I have NO trouble closing and starting my dishwasher at present, but the machine is increasingly difficult to open, even though I push up the little plastic plate in the door opening mechanism all the way. I am concerned that one day soon my dishes will be stuck inside.
Is AP4113223 the part I need and is it difficult to install? Thank you for your help. Elsje
ANSWER Hello Elsje. Check and make sure the handle 99002085 is not broke. If it is good, you will need to replace the latch assembly 99002254. These are not hard to do. Just disconnect the power to the unit and remove the inner door panel and remove the cover from the door latch. Remove the old latch and reinstall in reverse order with the new latch. Hope this helps.
