It is possible that you have a problem with the door?s sensor, maybe it?s turned off or maybe some water fell on it. This is the reason why the micro controller interpret that the door is still open, and that?s why the washing procedure does not start. You have to find the manual and determine where is the location of the sensor and then see in what state it is (Turned off, wet, or damaged)

Make sure the dial that you turn to start the dishwasher is all the way to the beginning. Sometimes my little grandson comes by and plays with it, turning it. I load, add soap and the dispenser won't close. I check the outside dial, and sure enough, set it to the very beginning and the dispenser locks in place!

Try first unlocking the door latch with a small screwdriver, unplug power cord before working on the door lock.
If this does not work buy a replacement door lock, or get it replaced.
Use the number listed on the owner manual if you want to call a technician.
Enter model number on this website to find schematics and replacement parts.

I had the same problem and with some pushing and pulling I got the door open again.
TURN OFF THE BREAKER....
Next take all the screws out of the door panel to access the door latch assembly. You will see the handle has plastic tabs that hold it in place which are broken. Order a new assembly and install it.
My problem was getting the wiring harness off of the switches they are clipped on very tightly so I just kept the old ones connected and put them on the new assembly.
