Question about Admiral 24 in. DDB1501AWW Free-Standing Dishwasher
The latch mechanism in the door of my dishwasher isn't working. When the door is closed and you press the handle the latch doesn't disengage. I need to know the replacement part number and removal/installation instructions.
It is an 2005 Admiral dishwasher:
Model Number - DDB1501AWW
Serial Number - 28716273GP
Don't try to bend anything! The latch mechanism in the door is probably broken. Open the door and remove the 11 torx screws holding the inner panel on. You will probably find broken plastic bits on the pathetically flimsy latch; mine failed after 4 years and I expect it to happen again.
If you do, see the link given in "I Have 3 problems with my dishwasher, my...",

Reassemble the door and latch with the screws.

Very quickly without seeing the machine , it might only need moving the latch forward a little bit there are screws that might have become loose over the years , or you can try bending the door latch a bit to make a better fit , this seems to me to be only a minor adjustment not a failure
