Since I had a home warranty on this appliance, I first called them and found out it would take about 10 days to get a serviceperson out, and I would be charged a 70 dollar service fee for the technician to do the work, which in ordering the part would take additional days. I then went online and googled an article which detailed the procedure. So I followed those instructions and got the broken door latch assembly off (removing the copper pins from the assembly was the hardest part of the removal of the old assembly). I then found PartSelect and located what I thought was the correct part. But I decided to check myself so I called PartSelect's 800 number and a very helpful operator worked with me in placing the order. The part came two days later, and an hour after arrival, the dishwasher was back in business.
