The only difficultpart was to figure out how to remove the stainless cover from the door. Seems it slides upwards after screws are removed. After that it is self explainatory and goes back together in 5 minutes.

Needed to replace detergent / rinse aid dispenser unit on the inside top of door.

1) Need to remove outer door cover / panel by removing just two (2) screws - bottom screws on lower side panel. Door panel will drop vertically 1" to remove it.

2) Mark and disconnect the four (4) wires connected to the dispenser unit. The connections were so tight, it required pliers and a screw driver to loosen them.

3) Dispenser unit has four (4) screws holding it in place. Unscrew them and remove unit through door interior - this requires a bit of angling to get it out.

4) Position new unit through interior. Screw in place.

5) Re-attach four (4) wires in same sequence as disconnected.

6) Re-attach outer door cover. This is the most difficult part and really requires two people. It consistents of two sets of guide channels that most be aligned for the door panel to be secured re-attached.. Once aligned, the door cover must be moved vertically about an 1" and the screws re-attached.
