followed suggestions from others who posted here. I am a first-timer - thanks so much! 1) cut power to dishwasher at breaker box. 2) removed upper front panel by unscrewing 6 phillips head screws holding it on. 3) removed broken latch assembly by unscrewing the two star-screws. 4) pulled off the 4 wires after noting how they were attached. 5) put wires onto new latch assembly. 6) installed the new assembly with the 2 star-screws. 7) put panel back on. 8) turned power back on. 9) checked function and everything works great. If only all household repairs were this easy. Thanks for the service and for the repair stories, they gave me the confidence to try it myself and it turned out GREAT!
