Question about Dishwashers
I had this happen to mine a couple of years ago .. due to vibrations the screw(2) there are two that hold it in place to the counter top which appears right above the handle to either side had lossened up and prevented the door from opening. I hope this is the case and if so you want the same lentgh screw but with a sloghtly wider tread to grab as the old screw will have made the hole it goes into bigger where it will not stay in place anymore unless you have a wide theaded screw..
It wil be hard to get it opened you will have to locate the screw that is causing the door not to open.. also it can be something along the sides of the dishwasher door getting jammed in the line of it closing and it has wedged itself in a way that prevents it from opening.. but once you do if this si the problem.. you have to do what i said above
I had to unscrew my mounting screws that hold it to the counter top which are along hte front under the lip of the counter at the top of the dish washer and slowly walk the dishwasher out from under the countertop.. take care not to pull it out too far as you have water lines connected.. dont need to flood the house..
i honestly think that the sides of the dsih washer problem was a screw fell in around the gasket and caused me to have a small leak..after we fixed the door getting jammed..so i think it is your mounting screws..
