The door latch broke & dishwasher wouldn't start.

First I removed the 9 screws holding the front panel of dishwasher on. I then removed the 2 screws holding the latch on and unplugged the 4 wires that was connected to the latch. Then I plugged the 4 wires into the new latch screwed the new latch in place with the 2 screwsI had removed. Put the front panel back in place and screwed it down with the 9 screws I had removed. And the dishwasher is working like it should now. It took me about 10 min, to do the job.

Broken latch

I simply removed the screws to the door of the dishwasher and removed the panel. Then I unscrewed the old broken latch by pulling the wires and removing two more screws. Put on the new latch and door and it was done. about 10 min. was all it took and I saved about $100 by not calling a repairman. The parts even came with easy directions. Thanks!

Handle broken

Everything was super easy except getting the door panel back on. I later read I may not have had to remove the panel to replace the handle but I did. The panel was difficult to hold in place as the screws are replaced and took two people.

Handle broke during use.

First I removed the cover plate over the front of the dish washer. I then removed the old handle and disconnected the 4 wires one at a time, hooking them to the new handle one at at time, in the correct pattern. Positioned the new handle and screwed in the 2 screws needed to secure the handle back in place. A very simple replacement.

Broken latch

Removed 6 screws to remove housing.
Removed 2 screws to remove old latch disconnected 4 female plug connectors.
Reconnect the 4 plugs to the new switch & re-mounted it with the 2 screws. Slight misalignment (which may have been present before the repair) was corrected by bumping the metal latch receiver withe the handle of the screw driver just a bit. Works perfectly.

Latch quit functioning

New latch comes with new gasket. The instructions are simple enough for the installation, but the new gasket needed some compressing before the latch would stay in the "closed" position without popping back open (due to the thickness of the new gasket in the lower area). I tried reinstalling the gasket a couple of times, nothing helped. It just took some time to compress. Also, the new latch varies slightly from the original, but still works perfectly.
