removed 8 screws, took the back of the door off, unplugged three wire just so I would have more room to work, could have gotten by with just removing two. Two screws held the old handle in place, replaced the old handle with new handle, reattached the wires, put the back of the door in place, replaced the screws and viola! working handle again! Guys, if I could do it, anybody could. Saved myself a $100.00 service call plus middle man cost for the part. All in all, a good move.

I saw an online video that showed taking the inside door panel off, removing the wiring from the latch and then replacing the latch. It looked simple and was simple. Luckily, I had a set of so-called "security" bits, which were required to get the door panel off. I had no trouble replacing the latch assembly except the wires to the two switches were very tight. It looked like the factory had squirted some adhesive into the connectors after assembly. I was able to get them off after a brief struggle and had no problems putting them back on the new switches. The latch assembly fit perfectly, which surprised me. My only disappointment was the latch assembly fit a lot of brands, indicating that there is nothing special about Maytag anymore. Too bad. They used to have good products that were unique for their quality. One last comment: Be sure to turn off the circuit breaker feeding the dishwasher or disconnecting its plug. This is the only safe way to work on it.

Removed all screws on the inside of the door. You need the special bits with the 5-points on them (not sure of the technical name). Once you lift the inside of the door up, remove the two switch terminals from the latch assembly, plug in the new one, put screws back in, and done!

There's nothing to it, and all anyone needs to do is follow the instructions others have given. The job would have taken less than 15 minutes, but the handle and latch assembly doesn't screw into the door. It slipped down, and I tightened all the screws before I noticed, so I had to remove the door panel by taking out all the screws (11 as I recall) again. The new assembly works much better than the original! I used an electric screw driver with a hex bit.
