I don't see many GE dishwasher myself. About how old is this dishwasher?

Maybe on of the other technicians can chime in with there thoughts about what they think is wrong.

Hope you find our site helpful.

Look for a tech sheet under the kickplate for error codes (blinking lights etc.). If not try turning off the power and let it sit for a bit before turning back on and see if it resets. Then I would check the operation of the 2 doorlock switches in the handle.

Sounds like there is a problem with the latch assembly I would replace it. If you don't own a meter and know how to use it this is all guesswork.
