Have you checked the latch as well. Make sure the lever lines up with the latch and seats deep enough. No obstructions at the lower hinges as well.

I just purchased a Kenmore dishwasher model 665.1303 and the door will not close. It seems like the mechinism on the door is locked not allowing the latch on the dishwasher to ingage in the lock on the...


Yes, that can happen. That latch is like the latch on your car door. You can trigger it, and then you can't close the door. But on your car, you can reset the latch by pulling the handle; your dishwasher doesn't have a handle, But you might be able to get a thin screwdriver in the latch and pry it back open. But I have found that once this happens, it tends to happen again. The best thing to do is replace the latch. If it's still under warranty, call Sears and arrange for them to send out a service man to fix it.

Dishwasher will not run unless I hold the door shut tightly or slide a knife under the handle to get it to run


As I am sure you already have figured out, your latch mechanism and probably you latch switch are defective. You can look them up and order them from www.searspartdirect.com by entering your model number and then finding your parts on the diagrams.

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.

Dishwasher door will not open.tried running it another cycle and still nothing.It is a GE profile with the latch that you just push in. The latch/handle seems stiff.


The plastic latch release inside the door handle is broken. Most likely one of the pins holding it in place has broken.

First go to your local dishwasher supplier and look at a similar brand (GE Profile in my case) and see how the mechanism works. Next, get a thin pair of siccors, pull the dishwasher handle down and slid the siccors into the opening above the handel and push the tab holding the door closed up so it will release.

Once the door is open, remove the inside of the door to get to the latch. Remove the plastic latch release and order a new one.

Detergent dispenser


The opening of this dispenser is controlled by a wax motor for release. If you are unable to keep the latch shut you are probably looking at the spring and latch assy. This is not a hard job, but you have to open the inner door to get at the latch. Part numbers for the spring disp. flap is 912547. The latch (inside door) is 99001291. If you take your time and observe carefully the job will be easy. Catriver, post back.
