Turned off the power to the dishwasher. Removed approximately eight screws to remove the plastic inner door cover to access the door handle assembly. (two of the top screws held the door handle assembly in place) I removed two electrical plugs, removed the old door latch and replaced with the new one, plugged the two electrical plugs onto the new latch assembly, placed it into the top of the inside door, replaced the plastic inner door cover, replaced the screws, turned the power on, loaded the dishwasher and did a load of dishes. Super easy.
