THE HANDLE BROKE OFF. DO YOU REMOVE THE WHOLE INSIDE PANEL TO REPLACE?
MODEL MDB-5600 AWQ
To replace the handle you will have to remove the screws from the inner door panel and lift the panel up. There will be a screw holding the handle and latch assembly in place.
Is it possible to get a new door latch for amana dishwasher model # add12004wb?
Answer Jen, I believe your model should read ADB1200AWB (B instead of the second D and A instead of the 4). Please double check your appliance model number to ensure the model found is correct and matches what is on your model tag plate. The replacement door latch assy is part number W10130698. Thanks!
The handle on the dishwasher is very loose but still opens with some difficulty. The washer still operates flawlessly. I believe I need a new door latch assembly. Is part #AP4263144 what I need? Any other suggestions for troubleshooting would be appreciated. Thanks.
Answer Hi. Open the inner door panel. Look inside the back side of the control panel part # 6-919823 to see if the door latch female pivot points are broken and laying on the inside of the outer door bottom. This will make the door latch part # W10130696 loose. This is mainly caused by initial installation of the unit not being proper. Remove the lower kick plate and see if all 4-legs are snug against the floor. Correct this issue by following the installing instructions provided with the unit. So the latch and body is level and do not bind and break again. Thank You.
