removed 6 screws on inside of door, pulled front part of door away from door ... the latch assembly was exposed. I removed the four wire connectors one by one and placed them on the corresponding connector on the new latch. I had to use small pliers to remove two of the four connectors. I just pulled them off with the pliers. I removed the latch from the door. It was attached with two hexagonal screws ... so I needed a special bit on the screw driver. I attached new latch with the wires attached. Then reattached the inside of the top door, It took ten minutes ! I am delighted ... I was thinking of buying a new dishwasher but this did the trick.
