How do you tighten loose door handle on ge monogram dishwasher?

Open the door. Remove the 12 screws inside the door around the perimeter. The front of the door will separate from the back- be careful to not let them spring apart. You may want to disconnect the black plastic control panel wire harnesses inside the door so you don't risk damaging any wires. Affixing the handle to the door is two 3/8 hex heads. Remove both screws. My handle felt loose because there is a Allen head screw inside the handle post that was loose. Needs to be tightened through the 3/8 hex thread hole with a small SAE Allen size. Reverse order for putting door back together.
