Have you tried using a thin wire or skewer to release the latch by inserting it between the door and machine.

Does not latch


The door latch must make positive contact with the under-counter latch lock. The machines position is critical when shutting the door. Make certain the tab on the counter is making proper contact, not too much forward or backward, or bent up or down too much. The other adjustments are the Tilt backward and adjustment of the levelers at the corners of the washer (lower right and left sides). A front tilt could cause water leaking, so be careful when adjusting up or down.

Falls open when? This unit wom't operate unless the door is secure so I assume you mean the door assist springs are disconnected or broken and the door just falls heavily to the open position after you unlatch it from the closed position. Try these, part 18 here

should attach to frame in an easy to distinguish hole or slot and to door hinges, number 2 here

Well I'll try to help you get this opened. I don't know how much space you have at the top side edge of the dishwasher. You need a long stiff rod like a metal clothes hanger straightened so it can reach from the side to a little past the dishwasher middle. You need to push it in between the door top and the dishwasher body up at the latch area. What holds the door closed is a flat metal piece with a plastic hook on the end facing down towards the floor. You need to try and get the rod under the metal piece and lift it slightly, hopefully to unhook the the door. If you can't do that, the only alternative is to pull hard on the door handle and you should be able to break the plastic part of the latch which will then have to be replaced. The part that should break is the top hook which would be an easy replacement, but I can't be sure thats all the damage to the latch that will happen. It may do some damage to the part inside the door also. This is last resort. I'll try to attach a parts breakdown of the tub so you can see the latch hook. Look at item #50

Hi.


Your husband must check wiring harness from electronic control to door lock solenoid.

The solenoid should also be tested reading Ohms with a multimeter.

Failing door latches


Misaligned door. To much weight on door. Someone, maybe a child, hanging on door when opened.

Replacement Door Panel for GE Profile Dishwasher


Are you trying to replace the microwave door or the GE dishwasher. Either way, www.applianceart.com (under the stainless steel section) has this roll of stainless material that you apply to your appliances. I saw it on the "Today Show." Its basically faux stainless. We put it on our refrigerator and it looks and even feels like real stainless steel. Its really cool. I think its called stainless foil or something like that. Also if you're looking for a stainless panel for your dishwasher they sell actual stianless panels there too.

Dishwasher not working


Check for power with a tester at the junction box under the machine. If power check for a broken door latch switch.
