Check also if the door is ok, if the hinges (part 3 on diagram) are bent or if some part is damaged.
Below door diagram:


If you do not find anything else, then replace the door latch, PS976065 , part 12 on door diagram.

My KitchenAid Dishwasher door won't stay closed. It keeps popping open after a few seconds.

I experienced the same problem after my tension cables broke. The door fell open with such force that it bent the hinges a little. If you've replaced the tension strings (which you should do every 5-8 years) then you don't have to replace the latch. I did and it didn't solve the problem.
Here's the solution:
Put a towel at the bottom of each side of the door by the hinge.
Push the door closed a couple of times to bend back the hinges.
Remove the towels and you're back in action.
Good luck

Frigidaire dishwasher PLD2855rfc3 not drying.

I personally would contact a professional if the heating element was installed correctly and is pulling power, if the air dry setting is not selected, and you do not have any other error codes.

1995 Honda passport right rear door wont close

do you slam it and it makes a crash noise abd bounces back?? when a car door shuts it has a "hole" in the door with a lever that catched the rod that is attatched to the sub frame of the car. if that lever has been pushed down prior to closing it will never let the door close.. get a screw driver and force the "prong" back open where it can accept the rod on the sub frame

Dishwasher doesn't start

You are right, the door switches are a problem on this model. They both need to open when the door is open and both close with the door closed. You can try spacers to help adjust them. Be sure the power is shut off first.

Hp inkjet 5650 cover will not close and I can't print anything.

I own several 5650's. There are two ways to solve it. Open then let the lid slam shut several times, and eventually it will close all the way. Second is to slap the right side of the printer and the vibration will let the lid close. Use gentle but firm force, I have done this alot and no damage.

Cranky dishwasher

You want to make sure that the dishwasher is level and secure first of all. Then I would look into the door latch assy. Sounds to me that you are not making all the latch switches when closing normally. When you are slamming it, you are making the switches. The heating element runs through the neutral side of switches, therefor if the switch is broken or the latch is not making, no heating of the water. This results in a default or very long wash time. Check this out back.
