SOURCE: KitchenAid Dishwasher Door Pops open during cycle

The problem seems to be the loosening of the screws that hold the interior stainless steel skin to the door frame--not the latch.

With the door in the open position you should find a total of twelve screws (5 on each side and 2 on top at each side of the latch). The screws have a particular type of head which may require a trip to the hardware (its a $1,000 dishwasher take the time to get the right screwdriver). They are called TORX screws the size on my dishwasher was a T 15. These type of screw heads were designed to fit automated torque drivers at the factory that set the screws to the proper tension. So some care should be given when you retighten them. Turn until the screw is snug and there no movement of the inner door skin but don't over tighten. Giving it that extra 1/4 turn can be enough to strip the screw out and create a bigger problem.

Yes--you shouldn't have to be doing this to a KitchenAid appliance that cost this much--but I suspect that this will become a feature of periodic maintenance. The heating and cooling generates enough movement that overtime these screws work themselves out. My wife who was the once to make the right diagnosis noticed that the screws at the bottom were almost entirely out.

SOURCE: kithenaid dishwasher door pops open

Your door latch may just be getting weak and the temperature and air pressure differentiation when the cycle is complete (it's hot inside) may be popping the door. If you have had the door seal replaced recently that may also be a factor, they can take awhile to settle in.

SOURCE: My kitchenaid dishwasher won't stay shut. It pops

Check that there isn't something still in the very back of the rack (top or bottom) that's sticking out and keeping the rack from sliding all the way in. Similarly, if the problem goes away when you take the racks out, the problem is with the racks. Otherwise, it's the latch: either the eye (attached to the top of the machine) is bent/broken, or the hook (inside the top of the door) is broken. Good luck.

Soap dispenser won't stay closed


Only two reasons this may happen. One is the dispenser is just bad (most likely) or that the timer is somehow malfunctioning and sending power to the soap dispenser all the time (least likely) You will usually know if its the second because the dispenser will get really warm after the dishwasher had been on for a few minutes.

Soap dispenser door pops open


Try cleaning the compartment. If the latching is not OK, it could be a latch problem, or alignment, or total dispenser. Contact service provider for assistance.
