Question about KitchenAid 24 in. KUDG25SH Built-in Dishwasher

1 Answer

Exterior of door has come loose.

Looks like the door must be taken apart to re-attach the exterior cover. Also the hinge is catching on a small metal lip inside the door.
Any tips?

Sounds like the panel your talking about is the color panels.

Usually you take one of the side frames off and the panel will slide in.

As for the door rubbing on the inside, I would be suspect the bottom kick panel is not properly installed.

Reply back if I'm near correct, and I'll help you get it all back together.

Why does my dishwasher not close

Sounds like my daughter and her kids sitting on the door when its down. When lifted into position the latch no longer matches the"catch" It might require a little ingenuity to bend the door hinges back. it definitely sounds mechanical. Even a pro wouldn't let you watch how he bends that back. worse case scenario bite the bullet, call service tech, pay for labor AND parts (hinges or latch/catch) thinking again some of the older models (like cars) the latch is engaged and is waiting/depending on the opening of the door to change it's position. trying to shut it and a hard metal on metal clunck! might indicate a closed latch and not bent hinges... Good luck and give Fixya a bit of feed back~~~hope this helps---> S

Hi, I have a small leak at the bottom right hand corner of the door. If you push in on the door while it's running it stops and the noise level goes down. Is there an adjustment for the door or would it...

No adjustment. Try cleanig door gasket. If still leaks hinge probably got bent from leaning on door. Or door got bent. Needs to be taken apart to find cause for problem.

The door is very heavy when you open it. When you go to open the door it just drops straight down

Sounds like the retaining bracket has come loose on the side its is attached on the inside this is separate to the hinges at the bottom that hold the door on, does the bracket feel loose?

If so you may need a service its is difficult to get in to reattach unless you have done it before dont without at least one other person to help

Maytage dishwasher soap dispenser not operating properly

I have an older (1990) Maytag dishwasher that had the same problem. In my case liquid dish soap had penetrated the seal and dried out causing the rotating cover shaft to freeze up.

Remove the door panel and then disconnect and remove the soap dispenser from the door. Make a diagram of the soap dispenser as you carefully disassemble it; there is a coil spring around the soap door axis. If you find a buildup on the door shaft or in the hole it rotates in or in the groove the door rides in, try removing the residue with a plastic scuffy pad after letting it soak in a lime scale remover (Lime Away) or some other cleaner. I think Jet Dry makes a dishwasher cleaner. Before you reassemble the dispenser, wipe a thin film of plumbers grease (available at Home Depot or Lowes) on the shaft.

If the door is free turning and doesn't appear to be bound up, then the problem may be with a heating element that expands when energized, allowing the door to open to the second soap compartment. An ohmmeter will be needed to test the thermal lock.

These jobs are fairly simple and should need only a Phillips screwdriver and a volt ohmmeter.

Happy Motoring!
