I removed the screws around the edge of the door inner cover and lifted the upper edge which exposed the interlock cover. I removed the old cover, what a surprise to find that the old cover was warped which allowed the interlock micro switches to move. After I removed the old cover I pulled out the interlock plunger and spring and replaced these items and installed the new interlock cover which had more reinforcement than the old cover. I repositioned the door inner cover and reinstalled the screws. The dishwasher started up as it was supposed to and has done so ever since the repair was completed.
