removed screws from inside plate of dishwasher door. The assembly was hanging free (not clipped to the door). the old handle was easily removed, and the new one was clipped onto the assembly and put back into place. The screws were then replaced.

We had been noticing that the door was becoming increasingly more difficult to open. Extra force was needed. (that's probably why the handle broke in the first place). After the repair, the door opens much more easily.

This was probably the easiest repair we had ever had to do. Not only does the door operate much more smoothly, but we saved the cost of a service call.
