For Whirlpool Dishwasher Door Latch Assembly (Part Number: AP4264452)

Answer or Comment

The latch on the door seems to be getting harder to work. Looks like I have to replace the latch... I see 2 different ones listed... which do I need? Ap 4481280 or AP 4264452? Also anything I need to know before taking the door apart to get to it? I assume you start with the row of screws around the edge? Thanks Bill

ANSWER Bill, We'd recommend you use the W10130694 for ease of installation, you won't have to install the handle on the latch, it can be frustrating. Yes you will need to remove all the perimeter screws along the inside of the inner door liner, you'll probably need a "torx" tips tool to remove the screws, and separate the liner from the outer door panel. Make sure you turn power to the dishwasher OFF before you start any repairs.
