I have a GE Profile dishwasher, about 6 years old. It's very sensitive and will turn off easily during the wash cycle, possibly from a loose seal. It's now difficult just to even shut the door just right so that the dishwasher will start. It seems as though the door just isn't sealing correctly. Any suggestions?

It has been my experience that water doesn't damage motors it destroys them! While it is possible I guess I would look and see if there is any kind of drive mechanism between the motor and the arm that could have been damaged. A warped shaft, bearing or bushing or something of that nature.
It is unclear from your description if the wash pump starts and pushes the water around but never stops cycle or the dishwasher stops as soon as the water is filled.
If you do not hear the wash pump start then it is possible the wash motor is faulty. But if the wash pump starts and never completes the wash cycle then it is possible the heater is faulty and dishwasher is waiting for water to heat up before it can go to next cycle.
The problem is hard water. There is a new product out called the dishwasher filtration system.It filters the water before it enters your dishwasher. It works amazing and has a money back guarantee.You will love the way your dishes look after the first load. It is also very affordable (like 70 bucks). Go to www.dishwasherfilter.com to find out more info.
I had a similar problem with a GE GSD5811 model. The hoses were clear, and the auxiliary pump worked fine. It turns out that it was the "piston" assembly that had basically disintegrated over time. This part diverts water to the pump during the drain cycle.
To check it, remove the mesh filter at the rear of the inside of the machine, by carefully unclipping the heater element from the back of the machine and removing the 4 hex-head screws securing the filter panel.) Unscrew the piston assembly from the tub, and pull it out. If the sealing plunger has deteriorated or is jammed, replace it. The part number for the "piston and nut assembly" for my machine (and probably numerous others) is WD24X10018. It should cost anywhere between $10 and 16, depending on where you shop.
Another possibility is a bad drain solenoid. (This is what actually triggers the piston assembly during the drain cycles.)
1 has the machine been pushed into the cupboard hole,this will push the door away from the front of the machine,does it hit the trim around the opening before the closeing?pull out check under are the legs still straight,some you can remove the lower front panel to look under
Check disposer plug. If a garbage disposer has been recently installed, it is possible the disposer drain plug was not removed. The drain plug is a plastic piece in the disposer that blocks the hole where the dishwasher hose connects. Also check the hose connected to the disposal. Mine apparently had a kink in it. When I straightened the hose the dishwasher drained at full speed (I recently had a plumber re-route a hot waterline. He must has bent the hose). Hope this helps. If not go to the GE website. That's where I found my answer.
I had the same problem with my GE Adora. The dishes were getting cloudy and the soap dispenser would not open. Turns out the hard water deposits were causing the soap dispenser to stick shut. I purchased and used Dishwasher Magic which is a dishwasher cleaner designed to remove limescale, rust and buildup. I used as directed and now my dishes are sparkling and the soap dispenser pops right open.
