Well everyone I've seen( i assume you mean the door latch) has 2 terminals, one on each side, that are simple post tabs. The wire has the female terminal and the latch is a male. It simply slides on and off. HOWEVER, this is often difficult especially on an older washer. Over time they corrode together and this makes it difficult to remove them. After doing so you may need to replace the female terminals as they may come apart if too badly corrode. I can only suggest slow steady pull pressure until they come apart. I would also suggest using pliers, preferably needle-nose, to grasp the female(wire end) to pull with. Hope this helps.
If your dishwasher
door is not closing properly or has developed a leak, it may be time to
replace the entire door assembly. Some other signs of a defective door
include sagging, difficulty pulling the door back up into a closed
position and a door that feels heavier as it drops open. Replacing a
dishwasher door is not that hard, but includes several springs and
hinges that must be aligned correctly or the door will not fit
correctly in the opening.
the dishwasher and shut off the water before attempting to remove any
parts. If you cannot reach the electrical outlet, you can turn off the
breaker switch that controls the electricity for the kitchen. Remove
the drain hose that runs from the dishwasher unit to the sink drain.
the dishwasher out from the cabinet until you have clear access to the
side of the unit. Ask a friend for help with this part if the unit is
too heavy for you to slide out without straining your back.
your dishwasher's owner's manual to find out exactly how the outer door
panels are removed. Some models have a two-panel door where the control
panel must be removed before the lower panel will come off. Otherwise,
the door panel should be one solid piece or a two-piece assembly that
allows the lower section to be removed separately to access the springs
the springs at the bottom of the door. Depending on the type of
dishwasher you have, there may be a tension adjustment dial or simply a
series of holes at different distances from the edge of the unit. If
you have a tension controller, adjust it to a loose setting to make it
easier to remove the door springs. Unhook the door springs from the
hinge plate. Some dishwashers
may have a cable and pulley system attached to the door springs. Check
your owner's manual for removal instructions if this is the case with
pliers to gently pull back on the door hinge plate's tab until the slot
opens for the hinge pin to come out. Take out the screws holding the
door hinge plate onto the front of the door panel. Hold onto the door
assembly while gradually opening the door. Once the door drops down,
you should be able to remove it by sliding the door off the hinge pinAlways wear safety glasses when working with the springs and hinges
involved with a dishwasher door assembly. These items can fly off at
high speed and cause serious injury to the eye.
chek whether there is any hinge tht is loose on the side of the door or a catch tht u can sqeeze ,try pulling on door while trying to trip release.The only other suggestion,which I have had to do is YANK the door open.You will break the catch but it is easily replaced.
If the door is sprung in a manner that one side is flush and not other then most likely the hinge has been bent outward by the weight placed on it.the best solution would be to replace hinge,the spring only adjusts the tension for door closing. There is a slight possibility that either the frame or the door has bent in this manner so before buying hinge check frame and door for damage,after doing repair would suggest adjusting front legs of unit to raise front up a bit to ensure leaking wont continue
Your question is: While trying to remove the built in dishwasher (every so slightly), the door at one of the bottom hinges(?) seemed to pop and one side of the door will not "pop" back into place. How to you reinstall the door so that it will close and seal properly?
You'll have to remove the d/w about 6 inches to gain access to the hinge. It should be just a mater of putting it back in place.
