The repair was fairly simple. I unscrewed all of the screws holding the inside door panel from the outside door panel. I then removed the old (broken) door actuator with the new one, and then screwed everything back together. I used the exploded drawing of the dishwasher from the PartSelect website which helped considerably, and also don't forget to put the spring on the actuator before you install the new one. If your door actuator broke, then you should by the spring that attaches to it, because you have about a 1% chance of finding the new one.
