We knew the latch was broken, but operational if you held it just right. I disconnected the water line and electricity to slide the dishwashwer out from the cabinet. Determined that hose had been chewed through by a mouse. Ordered the parts. when they arrived, changed the hose, slid the dishwasher back into place and tested. No leaks. then removed 6 screws to remove the face, 2 more screws and the wires to remove the broken latch, reversed the processed to replace and replaced the old seal. Loaded the dishwasher and it works like new.
