The tine latch was easy simply remove the old one from the rack and carefully snap the new one in over the rack posts. As for the door panel, it was a fairly easy project. I removed the screws from the perimeter of the inside door area and lifed the interior panel. 3 conectors needed to be unplugged. (1 soap dispenser and 2 electronic panel)Next the white interior panel could be lifted out. The exterior panel I was replacing had four more screws at the hinges and a couple holding the electronic panel and top frame piece. after that I peeled back the insulation and pulled the front panel off the hinges. The new panel was a snug fit and this is where the rubber mallet came in handy. A few soft taps on either side moved the panel over the hinges and then it was a matter of reversing the earlier steps. Looks great and saved about $500.00 compared to replacing the unit to match my other new appliances.
