Easy fix, the only problem was the plug wires that were attached to microswitches on either side of the latch. The plugs that were connected to them did not come off easy and required two pliers with one of them on the microswitch and the other holding the plug connector and gently but firmly pulling them off. Once they were off, they plug connectors attached easily to new microswitches that came with the new latch.

The push buttons on the door will not activate.

I called a local repair person and he said the cost to fix this would be over $100, he said the part would cost $65. I went online found the part and ordered it. In two days I had the part in my hands! I then watched a video on how to install the handle. The video said it would take about 30 minutes to complete the installation and they were right, in fact it took less than a half hour. I saved myself over $100, didn't have to wait for installation, and got the satisfaction of fixing the dishwasher myself.

The door latch is plastic and it broke free of its mounting.

Very easy. Remove the screws on the back and lift the back up. The handle assembly lifts right out. The only difficult part is removing the electrical connection. I used needle nose pliers to pry them off. Be careful about over tightening the screws in the plastic door.

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.
