Question about Dishwashers
Check that something has not got wedged behind the top basket stopping it closing fully.If that is ok what can happen is that if there is something causing the door not closing fully ,when you try to close door to do a wash instead of the little hook actuator in the door switch fully engaging with the clasp on the body of unit,it closes down before it engages.It is like a finger hooking over say the top of your trousers.If you turn power off and get 2 small screwdrivers and carefully put them either side of the hook on door then try to bring it back to its open position.
Hope this helps.

One of the latches has broken off and
is not lifting the other latch clear of the housing. Remove from any
power source, remove the cover of the cabinet. Slacken off the clamp
mechanism and ease the clamp over the guide to allow the door to
open. When a new door lever is in place, the door may be easily
adjusted by slackening off the screws that clamp the door
catch/actuators in place whilst holding the door closed and then
tightening the screws. The rear of the door may be adjusted by
slackening the lower door hinge screws and adjusting as required.
I hope that helps.
If one of the door interlock switches
is not switching properly, that can cause the turntable/light to come
on even though the "Starts" button has not been depressed
due to the wiring of the switches.
Check for faulty door switches and/or contaminated actuators.
I hope that helps.
