Handle Replacement How do you replace the "latch" handle on the latch assembly?? I have both of the parts but there is no way of installing the handle on the latch assembly. Thank You

    The latch was previously replaced while the unit was under a repair contract. Now it's no longer covered and the latch is broken again. Is this something I should be able to fix? (I'm not very technical...)

    I'm very leery of paying to have it fixed again if it's just going to break again. There's nothing else wrong with the dishwasher... Do you know if Maytag has fixed this problem with the new latches?

Catriver is correct as far as he goes, but the real problem is getting the plastic handle onto the switch assembly. There must be a 'trick' to this but it eluded me and a trained repair technician so we used pliers and brute force. It should be noted that the plastic handle has been modified since the original. There are now metal reinforcements in the hinge pivot, which was the bit that broke off on the original without the metal strengthening. Suggestions for the correct assembly of the handle and switch will still be welcome.

You are going to have to remove the inside panel and get it from the inside. There should be 11 tork screws on the inner panel. Before lifting it away, disconnect the wires from the vent and dispensor wax motor. The latch assy will can now be removed from the inside. If you take your time and observe, it should be a piece of cake...Catriver..post back.

    Ales, It's been a while since I replaced one, however it appears that the handle would insert through the front and secured to the latch assy. by the mounting screws that hold the latch down. I don't have one in front of me but I'll take a look at the shop on Monday. If I run across one I'll give you more detailed instructions. In the meantime maybe one of the other good techs on this site may have the trick to this. Catriver

How do I replace handle/plastic cover on Fisher and Paykel soft touch 913t dishwasher?


Not sure if you have tried to refer to the parts manual itself which shows how the parts are assembled together. In particular page 8 which shows the handle assembly part 18. I am assuming this is what you are replacing. Or is it just part 21 which is the plastic latch recess cover.

How do I install a new Handle/Latch assembly on the door of a Whirlpool LHW0050PQ 4 Wash Machine...have to remove present one as broken---pull handle door catch does not release---have to release putting a...


I had to replace part No 8182408 - the washing machine door handle. There is a plastic bar in the middle of the assembly that broke because the door was opened too hard.

There are two springs, the latch, and the plastic piece that brings it all together. The smaller spring is the key, call it the L spring. It is shaped like an L and goes around the ends of the latch. The other spring is the larger and straight and goes around the tops of the plastic piece. The straight spring goes in with the crossbar facing on the outside of the washer. The latch with the L spring fits in between the plastic crossbar with the U shaped end pressing against the latches inside bar. The antenna of the L spring needs to wrap around the plastic bar and fit inside the straight spring bar. This applies pressure on the latch to stay closed. When the handle is pulled, it releases the pressure and allows you to open the door. The Metal bar is used to hold all the pieces together and once you have the alignment right, put it back into the door with the straight spring antenna tucked in the spots on the door, as well as the metal bar ends. Screw in the two spots that holds the assembly in place and you will be set. The door should open and shut easily.

Have a maytag dishwasher MDB6600 AWQ -latch/handle broke - bought replacement but not sure how to install - can you help


Just did this myself .Need the right star screw driver to remove 11 screws holding the door inner liner
then you can access the handle latch assembly. You pull off the 2 wire connectors to the switchs that are part of the assembly. Slip connectors onto new assembly.Position the handle part thru the door and re attach inner liner. 2 of the inner liner top screws also hold the assembly in place.Unfortunely , this didn't solve my problem of the dishwasher not turning on.

How do you safely replace the handle on this MDB7600A dishwasher


Easy job. You'll need a new "latch assembly". I found one at appliancepartspros.com for $18+ and $7 shipping. Part #W10130695. More $ elsewhere. Procedure: Remove torx head screws on 3 sides of the door, then pull the interior part of the door away from the exterior a few inches at the top of the door. The old latch assembly (and the broken handle, now separate) can now be accessed easily. There are two wire connectors press fit to the latch assembly switches. Use a screwdriver if necessary to pry them off the old assembly, which is probably corroded somewhat. Do this one at a time and replace on the corresponding terminals of the new latch assembly so the wires don't get switched (or else mark them before removal.) Reposition the latch assembly, push the two halves of the door back together and replace the screws. Done. I'll note that the latch is positioned but not secured by two pairs of thin plastic "fingers" molded into the back of the control panel. Three of four fingers had sheared off. I didn't feel like spending $70 to $130 for a new control panel so decided to try doing without. The latch is secured by the two center screws at the top of the door, so as long as those are tight it should be fine.

Broken maytag door latch assembly Maytag quiet series 300: the latch is not working, door is closed and cannot open, seems something snapped inside, how can I open the door ? and change the broken part ?


To open this latch, the handle works as a lever to push inward when you push up on the handle. If your handle if broken, it has probably ceased to work as a lever (the pivot pins have likely broken). You want to push in on the handle to open the latch, ideally toward the bottom of the handle opening. Once you get the latch open, you'll likely want to order a replacement (here is one source : http://www.repairclinic.com/PartDetail/Door-Latch/W10130694/1266678 ). Remember to turn off the power to the dishwasher, and you'll need a star head driver to remove the screws from the inside of the door to access and replace the latch.
