How can I buy a replacement door for a 302 dishlex ?


Hi there,

I was looking for the same thing myself for our Dishlex 300 a few months back. Our problem was 1/ the handle wasn\'t releasing the door catch,

also 2/ the micro switch in the catch wasn\'t getting pressed down properly to tell the machine the door was closed, so the dishwasher wouldn\'t start. Both problems were related to the plastic ramp inside the door being worn where the tongue of the catch goes in.



We couldn\'t find one in NZ, so I made a tapered flat piece of wood to push the catch down between the main body and the door whenever we want to open it.

For the switch problem it was a bit harder - I opened up the plastic box at the top front of the machine (with the power off of course) and built up the plastic ramp that triggers the switch, using glue and then a file to shape it after the glue hardened.



I hope this is helpful.

Cheers.

Plastic tabs holding circuit board cage prevents it from being removed from lid.


If you are CAREFUL you may be able to just pry each one with a small flat tipped screwdriver. If, by chance you break one or more, don't fret, you can buy plastic right angle corner pieces or cut sections from a strip of right angle plastic. Glue each one with Gorilla glue (tape each piece in place till dry), then apply the glue to the part that will be attached to the circuit board. Again tape the connections until dry. Voila...and you don't have to worry about damaging the circuit board or shorting it out! Have fun!

My GE dishwasher's door is stuck shut ~ I'm assuming a broken latch. I was told to fix the latch, the dishwasher has to be taken out from under the counter top (in order to get the door open). My...


Well I'll try to help you get this opened. I don't know how much space you have at the top side edge of the dishwasher. You need a long stiff rod like a metal clothes hanger straightened so it can reach from the side to a little past the dishwasher middle. You need to push it in between the door top and the dishwasher body up at the latch area. What holds the door closed is a flat metal piece with a plastic hook on the end facing down towards the floor. You need to try and get the rod under the metal piece and lift it slightly, hopefully to unhook the the door. If you can't do that, the only alternative is to pull hard on the door handle and you should be able to break the plastic part of the latch which will then have to be replaced. The part that should break is the top hook which would be an easy replacement, but I can't be sure thats all the damage to the latch that will happen. It may do some damage to the part inside the door also. This is last resort. I'll try to attach a parts breakdown of the tub so you can see the latch hook. Look at item #50

WD28X10103: how do i remove the old one and install the new one?


Remove the dishwasher. Pull back the insulation and plastic from the top. You will find 2 screws right on top that you remove. Ours were enbeded in goo so have some acetone on hand to clean up yours tools.

The top drawer is binding.. it is extremely hard to close?


Either the drawer seal is damaged (top edge of housing from inside) or the drawer has come off the rails.

Remove the front cover (pull out 2 plastic pins on each side) and pull the drawer out. Inspect if it is still on rails and also check the seal. You should be able to push it back a little with your fingers. If hard or rigid, then seal mechanism needs fixing.

Kenmore dishwasher not cleaning properly


Look in the inside for any screen that would be easily removed, some dishwashers have a self cleaning filter so you may not find it. I have a lot of other tips for you if your dishwasher is not cleaning so check it out.

AEG Favorit 40650 dishwasher is not heating the water or drying the dishes.


Remove the controller from the top of the door. Extract the main PCB from the plastic case. You will probably see a burn mark on the inside of the case adjacent to the relay on the back of the PCB. Examine the back of the PCB for burn marks around the relay pins. Resolder the relay and any damaged track.

Smeg Dishwasher button broken


I am trying to fix the same problem. There is a clear plastic frame around the controller that has small plastic arms that the button pushes against. You will find that it has broken off and fallen inside the door. I managed a temporary fix by unscrewing the door panels finding the buts. Remove the clear frame it clips to the controller once you unscrew it from inside the door. I then used super glue to glue it back together. Fix is temporary only lasted 3 weeks and broke again. What you need to do is find a replacement clear frame.

Mouse inside dishwasher


I have an MDBH945AWW.
I FIXED IT! They are getting in thru the water inlet/vent in the lower bottom left of the dishwasher. Here's how we fixed it:
1. Turn off water to machine if possible. Open the door, remove screws on side and top that hold dishwasher in place. Pull the dishwasher out from under the counter. Remove racks from inside.
2. Remove the sound insulation blanket. Mine was a mouse nest so I threw the thing out. Not going to replace it as the noise increase is minimal.
3. On the left side of the tub outside there is a tube that comes from under and is hooked to a small plastic box with an open top. THIS is the point of entry!
4. Poke a long screwdriver or something down into the box and pop the plastic tension prongs free. Reach into the dishwasher and remove the circular plastic grill.
5. Twist the plastic box to the right or left until the tabs line up and it will pop out of the side of the tub. Remove the tube from the box. The box should now be free.
6. Cut a square of 1/4 hardware mesh cloth (flexible metal grid) and cut a hole to fit over the nipple for the tube. Put mesh over the top of the box, secure in place with really heavy duty tape. Something strong like Gorilla Tape or even metal tape for ducts.... conventional duct tape will not hold after a year or so. I taped all around the edges and sealed it down only leaving the top with the mesh exposed.
7. Put the tube back on and then reinstall the box and then the grill.
8. Take this time to SUPER CLEAN the area under and around the dishwasher. Even the outside of the washer. Mice return to the smell of their poop.
9. Put the washer back in and don't forget the screws as well as turning the water back on.

$5 fix or a $500 new machine... you choose!

Oh yeah, and I'm a girl too...
:D
