CustomerGary from Pittsburgh PA

Plastic latch handle was broken

This was VERY easy to do and saved me a service call and a pile of $$.
1. turned off power to dishwasher
2. removed the phillips screws holding the panel around the latch assembly
3.lifted the panel off
4. removed the two torx screws holding the latch assembly in place
5. disconnected the electrical connections from old assembly one at a time and connected each onto the new assembly to ensure wires went to the right places
6. put the new assembly in place, replaced the torx screws and tightened them
7. replaced the panel
