Removing the screws holding the door cover was no problem. I had difficulty removing the door cover, it did not slide off easily. It finally came loose. I removed the 6 bracket screws holding the dispenser, 3 on bottom, 3 on top, depressed tabs and soap dispenser came out easy. Snapped the new dispenser in place. When putting it back together I failed to remember how the top bracket fitted. It took me a while but finally got it. I wasted at least a half hour trying to figure it out. Putting the rest of it back together went well. The dishwasher dispenser is working fine, most importantly no leaks.
