First thought it was the latch with associated switch. However it turned out the front cover of the dishwasher with the plastic attachment pods were all broken preventing the latch switch from properly being held in place and preventing its function. Installed a new cover ($70.) and the machine works like new again. A cautious note: Never grab the front cover to move the dish washer this will break the attachment pods and prevent the latch switch from working properly.
