If the latch is adjustable, adjust it. If that doesn’t work, replace latch

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.

Try turning off the Braker for about five minutes to reset it.

The problem seems to be the loosening of the screws that hold the interior stainless steel skin to the door frame--not the latch.

With the door in the open position you should find a total of twelve screws (5 on each side and 2 on top at each side of the latch). The screws have a particular type of head which may require a trip to the hardware (its a $1,000 dishwasher take the time to get the right screwdriver). They are called TORX screws the size on my dishwasher was a T 15. These type of screw heads were designed to fit automated torque drivers at the factory that set the screws to the proper tension. So some care should be given when you retighten them. Turn until the screw is snug and there no movement of the inner door skin but don't over tighten. Giving it that extra 1/4 turn can be enough to strip the screw out and create a bigger problem.

Yes--you shouldn't have to be doing this to a KitchenAid appliance that cost this much--but I suspect that this will become a feature of periodic maintenance. The heating and cooling generates enough movement that overtime these screws work themselves out. My wife who was the once to make the right diagnosis noticed that the screws at the bottom were almost entirely out.

Thanks for this information. I was able to follow triburi's instruction and just make sure all the electrical connector is connect properly. It works after i put it all back. I guess i am just lucky one of the connection come lose.

Stick a soft wooden stick in there and swirl it a bit. The other option is to add vinigar and do a short wash for the sensor inside cleans up. Last option would be to remove larger cover and check for obstructions and connections

Look at drain lines under sink, if you have PVC put a bucket or large plastic pan under and remove all the drain lines and inspect them. Look at air gap or ensure drain line highest point is just under the bottom of counter top,. look at pump in dw to ensure is is working.
