There are a few problems that can occur with the diswasher door assembly. These usually involve the latching mechanism, the door seal, the counterbalance spring assembly or the hinges. 1) The door latch plate can occasionally become out of alignment. Some door latch plates are adjustable, some aren't. If yours is adjustable, try loosening the retaining screws and repositioning the plate. It's trial-and-error, so have a lot of patience. If this doesn't work, then the latch needs replacing.
2) A new dishwasher or a newly installed door seal can be difficult to close for a while until the seal softens and compresses over time. You can try adjusting the latch, if possible.
3) If the door feels unusually heavy, there could be a problem with the counterbalance spring assembly. These counterbalance assemblies allow the door to open and close easier and are held by two springs. On some dishwasher models, holes are positioned in line so you can re-tension the springs by moving the spring hooks to other tensioning holes. If any of these springs break, they will need to be replaced as a pair.
4) The door hinges might be bent. They can seldom be adequately fixed and should be replaced.
hope this helps

I have a Kelvinator dishwasher,KD14ss, the door does not close ,ther is nothing in the way of the door ??


Hi Bets, It could be that the dishwasher door is hitting the installation cabinet or the screws holding it in place. Check to be sure the door is not hitting the cabinet or screws under the counter. Many times a screw may come loose and get in the way of the dishwasher door. If this happens the dishwasher door cannot close. Simply tighten the screw back into place and test to be sure the dishwasher door closes properly.

The dishwasher door hinges pivots on the bottom of the dishwasher frame. It holds the dishwasher door on and the pivoting allows the dishwasher door to open and close. If the dishwasher door hinges are bent or loose then the door cannot close properly. Replace the dishwasher door hinges if you find them to be bent or damaged.

Hope these will help.

I start the dishwasher and it does nothing and lights do not turn on either


When your dishwasher won't start, it could be a problem with your electrical panel or the door might not be closing properly.

Check your household electrical panel for a tripped breaker or blown fuse. Also check to make sure the door latches closed properly.

For additional troubleshooting steps you can take and things you can do, read Dishwasher won't start for more suggestions. I hope this helps!

Doesn't close tight enough to start


It sounds like your door-closed sensor (a microswitch) is out-of-adjustment. If you can locate this sensor, try gluing a tiny piece of plastic or wood to it. This will do the same thing as pushing really ******* the door and allow your dishwasher to operate normally.

The door won't close completely


Hi, Check for the following whenever you have problems in door
Latch: The latch on many dishwashers is adjustable. If your door is easy to close but difficult to latch, adjust the latch to let the door close more easily. If you can't see any way to adjust the latch, yours may be fixed in a certain position. Check for other reasons for the latching problem. If the latch has worn out in a way that makes it impossible for you to close the door properly, you probably need to replace the latch.
Springs Your dishwasher has two springs that counterbalance the weight of the door. If either or both of these are broken, the door feels quite heavy and you need to replace both springs.
Hinges The hinges are important to the door closing properly. If they're bent or deformed, you probably need to replace them. Once bent, only rarely can they be straightened well enough.
Door seal If your dishwasher is new--or if you have just replaced a door seal--the door may be difficult to latch for a week or two. If the tightness persists, though, try adjusting the latch, if it's adjustable. If it's not adjustable, there's probably nothing you can do immediately. But try running the dishwasher on the highest heat cycle to help the seal conform to the door. Otherwise, the seal should compress over time.

Door leaking


According to manufacturers, the DW may leak for three reasons:

1. Door not closed properly. Be sure the door closes and the door gasket is not damaged. Inspect the gasket closely, sometimes silverware damages it.

2. Use the appropriate Dishwasher soap. Don't use regular soap. If the dwsoap is too old, replace it.

3. Water sensor not working and the dw is overfilling. Be sure the float switch is working properly and nothing obstructs it.

Door won't close wont lock closed


Check the following if you have problem with your doors:

1)The latch on many dishwashers is adjustable. If your door is easy to close but difficult to latch, adjust the latch to let the door close more easily. If you can't see any way to adjust the latch, yours may be fixed in a certain position. Check for other reasons for the latching problem.
If the latch has worn out in a way that makes it impossible for you to close the door properly, you probably need to replace the latch.


2)Your dishwasher has two springs that counterbalance the weight of the door. If either or both of these are broken, the door feels quite heavy and you need to replace both springs.


3)The hinges are important to the door closing properly. If they're bent or deformed, you probably need to replace them. Once bent, only rarely can they be straightened well enough.


4)If your dishwasher is new or if you have just replaced a door seal the door may be difficult to latch for a week or two. If the tightness persists, though, try adjusting the latch, if it's adjustable. If it's not adjustable, there's probably nothing you can do immediately. But try running the dishwasher on the highest heat cycle to help the seal conform to the door. Otherwise, the seal should compress over time.
