Probably took us longer to find the right circuit breaker (few were labelled), than to do the actual repair. Threw the breaker and removed the screws holding the front panel of dishwasher. The handle fell off in our hands. Attached the new handle/latch after removing the wire leads one by one from the old one and inserting the new wire leads.
Had to insert the gasket twice. At first we had leftover lengths at both ends, but next time we pushed the gasket in without stretching, especially around the corners. It really does fit.
Simple repair and probably saved $100 over having a repairman come out.
