If you've got basic skills and basic hand tools,
You'll be fine.
Just remember, *** turn the POWER OFF*** to the dishwasher before you start.
Remove the inner door liner from the door asembly, carefully.
Disconnect the wires to the detergent cup, label the wires, so you can reattach them to the new switch.
Remove the bi metal switch assembly.
Soak the complete assembly in hot water and dry thoroughly.
You may want to test the door operation,before you install the new switch.
You may also want to put a couple of drops of oil (3in1,is decent)on the shaft and let it migrate down, into the housing.
Install the switch.
Reverse the procedure and test the unit for operation.
