I experienced the same problem after my tension cables broke. The door fell open with such force that it bent the hinges a little. If you've replaced the tension strings (which you should do every 5-8 years) then you don't have to replace the latch. I did and it didn't solve the problem.
Here's the solution:
Put a towel at the bottom of each side of the door by the hinge.
Push the door closed a couple of times to bend back the hinges.
Remove the towels and you're back in action.
Good luck

Sounds like the main Circulation Pump is not working correctly. Usually due to the plastic blades in the pump broken / or disintegrated. Replacement pump quite expensive!

I had this problem and discovered it was due to a leak. The float switch attached to the bottom panel was operating. Pull out the mains plug, tip the machine on it's side (water will escape so get a mop ready), remove the bottom panel, 3 screws front and back, disconnect the connector from the float switch. Tape the connecter up out of the way and stand your machine back up. Try running it now. If you have a leak somewhere then you will get a puddle under the machine. If no leak, then I would suspect the float switch itself.

Is your dishwasher hard wired into the house power system ... or plugged into a wall outlet under the kitchen sink?
You mentioned you turned off the power ... how? via the circuit breaker or disconnecting it from the wall? If your unit is plugged into an outlet (and you depowered by cutting the breaker) ... I would check the cord and outlet .. it might be as simple as that.
If that is not the problem ... trying a reset.
Below is a generic one for Whirpools which may work on your model
To reset it, you will have to have the door open. It can not be latched. Press "Heated Dry," "Normal," "Heated Dry," "Normal" within three seconds of the first pressed button. Now close the door, this should reset your dishwasher.
Good luck on your troubleshooting!

I guess you got the alarm AL 6 on your display what means failure to drain. A control procedure has been added to all the final drain phases in order to check the status of the pressure switch. The contact must be open in the "empty" position in order to ensure that the cycle is performed correctly. If the contact is closed, the drain phase is repeated. At the end of the second drain phase, if the pressure switch contact remains closed, "AL" alarm condition is generated.
Could be following:
  • Domestic drain circuit not suitable (obstructed / blocked)
  • Drain pump jammed
  • Pressure switch faulty
  • Sump - pressure switch tube obstructed
  • Filters / drain hose obstructed
  • Relay or Triac faulty

Down under is from AEG Favorit 86460 user manual, page 30 :

...a flashing fault code appears
an audible signal informs you that an alarm has been activated, in the display appears one of the following flashing alarms: AL1 - AL2 - AL3 - AL4 - AL5 - AL6 - AL7, AL8 and the indicator light of the phase under way is flashing. They are indicative of a fault in the dishwasher that you can probably rectify yourself.
- press the On/Off push button to switch the dishwasher off
- open the door and carry out the following suggested corrective actions.untitled-wdmylhxvjmokugi3zifm2oyn-2-0.jpg
