Latch handle broke, but lived with that one. Then touch panel began to fail until it would no longer work. I've repaired applinces before and knew repair was less expensive than replace a $450.00 dishwasher!

As many newer appliances are, component replacement can be very easy. Unplugged the unit since I was working directly with the main electrical control unit. Removed the torx screws to access the interior door. It was then simple replacement by removing set screws for the panel. Unplug the old panel and plug in and install the new one. Only problem I had was the Latch Handle was back ordered and took about a month to get, not's fault. Handle replacement took about 5 minutes when I got it.
Now dishwasher is as good as new and works perfectly!
