Turned off dishwasher breaker in electrical panel. Removed all 11 torx head screws around inside perimeter of the dishwasher door. Lifted inside panel so that I had access to latch assembly. Removed electrical leads from switches of broken assembly and attached them to new assembly. Reversed the steps to reassemble door. Tested latch to make sure it worked. Re-energized breaker in electrical panel. **It is important to note that the dishwasher should be de-energized during this fix. Whether you do so by unplugging the power cord or turning off the breaker, remove power and save yourself from getting lit up.
