First I located the electric breaker for the dishwasher and manually tripped it to the off position. Then I opened the dishwasher door and removed the eight "torx" screws around the inside door perimeter ( this allows access to the door latch assembly ). I then removed the wire connections that are on the left and right side of the door latch assembly (these are plug in connections but care must be taken to prevent breaking the pins that hold the microswitches in place). With the wires disconnected I discarded the old latch.
I then attached the two plug connectors on the new door assembly latch and carefully placed through the door opening and positioned the inside washer door to secure the door latch . I then replaced the eight torx screws and closed / opened the door to verify door latch worked properly. I then reset the electrical breaker and everything works fine now.
