The repair was relatively easy and I probably saved enough money as to not have to buy another dishwasher. The part alone was $42. A service call and installation would have made it not cost effective to fix.
The control panel is loosened with phillips head screws on the inside of the door. The latch is attached with the "star" shaped screws. I did not own one of these drivers so I had to leave the house to get one. I used pliers to disconncet the clips from their connections as to not pull the wires from the clips.
