Hi,Welcome to Just Answer, My name is XXXXX XXXXX forward to helping you today.
Most of the time bending the door catch (strike) will straighten this problem out I'm not sure which way you would need to give it a little bend either up or down, this is what the strike looks like, it's in the very top center front of the machine this is what slides into your latch assembly and locks it a lot of times these get bent up or down, try adjusting it a little bit each way by bending it either down or up, try the door as you do this until you get it so it locks, if that doesn't work you will probably need to replace the latch assembly, this is located inside the door so you would need to remove all the screws around the door on the inside and lift the panel up to access this. Here is a link to order this part if you need it. http://www.repairclinic.com/PartDetail/Latch-Assembly/8193830/961514?modelNumber=KUDP01FLBL3 I hope this helps, thanks and happy New Year's, Bryan
I can't tell cause I can't see it - the kitchen counter extends over it.
But when I push it closed , I can see the latch is moving up.
I just noticed something - my latch wasn't coming out straight like the one in the picture, it was bent up at 90 degrees. So I pulled it out so it was straight and I guess I pulled it too far cause it closed, but when I pulled it open (it was hard to open) it was then bent down 90 degrees.
I have it now where it seems to be straight and it closes - it seems ok but it opens very easily. Maybe it always did.
