Before starting the job, I looked at the information provided from others who had the same problem and had successfully installed the new part. The information provided was the reason I chose your company to purchase the part. THANK YOU!
1. Turned off power
2. Removed screws holding inside of door.
3. Disconnected and removed old part.
4. Removed dishwasher door handle and attached to new part.
5. Connected new part and positioned it in the handle insert. (Be sure the small bars holding it together are firmly in place.)
6. Reattached the door.
Here is the problem: I did not realize I also needed a new door handle as I assumed it would be attached to the new door latch assembly. My door handle is cracked and some of the plastic has broken away. I will now have to order the new handle and pay the cost of shipping that would have certainly been less if I had ordered it in the first place.
