Re: Loose door handle
Here is the link to the installation manual;
pages 14 and 9 of the manual (16 and 11 of the pdf) describe how to remove the toe panel, and the door facia panel. You should then be able to access where the handle is attached.
Hope this helps :)

Depends on the brand and type of handle. I'll give you a few general ideas. The first easy one is to look under both ends of the handle for small set screws. If you see them, a small allen wrench should tighten the set screws and the handle. The next type requires the removal of either the inner door panel or outer panel. Some dishwashers will have screws along the inner edge of the door panel. you remove the screws and either the inner panel will come loose or the outer panel will come off (depends on make and model) Once the door is apart you should be able to see the handle screws to tighten. Some doors also have a screw in both bottom corners facing upward that may need removed . Best I can do at this time.
Open the door and loosen the self threading screws around the sides of the inner door panel. Once this has been achieved lift the inner panel up so that you can access the door handle screws. Tighten these fasteners and reassemble the door panel.
You need to remove the inner door panel to access the screws that hold the door handle in place. I had to do this about a year ago - the screws are located around the outside edge of the door. Be careful; the inner parts are plastic, so take your time. It's a fairly easy repair.
Ok you need to use plastic or rubber washers against the glass so it doesn't break. To stop the handle comming loose again you need to put "Lock Tight" on the screw threads then tighten carefully only untill the handle isn't loose. You can get this from any good hardware store. cheers
Handle needs to be replaced part# 154537303 (blk). Un plug unit, take 4 screws from behind blk control panel out. Panel will fold down, remove two torx head screws from door latch, replace with new one and put it back together and your done.
THIS IS THE SOLUTION!
I was having the same problem with my Monogram dishwasher and oven.
Here's what to do.
You must fully remove the handle from the appliance.
Down the barrel of the standoff is a hex screw that, when tightened with an allen wrench, will draw the standoff tight to the handle again.
There is no need to remove the end caps.
