It includes the handle.
The latch on my Maytag Quiet Series 300 dishwasher, model number MDB5601AWQ broke, and I'd like to replace it. Can you help me make sure that I order the right replacement assembly? Any tips on replacing it?
Thanks Jake! Part ordered, and should be waiting for me when I get home tonight. Is there any trick to pulling the wire harnesses off of the the old assembly, or do I just need to pull hard enough?
Well, it is broken again. I considered replacing the dishwasher, but I just replaced the basket and it is running fine, so buy another handle. At least they are fairly cheap to replace vs. replacing the whole machine.My MDB6600AWW door handle is about to break again. Last time was July 2008. This will be my 3rd or 4th time. I can't believe that the replacement part has not been re-enforced in some way to prevent this from happening. I better get the new one ordered now.
Yes, but first remove the lower rack and lower kick panel and make sure all 4 legs are sung on the floor and using a torpedo level that the unit is level front to back and side to side so it does not break again.Is there some way on the hinges for the door to help align the latch?
Yes, after you've done the leveling with all 4 legs sung on the floor.Can you use the top anchors to skew the alignment?
