I searched online and found several problems of the handle breaking. I removed the inside panel and found indeed the handle was broke.

This requires you to disconnect the AC power first. Then I removed inside cover of door, disconnected the [2] electrical switch connectors on the old Latch Assembly reconnected electrical connectors onto new Latch Assembly placed new switch in door and replaced the door cover. Don't make the mistake of ordering the Assembly w/o Handle. For some reason this part is available w/o Handle [no price difference] but my handle could not be transfered to the new Door Latch Assembly that came w/o Handle.

Unplugged the dishwasher, then I removed all the screws in the door to split the outer and inner panel apart. Then I removed the two door handle wire connection points at the micro switches and removed the old door handle. Installation is just the reverse of this.

The repair for installing the switch would have been very simple except the mounting post on the door was broke off on one side and the mounting screw was too short. Had to cut a small piece of wood to make mounting post the same length as the good post and purchase a longer screw. Once I did this it was a simple to finish the job.

Using a drill driver I removed the 11 screws from the door liner. Lifted the liner, removed the switch assembly. Carefully pulled at the wire connections with pliers, the small pin locator broke which freed the switch and facilitated an easy removal of the wire connector. On the second switch/wire connection I used a small screwdriver to release the plastic latches and removed that switch with its wires. That allowed easy removal of the wires with the pliers. Inserted the wires in the new assembly, placed it in the door, aligning the screw holes, Using the drill driver, I replaced the eleven screws, being careful to use the longer screws across the top of the door liner. Done.
