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 inside cover of door (several screws around outside edge of door), then the latch assembly itself. Getting the wires to release from the old latch was the most difficult--had to pry the wire clip loose from the inside with a small screw driver.
I saved a great deal by buying the part from PartSelect. I was able to purchase the entire handle/door latch assembly for just a few dollars more than the handle only at another site!

Removed door panel torx screws using an electric screwdriver (makes for fast removal). Removed old door latch assembly by pulling off 2 connectors. Got the part number from the back of the assembly and ordered it. Got the new assembly in 3 days. Put the assembly in exactly the same as in was taken out. Having the exact same part takes all the guesswork out of doing this fix. Put in and align all the screws, but do not tighten down until they are all in place. Saved at least 100 dollars.

Replacing the door handle latch assembly was VERY EASY!! Saved myself and my parents the extra cost of paying someone to do this repair. Who needs a repairman when you have the internet!?! I just followed the directions on the video and had no problem with it. Thanks for posting the video and delivering the part so quickly!

received the new latch assembly quickly from part select.com, when you remove the screws on inside of the door, the old latch needs to be disconected from the wire harness, then replaced with new assembly and screws.10 minute job and it could not have been any easier to complete.

Just like you describe in the online instructions. Disconnected the power supply, removed door screws (torex),romoved electrical connections from old switch, installed them on new switch, aligned door screw holes, and reassembled. As a long time do-it yourselfer, this is one of the best experiences that I have had over the years. The part arrive by ground Fedex the day after I ordered it.As the MAN said "I'll be back" for my other appliance parts when needed.
