I was impressed at how easy this repair was. The "latch" was actually the entire assembly which made the $24 easier to swallow. Turned off the circuit to the diswasher, removed the 8 or so Torx screws on the inside of the door. Removed the Black wires and the White wires from the metal terminals they pushed into, this was actually the hardest part and a little prying with a regular screwdriver helped. Then reversed procedures by pushing the White and Black wires onto the new terminals, snapped the terminals back onto the sides of the assembly (make note to self which side the white wires attach to and which side the black wires attach to BEFORE you remove the old ones) and then put the assembly back in place. Reattach the inner door panel with the 8 or so Torx screws. Turned power back on by flipping the circuit breaker and I was back in business.
