Circuit breaker to washer off. Removed 11 torx screws holding the inside of the inner door plate, two of which held the handle in place. Handle had a switch attached on either side which were connected by spade connectors to a wire bundle. I could not remove the connector spades so I removed the switches from the new handle and installed the old switches in their place. The fit was not perfect since the new switches were thinner than the old ones, but they slid on the mounting poles ok. The new handle had a screw hole partially broken off when I received it, but I took a chance that the inner cover would still hold it in place. Installed the inner cover (torx screws). Washer works perfectly.
