Removed the screws inside the dishwasher door. Switch assembly was then available to change out. The problem arose when I tried to remove the leads to the switches - I could not get them loose. I didn't want to break either the switches or the connectors from the leads, so I swapped out the old switches on the new latch and everything worked out ok.

Much easier this time - yes it's the second repair. The last time I bought the handle only - not a good idea. Saving $ 15.00 cost me an hour. Buy the entire switch assembly.
