SOURCE: How do I replace the door latch on my dishwasher?

Don't try to bend anything! The latch mechanism in the door is probably broken. Open the door and remove the 11 torx screws holding the inner panel on. You will probably find broken plastic bits on the pathetically flimsy latch; mine failed after 4 years and I expect it to happen again.
If you do, see the link given in "I Have 3 problems with my dishwasher, my...", Unlatch the two switches and slide them off the old part and onto the new one, observing all the obvious precautions about not getting shocked and putting the switchess on correctly. Reassemble the door and latch with the screws.

Whirlpool Gold Dishwasher- bowls in center of top rack are full of water, bowls in corners have almost no or no water in them and dishes on top rack are dirty. Dishes on bottom rack are clean.

First try running a cycle of "Dishwasher Magic". You can find this at Walmart for around 5 bucks. This will clean and condition the inside of the dishwasher and the inside of the pump and motor.
If this doesnt help...and the plastic and/or metal components in the dishwasher seem to look and feel intact..this would lead me to believe there is an issue with the pump and motor. These are sold as 1 unit or as seperate units depending on the model. Changing it is simple if you know how to dissconnect and reconnect a dishwasher. Take into consideration the age of the unit, the cost of the part, and the cost of a total replacement.

GE dishwasher leaking somewhere from bottom, what are common problem ares for this to occur?

There are o-ring seals around many pump motors where they install in the bottom of dishwashers. There are also shaft seals which separate the electric motor from the pump unit. In order to research your options you need to know the GE model number and often the serial number.

There are many web based parts search engines to find out what your parts might look like. If you will find the model number located on your unit, then Google GE appliance parts. You will be led to a number of sites which you can then view exploded parts diagrams of your unit, part numbers and usually prices. I try to get an idea of parts price range by looking at several sites and then call my local parts supplier to see how they compare. I buy a lot of parts on line. You can often purchase OEM parts from on line dealers at a savings compared to local brick and mortar sellers even including shipping.

I have a friend who has a Hot Point dishwasher, it will not drain, the model # is HDA2000205WH, The Serial # is TV797163


What most likely is causing what is the drain solonoid that attatches to the pump assambly is hanging up and not opening the flapper inside the pump asm. allowing the dishwasher to drain.Usually that solonid wont open the flapper because of leakage on the seal for the pump flapper that connects to that soloniod. this link shows the solonoid asm. in item#s 413,418,426,493,494,497,&553 look at the drawing in the link to see what that solonoid looks like.If their is water leakage around that solonoin asm. the pump needs to replaced complete with that solonoid asm. If no leakage that solonoid could be replaced without having to replace the entire pump asm. The part# for that solonoid asm sold as a complete asm. is WD21X802 if the entire pump needs to be replaced due to leakage the part # is WD26X10013 they can be purchased from your local appliance parts store or online at

I hope this helps,

We have a Haier dishwasher and the capacitor burned out. The mahcines are sold at Argos and Comet but I can't source a replacment part which seems kind of crazy. It is out of Warranty and comet can't...

Make, model, serial number of your unit is ... ? I have dealt with capacitors for over 50 years, so I know what I'm doing. But there is no such thing as a five MICROVOLT capacitor, which is what 5uv means to a scientist like myself! Did you mean five micro FARAD, which should be expressed 5uF? But the voltage rating is critical, and the physical size is critical and the temperature rating is critical and the lead diameter is critical and the lead spacing is critical and the style (axial lead versus radial lead) is critical.
