If your dishwasher door will not close or latch, or the machine will not start, you may need to replace the door latch. This genuine OEM replacement latch is meant to keep your dishwasher door closed while the machine operates, and if your latch is faulty your appliance may not work as intended. This is an easy repair that just requires a Phillips screwdriver, but you will need to pull the dishwasher out from underneath your counter to access the part. Since there is an electrical component involved, be sure to disconnect the power supply before beginning your repair. At this time, you should also inspect the door strike for damage, and replace that part if necessary.
