I removed the screws inside the door panel to access the door latch and then removed the latch, after disconnecting the electrical lines. I removed the new electrical switches that came with the new part, and reused the old ones just because it was easier, and I knew they were not the problem. I inserted the new latch assembly, replaced the screws and closed the door. The door would not latch until I used a screwdriver blade to trip the small latch inside the assembly, from the inside. Then the door latched properly and the dishwasher works just fine, again.
