Thank you for asking your question on JustAnswer.
Your dishwasher is designed so that it won't start unless it can sense the door is closed. If there is a fault in the door switch circuit then the unit can't sense it. Check for a broken door switch. If OK next check the wiring for the door switch for opens, loose or broken wires.
