First, shut off power to the dishwasher. Remove the stainless outer panel from the door to expose the latching mechanism and control board. Remove the latch mechanism from the inner door panel (if plastic pin holders are still intact) and place off to side. No need to disconnect wires. Remove the control panel by taking out hex head screws and snapping out of retainers on old control panel. Again, no need to disconnect wires; let the board hang out of the way. Remove old control panel by removing hex head screws. Replace with new control panel. Snap control board back into place and secure with hex head screws. Be sure it is seated properly. In my case the door latch handle was also broken. Simply snap new one back into latch mechanism. Replace outer stainless door panel with torx screws and you are done.
