SOURCE: door catch

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.

your cicuit is overloaded. hook the DW up to its own cicuit, or at least one that will not overload it. Circuits should not be loaded to more than 80% of their capacity. 15 Amp load no more than 12 amp.
when motors/pumps start they use the most load or power, or when your DW turns on the heat.

SOURCE: MOISTURE AND HEAT ESCAPE FROM DOOR SIDES CAUSING

Unfortunately, dishwasher generate a lot of heat and water vapor. Some manufactures are now including a pressure sensitive mylar / aluminum strip to be attached above the door under the counter to prevent water vapor and or heat damage to wood or composition wood counter tops. However if water vapor is seeping out from the side of the door and causing damage to the adjacent cabinets woodwaork, the dishwasher door gasket may be faulty. Since this might be the problem, it would appear that your dishwasher is used a lot or getting old. New gasket is about $20. If the door closes and there appears to be a lot of play in the closed door,the latch may be in need of adjusting if possible. That is, even thought closed and operational, the seal is not tight and the dishwasher is running without having a tight seal on the sides. If you have a stone counter top, any water vapor / heat escaping from the top would not be apparent since stone is not damaged by the heat or water vapor, but the adjacent wood cabinets are.

Is a gap at top between outer door panel and inner control door on Kitchenaid dishwasher KUDE normal?


When the dishwasher starts the drying cycle, there has to be vent that the steam can escape and it just so happens to be on the left side.

Is gap between front door panel and inner panel on a KUDE Kitchenaid dishwasher normal?


Generally, dishwasher doors don't seal to the cabinet. Hot air MAY escape through the gap - this is pretty normal.

FRIGIDAIRE DISHWASHER LEAKING FROM TOP LEFT CORNER OF DOOR IN THE VENT AREA


Typically in this area of the dishwasher door there should not be any leaking. You might be experiencing severe steam and condensation from a cycle that has been completed. You may also go to open the door after a cycle is completed, and a little residual water will escape out of the vent that is angled downward.

Heat is escaping from my built in dishwasher ruining worktop


when the appliance was installed there should of been a metalic paper looking strip that had a sticky back this should unpeeled and be stuck to the underside of the worktop and it will deflect the heat and steam away from your worktop. Sadly this will only get worse if not fitted as everytime the appliance finishes when the door is opened the steam will billow out onto the worktop.

Hope this helps

Right hand side nylon spring cord guide broken when cord snapped and now door return has no tension.


Searched for a nylon rope guide for a Baumatic BDW 9 but was unable to locate one. I found that many of the components for the BDW 9 also fitted the BDW 10. So I searched for the rope guide for a BDW 10 and found the correct product. Problem solved!

The cupboard next to dishwasher becomes full of condensation during drying cycle


Is the machine properly lined up?

Could be a small leak at the top - won't leak water, but steam can escape maybe.
