The latch on the door seems to be getting harder to work. Looks like I have to replace the latch... I see 2 different ones listed... which do I need? Ap 4481280 or AP 4264452? Also anything I need to know before taking the door apart to get to it? I assume you start with the row of screws around the edge?
Answer Bill, We'd recommend you use the W10130694 for ease of installation, you won't have to install the handle on the latch, it can be frustrating. Yes you will need to remove all the perimeter screws along the inside of the inner door liner, you'll probably need a "torx" tips tool to remove the screws, and separate the liner from the outer door panel. Make sure you turn power to the dishwasher OFF before you start any repairs.
Handle broken, not certain what assembly to order.
Answer Jim, the dishwasher door latch assembly used on your model is part number W10130699. Thanks!

Answer Hello Tom. Lift upward on the door where the handle is located and jerk hard to open it. You can break something doing this, but it is the only way to open and replace the latch assembly W10130694.

Answer Pam, There are a few things to check, before you replace the latch and handlle. Make sure the dishwasher is level and secured to the cabinet properly. Check the door latch assembly 99001355 that's located in the top center of the tub, and it's adjustable, by loosening and sllding the assembly in or out, Based on the model number you supplied, if you do need the latch and handle, you will need to order: 99002254 and 99002084
Can the handle be purchased separately? The switch appears to still be working.
Answer Hello Gregg,
I'm sorry but the manufacturer has made this part W10130694 available only as an assembly.
Need to replace handle, is PN AP4264452/W10130694 the correct PN? Also can you supply replacement instructions? Thanks.
Answer Hello Bob! I was not able to locate your model MDC4650MWW, however, I located model MDC4650AWW (A instead of M). The handle part number W10130694 is the correct replacement and will fit this model. Please double check your model number before ordering to ensure the correct part is purchased. To install the handle you will need to remove the power to the unit, remove the screws holding the inner door panel in place and remove the inner panel. Remove the wiring going to the latch assembly. Install the part in reverse order. Hope this helps you, thanks!
