Remove any plinth in front of the base of the machine. In the middle of the base you should see a black screw head with arrows either side. This screw adjusts the height of the machine at the back - clockwise = up and visa versa. The two feet at the front screw in or out of the base moulding to raise or lower the machine. Check that these have not been secured by screws through the front moulding. If so, slacken or remove. NOTE: make sure if the machine is already installed that you have loosened the screws which secure the machine at the top to the underside of your worktop.

Can you adjust the height of the KID60B14 dishwasher?

Hello Jane!

Remove the bottom kick plate on the front of your unit. There should be screw-adjustable legs on each front corner with a toothed wheel. Find a lever and suitable jack point on the frame to raise the unit to desired height and if the adjustment legs are not "frozen" you should be able to turn them with your fingers.

If they won't turn easily, apply some light oil or WD-40 and let it work on the corrosion for a few minutes and try again. If the adjusters are jammed, you may need pliers to turn them.

You may also go straight to pliers without raising the unit first, but the adjustments are more difficult since you are lifting the entire unit.

How do I adjust the springs on the door of a Frigidaire dishwasher Model # FDB24?

Springs run down both sides of the dishwasher from the door hinge to the back leg area of the frame at the bottom leg area. You adjust the spring/door tension but moving the spring to different holes in the frame area. Going one direction in the holes will loosen the door, going the other direction will make the door tighter.

How to level a samsung dishwasher?

Usually the front legs can be adjusted by just turning them. The 1 back leg (Samsungs use a tripod foot support system), is adjusted through a remote screw-type leveler that is located in the center (left-to-right) of the base, just behind the toe-kick panel.

I have a LG LD 2140WH diswasher, it only works for 2 min then give a OE error code. what can be wrong

The possible reasons could be
1. If the drain hose is kinked, water will not drain properly. Kinks will also catch food debris as it passes, clogging drain hose. Straighten any kinks or bends in the hose. Make certain that drain hose does not exceed 10 feet for proper drainage.

2. Check the drain air gap anytime the dishwasher is not draining properly. if the air gap is clogged the unit will not drain. The air gap is not part of the dishwasher. It is located on the sink and attached through the drain hose and garbage disposal. Not all homes are required to have an air gap installed.

3. Food residue or particles can prevent proper draining of dishwasher. Remove bottom rack and check unit for food debris or items that may have fallen into the bottom of the unit. Remove any items or food debris that may be preventing proper drainage.

4. If the unit is not leveled properly, OE Error may occur. Use a level to check sides and top of unit. if the unit is not level, adjust the leveling legs in the front and back (use leveling kit). Also check the mounting brackets. If one is tightened more than the other, it will offset the cabinet.

* Note: To adjust leveling legs on the front, use a 1/4" square drive wrench. Turn clockwise as needed to adjust level. To adjust rear legs, use a standard Phillips head screw driver. On the left side rear, turn the screw counterclockwise to lower the leg and raise the rear. To adjust right side rear, turn the adjusting screw clockwise to lower the leg and raise the rear of dishwasher. Using a level while adjusting the legs will help aid in proper leveling.

What do i use to adjust the back legs on diplomat dishwasher it says in the manual the rear feet are adjusted by the front studs they dont seem to move so how do i adjust or is there a tool i should use

I used to use a thin open end wrench to adjust mine, not sure about your brand/model. It's probably siezed up over time, so you might try to prop the front of the dishwasher up to relieve pressure enough to adjust the legs. If you have a mechanically-minded friend, you might have them take a look- it always helps to have a second opinion.

Cannot adjust the rear legs to the correct height.

Is it that you cannot reach them? If so, pull the machine out enough to where you can get to those legs from the side and adjust them that way, then push it back in. There's also a 'kick plate' that can be removed allowing you more wiggle room to get back there with a wrench. Good luck!
