The dishwasher was not properly leveled on installation. I used a carpenter's level
and trued up the problem. The door now stays closed.

However, the latch design is faulty in that it does not ever feel securely latched and that is true of all the Kitchenaides that I tried in the showrooms.

Bosch dishwasher door pops open during cycle

The dishwasher door keeps popping open


I have the same problem and it appears that everyone else who has replaced the door seal runs in top this issue. This is a new seal design that is different from the original. This new seal is obviously poorly designed is placing too much pressure on the door causing it to either not close, or open mid cycle. I am presently duck taping the door closed when running the machine in the hope that the heat cycling the new seal will eventually cause it to deform and relieve the pressure. I see that other have attempted to help the process by increasing the release pressure on the latch. This will be the last Kitchenaid large appliance I purchase.

Dishwasher stops during cycle and full of dirty water


you are having a problem with your door latch.the unit may not be staying closed or the latch strike is not in position to engage the door switches.
check the metal bracket just where the door closes and try to bend it downward , closer to the door and see if this helps to keep it working.

Hi
Door latch.
Open and close the door to make sure the door latch is securely fastened.
Check the dishwasher wiring for a possible loose connection where it connects to the house wiring.
Fuses or circuit breakers.
Check your house fuses or circuit breakers to make sure you have power to the dishwasher.

Opened door during cycle, latch now stuck in closed position, can't re-close


twist a paperclip around some pliers so you have a circle opening. then hook the paperclip around the latch and pull outward with the pliers. once the latch is facing outwards the door should close again

Dishwasher problem


First: this is what Whirlpool says!!
And after this at the bottom Is what the repair manual says when I looked it up for you!


Dishwasher is not operating properly
1.Dishwasher does not run or stops during a cycle
Is the Start/Resume indicator flashing? Opening the door or
interrupting the power stopped the cycle. Close the door and
press START/RESUME.
2.Does the Start/Resume indicator flash 3 times when you
press START/RESUME? The dishwasher is waiting for you to
open the door after the last cycle. Open and close the door,
then press START/RESUME.
3.Is the door closed tightly and latched?
(NOTE: On models with a dual-digit display, the control
displays “- -” during a cycle if it believes the door is not
latched.)
4.Is the right cycle selected? Refer to the “Cycle Selection
Charts.”
5.Is there power to the dishwasher? Has a household fuse
blown, or has a circuit breaker tripped?
6.Has the motor stopped due to an overload? The motor
automatically resets itself within a few minutes. If it does not
restart, call for service.
7.Is the water shutoff valve (if installed) turned on?
It is normal for certain cycles to repeatedly pause for several
seconds during the main wash.
___________________________________________________________

BUT, the repair manual says this


Faulty Pump and Motor Assembly Some models that will not wash or drain often have a faulty Pump and Motor Assembly. If the motor is receiving power from the timer and it is not operating that is the case.
Temporary Work-around:
With the power turned off to the unit, sometimes it is possible to manually rotate the cooling fan on the motor assembly. In certain situations where the dishwasher has set idle for a period of time, this may free the bearings enough that the unit will begin to operate. Where this works as a short term solution in some cases, it is often a sign of things to come. The frequency of the motor seizing will increase until it will simply no longer work.

I think this is a hands job that needs service and hands on attention!
I hope it's not the motor or pump!

How old is the machine?
If they tell you it is an expensive motor then you need to know this!!!!


Let me know how it goes!
Thanks for giving me the opportunity to help!

If your dishwasher does not run or stops during a cycle

press START/RESUME.
Does the Start/Resume indicator flash 3 times when you
press START/RESUME? The dishwasher is waiting for you to
open the door after the last cycle. Open and close the door,

If the dishwasher will not fill

Check the overfill protection float that is able to move up and down
freely? Press down to release.

Let me know if any of these procedures helped you?

Dishwasher sticking half way through cycle


Crawlmom, it sounds like your door latch assy. and switches are not making properly sometime during the wash. Therefore the two dashes. You want to make sure that the dishwasher is level and securely mounted. Another thing is, on this model, if a key pad is stuck, the dishwasher will stop and flash the stuck key. Im not sure where the red light is coming from. Without being there, I'm leaning on the door switch assy. Check this out first and post back. Catriver.
