Went to the hardware store and bought a T-20 torx tip and then unscrewed the plastic on the inside of the door, unplugged the dishwasher and replaced the latch assembly. This is an electrical part and it is essential to disconnect the power. I would never buy this dishwasher again. The latch is not something that should break.
