Door would not latch shut
Following a utube video made it easy. Removed the outer cover of the door to expose latch. Two screws remove the latch, pay attention to how it was positioned and put the new one on and then replace the panel. But first turn off the electricity to the unit at the fuse box. Read more...

Soap Cup Latch Kit
★★★★★
★★★★★
(7)
PartSelect Number PS382922
Manufacturer Part Number 676413
This soap cup latch kit, used in a dishwasher, will keep the dispenser cover closed. If your dishwasher will not dispense detergent, there is a door latch failure, the dishes are not cleaning properly, or there is leaking, then this kit can be the solution to your symptoms. The tools required for this replacement are a #15 torx bits, a small blade screwdriver, and slip joint pliers. First locate the soap box and remove the latch on both sides. Next step is to remove the screws in the inner door panel and remove the plastic cover at the back. Remove the old latch assembly and add the new one. Make sure to unplug your dishwasher before beginning this installation project.

Installation Instructions
Steven from Edmond, OK
Latch broke on dishwasher
Look at the exploded parts diagram, that parts select provides on their website.

You have to take off the nine star pointed screws. So you need a special screwdriver or I had a socket set of them and I used a ratchet to make it easier. I think there are nine of them around the base of the door. Then remove the door and set it on the counter. Flip it over and there is a small plastic cover that has to be removed from the back of it, and it is easily removed by gently pulling on it.

Now comes the difficult part. There is a locking piece on it that holds the latch onto the door by interlocking with a piece on the back side of the door. I took a pair of wire snips and just cut the old interlocking piece off. This way I didn't have to try and slide the two interlocking pieces apart.

When you go to put the new piece on before you interlock them make sure they are put on right. Specifically the latch is pointing the right way to seal the detergent door. Otherwise it can be a pain to separate the interlocking pieces again. (which is why I cut it off the old one).

Then you're done. Just put it all back together.

Installation Instructions
Nigel from Boca Raton, FL
The door handle broke inside so that it was all loose and was difficult to close.
Recoved the screws which secured the handle assembly (approx 8). Removed the old parts and screwed home the new parts and replaced the assembly. Worked perfectly.

The hardest thing for me was to decipher the model number as they use '1s' and 'Is' and you can't tell them apart.

Also the part diagrams should have each part number listed to make it easier. Took me longer to work out what to order than do the repair.

Door Latch Bolt
★★★★★
★★★★★
(5)
PartSelect Number PS11741367
Manufacturer Part Number WP3380854
This is a door latch bolt for a dishwasher. The door latch bolt fits on the top of the dishwasher door to keep the door closed while the appliance is running. The latch also prevents the dishwasher from running when the door is not closed, so your dishwasher may not run if the door latch bolt has been compromised. This part does not include the latch lever, so consider ordering that part as well if necessary. It is made entirely of plastic, is black in colour, and is approximately 3.5 inches wide. To access the latch bolt, you will need to remove the inner door panel of your dishwasher.

Installation Instructions
Thomas from Dunwoody, GA
Broken latch on dishwasher prevented operation
Photograph or diagram how the wires connect to the switches before taking out the old assembly. I could have salvaged switches from the old assembly by pulling out the white pins (and avoided buying the new switch kit). There's only one way the pieces go back together, so the wire connections are the only point that required special care and attention. Read more...

PartSelect Number PS11751646
Manufacturer Part Number WPW10274884
This is replacement door latch for your dishwasher. It is made of black plastic and is approximately 5 inches by 5 inches. 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.
