1. Shut off the power. (important!)
2. Removed 9 screws from the door panel. Left the bottom 2 in place. There is enough room to access the latch assembly.
3. Removed the broken assembly. The microswitch connections were easily removed by inserting the tip of a large scewdriver and carefully rotating it to ease the switch off the prongs.
4.Installed the new latch assembly and replaced all the 9 screws.
5. Closed the door and reapplied the power. Success!
6.Time taken was 10 minutes.

The instructions from others with a similar problem were invaluable.
