I wathched the online video. It looked very easy. I read some of the other repair stories. So I ordered the part. I removed the eleven screws around the inside edge of the door. I pulled the latch assembly out a little, and checked it with the voltage tester. There was power. I turned off the breaker to the dishwasher, and re-checked that the power was off. I used a pair of needle nose pliers to pull the old assembly electrical connections loose. I plugged in the new one, put all the screws back in place and turned on the power. It works perfectly. Very easy, indeed.
