I have meeditated and attempted to balance my yin and yang but to no avail. My frustration level is high and I can't figure out what happened here but the door just falls open now. It used to open and suspend wherever you wanted it to.

I described the appliance but here it is again
Amana SofSound II Undercounter Dishwasher Model # ADB2200AWW

The dang thing is less than 2 years old so I am a bit out of my Zen center on this. Thanks for any and all help

It sounds as if you have a broken door spring or springs found on the end of the door hinges connecting to the side frame.  Check these by taking the bottom kick plate off and visually inspecting them, if it is the door springs when you replace them make sure that they are not rubbing against the cabinet.

Thanks,
This is indeed where the problem lies. It is a pulley system connected by a cheap piece of plastic. Thanks for the advice on checking the cabinent rub. After I get the part I'll check it out.

Thanks for the great help, it's nice to know there are still true professionals out there willing to share knowledge.
