TURN OFF ELECTRICITY TO DISHWASHER FROM FUSE BOX! Remove top 6 screws from inside the door panel. Once you have access to latch, remove the two screws that hold it in place. When removing the four terminals use firm grip and remove them as gently as possible. Reposition terminals on the new leads paying close attention to their location. Black wires on one side and white wires on the other. "L" shaped leads are in front and rectangle leads are in the back. Use the two screws to reattach the new latch, replace the door panel and you are finished.
