Re: botton door sticking hard to open and close
It is likely the drawer seal assembly is not working properly.
You will have to get the drfawer out from the housing and check the top inside of the housing to see if the seal is broken or can be more complex if the seal actuator motors are out of alignment. Will need to call technician if you are not familar with electrical components.
If you keep operating like this then water leak can cause damage to dishwasher.

Push in the top and bottom trays. Close the door. Now, open the door. Are either the top or bottom trays pushed out?
In the bottom center is your water distribution vanes. Are they stuck up in the operating mode? Push the center water distribution vane down, push the top and bottom trays in, close the door and reopen. Are the upper or bottom tray sticking out? inspect the guide rails. Is there something blocking them?
So, your problem is:
1.) The trays are pushing against the door because they will not go in all of the way.
2.) You have a broken latch assembly.
You did not provide a model number. This is on a tag either on the top of the door or on the face of your dishwasher after you open the door

The newer Whirlpool dishwashers have little slots in the top of the soap dispenser to allow water to seep in during the first water fill. This design allows the tablet to begin to dissolve during the first fill then be usefull when the soap door opens. In your case, I would check to see if the soap dish is opening at all. Perhaps one of the racks are not allowing clearance or the soap door itself is sticking closed.
Let the dishwasher fill, drain, and then fill again. Open the door of the dishwasher and see if the soap door is still closed and if so, there is your problem. Also, at this time, check the water temperature. It should be at least 120 degrees F for the soap to be effective.
If it is whirlpool--Make sure it has power. Then:Check the door switch.
A little lever sticking down through top right of door opening. If it is
not there you will need new door switch(sometimes the little lever
breaks off). If it is there and does not click when you press it in you
need a new door switch. if it clicks when you close the door
then you have a bad thermal fuse.The thermal fuse is found by taking
the back of the dryer off. The fuse is an oblong white plastic piece
with 2 wires attached.
