Dishwasher tils when door is open because the bracket is roken

My dishwasher (Viking DFUD042) tilts when the door is open because it wasn't installed properly. Because it was only attached to the cabinet with 1 screw, the bracket broke and now nothing is holding it to the cabinet. How do I get a replacement bracket? Is the bracket to attach the dishwasher to the cabinet part of the side trim kit?

There is now a universal dishwasher bracket for just this problem called E-Z DISHWASHER BRACKET. It is available through Braxton-Bragg or ask for it at a local granite fabricator. It is very simple to use.

That dishwasher can be mounted on the sides or on the top. i would use to top mounting brackets if the side brackets are damaged. if the countertop is granite you can go to lowes or home depot and buy a thin strip of board then glue that under the counter so that you have something to screw into

My Viking DFUD042 is stuck in drain cycle while fresh water is entering the dishwasher through the grid on the right side. The pump is working continuously and it only stops after I turn off the power. ...


Hi, this could be a bad control board or a bad motor. It uses the same motor to wash as to drain. It just changes the direction of the motor in order to switch from drain to wash.
You'll need to run a cycle and you will need a multimeter to check which one needs to be replaced. Remove the kick panel and check the grey wire to the ground wire when it should be washing. If you have 120 volts, you need to order and replace your control board. Otherwise, if you don't have power and it's still draining, you need to order and replace the motor.

if you open the kick plate, you'll see the pan below the motor and check for leaks. The leaks will trigger the sensor to pump water out. Once you dry out the pan, the pump motor will stop and you should be able to reset the program.

It sounds like one of two things: Inside the door are simple micro switches on the latch assembly it could be that one of these is not making a good contact or is misaligned. Secondly the latch on the top of the dishwasher could be loose meaning that it is not engaging the latch mechanism inside the door itself. Hope this helps. Let me know if you get anywhere with that!
