I have the same problem with our Kitchenaid dishwasher popping open that seeming hundreds of others have. I have had limited success bending the strike (MFG part # 8574157) down. It seems very flimsy and ineffective (metal fatigue?). Now the door pops open ten or more times during a cycle. I intend to order a new strike, hoping that will solve the problem. I am also thinking of replacing the latch (8193830), since this is the part that engages the strike. Should I replace only the strike first to see if that solves the problem, or should I replace both? The latch is much more involved to replace. I am hoping the strike alone will solve the problem. I have checked the hinges and the door will stay open at any position, so I don't think there's a problem there.

I replaced the latch and strike on my kitchenaid superbra undercounter dishwasher. Before, I could use a mop to hold it closed and it would work. It is staying closed on its own but it does not start. Do you have any ideas on what could cause this? The lights on the panel work but the dishwasher is not engaging. In addition, I am not hearing the click associated with the water and latch engaging. Thanks Sam,

Latest Questions

This is not so much of a question as it is more an observation. I just finished fixing this dishwasher because it was no longer latching securely after replacing the two counterbalance ropes. What I found when the ropes eventually broke is the door slammed down on its own and that it literally bent the hinges some. Upon removing the hinges I could see how they were bent. I was able to straighten the hinges, chances are most people probably would have to replace them. One way I could tell they were bent before disassembly was when I closed the door the bottom of the door would strike the inner lower dish rack. My suggestion for most people would be to replace the hinges. People complaining of the door no longer remaining latched after replacing the counterbalance ropes, most likely have this scenario and should replace the hinges.At first I thought it was the latch failing I disassembled the latch itself and found very little wear after seven years of operation.. After straightening the hinges I was amazed at how much more securely the door latched. Thank you I'm just passing this information on to you. The question and answer information I found on your website was extremely helpful. When the hinges bend this causes the lower portion of the door to be cocked inward and upward causing an oversensitive latching scenario.

Replaced the two counter balanced ropes and the door will not "catch". I have tried adjusting the strike plate and still it pops open. Help!

It seems to me that Kitchenaid has a design flaw with the strike on this dishwasher in that it is not strong enough to hold the door closed, or at least get weaker with use. Again, the new strike I got from another model was much stronger and holds the door shut, but won't "acknowledge" that the dishwasher is door is closed because it was not wide enough. Hence, the apparent need for a stronger strike for this model that will hold the door shut. Seems like a lousy design to me.
