I have had the same problem since our KitchenAid was new. The only solution so far is to try bending the metal door latch down slightly. You will know when you have bent it too far as the door will no longer close. Just bend it back up slightly. I used to work in the appliance industry and got the service man to admit that the door latch has been an issue and there is no real fix. I have looked at the new KA dishwashers and they have since redesigned the door latch. I am going to see if the new latch can be retrofitted into my Kuds01FLSS6 dishwasher. I will post on here if indeed it works.

SOURCE: Door keeps popping open,will not
Thanks for using FixYa. As you have already replaced everything else so the issue is with the door switch going bad and should be replaced however, if that switch is fine then it is the control that is bad and should be replaced. Please accept the solution if the issue is resolved or post a comment for further assistance.
