I opened the door of the dishwasher and removed the phillips head screws that attach the inner liner to the dishwasher door. Two of the screws that attach the inner panel to the door also serve to hold the door latch in place. So. once the inner door panel was loose the door latch simply needed to have the four wires disconnected from the two microswitches that are a part of the latch assembly. That allowed the old latch assembly to be removed. All that remained was to install the wires to the switch terminals on the new latch assembly (which included new microswitches), set the latch in place, and install the screws that hold the latch and inner door inner in place..
