Why do no panel lights turn on when my Kenmore Model 587.1625 is latched and ready


The door latch in Kenmore and Kitchenaid isn't of the best design.The spring steel latching tab is needs to push down the black plastic slide mechanism when the door in closed. That slide pushes down on a micro switch which interrupts the cycle when you open the door when the dish washer is running. Take the latch assembly back out. You can insert two compression springs inside the slide on each side of the latch. They are approx 3/16 Dia x 3/4 to 1 inch long. In the hardware dept at Home Depot or Lowe's..The springs will push the slide down hard enough to activate the switch. Right now your dish washer thinks the door is open.

My maytag dishwasher will run for a short then stop running, I'll push on the door the machine will run again then will stop again


your door is not staying latched.. imagine if it did stay running and the door came completely open, what a mess that would be. so there are safety switches that help stop the washing if the door opens. not too sure how to fix your exact washer.. but the problem is the door not staying closed. maybe you can jamm the door shut while it is running? its not the best answer, but probably the most free way to fix it

The dishwasher only runs when pressure is applied to front door. As soon as pressure is released, washer stops running


The door switch/latch is out of adjustment or faulty.

Go to RepairClinic.com and enter your full model # to see/order a replacement latch/switch.

We got our maytag 300 quiet series about 3 years ago from home depot. about a year ago the option buttons/lights on the right side went dead. It was out of warranty and still worked so i ignored it. Now...


Our Maytag dishwasher (an earlier model) quit too. Found that the door latch operates two micro-switches which supply power to the machine and one of the switches no longer made contact when operated. The switch pair and the plastic latch parts are sold as a package for about $15 on the internet. A number of lights in the door are held in place by a small colored lens for each light and the lenses have disintegrated leaving the lights to hang by the wires inside the door cavity. Plan to use contact cement to glue the lights in place. I don't know if this will help you, but it doesn't take long to open the door cavity. Make sure to remove power to the machine before opening it up.

We have a MDB6000AWW model d/w. It is leaking


Yes what happens is it gets past the rubber seal somewhere higher during the cycle and gravity pulls the water down to where you see it leaking. 11 years is a good lifespan of a door seal. Plus they are easy to pull out and replace. Just yank it out and push the new one in. Hope this helps.

I have a GE dishwasher model GSD1100G and the door will not latch now. Any ideas?


Yessir, I have a few.
1. Check the latch and strike. Usually, they're just loose.
2. Check the wiring to the switch. The lock and latch take a good bit of vibration being opened and closed.
3. Take a good look at the latch for physical damage. It happens. Your only recourse here is probably to replace the latch.
4. You didn't mention if the washer would run; the door latch is a permissive switch - if the washer will run, the switch is making contact, but the latch is defective. If it won't run, either the latch switch is bad, or the issue may be the control panel.
Best regards, --W/D--

Door Interlock switch Maytag MDB4100 dishwasher


If the door is not latching well enough try adjusting the spring on the tub it's the male part that goes into the door latch. If that doesn't help you need to replace the latch. It's inside the door. The switch is mounted to the latch in the door so to get to it you have to remove all the screws around the outside edge of the inner door panel. Unhook power before replaceing latch or switch!

If the door handle appears loose, you could have a broken door latch which will prevent the dishwasher from running if the door is not able to latch properly. The latch usually has two micro switches that are pretty delicate. Not to accuse you of abusing your appliance, but if you're in the habit of slamming the dishwasher door shut, you could inadvertently break the switches in the door. The switch assembly and handle are sold separately, so you may need to purchase both. Let me know if this helps.
