The door latch on top of the tank has a magnet sensed by a Hall-
effect sensor in the door to determine if the door is open or
closed. The Hall-effect sensor is held by two T-10 Torx screws
and the door latch is held by two crimped tank tabs.

The dishwasher won't start if the door isn't closed securely or if
the door latch is misaligned. Push the door closed until the door
latch closes (i.e. until the latch clicks). If the dishwasher starts,
educate the customer on closing the door securely.
If the dishwasher won't start when the door has been securely
closed, check the door latch with a magnet. Hold the magnet
over the Hall Effect sensor (located just left of the left screw) – if
the dishwasher starts, the sensor didn't sense the door latch
Occasionally a door can catch on the door seal and not close
If the door, door latch or door seal is misaligned,
realign it. If the door latch is broken, replace it.
The dispenser, located in the middle of the inner door, reliably
dispenses detergent and rinse-aid.
