Question about Dishwashers
I have a simple problem (I think!). The door of my dishwasher won't stay open. It just swings back into the closed position, so I have to stand on the door to empty the dishwasher or hold the door down with one hand while I empty the dishwasher. Any ideas/solutions?
sounds like the a bad door switch issue, machine doesnt think door is closed so wont operate. could also be a keypad issue not recognizing start button is being deperssed

My Bosch wasnt balck but had a white bit that stuck up on the door that stopped it closing - to fix and it might work here use two screwdrivers to pull on both sides from behind as such - recreates the latch on opening!

look at the latch via the hole in the door where it closes to the tank? is the latch faced away from the tank? if so, then grab a paper clip and fold it so you can hook it around the latch then just pull outward towards the tank. you might need to hold that paper clip with some pliers. if it happens more than once then you will need to replace that door lock.

I had the same problem and with some pushing and pulling I got the door open again.
TURN OFF THE BREAKER....
Next take all the screws out of the door panel to access the door latch assembly. You will see the handle has plastic tabs that hold it in place which are broken. Order a new assembly and install it.
My problem was getting the wiring harness off of the switches they are clipped on very tightly so I just kept the old ones connected and put them on the new assembly.

Switch off the machine at your plug end and switch ON.
Check incoming water flow. Check and fill rinse-aid liquid in the dispenser. Check dish washer salt dispenser and fill.
These are the only actions an user can try.
