Instead of just buying a handle, you can purchase the entire latch assembly. Check your dishwasher door to see if you require a torx screw driver. If you don't have one, consider buying a folding set so you will have numerous sizes for future repairs on other items. Turn off the breaker to the dishwasher. Use a torx screw driver or bits to remove the inner cover of the dish washer door. Then unplug the leads on either side of the assembly. Mark the outside of the plugs so you don't get them switched. Use a small flat screw diver and/or pliers to unplug the leads. Plug the leads into the new assembly, and reinstall the torx screws for the inner panel. Easy fix.

It was so easy I just removed 10 screws and removed 2 wire clips and pulled out the old handle and the replaced the new one. I have no idea how much I saved but I would guess close to a hundred bucks. Thanks PartSelect.

Turned off the power at circuit breaker. Used a 'star' fitting for screws on the inside of the door. Two short pieces of 1" x 2" about 8" long were need to keep the inside of the door piece seperated from the outside door. Wiring on the inside would not allow a full lift of the insides of the door. The plugs to the old unit were not easy to get off. Some effort and the help of a screw driver or pliers are needed. Putting back the two plugs is easy and the latch assembly can easily be put in place. The latch assembly is kept in place by the same screws that are used for the rest of the inner door when putting it back together. The procedure was easy. The shipment of the part needed was very fast! A great amount of money was saved! (Rose, my wife, ordered the part and I (tony)did the rest)

After turning off the circuit breaker, we opened the door and removed the door panel screws. From there it was very simple to swap the new part for the old one. It was not necessary to remove the dishwasher from under the counter or get under the kick panel or the sink. The PartSelect how-to video on the repair was very helpful.
