Removed screws to upper portion of door (control panel). Do not remove the lower large panel.
Released the clips holding in the slide braket which also has the handle attached.
Removed the door handle spring and unclipped the door handle from the posts and slid off.
Installed the new door handle by lining up the slots on the hinges with the posts and when you press down it will snap on. Attach the door handle spring to the hook on the handle and the hook on the slid bracket. Line up the pins on the slide bracket and press down untill it locks in place.
Line up the control panel to the screw holes and reinstall hte screws.
It took longer for me to right this than it did to repair the dishwasher.
As a note; be prepared to replace this part often depending on use as it is not a good design. Thankfully it is easy to do.
