Note: This question is for the older version of this part, but we thought you might still find it helpful

I ordered this dishwasher online. When it arrived it had a black plastic latch holding the door closed. To open it I have to manually squeeze it together through the hole in the casing. It seems like that would be impossible to do once I install it under a counter. Is this the real door latch or is it something just used for shipping??? There doesn't seem to be a movable or squeezable dirt handle anywhere so I am concerned!!!

ANSWER Hello Erika. Can you send us a picture of the latch so we can see what you are referring to? There is nothing from the manufacture that says there is something there that will need to be removed. Thank you.
