to bundle a towel and place it between the door and dishwasher sides, one at a time, and forcing the door in a closing direction to bend the door and frame. After several attempts the door now closes well and remains shut during the cycle.

        Lights flashing, wouldn't turn on
        First changed motherboard and door switch, which didn't fix the problem. Inspected door latch and saw that one of the tabs was broken. Replaced latch and problem solved.

        Door latch not working
        Watch a YouTube video to replace the latch. The strike, removes easily by gently prying out with a screw driver on both sides. You do NOT have to pull out the dishwasher as some you tube videos show.

        first latch broke, then appliance wouldn't start
        First I ordered and replaced latch assembly...very easy and straight forward. When dw wouldn't start I ordered a door switch which I observed was worn down. After that, everything works like new. Instructional video was perfect! Just follow the steps, go slow, and don't over tighten. Easy! Total cost less than $80.
