I actually printed someone's step by step. Opened the door and held it partially open against my knees while sitting on a chair. I took the screws off, then was able to lift the cover. I was able to remove the two wires from the switch while holding the cover partially open. I didn't need to remove the cover completely. Hardest part was taking the wires off the old switch. I was done in less then 30 mins.

Be careful when ordering. The Door Latch cost more than the Handle and Door Latch which is confusing. The return was easy.

First, remove the 12 Torx screws holding the the inside door panel. Second, unplug the old Handle and Door Latch. Third, plug in the new Handle and Door latch. Fourth, reposition the door panel and reinstall the 12 Torx screws. Done

I ordered the part from partselect on Saturday night and got it on Tuesday. All I needed was a screw driver. Take off all but the 2 lower screws holding the door panel on. You can then reach in and pull the latch assembly out. I used a flat screw driver to pry the wires away from the plug. After removing 1 side I plugged it into the new latch before unplugging the other side so I wouldn't get the wire on the wrong side. Then it was just a matter of slideing the new latch back in and screwing the door panel back on.

Door latch broken, no longer retracts

Using a nutdriver, removed about 10-11 screws around the inner door liner. Liner pops right off exposing the latch assembly. Pliers were used to gently pry off the two wire connectors to the door latch assembly which frees up the entire "old" door latch assembly. Attach the wire connectors in the same order to the new door latch assembly and place back in the door. Attach the liner and replace the screws. That's all it takes.

The door latch was broken and hard to operate

First I removed the screws holding the inner panel to the door ( the longest part of the repair) . I then removed the two wire leads and re-connected them to the new part. Then I held the panel closed against the new part and re installed the screws. Very, Very easy. Don't call a repairman if you have a bad latch.

the part we received has changed, and so it did not fit our dishwasher after all. i was able to remove one flapper from the part and put it on my old one, and now the water pressure is much better, and the dishes are actually getting cleaned.

Turned power off at the breaker. Opened the inside skin of the door by removing torx screws. Broken handle came right out. Released power supply clamps from old switch and removed wiring harness. Attached power cable to replacement switch. They were tricky to seat properly. Reset handle and closed door.

I ordered the black latch assembly part. Didn't know all the model numbers but I figured this must be the "planned product obsolescence" lynch pin so I ordered black.
Read the other descriptions and when right to it when the part arrived so quickly.
First I shut of the power at the fusebox. Used a torx bit in my drill to undo all the screws on the inside of the door. Very flimsy stuff. Propped the white inside part of the door up. Used my multimeter to verify that the power was off just by shoving it onto exposed contacts. Good.
Laying the new part next to the old I used a flat head screw driver to pry off one wire connector. I transfered that one connector to the new part. Then repeated for the second because I don't know if there was a positive and negative lead. Set the white inner door part back down. The torx screws that hold it on also hold the latch so I did those two first. Put all the screws around the top on firmly then went down the sides lining up the two pieces as I went down the sides. Torqued them all up to firm and reset the circuit breaker. Couldn't be easier.
Noticed that one guy had a bad control board. Heeded his warning by not prying open the door more than once. I washed my dishes by hand for three days but better safe than sorry.
Thanks for the help.

This problem is exactly what many others have had.
The flimsy part breaks with normal usage.
Fortunately, it was an easy fix and the replacement part was easy to identify and order.
I'm very impressed with the quick turnaround, it broke on Sunday, the part shipped Monday, and i installed it Tuesday.. Very Happy ! I only wish more online companies followed this fine example.
