I turned the power off to the dishwasher. I removed the door panel 11 star drive screws. Removed the latch assy and using a small pair of channel locks removed the safety switch electrical fittings one at a time and installed them in the new latch assy. The Latch assy I purchased from PartSelect fit perfectly. I reassembled the door and tested and it worked like a charm. BTW upon examination of the new latch ssy it appears more heavy duty than the original one I replaced so it may be the last time I replace this part
