After removing the inside panel, the two plug-ins are removed from the old handle. They were very tight, be careful to avoid damaging the plastic. Plug into the new handle, drop in place and replace the inside panel. A video I watched recommended pulling the two plug-ins from the panel. It is not necessary if you have someone hold it apart from the door. Very simple installation, about 10 minutes.

Was easy to repair. Removed all the screws around the inside door panel and the allowed me to disconnect the 4 wires one the switch and reconnect them to the new one. Replaced the panel and all the screws and I was done. Connected the power back to the washer and it worked nice.

Very easy do it yourself. Cut the power off to the dishwasher. Open the dishwasher door. Unscrew the corner screws of the door cover. (About nine screws. You may need to use a nut driver or allen wrench. You can elect to take off the entire cover or leave it on. I had enough room to leave it on. The latch assembly sits on top of the door mount. It comes right out. Use a screwdriver to remove the latch assembly from the two electrical connectors. Be gentle with these connectors. This is where you may need to remove the entire cover, just to give yourself more elbow room to work. Replace the old assembly with the new one. (Note: you have to replace the entire assembly even if just the door latch is broken.) Remount the assembly to the fixed mount, close and screw the cover to the door and your done. I ordered the part on Thursday, received it the next day and installed in less than thirty minutes. And the part was a perfect match.

I used a screwdriver with a torque bit and took off the inner door panel. Move the panel to the right side (as you face the dishwasher). Disconnect the two wire connnectors with a needle nose plier and discard the handle and connections. Install the new latch by making sure you attach the wires to the proper connectors. Make sure the connectors 'snap' in place. Place handle in proper slot and replace the inner door panel making sure that the two small flaps on the bottom of the inner door panel go inside the dishwasher (they cover the hinges). Tighten the screws and you are done!

I followed the instructions given, and also viewed a video of the repair on YouTube. The hardest part was to figure out which circuit was for the dishwasher! I can't believe I solved the problem for less than $40.00 and in time for Holiday entertaining! Thank you!

After waiting for FedEx to finally deliver the part which they held at their warehouse for almost a week. I just shut off the breaker to the dishwasher, safety first, took out the 11 strews holding the inner door panel in place. Then I lifted out the old assembly pulled off the connectors. Then I slid the connectors onto the new assembly put the assembly in place and installed the screws and the job was done. The only tricky part was that it took some effort to pull the connectors off the old part.

I turned off the electricity to the dishwaher. I then unscrewed the dishwasher inner door piece using the allen wrench to expose the part. The hardest thing about the repair was pulling the 2 switch assemblies out of the old latch piece, this took at least 5 minutes. I attached the switches to the new part, screwed the door back together and I was done. The handle now works great.
