Question about Kenmore 24 in. 17482 / 17484 / 17489 Built-in Dishwasher
Most likely the spring or springs that help the door up are broken. Usually, if you remove the lower front panel (usually 2 screws hold it on) you can access the springs. If they are broken, try your local appliance repair store for new ones. If they are that old, they may be rusted- be careful!
