Opened door and removed 10 screws from internal door skin. Power was not off so I was careful not to come in contact with live wires. Unplugged to old door latch and plugged in new latch. The door skin was then put back in place and 10 screws were reinserted. The door was tested and would latch. A test load of dishes was inserted in the Dishwasher and the unit was tested. All worked well. Discarded the old latch.
