Door handle came loose due to broken latch

It was a walk in the park. Unscrew the six screws in the back of the panel to reach the latch. Unscrew the two torx screws in the front of the latch and replace each of the cables, one by one, in the new latch in the same order. Put the screws back into place in reverse order and... voila, wthout a single shock !!

Latch broke and dishwasher could not be opened.

Removed the front cover by unscrewing the 8 screws. Removed the latch and attached new one. Re-attached front cover, and it works fine.
The gasket was in fine shape, and I question why I had to purchase the gasket in order to get the latch. Seems crazy and an unecessary expense on my part.

Latch to dishwasher door broke

Before starting I disconnected the dishwasher. First I removed the door cover which then exposed the interior part of the door. I then used a star bit on the screwdriver to remove old latch. I disconnected the four wires to the door making sure that I made a point of which wire was connected to what. I then inserted the new latch and reconnected the wiring. Finally, put on the door panel and screwed in the remaining screws. About 15 minutes total work time.

Latch handle assembly broke. Dishwasher would not close

Removed the screws on the inside of the door gaining access to the handle assembly. Lifted broken assembly out, inserted and secured the new handle assembly according to the directions.

The part was ordered and received the next day. The entire process was extremely easy. A repair person would have charged twice the amount of the part plus labor just to come out!!
