Used a battery operated screwdriver to remove white inner-door panel. Latch assembly unscrews as inner-door assembly unscrews. Two white wire gromets are pulled off of copper posts on the latch assembly. I needed to pry slightly with a screw driver. Attached the gromets onto the new assembly and then screwed inner panel back to door. Very simple assembly.

removed door panel, using torx wrench. I used an allen wrench configuration, has 90 degree bend in it, of the torx tool. In the future I would use a 'screw driver' configuration, i.e. straight shaft with handle on end. used screw driver to pry off old latch. reversed process to install new latch and handle mechanism. repair video provided by partselect was spot on! Partselect is my 'Go-To' from now on and am looking forward to contacting them for my next repair.

When ordering the parts there is a repair video of how to replace the door latch. Even though it was not necessary for this repair it is always nice to see someone else do the repair first so there are no unforseen items. This repair probably took longer to find the T20 than it did to do the repair.

Everything went well and was pretty easy. The only slightly tough area was getting the wire clips to release off the terminals. You for sure want to cut the power to the dishwasher before starting your repair

I removed the screws from inside the door and separated the inner and outer panels. The latch assembly was easy to access, however, the wires were almost impossible to removed from the switch. I ended up swapping out the old switches with the wires attached for the new ones. The unit seems to work just fine. Would like to know if anyone has found an easy way to removed the wires from the existing switches.

removed inner panel with torqs wrench and replace handle module all items were plug in. The only thing i would suggest is get the inner gasket since the soap tends to build up on the bottom. I cleaned it and applied vaseline to make a good seal, it is best to remove the door and clean it with a hose which is easy with the panel off.

I ordered the part at 12:30 p.m. and just took regular delivery in 3-5 days. The part arrived at 8:30 a.m. the next day and had it installed in less than 15 minutes. Very convenient and easy to do.
