Broken maytag dishwasher latch

Appliance: Maytag Undercounter Dishwasher MDB6701AWW0
My Repair & Advice
These particular Maytag dishwashers have weak poorly made latch handles; cheap plastic. This is our third latch in 5 years. This part is the way to go because the whole assembly is ready to replace the old one. Take the door cover screws off and the latch assembly is accessible. Unplug the two wire harness connectors and attach them to the new assembly in the same place. Install the latch assembly in position and install the door cover screws and you are good to go for a couple more years. Oh yeah, you will need a T-15 Torx driver for the doors screws.
