I removed the 6 screws that held the front panel in place. Then I removed the front panel and disconnected the electrical wires to the Hot/Cold dry switch and the timer mechanism so I could set the front panel to the side. Then I removed the 2 screws (they have a special star-shaped head for which I had the driver in my bit set) that held the latch assembly in place. Next I removed the 4 electrical connectors (noting which ones went where) and threw the old latch assembly away. Then I connected the 4 electrical connectors to the new latch and screwed it into place. Lastly, I reconnected the electrical wires tot he front panel and screwed it back into place. The dishwasher door doesn't seem to be a snug as before when it is in the closed position, but the gasket seal seems to be good. I did not replace the gasket because the old one looked good, and I have since used the dishwasher 4-5 times and it hasn't leaked. I put the new gasket in my shop in case I ever need to use it in the future.
