Default Kitchaid diswasher won't start & door won't stay closed
Model Number: KUDP01FLSS1   Brand: Kitchen Aid   Age: More than 10 years

Problem 1: After the repairman installed a new cabinet door seal, the door wouldn't stay closed. First I tried replacing the strike plate, then the door latch. It worked perfectly for two days, then started popping open again. It appears to be near the end of the cycle when it pops open, as both soap bins are empty and the dishes appear washed, but there is water in the bottom and the door is slightly open and the "heavy" light is still lit. I've been pressing "cancel" and then "rinse""start" to empty the remaining water, since a couple of times it would run the full cycle again if I just closed the door.

Problem 1: Last night the door popped open with some water remaining in the bottom, I pressed "cancel" but the "heavy" light wouldn't go out, so I pressed "rinse only" then both the "heavy" and the "rinse only" lights were on and "cancel" wouldn't work. I kept pressing "cancel", then the "heavy", the "normal" and the "4 hour delay" lights were all blinking at the same time and "cancel" did nothing, so I flipped the breaker. Then only the "heavy" light was on, so I just closed the door, but nothing happened.
When I came down this morning, no lights were on, but there was still water in the bottom. I pressed "rinse only" "start" but nothing happened. Normally, when you press "start" the "rinse only" light would blink, but it did not. Now "cancel" will turn off the light next to the selection, but "start" will not start anything.

Can you help me with my two problems:
(1) The door won't stay closed
(2) The machine won't start

A question related to problem (1). In looking at Kitchenaid dishwashers at the store, I see that the strike plate for Model KUDL03FVSS if a stiffer, more solid one that the flimsy strike plate for my machine. Would that strike plate fit my machine and possibly solve the problem of the door not being held shut during the washing cycle?
