I unplugged the dishwasher under the sink. I opened the dishwasher up and took out the 12 screws holding the inside door facing on. I gently moved the door facing down towards the dishwasher to reveal the door locking mechanism at the top of the door. I unplugged the mechanism and plugged in the new one. I put the door back together the same way I had taken it apart. In all it took about 12 minutes. Works like a charm.

I just followed another persons directions that was in the system already. He had a great idea by taking the new switches out of the new latch and replacing them with the old ones from the bad latch. The old switches are still good and it made for a simple repair. This way you didn't have to disconnect the wire from the switches and now you have two new switches on hand. The old switch had a burnt spot on the connector.

Upper and lower racks had broken and rusting prongs.

Removed old racks -- easy. New lower rack slid right into proper position. Upper rack -- had to unclip the rotating water supplier from underside of old rack and position it on the underside of the new rack, carefully noting the removal process to facilitate re-placing the water supplier onto the new rack. No tools needed -- very easy. New upper rack slid right back into proper position.

knives had cut the plastic on the racks and rust encroached in the racks.

I used a screwdriver with a torque bit and took off the inner door panel. Move the panel to the right side (as you face the dishwasher). Disconnect the two wire connnectors with a needle nose plier and discard the handle and connections. Install the new latch by making sure you attach the wires to the proper connectors. Make sure the connectors 'snap' in place. Place handle in proper slot and replace the inner door panel making sure that the two small flaps on the bottom of the inner door panel go inside the dishwasher (they cover the hinges). Tighten the screws and you are done!

I followed the instructions given, and also viewed a video of the repair on YouTube. The hardest part was to figure out which circuit was for the dishwasher! I can't believe I solved the problem for less than $40.00 and in time for Holiday entertaining! Thank you!

After waiting for FedEx to finally deliver the part which they held at their warehouse for almost a week. I just shut off the breaker to the dishwasher, safety first, took out the 11 strews holding the inner door panel in place. Then I lifted out the old assembly pulled off the connectors. Then I slid the connectors onto the new assembly put the assembly in place and installed the screws and the job was done. The only tricky part was that it took some effort to pull the connectors off the old part.

I turned off the electricity to the dishwaher. I then unscrewed the dishwasher inner door piece using the allen wrench to expose the part. The hardest thing about the repair was pulling the 2 switch assemblies out of the old latch piece, this took at least 5 minutes. I attached the switches to the new part, screwed the door back together and I was done. The handle now works great.
