Remove inside door panel by removing the screws along the 2 sides and top. Remove the panel. The latch assembly is sandwiched under the panel and door, so it just needs to be lifted out to make unplugging the switch connectors easier. Assemble by plugging switch connectors on to the new unit and then place the latch assemble back on the door aligning the screw holes. Lay the inside panel on the door and start the all the screws half way to ensure proper alignment. Finish by tightening all the screws.

We could not open the door without "popping" it open. After ordering and receiving the door latch assembly, I removed the inside door panel, unplugged the wiring harness (shut off the electricity first), lifted the door latch assembly out (the handle came out in pieces), unplugged the switches on either side, then reversed the procees with the new part in place. One thing, be sure to order the door latch assembly with the handle. It's worth paying a few dollars more to have everything you need the first time.

The handle broke and was hard to open the door!

After getting out my manual from March, 2005, I found the part and they had it in stock. I watched the video and knew it would be a piece of cake. After ordering it, I went ahead and removed the inside of the door and the parts so all I had to do when the new one arrived was pop it in and put the door back together. In the meantime, I used the dishwasher a my drainer. I don't believe it took more than about 20 minutes total. I'm only 78 years young but I have a lot of mechanical ability! BTW - - regular mail and it was here in 3 days!

The discontinued the latch alone, so you must buy the entire micro-switch and latch assy. You take off the door screws with the Torx driver, prop the inner panel temporarily out of your way, fight the terminal connectors OFF the old micro-switches w/needlenose pliers, slid the new connections ON, lay the assy in it's "slot" (which IS well engineered) carefully replace the inner door panel, start a few screws, make sure it's aligned at EACH screw and tighten. TA-DAH. Did I mention turn the power OFF first?? It may bite ya.
