First make sure to pull the circuit breaker for the dishwasher or unplug dishwasher. Open dishwasher door and remove the 11 star mount screws that mount the inner door panel. Partially separate the inner door panel from outer door, being careful not to stretch the wire harness. Remove the black electronic box mounted to the outer door using a 1/4 socket. Remove cover on black box and unplug the ribbon strip connector from the control panel. The connector unplugs by pushing up on the slide lock. Remove the 4 screws that mount the control panel and remove the control panel. Installation is just the reverse. Mount the new control panel and secure with 4 screws. Connect the ribbon strip to the black electronic box and slide down the lock slide lever. Remount the black box and cover. Seat the inner door to the outer door aligning all screw holes and install the 11 mount screws. Reset circuit breaker and job complete..
