Usually a problem with the springs attached to the door.
If you can provide a model number I could try and find the readjustment procedure. A small screw on the top of panel is usually involved, but need to be sure.

Door is hanging down to floor.

Change the damper on both the sides. Dampers are hydraulically controlled with a spring. It is similar to the shock absorbers in automobiles. Similar dampers can be observed in car rear wind screen door also. (dickey door). Replace it as a set.

Soap dispenser will not open during cycle

I have the same dishwasher, have for about 2 years. It took me about a month to figure this out... But, you cannot run it with the flatware rack hanging on the bottom dish rack, you have to move it to hang on the door and you cannot have anything in the compartment under the soap dispenser that is tall enough to block it from opening. Annoying design for sure!

Dishwasher door leaks

If the dishwasher is built-in check to make sure the door is closing all the way and not hanging up on the side cabinet near top of door. If the door is closing properly then inspect the door gasket for cracks, tears, areas that the seal needs seated back in slots, and any debris. If it is damaged in any way a new door gasket seal needs to be installed. should have the seal you need at a great price.
