    Video Transcript: How to Replace the Door Handle on a Dishwasher

    IMPORTANT: BEFORE REPLACING A PART IN ANY ELECTRICAL APPLIANCE, YOU MUST ENSURE THAT THE APPLIANCE IS FIRST UNPLUGGED FROM THE MAINS.

    If the handle on your dishwasher is loose, you'll need to tighten the screws that fix it on.

    To get to the screws, you'll need to dismantle the dishwasher door.

    Open the door fully and remove the screws from round the edge – remember to put them somewhere safe so you can replace them later. Be very careful to keep hold of the door as you unscrew to make sure it doesn't fall away.

    Carefully place the front of the door down, taking care of any sharp edges especially around the inside section of the door.

    You'll have to disconnect some of the wires to get easy access to the components, and we recommend you take a photo of the location of the wires so you know where to replace them later.

    One of the screws is just on the inside of the door, and the other one is behind the control box, so you'll need to remove it by carefully pulling it out from its clips.

    Make sure the two screws are fully tightened, and then replace the control box making sure it's clipped into place.

    The dishwasher handle should now fit properly.

    To fit the door back together, first plug the wires back in making sure they're replaced in the correct formation.

    Carefully push the two halves of the door back together and rest them back down, holding them together so the inner section doesn't pop back up.

    Replace the screws around the edges and screw them back on tightly.

    To prevent injury from exposed sharp edges wear work gloves
