Dishwasher door won't open all the way

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.

Re: Dishwasher door won't open all the way

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!

Dishwasher just quit one day, controls or lights do not work, I have power so that is not the issue,

The first place I would suggest that you look, is to make sure your door is closing all the way. Make sure nothing has gotten stuck down at the bottom of the door and no silverware is stopping it from closing. You dishwasher has a door open/ajar switch that in a part of the door lock. If it is even just a little bit open, it will stop power to the timer and will not come on at all. Unless you are very comfortable with electricity, I would suggest you do not open the cabinet up as you are mixing two very dangerous items. Electricity and water.... you could receive a very bad shock or even death if you don't get it right the first time. If you are ok with the possibility, I can give you additional info.

My dishwasher will not run. None of the lights are on. The D/W ran fine a few days ago. Nothing has occurred. Checked fuse box and there has been no disruption of power. The model # is GU 1500 XTL 83....


The most probable thing wrong is a THERMAL FUSE that is clipped to the control panel housing.
If your fairly mechinacally inclined and want to check that,remove the screws from all around the inside of the door when its opened,seperatae the inner/outer door panels and remove the cover off the control board and check for contunuty on the thermal fuse. THe first thing to do before taking apart the door is TURN OFF POWER TO DISHWASHER AT THE FUSE PANEL.
This pictures shows where the thermal fuse oldtech2332_61.jpg
the part number for the thermal fuse is 8193762 it could be purcahsed at your local appliance parts store or online at;

Dishwasher door locked shut

Apply firm pressure to the door while you press or pull the release latch. The screws holding the latch assembly could have loosened. Tighten screws after you get it open.
