First I turned of the electric to the dishwasher. I unscrewed the hex shaped screws along the inside of the door. I carefully pulled the inner panel away from the door. I then removed the connections to the inner workings connected to the handle. They were hard to remove and took pliers and a lot of force to pull them off. I replaced the piece with the new one. I easily attached the electrical connections to the new piece and reattached the inner panel of the door. It was quite easy, and I am definitely not mechanically inclined.
