Latch handle broken


Hi and welcome to FixYa, I am Kelly.
Your parts are here:
http://www.appliancepartspros.com/partsearch/model.aspx?model_id=5177084 See item 3
This comes apart by removing the screws from the inside of the door. Control panel first. Then door skin if necessary. Make sure to check the condition of the door striker also. (part that latch locks on to.)
Thanks for choosing FixYa,
Kelly

Cannot open the dishwasher door. Maytag Quiet Ser...


This model has a problem where the handle must be depressed fully upwards to allow the latch to clear completely without straining the mechanism. The lip on which you pull open the door gives the operator a better handhold to force it open even when the mechanism is not fully depressed. Do this enough times, and the plastic tabs on the handle begin to fatigue and eventually break. The handle becomes lodged but can be forced down to eventually open the washer. By this time, a specific portion of the latch that depresses a micro-switch will most likely be broken, and the washer won't turn off if the door becomes ajar. Remove the torque screws along the inside perimeter of the door and you can spread the face panel open to access the latch unit for replacement.

I have a maytag quietseries 200 dishwasher. The door handle seems to be broken. Can this be fixed or does it have to be replaced and where would I get the part?


It can be fixed, and very likely by YOU.
Examine the handle and see if you can remove it- always a good exercise prior to the following:
Collect the model and serial number from the unit, and find an actual "appliance parts" business (not appliance repair, though that would be second choice) and ask what such a handle would cost.
I'd guess you can get it done for less than $30.

The handle on theMaytag Dishwasher Quiet Series 200 broke.


The handle is very easy to replace, you will have to get a new one , it comes as an assembly. To replace it open the door, and at the top inside you will see 5 screws, remove them, you will then be able to tilt the top plastic outer piece forward and expose the handle assembly, remove the 2 screws holding the assembly in and install new handle, reinstall front and screws you removed , your done !

Handle is broken.. how to replace?


This is not a difficult repair. If the model number you have this listed under is correct, all you should have to do is follow these steps:

1. Turn off the power breaker, or unplug the dishwasher.

2. Open the dishwasher door and locate the screws around the perimeter of the inner door panel. These are torx, size T-2, I believe. Remove the screws directly behind the control panel and only loosen the remaining ones. This will enable you to remove only the control panel without having to remove the entire front panel facing.

3. If only the handle is broken, all you have to do is remove the the screws holding the latch assembly in place and lift out of the way. The door handle should lift out from the rear and a new one can easily be inserted.

4. If the latch assembly is broken, I would recommend replacing the small switches that plug into the latch assembly as well. They typically break when attempting to unplug the wires from the terminals, because they are so fragile.

Appliancepartspros.com has all the parts you need, along with some excellent exploded view diagrams you can use for reference. The parts that I am talking about are items 3, 4, and 5 under the "Control Panel" heading.

Item 3 is the Door Handle
Item 4 is the Door Switch
Item 5 is the Latch Assembly

If you have questions about this repair, or if the model number is not correct, please post back with your complete model number so that I may be able to provide you with better assistance. I hope you find this information helpful.

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.

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.

Maytag Dishwasher Latch Sticks


John, I had the same problem and just disassembled by removing the dozen or so screws around the inside of the door, lifting the waterproof panel, and pulling up the latch assembly to see what was broken. In my case there were plastic pieces broken off of the latch handle and where the latch hinges on the back of the control panel-the latter piece is $50 to replace. unfortunately. Good news is the disassembly and replacement will be easy as a DYI. Sorry this is too late to help you, but maybe others will have the same problem. Bruce
