Getting the door inner panel off

Thank you Catriver for your quick response. I removed all the screws from the inner panel and was able to lift it off except for the vent in the upper left-hand corner, that seems to still be holding the panel on. How does it come off to release the panel?

Re: getting the door inner panel off

Should be a slot in the vent, use a flat blade screw driver and turn it about a quarter until it back.

How to replace front metal panel

Usually (in most Whirlpool models), if you open the door and look, you will see 8 to 10 screws around the perimiter of the door. Remove those, and the outer door panel will come loose from the inner panel. Now just lift the door up a little bit (an inch) to remove it from the 2 catches at the bottom, and you should be able to remove the outer door panel.

Loose handle

Open the door and loosen the self threading screws around the sides of the inner door panel. Once this has been achieved lift the inner panel up so that you can access the door handle screws. Tighten these fasteners and reassemble the door panel.

The door on my machine won't shut?


You will need to adjust the dishwasher door latch to fix the door if it will not close. The door latch can come out of alignment from use. Adjusting the latch assembly is a straight forward process on most models of dishwashers. First, remove the securing fasteners for the inner door panel. It is a good idea not to remove the inner door panel completely, just enough that you can access the door latch assembly.

Turn the dishwasher circuit breaker off inside your home electrical panel. Open and close the door and watch where the strike plate makes contact with the door. The strike plate is usually on the front top center of the dishwasher. If the strike plate is out of alignment, it will hit the inside of the door.

Pull the dishwasher out of the counter enough that you can access the strike plate securing Torx screw. You may need to open your dishwasher door and remove the two screws that secure the dishwasher mounting bracket to the bottom of the counter with a Phillips-head screwdriver to pull the dishwasher away from the counter.

Loosen the Torx screw that secures the strike plate to the washer tub with a Torx driver. Adjust the strike plate so the plate will engage the door latch. Retighten the Torx screw and push the dishwasher back under the counter. Secure the brackets to the counter if your dishwasher uses retaining brackets.

Adjust Door Latch

Open the dishwasher door and remove the Torx screws securing the inner door panel to the outer door panel with a Torx driver. The retaining screws are usually around the side edge and top edge of the dishwasher door.

Lift the inner door panel enough that you can loosen the two securing bolts on the door latch with a wrench. You only need to loosen the bolts, not remove them.

Carefully raise the dishwasher door to align the door latch with the strike plate. Hold the door latch with your finger tips when you align the latch. Lower the door and tighten the door latch securing bolts.

Install the inner door panel retaining screws and tighten all screws with the Torx driver. Close the dishwasher door and turn on the circuit breaker.

8 yr old GU1200 stopped mid cycle - no apparent reason - no response to buttons - appears dead?

These dishwashers have a thermal fuse in the control panel. If it overheats for some reason (sometimes a bad connection on the fuse itself causes that)it will turn whole machine off.
  1. Disconnect power to dishwasher. Remove screws holding the control panel from the side of the inner door. Remove control panel. If it does not come off - remove all screws on the inner side of the door and separate the inner and outer door.
  2. Fuse is on the right side on top of the control board. it usually has tan or black or yellow wires to it. Disconnect wires and check fuse for continuity. if none - replace fuse. Here is your part
Good luck

Remove the door

The outer door panel makes it easier to get to the bottom. Open the door and remove the screws from the inner liner staring from the bottom on each side working your way up. You will stop just short of the top 2. Have a brace under the panel so it does not fall on your foot. Once the screws are out the panel lifts off.

Getting to the control panel

The outer user interface / touchpad stays in place. it can be removed only after removing the electronic machine relay board. The relay board is accessed from the inside of the door. You need to separate the inner door panel from the outer door panel. After removing the screws from around the inside of the door, the inner panel should lift up and away from the outer panel. The plastic cover should just clip on. you may need to use a flat screwdriver to release one or more of the clips. After that you'll be able to see any screws or clips holding the relay board in place.

Power going to dishwasher but nothing happens??

Gina, you probably blew a thermal fuse that sits on the control board. Easy fix. Have your husband first check the wiring to the dishwasher. Remove the toe panel and make sure the wire nut connections are good. If that is ok, he will have to remove the inner door screws to get to the control board. Lift out the inner door. Remove the control board cover, it just snaps off. He will see the thermal fuse on the upper right side. I will attach a photo of what it looks back
