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

Double check that model number...tell me what lights are alternating...that's a error code.

KitchenAid... | Answered on Jan 10, 2019

Model number? The model number is inside the door normally. Any lights on or it, or old dial type with no front lights?

Its inside the control board itself, its snapped into it with little tabs holding it.'s round, and has two wires on it. About the size of a nickel.

  • HomeApplianceService Jan 08, 2019 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).

if your fuse is blowing often i would suggest you to move your washer to a different place and try a different plug point.

there may be some fault with your power.

try to sort it out step by step.

HOW OLD IS IT AND NEED FULL MODEL #. In general undue screws at bottom kick plate and lift upward and it should come off. but some older models also have screws in the top of the panel that must be removed to get the panel off.

Have a look on your receipt. In other words you are asking how old a piece of equipment is without divulging the basics of information.

We found that for our kude40fxss5 dishwasher worked to press any 3 keys in the secuence 1-2-3 / 1-2-3 / 1-2-3 / with no more than 1 second between keys... then all the lights go on... close the door... allow about 30 seconds and then press cancell. It should restore normal operation. I hope it helps.

The control board may have to be replaced rather than reset.
