Open door of dishwasher and unscrew the 4 top side screws and the 2 middle top screws that hold the bolt-latch and handle. Carefully pull the top front control panel out enough to be able to get at the bolt-latch and handle assembly. Remove the old broken handle (which most likely is broken at the hinge points because it is cheap plastic). Replace with the new handle. The new handle will seem to be loose until the top middle screws hold the assembly are completely tightened. Then, tighten the four top side screws.
