Question about LG Dishwashers
The problem is likely the hinges.
Unfortunately this is an Australian model, and I cannot show diagrams and pictures or provide service manual for the specific model.
The hinges are located at the sides of the appliance. With LG dishwashers you will have to remove the door liner to access the hinges.
I am not sure if the model in service manual below is the American equivalent, but it is very similar. The door assembly should be more or less the same.
Please click on the link below and see page 14, where explains how to remove the door.

It could be a door seal issues, have a look at seal and make sure its not cut. If seal looks fine then it can be a faulty door latch assembly or door hinge.
1) For Front Cover access, Open the door. Remove 6 screws(Stainless). 2) Control Panel Assembly-- Remove 8 screws(Stainless). Remove the wire connections. Be sure the wiring should not be changed in reassembling Remove the Latch assembly. Remove 8 screws for Controller. 3) Door Spring (Right & Left)-- Push the Spring upwards and take it off from the Hinge Bracket. Be careful not to be injured by the sharp edge of Tub. Take off the Hinge Link from the Hinge. Open the door. Pull the Door Liner and take it off from the Hinge Supporter.
Hope this helps... Please post back if you need more information.

Tips for a great answer:
Hello friend, thank you for your post!
It sounds like it could be an issue with the hinges. I would recommend having a technician come out to your home to diagnose your appliance properly. I understand that someone fell into the door and the hinges are not closing but there could be another issue with the door. Hopefully this is helpful. -Matt
