This dishwasher will pop the door open during the wash cycle when heavy spraying is underway, I replaced the circuit board and wiring harness and then this problem started... I have since replaced both counterbalance ropes, but the problem persists. Did I move something out of alignment or is the latch possibly now at fault? Thanks, Craig

ANSWER Hello Craig. Check the latch assembly and where the wiring harness goes out the door, to make sure they are not binding up the door. Hope this helps.
