Turned off power. Removed interior door panel of dishwasher by unscrewing screws (required allen wrench/hex key.) Instructions with replacement part indicated that I should use a needle-nosed plier to unplug the old latch and replug new one. Was unable to "unplug" the tines from the old latch. So, I removed the entire plug/socket unit on each side of the old latch, and placed them on new latch (saved new parts for future use if I can ever figure out how to remove prongs from old part.) Situated handle/latch in place and re-installed interior door.
