Dishwasher door do not have locks they only stay closed by a friction latch.

You should be able to pull it open!

Does it look as if anything on top of the door between the door and the underside of the countertop is blocking it from opening?

I can' find it. It's new. Maybe I should go searching again?
Expert:  Whrlp Master Tech replied 1 year ago.

the control lock only locks the keypads has nothing to do with the door opening and closing

How old is it you say it`s new is it less then 1 year old?
