  1. Hello beanbil1. I don't recognize that brand and type of dishwasher. The door will normally have a latch mechanism that is located just inside the inner door panel. There is normally a strike mechanism on the top of the opening to the dishwasher tub. You can check the strike to see if it can be adjusted so that the door will open properly. If the latch is broken, then I recommend that you have a service technician examine and repair that failure. You can call Sears at 1-800-469-4663 (1-800-4MY-HOME) to set up a service call. If you need more help, post some more information about the model and type of dishwasher that you have.

      Hi, beanbil1. I was able to do some additional research for you.

      I did not recognize the brand and model of your dishwasher, please see these general tips:

      I would recommend replacing the door latch assembly. The door latch assembly does have springs that should respond when you open and close the door. In your description it sound like the latch is not responding all the time. If you feel confident in making this repair here is a link to the latch; Latch assembly this does not include the latch handle or the door switch which I suggest you replace also. Here is the link to Sears Parts Direct.

      I hope this helps, should you need additional assistance reply with more details and I will be happy to respond.
