Removed the torn screws that held the inner and outer door together, removed the wire connections from the micro switches one at a time and installed onnew switch one at a time so they went into the right place. There was some difficulty separating the connectors and switches because of the heated contacts but it didn't take too long to get apart. After all the connections were made and the switch reinstalled, the door was reassembled the door was closed and the dishwasher came on and worked like the day it was installed. Glad I bought the part instead of a new machine.
