Unplug the machine from the AC power! Remove the screws around the inside perimeter of the door. On my dishwasher these reqire a torx bit. Using pliers carefully pull the wires off their terminals on the latch assembly. Note which ones go to the left and right of the latch assembly. Mine had a black mark that was to face outward on each wire connector. Position the latch assembly, and lay the panel back in position noting the seal at the bottom. Replace the screws (don't overtighten)and you're done!
