Just want to make sure this is the latch for my maytag dishwasher.
Answer Hello Jean! Yes, part number W10275768 is the correct door latch for your dishwasher model MDBH970AWB. Thanks!
The "clean" light keeps blinking and wont let me start the dishwasher. Is the problem in the door latch electronics (relay) ? Please help too many kids to wash dishes. Thanks -Kevin-
Answer Hello Kevin. This is a heating error. You need to run the unit through diagnostics using the tech sheet inside the unit. Once the code is cleared, you will need to always get the water hot at the sink before starting the dishwasher.
I ordered the latch assembly with handle but don't know how to open the dishwasher door that is stuck closed. Any suggestions?
To open the door that is stuck in the closed position you will need to try to get ahold of the outer top corners of the door and lift up and give the door a good jerk. This should allow the door to release from the latch.
lights went out on the control panel and upon further review it looks as if the handle to open the unit has broke away from the control pane as well. First it was the lights then the handle and now it wont even run. Thoughts?
Answer Trevor, Chances are the door latch assembly W10130695 is OK. The failure with the LED's and the no running situation is most likely due to a failed keypad circuit(s) and if the latch has broken away from the standoffs in the control panel, the door switches aren't being activated and the dishwasher won't operate. You'd want to start by replacing the control panel first.
I have model mdb7601aws. What door latch do l need?
Answer Bob, the latch only is part number W10275768. If you would like the handle and latch assembly use part number W10130695. Thanks!
