Posted by on

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.

Why door will not stay closed


Many of the latches have a tooth shaped catch. If the tooth part is broken off the latch won't catch.

I think you will find it is either faulty door switches or a misaligned door catch.

Door catch broken - door will not close. no sign of a broken piece. There was a bang and the catch just doesn't hold at all. door swings open


Door catches.

One of the latches has broken off and is not lifting the other latch clear of the housing. Remove from any power source, remove the cover of the cabinet. Slacken off the clamp mechanism and ease the clamp over the guide to allow the door to open. When a new door lever is in place, the door may be easily adjusted by slackening off the screws that clamp the door catch/actuators in place whilst holding the door closed and then tightening the screws. The rear of the door may be adjusted by slackening the lower door hinge screws and adjusting as required.
I hope that helps.



Door switches

If one of the door interlock switches is not switching properly, that can cause the turntable/light to come on even though the "Starts" button has not been depressed due to the wiring of the switches.
Check for faulty door switches and/or contaminated actuators.
I hope that helps.

sounds like the door catch is loose,this is what holds the door shut,when the clothes are spinning they hit the door opening it enough to reset the door switch,there's a metal or plastic tab that goes into the catch,easy to install and part is cheap money

Rear trunk door on '03 Audi A4 Avant does not properly secure.


the struts would have no effect on the catch at all. chances are the floor catch has moved inwards a little, re adjust to fit correctly/watertight.

I have a 2000 windstar...the left sliding door


The door is not catching to lock the door shut. Find where it is not catching and see if theres a blockage or if something is broken.

Hotpoint aquarius 1000wm 20 I have to bash front door to start


I do not think it is the door lock that is faulty, more likely to be a weak or broken door spring or broken door catch.
I would replace these first,and then if it is still the same, then replace the door lock.
To replace the spring and or handle catch, undo all the screws that secure the 2 halves of the door, and prize apart the 2 halves,
Replace the spring and catch, reassemble the door.
Plz rate my solution.
Thanks.

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?

Washing machine door sensor


I must differ with you. This machine does have a computer control card located within the timer base assy. Thee 5 beeps are a response from the computer that informs of a faulty signal between the computer and the door sensor
