SOURCE: dishwasher door latch

Check for a couple of screws to the left and right of the latch handle. Remove them and the unit should slide out and allow you access... By the way...if they are loose, tighten them first...you may just fix the problem.

SOURCE: dishwasher door latch

I just had this problem (or should I say, finally had the time to deal with it). Google searches revealed different ways to get the door open including repairmen with crowbars (causing replacement of the entire control assembly $$$), having to back out the top screws that hold the dishwasher in place (and to the top of the counter) with pliers, then moving the dishwasher out from the counter.

Nuts to all that.

First things first. Turn OFF the power to the dishwasher.

I wound up on my back first watching how the handle moved and which side seemed to be loose, in my case the right side was moving freely. After first trying to hold the handle in the "down" position with a springhook (to no avail) I wound up biasing the handle to the right (with a screwdriver inserted on the left side of the handle) while moving the handle in the "operate" direction. Suddenly (and without warning) the entire handle assembly moved to the right and created an opening that made it simple to stick a screwdriver up to operate the latch manually.

Four screws later the control panel was out, the offending broken handle assembly was in my hands to discover that they could have easily made the little tabs the hold the handle in place a whole lot sturdier, but let's not go there...

If I had to do the whole thing again it would have taken me less than 5 minutes to open it up I'm sure. Now to simply order the part and install it when it arrives. The best part is we can still run the dishwasher until it gets here!

SOURCE: Dishwasher door won't open, latch seems broken

Hello, I read your comment. If the latch is broken, then I suggest first of all disconect the electricity from the dishwasher. You may want to try using a small screwdriver and insert it where the latch is to activate the opening mechanism. If it doesnt open, then there are two options, I suggest to call the technical service to replace the door with a new latch.

Hope I have been of help.

SOURCE: Bosch Dishwasher SHX46A latch stuck in down possition.

look at the latch via the hole in the door where it closes to the tank? is the latch faced away from the tank? if so, then grab a paper clip and fold it so you can hook it around the latch then just pull outward towards the tank. you might need to hold that paper clip with some pliers. if it happens more than once then you will need to replace that door lock.

Lg LD-1403w dishwasher stops mid cycle


Most likely the water temperature is not reached as required and the dishwasher times out and stops without draining the water. It is likely the inlet water temperature is not adequate or if only using cold water the thermistor or the water heater are faulty.
Look for part M083 in the diagrams at the back of the service manual attached. you can also perform some diagnostics as shown in there but be very careful about the sequence otherwise you may flood or damage the dishwasher components.

LD WD1238C Door is Locked shut tried every trick you can think of including giving it a little kick


often on the upper grade washing machines, the components are a little more sophisticated. Possibly once you have removed the top lid, you will see the door latch from the back. some of the latches have a drawstring that you can pull which mechanically releases the door and opens. If you are able to before getting into stripping the wachine, gie it a quick cycle run and let it complete the cycle, Then try and open it. go from there.

Door won't latch to LG LDF6810ST


You have to pull out your unit about 3 inches to get to where the latch is screwed in. It is a phillips screw. The part number is 4026DD3001A. In the meantime to keep it closed you are going to have to get creative..

LG Dishwasher Model LD-1403W gets stuck and stops on rinse cycle leaving water in bottom of machine. I have stripped it down and emptied it, made sure filters etc are clean but to no avail


LG Dishwasher LD 1403W. We have cleaned it and when it gets to the heating cycle after running right through to nearly the end, it trips all the electricity and stops everything. Its only 3 years old and hubby thinks its the heating element but between $200=$300 to fix.
