Door latch broken, upper and lower racks rusted

I disconnected power to dishwasher. I removed six screws to gain access to door latch assembly. I removed two screws, which attached door latch to machine. I removed the 4 electrical attachments.
I then attached 4 electrical attachments to the new door latch. I attached new door latch to machine with two screws. I reattached cover with 6 screws.
I connected power back to the dishwasher and everything worked great.
Took aprrox. 15-30 mins to compete.
It only took three days to received shipment including day I made purchase.
I was very pleased with my purchase.

The handle was broken

I replaced the old handle by taking out the six screws that hold the control panel on, then removed the two hex screws that held the handle in place. I removed each wire (4 total) one by one simultaneously reconnecting them to the new handle. Then I replaced all screws as they were and called it a day. Pretty simple, little mechanical knowledge required.
