This is the 4th time the latch broke on our dishwasher. We paid someone the first time, my husband fixed it the other two times, he is out of state so I had to do it this time. I took the screws out of the door and looked inside and saw it would probably be easy. Then when I got the part and put it in, it was beyond easy. The hardest part was to take the plugs off of each side, they were a little stuck and then putting them on the new handle was easy. The door had a place where the part rested and then you put the door back together. Those screws hold in place and it was done. Run down-screws out, plugs off old, plugs on new, set in place, door together, screws in, done. Works beautifully.
