what you are describing is the door link. you can purchase the part and just replace them. they do get loose as they are just made out of plastic. if you can provide me with the model #, will give you the part # that you need.

Our dishwasher is one that we put our own "Door on it" in our case, it matches the cabinet. It is designed for that.
I went on-line and ordered the replacement parts. I can't recall the site but I will look thru my files and send to you if I find it.
I removed our door front and slid the DW out about 1/2 to 2/3 of the way. I did not want to mess with disconnecting power and water lines. 1/2 way out should be enough room to work on the places you need to be. On both sides near the back and bottom you will see a large tension spring. Be careful not to bust a knuckle here. Using a sturdy hook of some kind is recommended. In place of that you might try a solid wooedn hanger with a heavy hook on it. BE CAREFUL, while pulling on the front part of the spring you will release the tension on the cord that is around the plastic guide wheels and attaches to the bottom hinge of the door.
Release the hook and then the tension you have on the spring. repeat this on the other side. With both sides free the door should lift off the hinges and the base it sits on. inspect your hinges. mine were bent, not much, but I was at whits end. I replaces both. I also replaced both cords that were attached to the tension spring and one of the plastic roller wheels ? I am sure there is a better name for them. It was the longer of that is on the tear drop shaped fastener.
I then placed the door back in posistion and closed it. On the the tear dropped shaped guide wheel (the one at the bottom) you will see that there are holes to adjust the tension. The closer you move this wheel towars the front of the machine, the more tension on the hinges. I set mine in the middle and this seemed to work. Before you slide it back in the space, try a test to see if the door stays shut. ie. run a rinse cycle too. Hopefully that is all you will need to do...BUT.
That was not to total solution in our case. I ended up ordering and replacing the door switch (a black plastic piece that is what the metal latch on the machine is supposed to "hook" into.
Replacing it is fairly simple. I did shut the power off for this. This part is replaced by taking off your face plate which is secured bu screws inside of your DW door around the edge. You will see 4 screws to remove and it "snaps" out. At this point you can see the working relationship with the latch, the switch and the contacts on the switch that the door latch (metal part coming out of the top of the DW) after replacing this...try the process again and hopefully your issue will be solved. I had to remove my latch and bend it back to the original shape and mess around with a slight bend to make it latch and hit the contacts in the door latch.
Good luck! I am sorry this is so long. :-)
