Unscrewed the dozen or so hex bolts around the inside of the dishwasher door. Popped out the handle & latch assembly. Disconnected the safety switch leads. Then connected in the new latch and closed it all up. Longest time was finding the right size hex wrench to diassemble the door. The new latch & handle are much better constructed. Critical pivot is now metal reinforced instead of just plastic. This should have been a recall item, there is no way the old handle would last too long.
