Door Latch was Broken and also plastic in center of control panel
Removed all screws from the perimeter of the inner door panel

Removed (2) connectors from inner door panel and set it aside. Note this was difficult, but was finally accomplished by using a pliers and pulling on the connector body.
Instructions should be included on how to remove these to prevent damage.

Removed circuit board plastic cover.
Unplugged Flex circuit conductor strip from circuit board.
Removed control panel and door latch asm from outer door panel.
Replaced parts in reverse order.

Problem: The flexible conductor strip attached to the control panel had a sticky red adhesive at the tip extending about 3 inches and was stuck onto the panel. Was this for shipping reasons?
Anyway, the sticky goo would not let the strip plug into the circuit board or make a reliable connection.

The Dishwasher worked for one day then would not operate the next day.
I had to disassemble the panels again and clean the glue off with Goo Gone. I was taking a chance because I didn't know if the Goo Gone would affect the carbon conductors on the strip.
Anyway, it now is working again.

Suggestion: You need to include instructions about attaching the flat conductor strip to the circuit board.
Also, It does not seem proper to put the glue over the connector end of the strip. Even though the glue was on the side of the strip opposite the actual carbon conductors it got all over everything just due to handling and had to be cleaned off.
I would suggest tape or something more easily removed or apply the glue away from the tip a couple of inches or more.

Removed the screws holding the door liner in place removed latch. Waited for half of the parts to get here, about 2 weeks. Parts got here except for Door latch and seal they were back ordered. One month after I ordered all parts finally arrive. Replace door latch assembly and replace door seal reinstall retaining screws....Done works good again. Parts were all the correct ones just took a long time to get here.

the latch handle broke, and then the control panel
1. Removed the screws holding the front panel on
2. Turned off the power (should have done this first!)
3. Disconnected the two wire set(s) to the latch handle. Had to use a screwdriver to pry them off, as they are very tight. Do not pull on the wires! Remember to mark which side is the white and which is the black.
4. Disconnected electrical circuit board ribbon cable that connects the control panel to the circuit board box (big black box with many wires running to it) by tugging on it (since it gets discarded along with the old control panel, you don't care if it gets damaged). Remember to mark which side of the cable goes in which side of the box (the pattern of wires varies by side - one side has thin wires going to thick, the other side is the reverse)
5. Removed screws holding control panel onto front of dishwasher - control panel and latch handle now slide off and were discarded.
6.a. This was the tricky part - reconnecting the circuit board ribbon cable to the circuit board box. You have to slide a thin, flexible ribbon cable into the mating connector in the black box. I found this impossible to do by just pushing on it, so I had to disassemble the circuit board box. To do this, remove all 4 wire sets - two of them just pull off, and two of them have small latches that you need to depress with a small flat screwdriver and pull simultaneously. Not really hard, just don't yank hard on the two sets with the latch or you might break them. Fortunately, I don't think you have to mark anything, since I think all the wires can only go back in the right way when you are done (but if in doubt, mark them!) Unscrew the screw on the black box and it opens up easily.
6b. Look at where the ribbon cable connects, and you'll note the connector has a two piece design - one part slides in and out by, oh, 1/8th of an inch. Pull the one part out and then insert the ribbon cable, and when you push the connector part back in, it draws the ribbon cable in nicely
7. Reassemble everything -
black circuit box
wire sets to latch handle
etc.

The circuit box ribbon cable is the key here - if it goes back in the wrong way, or not inserted far enough, your dishwasher won't work, and you'll get to do it all over again...
