The how-to video was very helpful. Word of caution. If you get the latch assembly WITH the door handle, disregard the first part of the video. I just unscrewed the 10 screws around the door, carefully unplugged the old assembly, plugged in the new one just as it came in, replaced the 10 screws and presto!, I was done. Easier to do than expected. Saved lots of money by doing it myself.

Turn off breaker to washer. remove 11 torques head screws from inside door. lift up inside door panel to pull out switch. remove 2 wire harness attached to each side of latch. note: the micro switches may break apart but that's okay not needed. attach wires to new handle and position back under panel . align panel and tighten screws. turn on power.

Following the instructions of another home repair, we took off the old part and attached the new one. Super easy! We figure it saved us at least $90 for a service call!

hardest part of the repair was to take out the screws that hols the door together. there are only 2 screws to the handle/lacth assembly and it was a breeze to change it out. the replacement part even came with new switches....wow it was a true bargain i thought.

I shut off the power to the dishwasher. I removed the screws from the panel using a electric drill with a # 25 torks bit. (Faster than a screw driver) The handle was loose and by using a flat head screw driver pried electrical connections off. Connected new handle and latch wiring and put it back in place. Put screws back in panel and was done in less than 30 minutes.Turned power back on and tested.. I viewed the video prior to installation and it was very helpful.

After watching the repair video and reading the experiences of other buyers, I felt confident I could make the repair myself. I ordered the needed part and followed the instructions from the video. I made sure the dishwasher was without power before I started. Once I got to the Latch Assembly, I was careful not to press too hard when separating the electrical lines from the assembly. Reassembling in reverse order was easy, and the whole process took less than 30 minutes.
