I just shut off power at the breaker box, then removed the 11 torx screws around the inside door liner. The hardest part was keeping the door open; the door springs get pretty aggressive after you remove the liner. The handle and latch assembly is basically held in place by two of the screws. I disconnected the two wire connectors, then reconnected the new assembly and set it in place. Put in about half the screws, turned on power and tested the operation. After confirming that the latch released and the machine functioned, I put in the rest of the screws and tightened them gently. Done. Working great now, but I suspect that plastic handle will break again before the machine does.
