Take the screws out in the dishwasher door and open it up. Then move it over wire for wire from the old to the new.

Have a maytag dishwasher MDB6600 AWQ -latch/handle broke - bought replacement but not sure how to install - can you help


Just did this myself .Need the right star screw driver to remove 11 screws holding the door inner liner
then you can access the handle latch assembly. You pull off the 2 wire connectors to the switchs that are part of the assembly. Slip connectors onto new assembly.Position the handle part thru the door and re attach inner liner. 2 of the inner liner top screws also hold the assembly in place.Unfortunely , this didn't solve my problem of the dishwasher not turning on.

How do you safely replace the handle on this MDB7600A dishwasher


Easy job. You'll need a new "latch assembly". I found one at appliancepartspros.com for $18+ and $7 shipping. Part #W10130695. More $ elsewhere. Procedure: Remove torx head screws on 3 sides of the door, then pull the interior part of the door away from the exterior a few inches at the top of the door. The old latch assembly (and the broken handle, now separate) can now be accessed easily. There are two wire connectors press fit to the latch assembly switches. Use a screwdriver if necessary to pry them off the old assembly, which is probably corroded somewhat. Do this one at a time and replace on the corresponding terminals of the new latch assembly so the wires don't get switched (or else mark them before removal.) Reposition the latch assembly, push the two halves of the door back together and replace the screws. Done. I'll note that the latch is positioned but not secured by two pairs of thin plastic "fingers" molded into the back of the control panel. Three of four fingers had sheared off. I didn't feel like spending $70 to $130 for a new control panel so decided to try doing without. The latch is secured by the two center screws at the top of the door, so as long as those are tight it should be fine.

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

Here are some more sites you may also try for cost comparison:

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.

Dishwasher latch handle is stuck in closed position. The door will not open. How do we get it opened?


I had the same problem and with some pushing and pulling I got the door open again.
TURN OFF THE BREAKER....
Next take all the screws out of the door panel to access the door latch assembly. You will see the handle has plastic tabs that hold it in place which are broken. Order a new assembly and install it.
My problem was getting the wiring harness off of the switches they are clipped on very tightly so I just kept the old ones connected and put them on the new assembly.

Good luck

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.

Amana Dishwasher Mod. ADB1500AWQ, Door won't open.


HI,

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
