Depending on model and configuration of hinge assembly it is possible. BUT I would side with keeping the door open to save energy on the electric drying option! Also, I believe GE hinge assemblies actually relax the spring when fully open-so no strain would be on spring and cause to stretch. (This would take quite awhile anyway) Tell Hubby to Chill....;)
Reva Daniel, I have actually had this happen to my Frigidaire Pro Series d/w. We have put some tall stemware in the upper rack and this was blocking the rotation of the top arm it actually unscrewed the nut that holds it on. So here is how I have fixed it. 1. Locate the 3 pieces (the nut), (the arm) and (the white plastic connecting piece). the white piece is very small it will most likely be on the very bottom of the dishwasher.2. The small white plastic piece sits inside of the nut and protrudes through the nut and snaps into the arm.3. take the 3 assembled pieces and tighten back on to the top of the wash tub. be patient when tightening this ,it is easy to cross thread. That is all there is to it. if some of the parts are damaged go to partselect.com Be sure you have your model # (its on the inside right side just as you open the door.) Hope this Helps Joe ConnollySealsonetops@gmail.com
There is most likely a problem with one of the door switches. Right where the door latches to the tub there is a small white plunger in the opening of the door which gets pushed down to trip two switches within the door. Disconnect power to the dishwasher and take out the phillips head screws holding the inner and outer door panels together. Check out the plastic cover over the door switches to make sure it has not warped due to heat. The cover is held on by four plastic tabs. The white plunger has a spring on the bottom of it, so watch out for it so you won't lose it. The flat side of the white plunger faces the dishwasher's tub.
Just did this myself .Need the right star screw driver to remove 11 screws holding the door inner liner then you can access the handle latch assembly. You pull off the 2 wire connectors to the switchs that are part of the assembly. Slip connectors onto new assembly.Position the handle part thru the door and re attach inner liner. 2 of the inner liner top screws also hold the assembly in place.Unfortunely , this didn't solve my problem of the dishwasher not turning on.
I had the same problem with my QS 100. I disconnected power first via the breaker then removed the 11 screws. I couldn't loosen the two electrical connections, but the door pulled far enough away to inspect the handle mechanism. The plastic handle fell out of whole handle assembly rather easily because two molded plastic pins protuding from either side had broken off and were loose inside. There was also a pair of molded plastic v-shaped forks right on the panel to hold the handle assembly and these were damaged but they just to seem to act as guides only (as the handle assembly is held in by two of the screws that were removed). Replacing the v-shaped forks would require a whole new door which I am NOT doing. It looks like I can a replacement handle in the same color with new pins (I am reading they may now be metal) for about ##15. Pretty easy to disassemble and inspect, only about 15 minutes.
TURN OFF POWER TO UNIT. Open door, remove all torq screws from door panel, separate inner and outer door panel. latch assy is able to be removed, place black wire connector and white white connector back respectively, place inner part of door back and replace the torq screws. Then turn power back on for unit.
check the two switches under the inside cover of the door. there are two switches under the flimsy metal switch actuator, one switch has a black wire in both ends the other switch should have two white or white/red strip wires on one end and one white or white/red wire on the other end. the black wire is power the white wire is your neutral. both switches should have a button in the middle that is pushed in by the flimsy metal switch actuator when you lock the door shut. i had to replace the switch for my neutral when mine quit working. you can remove this switch and get the part number off of it. you can look it up on line or call a small appliance repair store to see if they have the part or can order it for you. remember to unplug the dishwasher before you remove the the inside cover of the door. hope this helps.
