1 - Unscrew the back of the dishwasher with a hex-type driver. The latch assembly will be resting inside the outer door assembly. Make sure power is turned off to the washer - there are a couple of "hot" wires that will attach to the latch assembly.
2 - Unplug the wires from the old latch and plug into new latch assembly.
3 - Place the latch assembly back in place and re-attach the two door pieces together.
4 - Turn power back on at the breaker.
5 - Load dishwasher with the stuff that's been sitting in your sink.
6 - Gloat to spouse/significant other that you just saved $100 by fixing it yourself.
Just a quick note of thanks for shipping the replacement handle for my Maytag dishwasher. Service was superquick and I was able to save big bucks (no service call). I called on Saturday evening and the part was here on Tuesday. The young lady who helped me was awesome and a Pens fan to boot. I seldom send these types of emails but my experience was worth sharing.
