Question about Baumatic 18 in. BDW45.1 Built-in Dishwasher

1 Answer

Door catch I have a BDW45.1 about 18 months old. Recently the door will not stay shut and springs open. The machine has a wooden door on the front. The door used to shut easily (under spring power) but now you have to lift it. I know you cah adjust the springs but couldn't find the adjusting screws mentioned in the manual? Also is ther any adjustment on the catch, as not convinced it is merely 'loose' springs causing the problem. any help much apreciated

Right on the top edge of the machine - get a torch and look directly under the worktop - there are two hex-head screwws about 4" in from each side. Clockwise to increase spring tension.

The door flap on my KitchenAid French Door fridge isn't springing completely back into place, and it's catching on the other door.


Locate and adjust the spring responsible for getting that flap into proper place and all will be resolved.

Door springs


If the door won't stay shut the issue is with the door catch not the door springs, But if you want to know where the door springs are you need to remove the outer cabinet of the dishwasher and you will see them on the lower sides.

Replace bellow seal


Hello.

1 Unplug the power cord. Pull the Whirlpool Duet away from the wall. Remove the screws at the back of the machine using a Phillips screwdriver. Remove the top panel from the machine and set it aside.

2 Remove the soap dispenser from the front of the machine by pulling it out and depressing the button at the back to release it. Remove the soap dispenser bracket retaining screws, using a Phillips screwdriver. Pull the dispenser bracket out of the washer.

3 Remove the retaining screws from the control panel with a Phillips screwdriver. Release the locking clips and flip the control panel on top of the machine. There is no need to disconnect the wiring harness. Open the washing machine door and remove the retaining screws from the door latch, using a nut driver.

4 Remove the outer retaining spring from the bellow seal using a pair of needle-nose pliers to grasp the loop and pull it out. Peel the bellow away from the door opening, using your fingers. Push the bellow seal inside the machine after you release it from the door opening.

5 Lift the front of the washing machine and put a wooden block under it.
Remove the retaining screws from the bottom of the front panel using a nut driver. Remove the wooden block from under the washing machine and lower the unit back to the floor. Remove the screws at the top of the front panel with a nut driver. Pull the panel away from the machine and set it aside.

6 Pull the old bellow seal from the machine. Unplug the white and black hoses from the old bellow seal . Remove the spring clamp from the bellow and throw the old bellow seal away. Rub liquid laundry soap on the groove of the new bellow seal. Push the new bellow seal onto the washtub with the opening for the hoses at the top. Push firmly until it is on tight.

7 Install the spring clamp on the new bellow seal into the groove using a Phillips screwdriver. Plug the black and white hoses into the holes at the top of the bellow. Be careful not to damage the bellow seal. Place the front of the machine on the frame and install the top screws using a nut driver. Push the door latch through the hole and install the retaining screws.

8 Press the bellow seal into place around the door opening and install the spring clamp around the perimeter of the bellow. Lift the machine and place the wood block under it. Install the bottom screws with the nut driver. Remove the wooden block and place the machine back on the floor. Put the control panel in place and lock the retaining clips.

9 Install the soap dispenser bracket and the retaining screws using a Phillips screwdriver. Install the retaining screws on the control panel. Place the top cover on the machine and install the screws with the Phillips screwdriver. Plug in the power cord and push the machine against the wall. Install the soap dispenser drawer and push it all the way in so the tab locks into place.

Thanks.

Belling SGE12X broken door handlw


it's not an easy job to replace a door handle, but to release it for the door to open, turn off the machine at the outlet and unplug. Take the top of the machine off and slide your hand down to the door catch. Depending which type of catch it is, you should either be able to push down a small lever on top or push up a small lever on the bottom or the door catch.

I hope this helps
