Removed all torx screws from inside perimeter of the inner door cover after shutting off power and pulled out the broken door handle, latch assembly with switches. Used the flat screw driver to gently pry up under the two connector switch legs to loosen them. Pulled the connections off and plugged them into the new assembly. Inserted the assembly back into the door, positioned the inner door and fastened with the torx screws. Turned power on, dishwasher fixed as new. The video shown on the site is great for someone with little mechanical skills.

With the dishwasher door open and horizontal, remove 10 screws with torx driver that secure the inner door liner. Once that is done, gently lift the inner liner a few inches to expose the handle mechanism and lift the old handle mechanism to remove. There should be enough length in the connection cables to allow you to work out side the inner liner. Remove the two connections, one on either side, to the safety switches and discard the old handle mechanism. On the new mechanism, reconnect the connections to both safety switches and place the new mechanism in the opening of the door. Replace the inner liner, ensuring all holes line up and replace the 10 screws that secure it.

My son did it in about 15 minutes. I'm 78 with COPD and can't bend over to do those things anymore as it squeezes all the air out of my lungs. I think anyone in good health can do it quick. RLC in Texas.

Tried replacing the control panel as I had done before. Still did not work - then thought perhaps the switches on the handle - ordered the wrong handle piece - then went for the TCO(thermal cut off) internal fuse. Ordered that part and replaced it quickly - dishwasher works great!
