Question about Kenmore 15522 Built-in Dishwasher
Since just 2 days ago our dishwasher door only opens about 80%. I don't know how it comes apart or what to look for as to the problem. Any suggestions? The ID plate says this is a Kenmore Model 16798792. Thanks for any help.
You;ll need to remove the "kick" panel first. Use a 1/4" nut driver or socket. Then open the door and remove the 2 phillips screws that mount the dishwasher to the underneath of the cabinet. Then scoot the dishwasher out about 6 inches or so. You'll be able to use a flashlight and look closely at the door hinges and spring assy. to see what's hindering the full extension of the door. You MAY need to take the water valve off to get it to scoot out so you can work on it. Don't take the copper pipe off of the valve, just remove the screws that hold the valve onto the frame. And don't forget to KILL THE POWER TO THE DISHWASHER PRIOR TO SERVICING!
