Hello and thanks for using this service, if you have been waiting do not worry or get upset I am just one of the techs on here and I try to get to as many customers as I can and I just picked up your question now. Please give me time to respond sometimes I get your replies late so there may be a delay in my response.

Unfortunately this is non repairable. Stainless steel does not want to go back to its original shape like steel so any attempt to push it out will just result in making it more noticeable. You either have to replace the door panel or put a magnet over it as there is no other way to fix a dent. The discoloration is also an issue caused by poor quality stainless, it also is not really fixable and often any attempt to try a product on it makes it look worse. The only thing you can do is get some stainless polish to lessen the discoloration.
