Also check for leveling.  If unit is level and not too tight to countertop door should latch and seal as designed.

There's no adjustment on this door latch-- if the door isn't making a good, tight seal and maybe leaking a little, replace the door seal.

 

Also suspect that the hinges may be bent.

the left hinge part # 8534854 was sitting higher than the other one. I bent the tab so the pin slips in the space and the door sits lower and even. it still does not shut completely. the dishwasher is not all the way in the pace and the L/H leg needs to go back a few inches to sit behind the tile. I wasn't able to do it yesterday by myself without braking a filler panel next to the dishwasher. The only reason I took the dishwasher out was to replace a broken water line to the sink.
