    My handle on my fairly new Bosch D.W. was getting VERY loose too. I had my hubby get a star screwdriver set for $8 at HomeDepot and did what you said- took the door face off by removing all the screws. Tightened the handle and Voila! All set. Fix it info in Fix Ya = FREE , Star screwdriver set = $8,
    Super Mom fixing it by herself= PRICELESS ! :)
    To heck with Bosch. This has been our 2nd home repair... Thanks Guys!!!

Remove 4 screws(Torx 20) along both sides of inner door liner. Be sure to have a good grip on the outer door as it will fall off. I always start at the top of the door and work down. You may have 2 blocks fall off, they go on the hinge and fit on only 1 way with the slot on the hinge.

I have a loose door handle. what tools do I need to repair it and how?


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.

Model w10311121b no power


Hi Scott. It appears you have the same dishwasher as mine bought in 2010- it worked sporadically for several years. I bought one year warranty ($289) in Feb2014 . Over 2 months, service technicians replaced 3 parts (user control board, motor control board and water sensor) hoping that each would fix it. They told me to run hot water before starting a wash cycle. Dish washing cycle failures were still sporadic and it finally lost all power in May2014. Service techs would not come out so I confirmed house power supply with a multimeter and then took the door apart to access the latch. I determined the latch kill circuit was not assembled properly and it had carbon buildup which I scraped off.

If your warranty has ended and you attempt this, do not use a power screw driver with these Torx screws as you can easily strip the threads or damage the plastic user control housing by screwing in too far on the top screws. (especially if you forget to reinstall the internal handle which acts as a spacer).

To disassemble: Remove the top 4 screws and top side screws, loosen the middle and lower side screws as needed. Separate the washer door face wide enough to remove the user control board, let it hang by the cord. The handle will be loose in the way, remove it. The latch has a white plastic kill circuit which is held to the latch with tabs. Unplug the circuit and carefully remove it. The circuit comprises 2 flat metal sheets that are pushed together by the latch lever when the door is shut. These plates separate when the door is open to kill washer power. The latch lever should be under both circuit plates with the shorter plate on the bottom. (long plate, short plate, lever, white housing). Reassemble, remember to include the handle My dishwasher operates properly now.

Loose handle


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.

Dishwasher mdc4650aww door latch very hard to open, replacement part


If the door latch mechanism is the only problem, (Meaning: although the door may be hard to open, it otherwise still works) you may only need to replace the latch and handle. The part number is 99003347 for the latch, and W10130694 for the handle. You can view a complete illustrated parts list at any of the following websites:

searspartsdirect.com
pcappliancepartspros.com
appliancepartspros.com

Just enter the model number you provided and locate items 3 and 5 under the "Control Panel" heading. If the switch itself is damaged, the part number is 99002751 and is listed as item 4.

To replace the latch, all you have to do is follow these steps:

1. Turn off the main power to the dishwasher. Dangerous voltage is still present inside even with the unit turned off.

2. Open the door and loosen the screws on the inner door panel that hold the operator console in place. NOTE: You may have to loosen some of the lower panel screws as well to accommodate getting the control panel free.

3. With the screws removed, you should be able to remove the control panel and access the door latch and handle.

If you have any questions about this repair, please post back and let me know. I hope this helps you.

The handle is loose, how do I tighten it


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.

Loose door handle on bosch integra ltd. dishwasher


you can loosen the inside of the door with a small torx screwdriver and lift it up far enough to get to the screw that holds the handle from the inside. I did this with mine about 1 year ago.

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.

Loose door handle on ge profile dishwasher


Take the inside panel off.  The 2 screws near the latch only need to be loosened.  Once the handle is off, you will find an allen bolt inside the shaft of the handle support.  Tighten and you are done.

GE Monogram ZBD0710 Dishwasher


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.
