As others here had described the repair as Really Easy, I decided to try it. Using a torx screwdriver, I removed the screws holding the inside door panel to get to the wax motor. The wax motor was held in place with a plastic clip and attached to the electrical connection with clips. Removal was a snap, as was putting in the new one. Noted that the rinse agent dispenser uses another identical wax motor. I had purchased the spring just in case but did not need to replace it. Reattached the panel and everything works just great !
