Problelm had been diagnosed by repairman but he said with labor and materials it wasn't worth fixing. Wasn't about to replace dishwasher since I'm planning on a total kitchen doover in 3-5 years.

Turned off power to dishwasher at box. Used star tip screwdriver bit to remove 6 screws on inside of control panel. Electrical ribbon disconnected from electric assembly and electric assembly popped out of control panel, door latch component then removed from its housing.
Electric adssembly and door latch components put back in proper place on new control panel and electric ribbon connected. Made sure door latch worked properly, turned power back on and ran a "light" load of just a few plates and glasses. Works fine now!!!
Only "difficulty" was balancing the control panel and the electronic components still wired to the dishwasher--didn't want to drop it, so either have a second set of hands or something to balance it on--I used the cabinet door of the cabinet next to the dishwasher.
