SOURCE: Door Tension
just about the most difficult job to do on a dishwasher, not normally a job for the home mechanic, i am an appliance engineer of 20 years and often shy away from jobs like this,
there is often no adjustment, the hinges are sprained, more often that not by people either putting weight on the door to stand back up, or children climbing on to get higher
the only thing i think you can do is to check the springs are in place and nothing is broken or just come off that can be put back?? sorry

I have the same problem with my newly installed Miele integrated dishwasher. The door does not stay open when you are trying to load dishes. I heard that there is an adjustable internal mechanism to adjust the tension on the door. But, I am still working on solving my problem.

what you need to do is slack off the spring tension on the door hinges. each side of the unit at the base on the plinth there is a screw with a spring symbol next to it. turn this anti clockwise to reduce the spring tension.
Hope this helps

you need to adjust the door tension springs which is by a screw each side of the hinges on the plinth of the unit at the front. There is a symbol of a spring to show you which screws to release. do them evenly and the door will not spring up,
