Followed the instructions of the video and found it very helpful. The part was very easy to find and was delivered a lot sooner than I expected. I just removed the Torx screws as directed on the video, noting which way the wiring was plugged into the assembly and simply snapped it into place, plugged wires back in and reinstalled the screws. Works great. Didn't forget to kill the power first, thanks to the helpful video.

Simple as 1,2,3! TURN OFF THE POWER!!! Open dishwasher...Remove 9 screws inside and around the door that hold the door cover on...Pull out the latch/switch and using a flat-blade screw driver GENTLY pry the two wire harnesses off the old latches micro switches (there is one on each side of the latch.) Attach the wire harnesses to the new switch and reverse the process. This whole job should take even the most novice person 10 to 15 minutes to complete! FYI the handle was the only thing broken but they don't sell just the handle...so you gotta buy the whole handle/latch/switch combination.

I shut off the breaker to the washer, then unscrewed the eleven srews holding the inside door panel which also holds the handle in place.(I used a cordless screw driver with the proper bit) I then removed the entire handle assembly, and pryed off the electrical clips and replaced them to the new part, then set the new handle assembly in place. I then screwed the 11 door panel screws back on and it was done.... EASY, took less than ten minutes.

Took the screws off the inner panel to see what was wrong. looked carefully at part, and then looked it up on part select.com. In 3 days the part arrived. Again took the inner panel off, and used pliers to remove the wires from the old part. Reinstalled on new part. Replaced inner panel and screws, turned on the dishwasher, and it worked fine. It was especially helpful to see the different parts on the partselect web site.The whole repair took less than 15 minutes.

removed 11 star bit screws remember where which ones go as some are different. removed outer cover and removed 2 electrical plugs and just reversed the process everything went great. tho the plugs were a little tricky but just a little wiggle and they finally came loose this is one area you want to take your time as they look like they could break oh and don't forget to unplug the power or can get a little exciting.

Video was very helpful. I had no problem replacing the door latch. After one wash cycle, control board went dead. Lights come on, but start button doesn't star the dishwasher. Just decided to buy a new one.

We received the part very timely, I believe a couple of days after ordering. The part was chipped in the upper left side of the opposite the handle. However it did not interfere with installation. The repair video's helped and the task was very easy. Vickie

Repair was easy. Removed inside liner screws (8 I believe). The only hard part was removing the switch terminal connecting wires. This was a relatively new dishwasher but the switches were literally falling apart. I removed the old latch/switch assembly and put the new one in place. I reattached the wiring connections and put the screws back in. The wife was shocked. She said you just saved us $700! I got the celeb treatment after that! Great part and really great site.

removed the inside stainless cover, about 10 screws with torx heads, unplugged the latch assembly and plugged the new one to the electric circuit (make sure you unplug the dishwasher from the 110 volts plug first) and screwed the inside stainless cover back on.No repairman, no $100.00 bill++++The part was under $40.00 delivered in two days to the door. That simple.
