Done this a couple of times.get replacement handle £5 from online or any good spares shop. Take out screws from door panels. top essembley comes off, a bit tricky. remove springs and replace. repeat in reverse. take about 1 hour.

Re: Broken door handle Indesit dishwasher DG 6100

I agree read "broken door catch" solution and be particularly careful in respect of the edges of the stailess steel panels - some of the edges are hidden and they are very sharp.

The plastic door handle appears to be broken. how do I tell if its just the 6 dollar plastic handle or if it's the entire assembly?

I am not exactly sure about your handle issue but if you are looking to replace the panel or change the look of your dishwasher then has all kinds of solutions. They have real stainless and faux stainless and lots of designs.

I have an Indesit DV62WHUK dishwasher and the last night the door made a banging sound when it was opened and now it won't close and will fall back under it's own weight. I suspect either a spring, spring...

There is a plastic unit behind the door handle which houses a spring under tension. This latches the door closed and makes the electrical connection to allow the machine to work properly. You need to buy a new unit (£15) which is a bit fiddly to reach but easy to fit (2 screws)

Door lach/handle plastic pins have broken off and two pronge ears attached to door that hold handle in place have also broken off. This is a Maytag Model MDB5600AWW dishwasher.

handle was redesigned with a metal rod through the attachment points to prevent breaking. the handle and latch comes as a complete assembly (you don't have to put it together).

The handle on my Maytag Quiet series 100

I had the same problem with my QS 100. I disconnected power first via the breaker then removed the 11 screws. I couldn't loosen the two electrical connections, but the door pulled far enough away to inspect the handle mechanism. The plastic handle fell out of whole handle assembly rather easily because two molded plastic pins protuding from either side had broken off and were loose inside. There was also a pair of molded plastic v-shaped forks right on the panel to hold the handle assembly and these were damaged but they just to seem to act as guides only (as the handle assembly is held in by two of the screws that were removed). Replacing the v-shaped forks would require a whole new door which I am NOT doing. It looks like I can a replacement handle in the same color with new pins (I am reading they may now be metal) for about ##15. Pretty easy to disassemble and inspect, only about 15 minutes.

Please check whether the plastic pins are broken.

I removed the inner door panel and found the handle broken. It has integrally molded plastic pins that provide a pivot for the handle to push against the release assembly. These were broken off. Also noticed that there were some small fingers molded on the back of the switch panel that were snapped off. I'm not sure what these are for and I can't see how they are needed for the latch operation. My hunch is that they aid in positioning the handle during factory assembly. I'm NOT going to buy a new switch panel to replace these!

I don't know why the handle broke but it did so in stages. I think one pin broke, and then everything else broke because of added misalignment and stress. The good news: a new handle only costs about $10 and I'll have it in a couple of days. Thanks

Dishwasher door will not open.tried running it another cycle and still nothing.It is a GE profile with the latch that you just push in. The latch/handle seems stiff.

The plastic latch release inside the door handle is broken. Most likely one of the pins holding it in place has broken.

First go to your local dishwasher supplier and look at a similar brand (GE Profile in my case) and see how the mechanism works. Next, get a thin pair of siccors, pull the dishwasher handle down and slid the siccors into the opening above the handel and push the tab holding the door closed up so it will release.

Once the door is open, remove the inside of the door to get to the latch. Remove the plastic latch release and order a new one.

try testing the door interlock, actually this is only a micro switch inside the door behind the plastic front panel, there could also be the possibility there is a broken wire behind the door skin just above the hinge part, take care when working on appliances do not force parts to remove them and always unplug at the mains hope i have helped, if so please rate me well
