I have two of these dishwashers and they both will not keep the door closed. We have resorted to wedging a piece between the door and the counter to keep it closed. It appears as those the clasp is too weak to keep the door closed. I ordered a clasp that was much more sturdy, but it was not wide enough at the end to engage the sensors that tell the DW to start, but it did keep the door closed. Are there any more stout clasps for this model?

ANSWER Hello Randy! Are you speaking of the door strike 8574157 when you say clasp? This is the original strike on the dishwasher. If it has broken it will not hold the door shut. Thanks.
