Safety first: I turned off the electricity supply for the dishwasher. I removed ten torx scews holding the inside cover to the dishwasher door. This exposed the old latch assembly and the 2 connectors attached . I removed the connectors on either side of the assemmbly using a pair of plyers: be careful here because the Connectors snug. Patience and care will be rewarded. remove the old assemmbly, install the new , replace the connectors, replace the inside door cover and reattach the 10 Torx screws. Doorlatch works perfectly now. About 15 -20 min worth of effort.
