In diagnosing the problem, I pretty much took the entire door apart before observing that the door switch actuator was broken off ... I went online, logged onto PartSelect, found the appropriate diagram (which on their site is quite easy to do) and ordered the part online.

It arrived far quicker than I would ever have imagined possible and I had it installed within 2 minutes of the time I opened the package.

MrsS is VERY happy now that her dishwasher is 'back on the road'

It was a very small and inexpensive part, but PartSelect treated us as well as if we'd spent hundreds of dollars ... we could not be happier.
