Question about Westinghouse Dishwashers
Don't try to bend anything! The latch mechanism in the door is probably broken. Open the door and remove the 11 torx screws holding the inner panel on. You will probably find broken plastic bits on the pathetically flimsy latch; mine failed after 4 years and I expect it to happen again.
If you do, see the link given in "I Have 3 problems with my dishwasher, my...",

Reassemble the door and latch with the screws.
