I have a Jenn-Air Dishwasher Model # JDB1080AWS with two problems

This answer was rated:

I have a Jenn-Air Dishwasher Model # XXXXX with two problems I'd like to try to fix myself. The first is after a complete cleaning our dishes don't appear to be rinsed well, and come out cloudy. The second is the door latch is not functioning properly, it closes but the release handle doesn't release and I have to pull hard to get it open. Thanks

Looking at the part right now. Is Midwayparts.net a reputable source for Jenn-Air parts, and do you know if this is OEM part or should I order it direct from Jenn-Air?
