Broken door handls

My Repair & Advice
It would have been much easier if there had been some instructions with the part. I replaced the door handle with the Dishwasher Door Latch Kit I received from ApplianceParts Pros.com and the replacement of the part was very easy. The hard part was getting the low front of the door back on. The lower part did not need to be removed but I did not know that. I removed all the screws around the inside of the door (eight Phillips head screws) to get to the door handle. Little did I know that only the top four screws needed to be removed. The lower front part of the door is a real pain to put on because gravity sucks. You have to hold up the lower outside part of the door while the door is open and move it to line up the screw holes while holding the screw in one hand and the screwdriver in the other. When I counted the number of hands I needed, I came up one short. I eventually got it on using magic. I shopped the internet for quite a while and AppliancePartsPros.com had without a doubt the best price and their shipping was very quick. All in all, the job wasn't hard at all. It just took a lot longer than it should have.
