It has been a while since I replaced the handle so I may miss some steps but it was easy to do.

To change the Handle. Turn off the power. Open the front door and undo the torx screws from around the door. Lift up the panel. Remove the broken handle and lugs and insert the new handle.(Their may have been a couple of screws on the latching mechanism that had too be removed to replace the handle)

After replacing the handle the door would open and shut like a new one but the dishwasher still would not turn on. On further inspection I found a fractured joint on a relay on the control board . Resoldered it and it is working great.

The delivery of the part from Parts Select was great,I got the part next day in California.
