Good try and I was hopeful. I tried that yesterday and it did not work. It seems to be quitting more lately, even when it is manually restarted. It finally completes the cycle about 10-20% of the time after restarted. I will be happy to increase your pay if I can get this fixed without a major outside repair bill, buying a new machine is still on the list.
Sometimes maybe it doesn't close as tightly, maybe. I will run another cycle and see if I can feel a difference in tightness after it quits. It will probably run a complete cycle this time, of course.
I think that you are onto something. I ran 2 complete cycles with steady pressure on the door, with a leaning chair and weight rig. Now what, do I change the latch?
Thank you, Sir.

I ordered the part and it should be here on Wednesday. I'll let you know after I replace it. This Just Ask is a brilliant idea for both you and me. I'll pay extra when it all works out.
OK Kelly, I got the part. Biggest question is which screws do I take off to get to the latch? I just want to make sure that I don't take the whole wooden cabinetry off of the DW. There are screws at the top and some around the edge that look like they attach the wood?
I got around to putting the latch on the DW today. It looks like the spring in the latch was a bit corroded and therefore it did not always spring closed. You were exactly right! My 17 yo son and I completed the project in about 20 minutes and we were heroes for a day to my wife! Thanks for your professionalism and patience. I'm leaving you an extra $20 and I hope that it all goes directly to you. Can I request you next time, or are you on a rotation?
I wish you all the best, Thanks again,
