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 husband watched the video which was great it gave step by step instructions. It took my husband less than 30 minutes to change out the part. Now my dishwasher is back in perfect condition. We have ordered several parts from Parts Select for different appliances and have never been disappointed. Affordable prices, good deliver time and easy installation instructions.

Ordering and delivery went well. Following the video I had no problems. One word of caution. All I really needed was the handle and I almost bought the Assembly without a handle. Fortunately I read close enough to note not all assemblies come with the handle. So if you need a handle make sure you don't buy an assembly without it.
