I have purchased part No. 99002838 Door Handle for my Maytag dishwasher. The posted instruction says to "align the tabs on the handle and snap into the slots on the latch. You may need to hold the latch open to assemble it with the handle", My question is how to hold the latch open. Thanks!
ANSWER Gene, the easiest/reccomended method : Once you have the power removed, remove the latch assembly from the door and push it onto the door strike assembly(in the center of the tub top opening),until it locks. align the pivot tabs on the handle with the slots on the latch. Push in and up on the handle, until the top inner tabs snap and lock into place. Pull down firmly on the latch handle to snap the lower pivot tabs into place. Then pull up on the handle, to unlock the latch, and remove the assembly from the door strike. install the latch and handle back in the door, and test the dishwasher for operation.
