Note: This question is for the older version of this part, but we thought you might still find it helpful
The door on my dishwasher will not latch, the strike p,ate is loose. How can I refit the strike plate so the door will latch?
When you pull the unit out, there are 2 screws that hold the latch plate in place. You would want to make sure that they are tight.
Where it goes, and how to install?
Answer Hello Rodger. You will need to un-install the dishwasher and pull it out about 6". You can see that the strike 8580309 is mounted to the top rail of the dishwasher. You will release the locking tabs of the strike and install the new strike into the slots for the locking tabs.
