First, DISCONNECT ALL ELECTRICITY; the door handle has two hot wires connected to it. Next removed the male e-torx bolts from the dishwasher inside door panel, once the inside door panel was removed; access to the door handle is easily available. Remove the two door latch switches from the right and left of the door handle, there will be a Black and White wire set connected. If you have not yet disconnected electricity, you will probably get a nice shock at this point. Once the door handle switches are removed, you can easily replace the door handle. To complete this job, simply reverse the order of which the inside door panel was disassembled the inside door to complete this job.
