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

The intermittent version of this seems to be related to the cable that goes to the subwoofer portion. Have seen this behavior when the cable got loose. Unfortunately, I believe that this behavior may get worse in the long run and cause CDs to not play at all.

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!

On each side of the dishwasher, near the ground, is a nylon cord and pulley apparatus that keeps the door from flopping down when opened. It probably needs some adjustment of the tension on the cord.

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.
