1 Suggested Answer

SOURCE: Ariston dish washer door will not shut properly.

Hello,
Check that something has not got wedged behind the top basket stopping it closing fully.If that is ok what can happen is that if there is something causing the door not closing fully ,when you try to close door to do a wash instead of the little hook actuator in the door switch fully engaging with the clasp on the body of unit,it closes down before it engages.It is like a finger hooking over say the top of your trousers.If you turn power off and get 2 small screwdrivers and carefully put them either side of the hook on door then try to bring it back to its open position.

Hope this helps.

How do I fix my dishwasher when the door catch doesn't seem to be catching


Sometimes there is adjustment to make it latch. It may be that the catch itself is broken. If you can't see anything obvious, call in a service engineer.

Hi,
Lowes is right regarding the parts needed.

First check the strike part is ok - that's on the body of the machine not the door.

Unplug the machine.

Remove the front door panel by removing the visible screws on the door.
Check the door catch for broken parts, and order those required before using again,
It is a fairly easy fix once you've identified the part required.

I think you can fix this yourself if you can see the latch itself. There should be some screws at or near the latch that can be removed. this would allow you to physically get to the latch and check it out. It may be that the latch is broken or loose OR it may be where the latches "catches" that could be the problem also. You are probably looking at an hour's work.

Door won't shut


Is there sufficient spring reaction? Spring weak or broken? Has latch or catch moved? Is there adjustment on either? Is there debris stopping mechanism from working? Has door dropped?

Matsui MF145 beeping continuously


You might want to check the salt and rinse levels on your dishwasher.
Ours was doing the exact same thing and we refilled the dishwasher salt and it worked again. Unscrew the plastic thing on the bottom of the dishwasher and fill it up with about 1 kilo of dishwasher salt, water will flow out when you do this and you can put at least 2 kilos in.
Hope that helps xxx

How to replace door lock
