Couldn't justify having a repairman come to the house for a 5 year old appliance, so there was nothing to lose by trying to do this myself.
I removed about a dozen screws that held the inside door panel to the door, two of the screws held the handle assembly in place. Pulled the wires off of the old handle assembly with a pair of pliers, fastened the wire harnesses to the new assembley and reinstalled the door panel. Repair was simple.

The 2 harness connectors to the switches would not come off. I had to finally remove the 2 new switches from the new handle/latch assm. and plug in the old ones with the harness bables still attached to them.This worked fine and resolved the door problem. Unfortunately, I am now forced to use the old original switches while the new switches remain in the shipping box. If the old switches go out, I have no idea how to remove the connectors so I can attach them to the new switches.

Door would not open.

To open "stuck door", with right hand around upper right top edge of door and with left hand push directly inward on handle then pull out with right hand. It is a little tricky to do, but door will open. Turn off power to dishwasher. With the right size torx driver, remove the stainless steel screws around inside perimeter of door, left, right and top. Lift out inner door, which has a clip holding some wire in middle, so can;t lift all the way off. Lift it up enough to just "lift out" door handle/switch assembly. With power OFF, grab plug connectors and pull of old handle. Mine were very tight, and kind of rocked connector down and up while pulling and came right off. Plug wires into new unit, lay in place of unit removed just alighning to two pins. Lay inner door back in place, put screws back in, and you are done. VERY easy repair.

Opened the dorr, removed the inside panel = the most time consuming part - and then exchanged the handle assembly. Then replaced the panel. Snap!
The hardest part was determining the part that I needed - the right part that did not involve repairing the/an assembly. Luckily I got the right one and two un-needed parts.

Stuff happens.
