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

Dishwasher is about two years old. For the last four months it has become increasingly difficult to open the door to the diswasher. The left hinge seems to be holding back. When it does finally release there is a LOUD click .

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.

Is it possible to reverse door swing on dryer? My daughter has a new Elite front load dryer that swings from left.


REVERSING DOOR SWING
Your dryer is designed so the door swing may be reversed at any time without additional parts. Conversion is accomplished by transferring hinges to the opposite side of the cabinet.
To change the direction of the door opening:
1. Open the dryer door. Remove the four hinge hole plugs from the left side of the door opening. Place nearby for future installation. NOTE: You may need a plastic knife to help pull out the plugs. Be careful not to scratch the paint.

2. Remove the four screws that secure the door hinges to the dryer front panel (see below). NOTE: Remove one screw from each of the two hinges first. Hold the door firmly before removing the last two screws.

3. Rotate the door 180° and reinstall the door hinges to the dryer front panel with the four screws.

4. Install the four hinge hole plugs in the open screw holes on the right side of the door opening.

Hope this helped Tim

Very loud screetch when you open and close the door.


This can be difficult to correst. The door hinge attaches to a lever, connested to a length of cord, connected to a spring. Tight installations can sometimes cause insulation to get scrunched next to all than mechanism. The minimum space to install is 24x24x34, front to back, side to side. more is actually a little better ( are you listening, builders?) High end dishwashers have thicker insulation and it is harder to squeeze it into its space. The insulation tends to catch on every splinter, screw tip, etc. You may have to pull the dishwasher and grease up the hinge and check that all insulation is away from the mechanism. Hope this helps,

Dishwasher door is jammed shut


Hi, I have the same dishwasher with the same problem. Basically i just have to pull it as hard as I can from both sides of the dishwasher door near the top, and it makes a loud "click" and comes open. Not sure what the problem is with it, but i've been doing that for a number of years.

MAYTAG MDBO880AWB LEAKS FROM LEFT SIDE DOOR ONLY SOMETIMES AND


If the door is sprung in a manner that one side is flush and not other then most likely the hinge has been bent outward by the weight placed on it.the best solution would be to replace hinge,the spring only adjusts the tension for door closing. There is a slight possibility that either the frame or the door has bent in this manner so before buying hinge check frame and door for damage,after doing repair would suggest adjusting front legs of unit to raise front up a bit to ensure leaking wont continue

WATER QUIT RUNNING IN DOOR


Okay. My appliance is around four years old. The first time the water quit working was about a year ago (ice cubes / dispenser was fine). I just let it go and didn't worry about it. One day months later, I found it functional again. That lasted about a month or two, then it recently quit again. Tonight, I located the water supply line coupling under the unit on the left side under the freezer door, about five inches from the hinge. I separated the coupling (push lock type) and pressed the water dispenser lever. After a few seconds, the water flowed out just fine. I re-attached the coupling, turned the freezer coldness selector to 0 (off) opened the freezer door and fetched my wife's blow dryer. I ran the dryer along the inside of the freezer door near the black door seal frrom the hinge up to the water/ice dispencer compartment. I also ran it all along the back of the dispenseer compartment to the handle side of the door as I am unsure of where the water line runs. After about ten minutes of this, I attempted to dispense water with no luck. I continued with the blow dryer until the plastic and even the door seal were very warm to the touch. I closed the door and attempted to dispense water once again, and this time it worked. I turned the coldness selector back on. This time I set the freezer to 3 and the fridge to 7. I ran several cups of water through the dispenser since it's been sitting in the line for a while before drinking any. As for the "reservoir," I don't where or if one exists, but heating up the inside of the door from hinge to dispenser worked perfectly. Hope this helps someone!

Cheers!
