The latch handle broke, and then the control panel

1. Removed the screws holding the front panel on
2. Turned off the power (should have done this first!)
3. Disconnected the two wire set(s) to the latch handle. Had to use a screwdriver to pry them off, as they are very tight. Do not pull on the wires! Remember to mark which side is the white and which is the black.
4. Disconnected electrical circuit board ribbon cable that connects the control panel to the circuit board box (big black box with many wires running to it) by tugging on it (since it gets discarded along with the old control panel, you don't care if it gets damaged). Remember to mark which side of the cable goes in which side of the box (the pattern of wires varies by side - one side has thin wires going to thick, the other side is the reverse)
5. Removed screws holding control panel onto front of dishwasher - control panel and latch handle now slide off and were discarded.
6.a. This was the tricky part - reconnecting the circuit board ribbon cable to the circuit board box. You have to slide a thin, flexible ribbon cable into the mating connector in the black box. I found this impossible to do by just pushing on it, so I had to disassemble the circuit board box. To do this, remove all 4 wire sets - two of them just pull off, and two of them have small latches that you need to depress with a small flat screwdriver and pull simultaneously. Not really hard, just don't yank hard on the two sets with the latch or you might break them. Fortunately, I don't think you have to mark anything, since I think all the wires can only go back in the right way when you are done (but if in doubt, mark them!) Unscrew the screw on the black box and it opens up easily.
6b. Look at where the ribbon cable connects, and you'll note the connector has a two piece design - one part slides in and out by, oh, 1/8th of an inch. Pull the one part out and then insert the ribbon cable, and when you push the connector part back in, it draws the ribbon cable in nicely
7. Reassemble everything -
black circuit box
wire sets to latch handle
etc.

The circuit box ribbon cable is the key here - if it goes back in the wrong way, or not inserted far enough, your dishwasher won't work, and you'll get to do it all over again...

With that done i could open the cover without taking it off. then unplug the switches,and replace the new handle.

Latch handle broke

I removed eight screws and installed the new parts. The replacement factory parts are better then the originals and the latch handle should not break again. Had I called for service it would have cost $149 (not incuding parts) just for them to show up to look at it and tell me that they need to order these same parts. Plus, I would have had to wait an addtional two weeks for them to order the parts and come back to do the repair since most service companies do not carry parts with them. Their parts are marked up and would have cost 30% more for the same factory parts I order from you. The parts including shipping were $36.30 and I had the repair completed in three days, including standard shipping time. Quite a savings! and very easy to complete the repair.

Thank you!

Diswasher door would not latch properly. Plastic handle broken.

Received the entire latch/switch assembly rather than just the plastic latch handle. This was a pleasant surprise, especially for the price. The latch assembly was clearly a better designed and more robust assembly than the original.
Removed the inside panel of the door by removing the dozen or so TORX screws.
Pulled the inside panel away from the outside door panel (gently, cables attached) to gain access to the latch/switch assembly. A second set of hands was helpful for this and some following steps.
At that point the latch assembly was free mechanically from the door, but there were two wiring harnesses attached to the latch assembly via plug connectors to the two microswitches on the latch assembly. It looked like it was going to be easy to unplug the harness from the switches, but I could not do it. Never did figure out how to do it.
Removed the two microswitches (with harnesses attached) from the 'old' latch assembly by pulling back the plastic tab that holds each switch in place. At that point the rest of the latch assembly was completely free from the machine.
Removed the two microswitches from the 'new' latch assembly using the same method as above. This step requires care as the plastic parts and switches can be damaged.
Put in place the two 'old' microswitches with wiring harnesses attached on each side of the 'new' latch assembly. These snap in place. This requires care, as above, and the second set of hands to hold away the inside door panel.
Put the latch/switch assembly in place in the door, and put the inside door panel back in place.
Re-installed the TORX screws holding the inside door panel - and latch assembly - to the door.
I kept the 'new' microswitches because one day the 'old' switches may fail. If that happens and I want to replace the microswitches, I still don't know how I will remove the switches from the wiring harness. I guess I'll figure that out if the time comes.
Except for the difficulties disconnecting the microswitches from the harnesses, this was an easy and straightforward job. The latching of the door seems more positive, now, and the machine is working fine.

Latch handle broken, leaking water.

Removed 11 T20 Torx head screws. Removed and replaced latch. Removed and replaced door seal and foam insulation strip - no additional tools required. Super easy to repair and didn't leak a drop afterwards.
