If we are talking about the quiet partner 3 the silverware container can actual hang more effectively on the lower dish rack itself as opposed to on the door. The flap also does just snap on. Hold the back side of the metal with your thumb while pusing with even pressure on the plastic flap. I still reccomend though hanging the whole assembly on the outside of the lower rack.

I have a whirlpool gu2400 dishwasher. The spring loaded soap dispenser door does not open during the wash cycle to release the soap.


Whirlpool dishwashers use a wax motor or a solinoid to release the door at a specific time during the cycle. So for proper cleaning the soap cup is nessesary . The part isn't that expensive and fairly simple repair.

If the detergent cup doesn't open, check the detergent cup, the bi-metal switch or wax motor, and the timer. Make sure that no dishes are blocking it from opening.
The cup that holds the detergents can get caked and gooped up with old detergent. You should try to clean away any old detergent. If you can't clean the detergent away, you should replace the cup.
The bi-metal switch is activated by the timer and is an electrically operated device that bends when electricity is applied to it. It uses two different metals that are bonded together. As they warm up, they expand at different rates causing the metal to bend. The degree of bending can be set with a high degree of precision. Many devices use the bi-metal switch. A lot of newer dishwashers use a wax motor instead of the bi-metal switch. The wax motor has a wax block that gets heated up when the timer sends electricity to it. The wax expands as it gets heated up, and it pushes a plunger that opens the detergent door. Depending on how your dishwasher is wired, the switch may be wired through the motor circuitry or through the heating element. If the heating element is broken, there will be no electricity to properly activate the switch or heat the wax block in the wax motor to open the cup. If the motor doesn’t let enough electricity through its circuit, the bi-metal switch won't operate properly, or the wax motor wax block won't get heated up to expand and push the plunger.
On many dishwashers, an actuator arm links the timer to the detergent cup. When the timer reaches the correct time of the cycle, it activates a lever that opens the cup. If this link is broken or in any other respect faulty, the cup will stay closed, and won't let the detergent into the dishwasher. Check this linkage and either fix or replace it.

I have a Samsung DMR57LF that is maybe 19 months old. The top sprayer arm falls off during cleaning. It snaps back on, but doesn't stay on. How do I fix this?


Hi

The issue seems to be with the plastic part located on the connector that clips into the arm that is falling, if that is broke you have to replace it, in a 19 months old dishwasher I don't think that the arm can go bad. Hope this helps...please post back for further assistance.

The detergent flap does not open


Check the dispenser for easy close & open. Trouble could be- latch relay not getting energized- wires might have snapped - relay driver - command not reaching from the controller etc.

If you check all the points you will get an idea. I feel micro-controller may not have any problem as other cycle is OK.

Further assistance contact the authorized service center.

Wand will not spin


First check the wand for trash, such as plastic from straws or bags, and glass from a broken glass. If the mater ports are clean your most likly cause is the impeller in the bottom needs replaced because of broken fins from broken glass and coins or silverware being dropped in the bottom. This is usually easy to repair, two or four screws parts can be bought at an appliance repair parts store or sears.

My Kitchenaid dishwasher not cleaning dishes on top shelf


You need to clean the jets on the machine arm with an old toothbrush etc... then clean out the debris filter on the bottom of the tub near the dryer bar. The calcification in the little jet areas causes this problem. This should help.

The dispenser flap should be spring loaded to spring open if the lock is released. If it doesn't spring open you should make sure that the spring is placed correctly on the hinge of the flap - if it doesn't spring open it won't get the detergent where it needs to go during the wash. We had the same thing.

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.

Watch also for how you load the upper rack. The flap opens inward and the rack has an opening to permit full opening. If this is blocked by your dishes, the flap won't open properly.
