The part looked right, model numbers and location on the drawing matched up...but when it came it the electrical connections were not identical.

So I worked for 30-45 minutes to see if I could swap out the broken section on the old latch for the new part. Not a perfect fit...

So I cut the connections and rewired them...and nothing happened when I turned on the dishwasher.

After some trial and error I was able to get the dishwasher to run...but now it won't shut off when the door opens. Still trying to figure that out.
