I can help you fix this issue , you will have to pull the unit out a foot or so. start will opening the door and looking up under your counter top , there should be two screws going into the counter top holding the unit in place , remove these and it should slide out.
when you get it out far enough to see the rest of the hinge get some oil/grese and apply to worn spots on hinge , move the door up and down to work it into the hinge. This should fix your problem. let me know if you have any more questions and how it turns out.

How to fix a squeaky door on a frigidaire gallery dishwasher


Thank you for your post, friend!

I see that you need assistance in repairing a squeaky door on your Frigidaire dishwasher. The best way to quiet down a squeaky door is to pinpoint the cause of the squeak. This could be an issue with your hinges, springs, or the cables. You can use a lubricant such as WD-40 on your those parts to see if that will help alleviate the squeaking. Hope this is helpful. -Matt

Is there any grease points for the door hinges? The door squeaks every time we open.


Hello. Get a can of a penetrating lubricant called WD-40 with a tiny tube applicator included. Open the door and you will see part of each hinge where the door meets the appliance case. Spray the penetrating lube on the exposed part of the hinge and then open and close the door a few times. Repeat as necessary. J.

Kitchenaid DW Door is very squeaky and loud


most likely the hinges are partially rusted through. resulting in all of those sounds. i doubt that you could get anyone to replace the hinges for less money that the cost of a new dishwasher so I recommend replacement.

Difficult to pull door open and loud click coming from left hinge


I would check for obstruction in the path of the door spring areas. If appropriate, remove the bottom access panel (typically 2 screws); open/close the door in attempt to observe the inside bottom left and right for the clicking sound.

If not already done so, also ensure your dish-washer is raised of the floor a little bit; leveled and properly secured to counter top with 2 screws.

Squeaky door


On our KitchenAid dishwasher we had the same problem--a REALLY loud squeak as it opened. The sound comes from the nylon rope slipping along the plastic pulleys. We've had the DW for about 3 years and the noise has gotten worse over time. I was determined to win the war against the noise and am happy to say I fixed it today.

The trick is to use a dry lubricant on the cord and on the pulleys. I used Dry Graphite by Gunk. It comes in an aerosol spray can and once the stuff dried the squeak was gone. I'll let you know if it comes back...
