First kill power, remove all screws around inside door, bring door to upwright position and seperate inside from out but just enough to expose broken switch.compare new switch to broken one while still in place,if same, hold new handle in same position and attach wires in same order,now simply pop out old one and pop in new one,install screws and turn power back on,it took me longer to type this, good luck, Dave

Handle and Door Latch Assy Installation
Below is my experience installing the assembly

1) Remove rear cover of front door with Torx bits.
2) Remove latch assembly (it is held on by 2 of the screws holding the rear cover).
3) Remove left and right female wire sockets from assembly. (Ensure your power is OFF to dishwasher)BTW, this may take some effort as the socket assembly is tightly connected to the terminals.
4) Discard old assembly and connect both wire sockets to their respective terminals on the new latch assembly.
5) Place new assembly oriented on door screw-holes.
6) Place rear cover on door and replace all Torx screws.
7) Test latch and insure the system will function by going through one cycle.
8) Installation complete

The only problem I had was the miro switches, didn't have the tool to release the exsisting wires on the old switches so I had to reuse the old ones just by swithcing them to the new handle and every thing works great now. If anyone knows what tool that I need to get the wires off the old mirco switches let me know. craign84601@comcast.net
