Door kept un latching during wash cycle Rolland W. • Hilton Head, SC • March 04, 2015 Appliance: KitchenAid Undercounter Dishwasher KUDS01FLBL5 My Repair & Advice Tried bending the strike to get a firmer grip, but no luck. Replaced the door latch and strike. Washer is about ten years old. You can feel the new catch has a more positive engagement. When you replace the strike, be sure not to tilt it downward in front. It will go in the way but it will keep the door from closing. Not sure I needed to replace the strike but didn't want to risk more downtime. Was this review helpful to you?
