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.

I read the reviews and procedures at PartSelect and was able to complete the task in 10 minutes. I unscrewed the hex screws, pulled off the door backing, pulled out the old handle assembly, disconnected the wires to the old handle assembly switches, put the new assembly in and connected the wires. Then I screwed the hex screws back on securing the backing to the door and it was good to go.

First I hit the breaker box cut the power to my dishwasher. Put my drill on the lowest rpm setting, because the internal case is plastic. This is important even though this is on the outside of the rubber gaskets. Then star T20 screws take them out there are two where the handle is to secure the handle into the door. Since all that was broken was the handle. on the new part I loosened up the switches and pulled them out of the broken piece, as well as the new part. Removed the broken pieces from the inside door. Then this is when it gets tricky putting the old switches into the new plastic handle, there is a button that has to be pushed in, it's super small you can use a small screwdriver or a bic pen, then they clip in. Replace the door screws very slowly you are going to have to pull the plastic housing towards the hole. Get them all in place before tightening to avoid cracks. Then power on and wash some dishes.

I viewed the video of the repair. I found removing all the connections inside the door wasn't necessary. Just remove the wires at the door handle assemble. Be sure to unplug it before touching any wires inside. The door handle wires are hot all the time. I placed the wires on the new handle assemble and placed the handle on the pivots and through the opening. I placed the inside cover backing onto the door and placed the screw's in the holes. I snugged the screws in reverse order as I removed them. 5 minute repair. The parts came quickly as well. I was down for 3 days. Thank you PartSelect.com .
