Question about Dishwashers
1. If you do not use Jet-dry liquid in detergent dispenser left side compartment, the drying result for dishes will be very poor.
2. You should check the heating element for continuity(conections for heating element under bottom panel of d/w).

yes somthing /pice of somthing has gotten into the works;usually its a chunk of glass or small pice of plastic.no eazy way to fix.youl have to drain and go from the top down.[removing wash impeller pump cover and keep going down each time taking parts off and looking for some small hard somthing.im afraid youl end up going all the way down to the chopper/food grinder.leave the screws in the parts you take off so wont get mixed up.take your time.ive done it hundreds off times i know you can pull it off ,once.you can do it.ps you can let it run like that thru some loads to see if will grind up or clean its self out.knowing what i know i would have no problem trying that on my dish washer.and have done it a few times.hope that helps God bless,tom

There are two possibilities here. First of all make sure the latch is adjusted to close the door tight. IF not, you can adjust it using a screw driver. next, you may have to replace the gasket as these do wear out.

There are springs on both sides of the door, likely one has snapped. You can get at the spring without removing the machine, sometimes, by pulling the bottom panels...
