The wire harness connections on the door switches should just be electrical spade connectors that just slide off the switch contacts. There may be corrosion on the connectors or some connectors have tabs that must be released. If you are not able to remove the wires from the original switches, you can cut the wires at the connectors and buy new spade connectors at your local hardware or electrical supply store. This should help you connect the wiring to the new switches.

I have the same problem that newbie was having. if you go to the schematic that Barbara provided via hotlink, on the Control Panel page, I bought the door latch (part #5) and it came with the door switches (part 4). I could not get the door switches unhooked. While the replacement door switches were straight like a regular electrical plug (unpolarized), the original equipment had a little vibe in it like it was hooked in somehow. Where neither of them budged, it did not seem like corrosion on the connectors, but tabs that must be released. Yes. How do I get the tabs to release. That is the question. I unclipped the new door switches from the replacement part and put the old door switches onto the new replacement part, zipped it up, loaded the dishwasher (I knew that was brash) and went downstairs to turn on the power, came back up to hit the button and nothing happened. How do I get the tabs to release?

Hello Bobby. I provided an image below that shows how to remove the door latch assembly and the micro-switches on that door latch. Be sure that you shut off the circuit breaker to disconnect electrical power before accessing internal components. This may help you remove the tabs that you seem to be describing. Remove the microswitches from the door latch assembly so that you can get a better grip on the wires and the switch. You seem to be describing a catch on the female spade connector that is attached to the spade on the microswitches. With the switch removed from the latch assembly, you should be able to pull the female spade connector off. You may need to use a small flat tip screwdriver to release the catch. I hope that this information helps. If you need more assistance, reply with additional details (send us a digital picture of the catch if possible).

This is for those who have a white plastic block wiring harness connector attached to the door switch. The 2 prongs of the switch are embedded within this connector harness. The trick is to take the switch out of the handle / latch assembly. Use pliers and or flat blade to pry it out. After the switch is out of the handle/ latch assembly , you will have the switch and wiring of one side separately in your hand. This provides more maneuverability to pull out the harness. a. Using a Needle nose plier push the curved small side in and try to pull hard, if that does not work. b. Pull on the flat long side and yank that out ( for that is the straight blade and will come out) c. Now dismantle the switch (which should be thrown away) by using a flat blade screw driver. d. You will be left with the curved side inside the connected, again using a plier squeeze inward and pull out this prong. Note : - You may need 2 people to do that ONE to hold the pliers and squeeze the prong inward, leveraging the outer edge of the harness connector and OTHER to yank it out as it is being squeezed. This worked for me... hope this helps others having the same problem.
