Strike plate 858309 is loose and won't latch. Two (2) questions, how do I remove the 858309 part.. it seems to "catch underneath," like some type of tab I can't reach prevents removal, and (2) does a replacement just slide back in? It looks like 2 slots should hold it in place?
Answer JR, Insert an Allen wrench between the countertop and the top of the console in the vicinity of the door latch. Turn the Allen wrench down and press down on the latch strike retainer brackets to release them from the support collar. The latch strike retainer brackets are
snapped into the metal ridge on which the cabinet seal is installed. Open the door. The unsnapped latch strike will remain attached to the door catch and will be pulled out of the mounting slots in the support collar. Remove the latch strike from the door latch assembly.
Reinsert the latch strike into the slots in the support collar and snap it into place.

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.
