Question about Gaggenau GI936-760 Dishwasher

1 Answer

Door handle The doorhandle on my dishwasher is loose. I need to remove the door panel to tighten the handle. There are three screws along the inside, which look like they might need to be removed to access the outer panel. However, the screw is similar to a phillips head, but it isn't. First - do I need to remove these screws to remove the front panel? Second, if so, what kind of screw is this and what kind of screwdriver is needed? Thanks Mike47

I have a loose door handle. what tools do I need to repair it and how?

Depends on the brand and type of handle. I'll give you a few general ideas. The first easy one is to look under both ends of the handle for small set screws. If you see them, a small allen wrench should tighten the set screws and the handle. The next type requires the removal of either the inner door panel or outer panel. Some dishwashers will have screws along the inner edge of the door panel. you remove the screws and either the inner panel will come loose or the outer panel will come off (depends on make and model) Once the door is apart you should be able to see the handle screws to tighten. Some doors also have a screw in both bottom corners facing upward that may need removed . Best I can do at this time.

GE dishwasher model GLD5868V15SS handle loose

This model comes with two types of doors. One with a single panel with integrated control on top or a two part door with control unit in front. The handle varies.

If you have a single door panel with handle bar across from right to left then you need to carefully unscrew the back panel screws and free up the front panel. the handle is screwed to the front panel from inside. Once you tighten carefully put the back door panel in and tighten. Take photos along the way to make sure you get back where you started. Also unplug dishwasher before working on it.

If you have a two part door with front control then handle and access to it is different. See diagram on this website for blow up of the panel and location of handle (part 713).

Loose handle

Open the door and loosen the self threading screws around the sides of the inner door panel. Once this has been achieved lift the inner panel up so that you can access the door handle screws. Tighten these fasteners and reassemble the door panel.

Inside door handle

Remove the two screws in the arm rest pocket. Carefully pry around the bottom edge of the upholstered panel to release nylon stud & socket fasteners. Remove triangle trim panel at forward edge of window by prying loose the same fastener in the middle of that panel...lift upwards to remove. Lift the entire panel to unhook the top edge which hooks over the sheetmetal at the bottom of the window opening. The trim around the doorhandle is held in place by three three j-hooks which must be pressed towards the center of the handle to release. The door handle assy simply slides forward about 1/2" before coming loose from the metal in the door. You can buy extra stud & socket assemblies at a chev garage for pennies

Handle coming loose

If you only remove the 4(T20 torx) along the flat edge this will only remove the outer door panel. Start from the top and work down. Also if yours has 2 blocks that fall out, they go on the hinge only 1 way.

GE Monogram ZBD0710 Dishwasher

I was having the same problem with my Monogram dishwasher and oven.  Here's what to do.  You must fully remove the handle from the appliance.  Down the barrel of the standoff is a hex screw that, when tightened with an allen wrench, will draw the standoff tight to the handle again.  There is no need to remove the end caps.
