While trying to remove the built in dishwasher (every so slightly), the door at one of the bottom hinges(?) seemed to pop and one side of the door will not "pop" back into place. How to I reinstall the door so that it will close and seal properly?

Your question is: While trying to remove the built in dishwasher (every so slightly), the door at one of the bottom hinges(?) seemed to pop and one side of the door will not "pop" back into place. How to you reinstall the door so that it will close and seal properly?
You'll have to remove the d/w about 6 inches to gain access to the hinge. It should be just a mater of putting it back in place.

on certain models of dishwashers,there are two small hoses near to the hinges that allow water out of the dishwasher,if it is off level.try sdjusting the two legs at the front,so that the machine is tilting slightly backwards.please let me know if this solves the problem?
I would check for obstruction in the path of the door spring areas. If appropriate, remove the bottom access panel (typically 2 screws); open/close the door in attempt to observe the inside bottom left and right for the clicking sound.
If not already done so, also ensure your dish-washer is raised of the floor a little bit; leveled and properly secured to counter top with 2 screws.
You need to take the door off the hinges and remove the lower hinge plate from the bottom of the door. This is where I found my popping problem. The black bushing with the 3 bumps and dips on it is loose in the plate going into the door. I took black eletrical tape and rapped it around the part that goes into the plate to tighten the bushing up so it wouldn't turn anymore. ( This was a temp fix to see if the popping would go away) 3 Weeks later and still working. If the sound comes back I will put some double sided sticky back foam on it. Both doors were doing this on my fridge, and now its as quite as a mouse. I hope this fix works for you.
Common issue with this dishwasher. Easy fix though!! KitchenAid uses a nylon string that connects the hinges to the springs located along the bottom edges of the dishwasher. I had to pull mine out to perform this service. The nylon string seems to dry out and vibrates as the door opens and closes. All that needs to be done is put some Vaseline or other appropriate lubrication all over the nylon string. Especially where it passes through the roller and stationary guide. That will take care of any squeeking or grinding when opening or closing the door. Be careful as your door will now open just like it did when it was new. Now if I can only figure out how to keep my door from popping open during wash cycles!!!
