Why does my dishwasher door not stay open?

How does a dishwasher door switch work?

These little switches are tucked inside the control panel of your dishwasher and most times are a part of the door latch. The door latch pulls the door securely to the main body of your dishwasher and prevents water from leaking during a cycle. If your dishwasher doesn’t start, it could be due to a faulty door switch.

Can you clean a dishwasher inlet valve?

Locate the solenoid valve, remove the inlet hose, and then unscrew the brass angle fitting. Loosen the inlet hose, and pull the hose away from the valve. Pop the screen out with a pick or small screwdriver, and clean or replace it. Reassemble the parts in the reverse order.
