KitchenAid Dishwashers - Recent Questions, Troubleshooting & Support
My KitchenAid Dishwasher door won't stay closed. It keeps popping open after a few seconds.
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.

Do you have a volt meter. If so remove the wire harness going to water inlet valve. Get your prones hooked to the two wireharness going into inlet valve. Start the machine and when it is time to fill water there should be 110 V on your meter. If no 110 V that means either the water level switch (float) is not working (you have replaced that I supposed) or control board not sending power or your wire harness between the control board and water level switch and inlet valve is broken. I have come across the wire harness is just pinched and broken at the very end where it get connected to the inlet valve. (Be careful with electricity when doing live tests. If you are not familiar with working multi meter and electricity, please call a repair guy).
