Re: door wont latch shut
Is there a dl code? If not note the door striker position as the door closes. If you have to push it shut you need a door lock and if the striker is hitting below the latch too much a hinge will fix it. Finally look for a black pin above the striker for any damage as the latch will need to be replaced if broken too. Because with this and a door hanging low will not close the circuit and the ccu will believe the door is open also.

see this causes, and use the common sense. God bless you When your dishwasher door has a problem, check these:LatchSpringsHingesDoor sealLatchThe
latch on many dishwashers is adjustable. If your door is easy to close
but difficult to latch, adjust the latch to let the door close more
easily. If you can't see any way to adjust the latch, yours may be fixed
in a certain position. Check for other reasons for the latching
the latch has worn out in a way that makes it impossible for you to
close the door properly, you probably need to replace the latch. SpringsYour
dishwasher has two springs that counterbalance the weight of the door.
If either or both of these are broken, the door feels quite heavy and
you need to replace both springs.HingesThe
hinges are important to the door closing properly. If they're bent or
deformed, you probably need to replace them. Once bent, only rarely can
they be straightened well enough.Door sealIf
your dishwasher is new--or if you have just replaced a door seal--the
door may be difficult to latch for a week or two. If the tightness
persists, though, try adjusting the latch, if it's adjustable. If it's
not adjustable, there's probably nothing you can do immediately. But try
running the dishwasher on the highest heat cycle to help the seal
conform to the door. Otherwise, the seal should compress over time.
It sounds like the jaws are close. you need to pull on the door latch lever and hold it open use something round like a punch. not your finger. and open the jaws. if the door latch is not bad your door should close and latch normal.
Check the latch mechanism on the door. There is a piece of the latch that closes around the clasp on the door frame. sometimes this closes when the door is open and you can't shut the door. Take a screw driver and flip this latch piece open and close the door.
The door latch could be closed, in other words, the door thinks it shut into the striker. Take and hold the door handle open, like your trying to open the door, hold the handle out or up and at the same time open the latch, it may be stuck or closed...If that's not it, you may have to re-align the latch to the striker, the striker will come loose with a torx bit. Loosen it up, and move it around and re tighten, it's a trial and error deal, just keep trying different positions until if works right...
When the door was last Opened the latch must have caught on something and went to the Closed Position. Get a Pair of Pliers and on the Door Where the Latch is Pull it Back Down or Up whichever way that it goes. All makes are Different with This.
sounds like the door latch has triped while the door was open.the door is held closed when the latch grabs around the u shaped bracket you can see when door is open.make sure door is unlocked then with a screwdriver or even a pen stick it in the door latch and slide the latch over to reset it.
