- Door Latch Assembly (Black)
CustomerJill from PA
Handle broke and door wouldn't open
Screwdriver with Torx Bit, Needle Nose Pliers
Repair & Advice
First I shut off the breaker to my dishwasher. My original handle was still working enough that I was still able to get the door open with some effort. Once I had the door open I remove the star shaped torx screws holding the inside door panel in place. With those removed I lifted the inner door panel out and now had access to the door latch. The wire plugs on the old door latch were stuck in place so I used a needle nose pliers to grab onto the plugs and wiggle them back and forth to loosen and remove them. Next I installed the new door latch and re-installed in the reverse order. I was happy to see that the new part I ordered from Parts Dr was an improved design over the original and it looks like it should last longer than the original.
