Kitchenaid dishwasher door latch broke

How can I get the door open? I was able to remove the lower front panel. Thinking I could reach up inside with a hook and a flashlight and pull on the latch. Maybe if I could find a picture of the latch I could get a better guess as to what is happening. Suggestions?

Google Kitchenaid and the model number, and you can find a spec sheet with pictures. Does the handle lift up or do you throw a handle over to lock it? Post the model number and we'll see if we can help further.

Where is the model number? Inside the machine? Can't even pull the machine out as it is screwed to the counter top. This is the style with the handle that pulls up. Suggestions? Big pry bar?

Do you have an owners manual?
If so- call Kitchen Aid watts #.
If not--it's time for the repair guy.............
