Door not opening

My dishwasher door will not open, the handle feels as if it is not working the latches. The way it has been built in to my kitchen, I cannot move it out as it seems to have been screwed from the dishwasher into the kitchen unit. I cannot see any screws to take off the front panel only the mechanism for working the cycles. Is there a release catch anywhere else or any other way to get the door open and try and repair this? Thanks for any help...

Tried that, must be too soft!! I found a way to get in, had to ruin my units that the machine was screwed into though. There is a plastic catch on top of the machine with one screw, take out the screw and the plastic clip falls away and lets you open the door. Not a very practical place to put it though, as there is no way to reach it unless the machine is taken out from its location.

Door wont open


I believe your best answer can be found here (ensuring again the power is disconnected before beginning):
http://www.fixya.com/support/t116203-dishwasher_door_latch
I would suggest finding the full model number, comparing to the list at this Sears site, and viewing the "door and latch" manual for your specific model number. This will provide insight on how the door is assembled, and can provide details on what part(s) you might need to order.
Hope this helps.

The handle opener on my my Kitchenaid whisperquiet dishwasher is completely loose and I can't open the dishwasher to remove my clean dishes. What can I do???


The idea is to lift up on the part of the latch that is fixed to the body of the washer. The door part of the latch slides under this peice. If the handle mechanism is broken, it will not depres the door part of the latch to allow it to open. therefore, we have to pickup the latch part fixed to the body.

To get the door open, take a clothes hanger and cut off a 12" peice with a pair of pliers. Bend the last 1.25" at 90 degress angle. Make another bend about 4 " from that to make another 90 degree angle. This will give you leverage. Insert the first bent end between the top of the door and the counter. Rotate it so that the end is facing down. Feel for a metal plate. When you hit the plate with the probe, turn your hanger so that it lifts up the plate and simultaneously pull on the door handle. The door should come open.

Now you have to get the handle repaired, but at least you know how to open the door.

Cannot open the door of the dishwasher.


Hi,
  • 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.

  • 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.

Broken maytag door latch assembly Maytag quiet series 300: the latch is not working, door is closed and cannot open, seems something snapped inside, how can I open the door ? and change the broken part ?


To open this latch, the handle works as a lever to push inward when you push up on the handle. If your handle if broken, it has probably ceased to work as a lever (the pivot pins have likely broken). You want to push in on the handle to open the latch, ideally toward the bottom of the handle opening. Once you get the latch open, you'll likely want to order a replacement (here is one source : http://www.repairclinic.com/PartDetail/Door-Latch/W10130694/1266678 ). Remember to turn off the power to the dishwasher, and you'll need a star head driver to remove the screws from the inside of the door to access and replace the latch.

Cant open the door


Under the unit you can access the leveling mechanism for the legs. Try adjusting the levelers so the unit is lowered. Do so a little at a time and try to keep the unit leveled from left to right as you lower it. This may take tension off of the latch and help you get the door open.

Dishwasher door latch


sounds as if your door latch/handle is broken internally.your dishwasher is installed with 2 screws to theunderside of your countertop. its tricky but youll have to remove them (adjusting to leveling legs down will give you more room to get some kinda a phillips head bit in ther to remove the screws), once out slide the d/w foward and remove the strike plate door will open at least get your dishes out

Dishwasher door latch


I just had this problem (or should I say, finally had the time to deal with it). Google searches revealed different ways to get the door open including repairmen with crowbars (causing replacement of the entire control assembly $$$), having to back out the top screws that hold the dishwasher in place (and to the top of the counter) with pliers, then moving the dishwasher out from the counter.

Nuts to all that.

First things first. Turn OFF the power to the dishwasher.

I wound up on my back first watching how the handle moved and which side seemed to be loose, in my case the right side was moving freely. After first trying to hold the handle in the "down" position with a springhook (to no avail) I wound up biasing the handle to the right (with a screwdriver inserted on the left side of the handle) while moving the handle in the "operate" direction. Suddenly (and without warning) the entire handle assembly moved to the right and created an opening that made it simple to stick a screwdriver up to operate the latch manually.

Four screws later the control panel was out, the offending broken handle assembly was in my hands to discover that they could have easily made the little tabs the hold the handle in place a whole lot sturdier, but let's not go there...

If I had to do the whole thing again it would have taken me less than 5 minutes to open it up I'm sure. Now to simply order the part and install it when it arrives. The best part is we can still run the dishwasher until it gets here!
