I unscrewed the inner part of the door (not the bottom screws)from the front of the dishwasher. This allowed the latch assembly to be disconnected by the two wire leads. They were tough to get off, maybe due to age and mositure but they did break loose. The new part was than connected easily to the two wire leads. I put the handle assembly back into place and put the screws back in the door. And now it works like a champ again!
