Question about Whirlpool GU2400XTP Built-in Dishwasher

1 Answer

Door brake on dishwasher broken

The door damper on my Whirlpool dishwasher has snapped with a loud bang and now is free to fall to the open stop when the catch is released if you do not gently drop the door whilst supporting with your hand. Is it possible to rectify and if so what steps are required to get to the malfunctioned part and replace it?

Many thanks

I have a whirlpool gu2400 dishwasher. The spring loaded soap dispenser door does not open during the wash cycle to release the soap.


Whirlpool dishwashers use a wax motor or a solinoid to release the door at a specific time during the cycle. So for proper cleaning the soap cup is nessesary . The part isn't that expensive and fairly simple repair.

Whirlpool dishwasher door falls open fast when opening. plastic part came off, but don't know where it is from


remove the bottom access covers on the bottom of dishwasher. turn on the dishwasher with water valve in off position so you can here the motor running,while its on, find the breaker and turn off power.you will here motor stop. disconnect power wires from power box on right hand side,then disconnect water line open the dishwasher door and at the top remove screws holding dishwasher in place. pull dishwasher out from bottom.you may have to adjust bottom adjustable screw legs. pull it out and check sides where springs are for the door to open and close. it may have came loose.

Dishwasher was on...while on I noticed a small banging noise..then it seemed the door wasnt shut tightly so I pushed it in...the washer stopped ..it wont restart and I cant open the door


Most door catches also incorporate a switch that stops the machine when you open the door. In "over closing" the door you may have "gone past" the switch which would likely make the controler think that the door was open. Try giving the door a firm but steady pull to release the mechanism.

Washing machine door lock


it could be simply a sticky saftey switch neverless a pain, you could try disconecting the power supply to the machine as the catch is held in a lock state by a current, remove the current and it could reset, if still does not reset this is always hard to explain, but using your fist like a hammer bang the area around the catch as this could free the sticking (still with power off) catch dont bang it hard but it need to be firm use discretion ---post back if more help needed

Cant get oven door back on


Oven doors are made to lift off for routine maintenance but there might be problems if the spring load hinges are not disabled before pulling the door off the body.

There should be a catch which holds the hinge in the open position but if it is the release position (i.e. the state in which it is in for normal use), the I would expect the hinges to snap into the closed position when the door is removed from the body.

To rectify this, hold each spring loaded arm in the position it would be in the "door open" position and move the catch into the position which prevents the arm springing back when they are released.

It should now be possible to fit the door to the cooker.

When the door is fitted, release the catches.
