is on sales ticket. mdbtt60aww can t find anything else.

perfect. Now is the handle part you push up just like dangling ? loose ? if so you may have to break that off completely so you can get a screw driver into the slot and pry the latch assembly down to release it. it wont matter because the part comes all one piece. so you will be replacing the whole setup. heres a link to order it. its around $26.00 place a flat head screwdriver into the hole where the latch handle was and pry it down. it should open.
