Door Latch does not open door

After a load is completed, the door latch lever fails to release the locked door. Door will open reluctantly if hard lateral pressure is applied to left side of door.

I threw caution to the winds and removed the outer panel of the appliance. The plastic latching handle practically fell out--it was broken. Called all local parts suppliers--none had any parts in stock for this dishwasher. Called the manufacturer, who had a part listed on his computer at a distant location. Ordered it, paid for it, and was assured the part would be received within 2 days. Incidentally, you can't order just a replacement latching handle. It is included as part of a component.

My dishwasher runs but door is in locked position. it will now run with door open and the door wont close/lock


It sounds like your door latch got tripped into the closed position (even though your door is open). You MIGHT be able to use a screwdriver or some tool to be able to pull the latch lever back out to the open position, but it might also be necessary to take the door apart to get to the latch to be able to reset it. The real problem is that if it happened before, it will probably happen again. So the real solution is to replace the latch assembly.

Kitchenaid dishwasher KUDS30IXBL door locked open, will not close


There should be a type of hook inside the hole where the door latches to the machine. Hold the handle up and rotate the hook latch so the open side is pointing towards the machine. The click you heard was the latch that holds the door closed moving to the closed position when the door was open, and it needs to be in the release position.

The door lock is locked and now the door will not shut.


Make sure the power is off to the dishwasher at the breaker panel and using a
pencil or some small stick, insert it in the latch on the door and depress the
lever mechanism. This should release the door latch and allow you to move
the handle back to the proper position.

Broken maytag door latch assembly Maytag quiet series 300: the latch is not working, door is closed and cannot open, seems something snapped inside, how can I open the door ? and change the broken part ?


To open this latch, the handle works as a lever to push inward when you push up on the handle. If your handle if broken, it has probably ceased to work as a lever (the pivot pins have likely broken). You want to push in on the handle to open the latch, ideally toward the bottom of the handle opening. Once you get the latch open, you'll likely want to order a replacement (here is one source : http://www.repairclinic.com/PartDetail/Door-Latch/W10130694/1266678 ). Remember to turn off the power to the dishwasher, and you'll need a star head driver to remove the screws from the inside of the door to access and replace the latch.

Dishwasher door latch


sounds as if your door latch/handle is broken internally.your dishwasher is installed with 2 screws to theunderside of your countertop. its tricky but youll have to remove them (adjusting to leveling legs down will give you more room to get some kinda a phillips head bit in ther to remove the screws), once out slide the d/w foward and remove the strike plate door will open at least get your dishes out
