Wanted to change beige dishwasher front to black.

First , I went outside and turned the breaker for the dishwasher off. Next,I removed the screws that held the bottom 2 pieces, that rest on the floo,r in place. Then removed the two beige metal pcs. . Next I replaced them with the 2 black pieces I had ordered and secured them with the 2 black screws I had received as part of my order. Then I removed the scews from the inside of the door of my KitchenAid Dishwasher. This released both the front bottom panel and the control panel. . I took the beige bottom door panel off and moved the insulation piece from the back of thebeige panel to the back of the black panel. Then I intalled the new black panel I ordered and resecured it with two screws until I had finished with the control panel switch out.
I had to unplug an electronic tape from the inside of the beige control panel and plug the same tape back into the black control panel. I also had to remove the beige handle that was on the inside of the control panel, attached to the door, and replace it with the new black one I'd received. I then installed the black control panel and reattached it with screws and finished replacing the rest of the screws I had removed from the inside of the door.
I tested the handle to make sure it opened the door and locked it like it should and then went outside and turned the breaker back on. Came in and turned on the dishwasher and did a load of dishes. It looks awesome, matches the rest of my black appliances and I am very proud to have done it myself. I also wanted to thank the customer service lady who was so great to work with on the phone. I would shop with you again.

Touch pad not activating

Problelm had been diagnosed by repairman but he said with labor and materials it wasn't worth fixing. Wasn't about to replace dishwasher since I'm planning on a total kitchen doover in 3-5 years.

Turned off power to dishwasher at box. Used star tip screwdriver bit to remove 6 screws on inside of control panel. Electrical ribbon disconnected from electric assembly and electric assembly popped out of control panel, door latch component then removed from its housing.
Electric adssembly and door latch components put back in proper place on new control panel and electric ribbon connected. Made sure door latch worked properly, turned power back on and ran a "light" load of just a few plates and glasses. Works fine now!!!
Only "difficulty" was balancing the control panel and the electronic components still wired to the dishwasher--didn't want to drop it, so either have a second set of hands or something to balance it on--I used the cabinet door of the cabinet next to the dishwasher.
