SOURCE: Am model Hobart dishwasher
Yes. Most of the AM models have a magnet on the RH door, and a corrospnding reed switch on the jam. Sometimes the magnet fractures in the casing and weakens its strength. Otherwise it is likely the reed switch.
On the more recent AMs, it you open the control box and there is a green board on the inside of the door. There will be an LED to show when the door is closed. Look towards the bottom right of the board.

Testimonial: "Turns out it was mice eaten wiring."
SOURCE: Hello. I have a 1993 Hobart
There are a few possible causes of this, so it's easier to explain how it works and how to find the fault. There is usually a wire or cord attached to each hinge. The cord is threaded anti-clockwise through a pulley then runs vertically up to near the top of the washer where it's attached to a spring. When looking at the side of the washer, the spring is usually about 2-3 inches back from the door and attaches about 2-3 inches below the top of the washer.
To find the fault you need to remove the side panel/s of the washer. It helps if you can identify which side has lost tension (it could be both) as this avoids removing one side panel unnecessarily. Once you have removed the panel, you should be able to see the back of the hinge and the pulley/cord/spring assembly. It should then be fairly obvious what the fault is - it could be a detached/stretched/broken spring, or a detached/broken cord.
Hope this helps.
