Re: Door Problem

There are set springs for the adjustment of the doors on the Bosch dishwashers. they are colour coded for different applications. They are accessed by laying the machine on its back and pulling the springs out of the base. first you will need to check that the nylon lines which attach the springs to the lower part of the door mechanisms are in place and this can also be done while the machine is on its back. or by first removing the side panels to access the door hinge mechanisms. If you have a custom cabinet panel on your machine it may be too heavy for the springs and new springs will have to be installed.

Pull the dishwasher out. You may see the mechanism and possibly broken spring or other part. (possible it's just come apart. You may need to remove side panels to see this mechanism for the door (counter balance) .

I own a Bosch home Dishwasher - Model SGV53E03GB-74 - where the wash tablet discharge cavity opens in the wash cycle but doesn't allow the tablet to drop, so the wash is ineffective and needs

Sounds like the dispenser door isn't opening. If it isn't being blocked by dishes, the dispenser door spring might be broken, the dispenser release solenoid could be faulty, or not getting power from the control panel. While you're waiting for it to get fixed, you can just put the detergent in the bottom of the dishwasher and run it on normal cycle. It also possible the dispenser door isn't opening wide enough for the puck to fall out. Make sure the door opens freely under it's own spring assist.

Door drops down suddenly when opened

Your spring is hooked onto a cable to help ease the door down. It must have come loose. You'll have to open the door panel and panel under the dishwasher... and possibly have to pull the whole thing out to find the problem... only then can you tell if something is bent or broke.

Door falls open

The cables that are connected to the springs are broke, atleast one anyway. You'll need your model number off the machine to get them from a parts dealer. once you have them, pull the machine out a little ways and they install on the left and right side lower area.

KitchenAid KUDI10FL dishwasher- The door spring system broke and I repaired it, but now all of the sudden the dishwasher will not start. The door may have been dropped a couple of time before the spring...

Hi- It is possible that the door latch is not completely engaging. If the door dropped the hinges may have bent a little thus preventing a good contact with door switch. Try pressing and holding the door shut, hard, and pressing start. If that works then replace the latch assembly. It is also possible the membrane switch got rattled with the door falling, or a wire is grounding out somewhere. Hopefully it is just the latch. Hope this helps, good luck.

Kitchaide Dishwash Door

There is normally 2 heavy springs & cables that control the "falling" of the door located in the bottom of the machine or it the door itself. Sounds like one (or both) have snapped.
