Question about KitchenAid Dishwashers
If your dishwasher door squeaks you have to check the following:
The latch on many dishwashers is adjustable. If your door is easy to close but difficult to latch, adjust the latch to let the door close more easily. If you can't see any way to adjust the latch, yours may be fixed in a certain position. Check for other reasons for the latching problem.
If the latch has worn out in a way that makes it impossible for you to close the door properly, you probably need to replace the latch.
Your dishwasher has two springs that counterbalance the weight of the door. If either or both of these are broken, the door feels quite heavy and you need to replace both springs.
The hinges are important to the door closing properly. If they're bent or deformed, you probably need to replace them. Once bent, only rarely can they be straightened well enough.
If your dishwasher is new or if you have just replaced a door seal the door may be difficult to latch for a week or two. If the tightness persists, though, try adjusting the latch, if it's adjustable. If it's not adjustable, there's probably nothing you can do immediately. But try running the dishwasher on the highest heat cycle to help the seal conform to the door. Otherwise, the seal should compress over time.

Tips for a great answer:
Thank you for your post, friend!
I see that you need assistance in repairing a squeaky door on your Frigidaire dishwasher. The best way to quiet down a squeaky door is to pinpoint the cause of the squeak. This could be an issue with your hinges, springs, or the cables. You can use a lubricant such as WD-40 on your those parts to see if that will help alleviate the squeaking. Hope this is helpful. -Matt
