My JennAir jdb1100aws isn't closing tightly, but that's not keeping the water from running once we press 'start.'  I'm wondering which parts need to be replaced so that the door will close easily and securely AND the cycle won't run unless the door is secure.  We have had the door pop open mid-cycle - wet and messy.

I had read in a PartSelect post that someone had replaced the latch assembly with handle but that didn't solve the problem.  is there a way to know if this will solve it, or do I also need to order the catch and /or a new seal?

Thanks!
 :thanks:

Replace the latch assembly W10275768 .  You shouldn't need the catch or seal unless they're damaged.

This dishwasher has a towel bar handle.  I don't think a latch with handle will work.
