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.

Removed the inside panel on the door. Determined that the plastic hinges on the handle had broke. Found the new part on your site. "Unplugged" the old part and plugged in the new one. Replaced the panel and it worked like a charm.

Turn off power. Remove 11 screws, raise inter door panel, disconnect the 2 wire harnesses on each side of handle assembly. Compare existing part with replacement part. Install the 2 wire harnesses on each side of the new switch, position door switch in the door recess, close inter door panel, install 11 screws. Close door and check for mechanical operation of new handle. Turn on circuit breaker and test electrical functions. Run load in dishwasher to self assure operation.

The handle and lock had broken and the door to the dishwasher would no longer stay shut.

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.

Turn off the power, remove the screws holding the inner door liner, unplug the three electrical connections, remove the cap screws holding the handle and switch assembly to the control panel and install the new part. Reassembly was the reverse of this.

Repair was simple. I removed the screws holding the door liner in place and pulled-off the electrical connectors on the old handle. Then I connected the connectors to the new handle and put the screws back in.

Followed directions exactly as on the video; couldn't have been any easier. Removed screws around door, unfastened connectors (make sure power is off!); plugged in new assembly; reattached screws & it was ready to go. Must say that the new handle/latch assembly is better than the one that came with the dishwasher new. Had I known this part was available & so easily replaced, I would have put one on when I first got the dishwasher. When I first ordered, website said part was in stock & would be there in a few days. Then got an email saying something went wrong & part was now out of stock, but I still got it in about a week or so. I am a very satisfied customer.

Considered calling repairman vs purchasing new...decided to take a look removed roughly 10 screws..saw broken part did online search...did not know where to look for model number (owners manual did not have parts list) web site showed where to look...did not know part name typed door handle... part came up roughly $40 including shipping... arrived in ~3 business days unplugged 2 wires installed entire experience less than 1 hour. This is the way technology is suppossed to work.
