Question about Asko 24 in. D3121XL Free-standing Dishwasher
The door latch and or door handle assembly which also holds the door switch may have brocken.
If the door latch does not shut properly, this will not close your door micro switch. And if the switch is not closed then the machine will not operate.
Turn off machine at the power source. Open the dishwasher door. You may want to put some weight on the door to stop it from springing back up.
If you have a star allen key or a star shaped tool, you can open the screws around the stainless steel plate of the dishwasher door. Start with the ones on top, which secure the control panel and door lock. See if you can remove the control panel gently without having to open the screws for the front door panel. Sometimes you may need to loosen the front panel screws to free the top control panel.
Once you remove the panel, you will notice a door handle assembly which also holds the micor switch. Take note of how it is set up. Also examie to see if any plastic parts are broken. You may need to order the complete door latch or door handle assembly and replace.
While doing this make sure the machine is turned off at the power source.

Thank you for your inquiry, kh57ca!
From what you are describing it sounds like the door latch assembly needs to be replaced. This is not a simple DIY job though. I would recommend seeking guidance from a professional technician to properly replace the door latch to avoid any future issues. Some of these intricate parts require precision and patience, therefore when replacing such components or removing them from your appliance, I would suggest seeking professional assistance. I hope this has been beneficial. -Matt
