Maytag dishwasher drawer won't shut


Hi...

I have Maytag dishwasher, model MDD8000AWS, and the top drawer will not shut. I have no clue how the latch mechanisms work on these and was curious whether anyone has any advice. The top drawer does not shut however the bottom one does.

Thanks

I thought I copied the whole thing off the dishwasher but I guess not. Must have missed a number.

I will take a look and post an update.

I actually have been browsing the link you sent and its a big help, thank you. I believe the symptom for the link was for the detergent, but the symptom list did not list drawer not closing.

I very well may be missing your suggestion but I look at the parts list and am guessing it may be a 'catch' or 'door latch'.

Am I missing something in the link you posted?

Thank you again
