Hi and welcome to FixYa,

Initially, pls check that the door locks fully and is square. Try opening and closing a few times and determine if you can hear an audible click when the door latch catches. In some other versions, there is a reset button near the rubber grommet for the AC cord. Should it require further check, then

Good luck and Thank you for using FixYa. Happy Holidays.

    Looks like some parts were truncated or failed to appear.

    "Should it require further check, then pls open the bottom/kick panel. Normally, there would be a tech sheet and in most instances an electrical diagram. This would help you in tracing electrical power flow and determine at which point it is missing."

How to replace door springs

There is a service bulletin on the spring and connector(the cord that connects the spring to the door)The spring for the hinges part number is 4970ED4004G. You will need to change the connector assembly for each hinge (plastic colored black at each end of the cord instead of white) and that part number is 4933DD3001B. I use a heavy coat hanger with a hook bent at the end. At the other end where I hold it, I've bent the remaining length of the hanger into a handle of sorts. This gizmo is about 1.5 feet long. Release as much tension from the springs as possible by closing the door. Using a headlamp, remove the kick panel and locate where the springs are attached to the lower frame. Now, using the coat hanger, hook the end of the spring that is attached to the cord. Pull firmly against the spring tension with one hand and unhook the spring from the cord with the other. Do this on both sides. Reach underneath and remove the springs and replace them with the new versions, hooked in same place as the old ones. Replace the cords with the black upgraded versions and reverse the above procedure. You shouldn't have to remove the washer from the counter to do this. Just take your time and don't get frustrated--I do this all the time, you *don't*. The hardest part is trying to hold the spring forward enough to latch the cord connector onto the hinge. That's where having that coat hanger is a blessing! Otherwise, you're gonna have to pull the dishwasher out of the counter and that can be a real pill. Good luck and I hope I helped you!

This dishwasher,was installed without being secured,so it slides in and out,with little or no effort. The instructions say to install screws in the top and bottom, or buy side mounts. My question is : How...

Need more info ! hard to answer w/o a photo or even knowing you cabnet or countertop material . If you have a bit of a recess,or can create one, you may be able to go to most any home improvement store and buy common corner or "L" shaped small metal brackets. Very common and in many sizes,Pre-drilled/holes or holes already in them, very inexpensive.

The gasket around the machine door that keeps the water in cannot be compromised by having anything across any part of it`s surface when door is open or closed. The door will hide the brackets when closed if placed properly. The trick is determining how much surface area you have to work with around the gasket/door seal , to the cabinet sides or countertop bottom .This distance determines what size "L" brackets to use.

Slide the machine to where you want it , if it goes to deep into /under the counter or towards the back wall, put pressure treated scrap lumber behind the machine legs on the floor till it`s out to where you like it and the door opens and closes easily. (proper recess) If the cabnets on each side are wood , measure from the gasket to the side of the cabnet.

Is it a tight fit or a little space between the cabnet sides and machine face behind door area? Buy "L" brackets that will screw to the cabnets , cover the gap, but wont touch the door gasket .while resting tightly on the machine face behind door area. The brakets can alway`s be trimmed with a hacksaw or cut off wheel . Get flat head self tapping screws to mount the brackets to the wood cabnet sides. If possible, you may be able to mount to the outside front of the machine, behind the machine door, but outside the door gasket area/ diameter as well . It would give you extra strength but not 100% needed.

You may need to drill small "starter" holes smaller than the self tap thread diameter that are on the screws you puchased , to start the screws in the wood , metal , plastic , ect. Before you drill or mount , do a bracket placement trial run by using tape to hold them where you think they fit/work best . Again make sure the door opens, closes and hides the brackets . The higher up from the floor (closest to the countertop) the brackets are used , the more secure the machine will be ! It won`t flop on it`s face when you open the door to load it or put weight on the opened door.

You can also bring a printed copy of this to your choice of local home improvement store. Matching brackets to the right screws , ect , ect, is easier for them If they understand what you are doing and you find the right employee.

Hope it helped you ! Good Luck !

Kenmore elite dishwasher, less than 1 yr old. Wont drain. I have pressed ''Drain'' on the keypad, motor/pump runs but no drainage. If blocked, where? Can I clear it without having to dismantle and remove...

take a shop vac and attach it to the ond of the drain hose to remove the water and if you are checking the drain pump then it has to be pulled out from under the cabinet.
if the unit is less than a year old just set it up for service it will not cost you anything

KitchenAid dishwasher allows water to drain while washing

Your dishwasher is siphoning the water out. The drain hose should turn upward, nearly to the bottom side of the counter top, before it attaches to the drain or disposal. If it has an independant drain it still needs the rise and also needs an air break to stop the siphoning.

Fisher & paykel trips the electric sockets

does it trip power as soon as its plugged in.drain hose may have gotten kinked behind drawer and broke leaking on to power board behind lower drawer.

GE Profile Dishwasher (5 years old); Leaving residue on dishes

In my case the counter mounted breather for the drain tube was being restricted ... finally to the point it would not drain the tub at all. I disassembled the above counter drain assembly and cleaned it out as it wass completely blocked and things work very well again. I would suggest this foirst as it is an easy task and is done 'above the counter'.
I then ran 2 cups of CLR with wash cycle ... no dishes to clean out the rest of the washer as on dissaembly of the internals to diagnose they were and very scummed up with a hard white crusty substance that was completely blocking some of the drain sump performations.

GE Triton Dishwasher will not drain they water after it's cycle...thoughts?

Cut off the power at the breaker for 5 minutes and then turn it on and see if the system resets!
The machine was in your home 3 years , and used for more than that by someone else! I can tell you by the model that its at least 10 years old!
appliances more than 9 years old cost you money to run and fix! Throw it out and do not put good money into bad!

The new ones no matter how inexpensive will wash better and cost you a hell of a lot less to operate. They are so much more energy efficient today that they pay for them selves in a couple of years! With a new machine watch your water and power bill go down!!!
Other wise you need hands on service!
if you got the money do it new!

Bless You!

Maytag Dishwasher Model DWU9200BAB

Do you have an air gap between the disposal and the dishwasher? If not required raise the hose and as high as you can. It must be above the water level in the sink. Try attaching it to the underside of the counter. At some point the hose should be above 32 inches. It the problem is with the dishwasher itself. Don't fix, replace. They are not really designed to last over 10 years. The new ones , especially in the last year or two are a BIG improvement over any older one. So quiet you can't tell they are even running, they clean so much better and are much more energy efficient. Stainless steel interiors are just a fad. The plastic tubs are actually less likely to leak and are by there nature more quiet.
