That sounds more like a gasket problem then a lock problem. Check the rubber seal on the door for damage. Even a small imperfection in the seal can cause the door to leak even though the lock is engaged.
Or is it that the door just won't close at all? If that's the case, check the locking mechanism to see if there's anything jammed in there. If so, remove it and that may fix the problem.
Are you please able to confirm what exactly is happening when you mention "dishwasher just keeps going".
Is it in a wash cycle and throwing the water around through the wash arms or do you just hear a pump running with water sitting in the base. Most likely there is a leak into the base and the auto stop circuit is trying to empty the dishwasher by running the drain pump. I would suggest you check the base of dishwasher for leaks.
My older model had cheap plastic type rivets around the window. Of course they broke and water leaked out the window. I took the door apart and put in a new gasket the siliconed the heck out of it!
Put dishwasher on a counter or floor and put a nice thick phonebook under neath the opened door for support. Carefully replace window with gasket and a bead of silicone. Put enough weight on top to press it down and seal it. Leave for 24-48 hrs. I've replaced the window 3 times and this fix has lasted 2 years now. total cost about $10 and a little effort. make sure you use heat tolerant silicone.
I've got a 4306, and while it never leaked, the bottom door gasket did seem to chemically melt over the years.
I replaced it a few months ago. I don't know that a steam vent is needed as the gasketing system never allows any steam pressure to build. And, if anything, in general, the gaskets are in worse shape now than when the dishwasher was new, so leakage due to steam pressure would have been greater when new.
Thanks for using FixYa. If you
have nuisance water leaks around the base of your dishwasher, you may be using
a detergent that is causing too much suds. Cut back on the amount of detergent
you use, and see if that makes a difference. Water that spills through the door
vent is usually caused by improperly loading dishes. Leaks from the door itself
may be caused by a faulty door gasket or door tightness adjustment. you should
check the main tub seal, the door latch, the door gasket, the water-inlet valve,
and the fill and drain hoses.
Also make sure the dishwasher is sitting level (you can adjust the front feet
up or down, and many units have some type of levelers at the rear).
Water under the dishwasher may be originating from a leaky hose or loose hose
connection. Remove the lower front panel, and check the hoses. The pump seal
may be defective, too; replacing this is a job for an appliance repairperson.
An older dishwasher may corrode at the bottom, but this is fairly uncommon. If
this is the case with your dishwasher, it's time for a new one.
Please do rate the solution if the issue is resolved or
else revert for further assistance.
I had a similar problem with a KUDM25SHWH1 dishwasher. Rubber seal looked fine. I found an incredible tip on another fixi it site. One possible problem iss the pump cover screws may have worked loose and is squirting water directly on the door seal. Man that was it! I saw a couple of looses screws and a small portion of the pump cover gasket showing. I loosened the pump top, reset the gasket tightened it all down...no leaks! The pump I refer to is located directly below the spray arm inside the washer. Easy to get to. Another tip was to look for a split sspray arrm that may spray water directly into the door seal.
