How do I remove the old dishwasher door latch assembly?
Answer Hello Gil. You would remove the screws on the perimeter of the inner door and lift the door panel up. Once up there would possibly 1 screw holding in the latch assembly in place. Please make sure that the unit is powered off before doing this repair.
My dishwasher model # is MDBtt60awb3 and your reference chart shows that the latch assembly I need to replace is W10275768. And in the description there is no handle and i need the handle so the description then says for the black handle order part W10130698. Which i did. I have recieved part and installed. It will not completely latch and lock. What is the problem?
Answer Brian, There are a couple of other things to check, first make sure the dishwasher is installed and secured to the cabinet properly, the dishwasher is level in both directions, and the door is aligned to the tub opening. Check the door strike W10119337 and make sure it's not loose or out of alignment to the door liner and catch. Check the tub /door seal make sure it's properly seated in the channel around the opening, and check to make sure the door isn't bowed out at the top, and the hinges aren't damaged.
