The handle on my Maytag Quiet series 100

I have a problem with handle on my Maytag Quiet series 100 dishwasher. It seemed handle's spring seemed to be broken. When I pinch the handle, I don't feel a squeeze and spring back at all. But, I can still manage to open and close the dishwasher door. Is it ok for me to unscrew 11 screws and open the inside of door and investigate the handle part? Afterward, would I have a problem re-screwing back the panel. Ken U

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.

I just unscrewed the screws on my QS 100 dishwasher door. You will want to disconnect the power first. The 11 screws hold the plastic inner panel to the door sheetmetal. The plastic panel does have a couple electrical connections that stay connmected, but otherwise it lifts off plenty far enough to check the handle for damage.

To remove the power leads from the handle, push the two little locking tabs back about a 1mm
This will allow you to slide the whole electrical connector off the handle assembly

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.

Try changing the brand and type of detergent that you are using. Some seem to work better under hard water conditions. Hope this helps.

How do I replace the latch on my maytag quiet series 100 dishwasher?


Unfortunately, the Maytag quiet series models have plastic latch handles that are prone to crack after time.

You should be able to order a replacement handle through a distribtor.

If you can, unlatch/open the door. Using a star screwdriver, unscrew all the screws on the inside of the door frame.

Once all the screws are removed you should be able to separate the inside of the door from the latch assembly.

From there you'll need to squeeze the latch handle together and replace it in. I'll warn you that it feels like you have to squeeze the thing so hard you might break/crack it on your own. It is a hard/tight fit if I remember correctly.

One last thing you may want to do to is check the food grinder in the middle of the washer. Sometimes the cracked pieces of the latch can end up there stuck in the grinder causing it to be louder than it should.

Hope this helped.
