Replacing the handle went smoothly. Only problem was of my own making when I closed the door after the inside panel was loose. The door locked closed and I broke the latch trying to open the door. So I replaced the complete door latch assembly and the handle.

To do this repair remove the 8+- star screws holding the plastic inner liner and the metal door front. Remove the electrical connections on the old switch. They are well covered so no need to turn off electricity. I had to give them a good tug but there is no release catch. Plug in the new switch and set in place. Put in all the remaining screws. Works great!

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 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
