Default Maytag dishwasher door won't lock

Hello,

I have a Maytag model MDB5601AWB dishwasher. The door stopped locking shut, so I have a wet floor at the end of each load. There is a metal latch that extrudes from the top tub side, and a plastic locking mechanism inside the door. I can see that when I depress the handle, the plastic lock mechanism springs open. And when I close the door, the mechanism springs closed, but it does not close on the metal latch for some reason. I can't see why it doesn't close, because the metal latch is obviously the reason the mechanism is springing closed, but it doesn't hook onto the latch.

Any suggestions? Thank you!

Ok, cancel that request. I bent the catch so it latches good now.
