Unplugged the dishwasher. I used a "star" bit to remove screws on the inner door panel. Two of these screws also held the door latch assembly in place. The new latch assembly came with two microswitches but I had difficulty removing the wires from the old assembly so I unsnapped the old microswitches & put them in place of the new ones. The mounting holes in the new latch assembly lined up perfectly so there was no problem replacing the inner door panel.

Note: I noticed that the design of the new latch was improved over the one I removed. My old latch broke at the plastic pivot point. The new latch was mounted on a metal rod which is substantially stronger.
