SOURCE: Have a Viking trash compactor
I have had this same problem and found two causes. Latch was never the problem.
#1 - Ram not in full up position. To check remove top plate and attempt to run compactor - depressing microswitch when ram is at the top. If compactor will not run you can check the ram position by turning the primary screw drive with a ratchet wrench. When ram is at the top position attempt to open the compactor drawer. The stop microswitch seems to frequently bend out of alignment - check the microswitch positioning before resecuring top plate and adjust if necessary.
#2 - Can (or other debris) is wedged in between ram and drawer. Remove back cover and carefully inspect insides of the unit - use a flashlight. Pry out any debris that may impede the drawer from opening. Attempt to open the compactor drawer.

Hello, welcome to fixya
Here's what works for me, move the rack stops to the left if you haven't already and then the rack itself. i.e.
Now you'll need to remove the bumpers at the back of the rack rail...
push down on the bumper as shown
and pull it down and out at the same time...it takes some force, you can use a small screwdriver.
Now you'll need to slide the rail all the way out as shown, but careful not to let the ball bearings fall into the sump area in the process.
I usually hold the broken piece in place while removing the rail...
...( they come in a kit at "repairclinic.com" under number 1394379 like shown here )
The trick now is to install the balls into the holders first
and the holders into the stationary part of the rail on the inside wall...
The inside wall rail will keep the holders in place as you slide the inside rail into place...this will usually require holding the holder with one hand while pushing the sliding rail back into place...
Once this is done, re-install the back rail bumpers followed by the rack and then finally the front rack stoppers and that should do it.
Hope that explain it for you or gives you an idea of how it needs to be done. Please take a moment to rate the assistance I provided here today favorable and a brief testimony is also appreciated when providing free solutions.
Thanks for visiting "fixya" today for your repair help. Let me know if you require further assistance.
I should also mention you as I alluded to, be sure none of the old 8 ball bearings didn't fall down into either the drain pump or circulation/wash pump. This is something I've seen far too often on Asko/Viking dishwashers with the end result being a broken impeller in either pump...or both, yikes ! I use a telescopic magnet to fish around as it will be the only object made of metal...unless something else has fallen in the sump well area, it's good to check.
Again, good luck :)
