First - I selected 2-3 day delivery after ordering the part late afternoon. The part arrived the next day. Very satisfied with the time it took and the ease in selecting the correct part. Once I got the dishwasher door open, I removed the 11 screws from the door panel. The top two screws also hold the latch asssembly in place, so I removed those last. Then I detached the wiring, which required a pair of plyers - they were very tight. After that, I was able to replace the new part, screw the panel back on, and load the dishwasher for my wife before she got off the phone with my mother-in-law. Brownie points were awarded, and it took about 15 minutes.
