First I bought a 'star' pattern driver; all I had in my tool box were allen keys. Next, I killed the dishwasher power at the breaker. Then I removed ten screws from around the door assembly, and gently pried apart the inner panel from the door. This exposed the latch assembly at the top of the door. I pulled the latch assembly off its snap mount and the broken latch handle fell out. I inserted the new part and snapped the assembly back in place. Then I jockeyed the inner panel back into position and replaced the eight screws.
