Pull the control knob straight out. Remove the screws along the top of the door, and the top two along the side near the top. The whole control panel will then fall away.

Unplug the old plug by squeezing the tabs and pulling.

Remove the two short screws that hold the control board to the plastic panel. After that, the board is still tightly held in place by a series of snaps around the perimeter. Most come free with a little work with a flathead screwdriver. The tough ones are underneath -- flip the whole plastic panel over to find an access for those.

Snap the new controller in place, install the two screws. Plug the wires back in (it is keyed and will only plug in the correct way). Put all the screws back in and you're ready to test.

The very first test I ran did not go well -- the dishwasher thought it was full of water when it wasn't. You may need to cancel the first cycle and start a fresh new cycle.
