Dishwashers usually have a removable (often reversible) panel on the door.
Loosen the screws holding the trim & you should be able to slide it out.
Maybe the color you want is already there?
Otherwise, clean with a solvent prep, lightly sand & paint away. You can get
'appliance paint' in spray cans. I've also used plastic laminate (i.e.
Formica) to make dishwasher panels. I've also made raised panel inserts to
match cabinetry - but you'll need to figure out how to increase the spring
tension holding the door if you do that.
