Purchased screwdriver head to fit dishwasher door screws. With the new screw driver removed all the screws from the door. Removed the broken door latch assembly.
Checked the voltage at the door latch assembly switches and switched off the dishwasher at the fuse box.
Had to break the old switches on the broken door latch assembly to remove the wire clips one at a time. Reconnected the switches on the new replacement assembly being careful to place the wire connectors on the new assembly as they were removed from the broken assembly. Placed the switch on the inside the door panel and installed all the screws. The only problem was removing the wire connectors from the broken door latch assembly that took a little time.
