SOURCE: Door latch is broken and I need to replace it. How

1. Unplug washer.
2. Remove the outer portion of the door bellow. This is the gray rubber boot around the door. Feel around the edge of the door bellow where it attaches to the front of the washer. You will find a wire retaining hoop in the seam between the rubber and the front case. Follow this wire hoop to the bottom of the door bellow and you will find a tension spring. Carefully, stretch this spring apart and remove the wire hoop.
3. Pull the rubber bellow from the door facing on the front of the washer being careful not to rip or tear it. Once removed, fold the rubber backwards inside the drum so you can access behind the front panel. DO NOT remove the rubber bellow from the wash tub.
4. The door latch assembly is located behind the front panel of the washer on the right hand side. Locate and remove the three screws on the washer front that hold the door latch assembly in place. The whole assembly should come free from the washer front and be held by a plastic mounting bracket and several wire connectors.
5. Carefully remove the latch assembly from the plastic mounting bracket BEFORE attempting to unplug any wires. It makes it much easier to access if you do.
6. Unplug the wire connectors using care not to break any of the wires. You may want to write them down, but I believe they will only plug into their respective slots.
7. Remove the old door latch and install the new one in the reverse order of the steps I just presented to you. Plug the wires back in first, then place the whole assembly back into the plastic mounting bracket, and then reattach to the front of the washer.
8. Now, when you get the reinstalling the rubber door boot, you may want to get the assistance of a second pair of hands as it can be difficult sometimes to manipulate the wire retainer back into place. Carefully reattach the rubber bellow to the door facing on the front of the washer first.
9. Starting at the top of the door bellow at the 12 o'clock position begin inserting the wire hoop back into the groove. Work your way around with both hands to the 4 and 8 o'clock positions. (This is where you could use those second pair of hands). While holding a slight downward tension on the wire hoop to keep it in place, pull the tension spring apart enough to snap the remaining part of the hoop into place at the bottom. Once you've completed these steps make sure the door closes and latches properly. NEVER slam a door with an electronic latch. They can break easily.

Now plug the washer back in and test operate. NOTE: You can run diagnostics on these washers by referring to the tech sheet provided by the manufacturer. The tech sheet is located behind the lower panel under the door, or along the interior cabinet walls. Included, are instructions on how to run diagnostics and troubleshooting tips associated with the list of fault codes. It is recommended that this tech sheet remain inside the washer to prevent it from being lost.

How do i remove front panel on meile washing machine w404 plus to rnew door seal

Hi, It would appear that there is alot of miss leading information written here.
Anyway here goes:
Firstly isolate power, It will be easier to view internal workings if the top panel is removed first (remove the cover clips on the side of the top panel to gain access to retaining torx screws) then slide panel backwards to then lift off.
Next..There is a torx fixing screw just just behind the suds draw which needs removing, remove suds drawer completely (press release mechanism) undo screw and keep safe.
The next job is slightly more tricky, pull of control knob carefully, you will then need to remove the facia panel to access the screws behind (facia panel with machine washing details) for this you'll need to use 2 x small stiff pointed implements a couple of stiff sharp pointed kitchen knives will do.
Now this is the tricky bit, locate the points of the knives on the very top edge of the facia panel, gently and firmly push the panel downwards being very careful that you don't slip as you may damage the panel or cut yourself. The panel will slightly move down as it rests on 2 x wire spring clips, your need to prise the panel towards you as you depress this will then allow the facia panel to be removed. Be careful not to loose the spring clips taking note of there position.
Now that bits out of the way the rest is plain sailing.
Remove the 2 x torx screws behind the facia panel located at each end undo and keep safe, carefully remove this electronic panel it will not completely drop out due to the wire connections that's not a problem as you don't need to remove it completely you just need to access a further 2 x torx screws behind this by moving it to either side carefully.
Once you've removed the plastic housing torx screws you can prise out the plastic surround housing casing carefully.
You will now see 2 x torx screws sitting on top of the main front panel these will need removing with the right hand one being a little awkward to access due to the plastic housing dangling in the way.
Next open the front chrome loading door (use the pull cord located behind the filter access door) remove the 2 x torx screws which hold the door locking mechanism (don't worry the mechanism won't fall down behind the front panel when the screws are removed) keep safe.
Next is to remove the lower kick strip at the bottom if the front panel to access fixings screws. You'll need to gently but firmly tug the plastic panel towards you gripping at each end. Once removed undo the 2 x torx screws on the very outer edge the others will not need to be removed.
Lastly going back to the door opening to remove the bolt underneath the rubber seal using a 10mm spanner undo remove and keep safe. Care at this point will be needed as the front panel will only be held on by the door opening grey rubber seal.
obviously if you wish to remove the rubber seal this will then totally disengage the front panel from the machine.
refitting is the reversal of dismantling.
i hope this helps others as I had nothing to work to as there was no information on the net of youtube.
if I've missed any parts out appologies as I'm doing this from memory.

How do you remove the front facia door of a Teknik integral dishwasher

I have just replaced the facia on mine. It is a TKD795/4 so I would imagine yours would be very similar. Around the inside of the door are 10 starhead screws; 4 along the top and 3 down each side. On mine it is the 2 end screws along the top and the 2 middle screws down the sides that hold the facia on. It is best to remove one screw at a time to establish which ones hold the facia on and which hold the door together. The short screws hold the door together and should be replaced and left in place. It is the longer screws that hold the facia on; these only need to be undone enough to release the facia panel. Once you have undone the relevant screws, the facia will lift up enabling you to release the 2 clips at the bottom. Replacement is reverse of removal. Hope this helps.

I have a Bosch washer, model number WFK 2401 that washes and rinses, but suddenly won't spin. It just sits and counts down until the end of the spin cycle and then signals the end of the wash cycle as...

I just had the same problem last week Aug 1 2009
on our WFK 2401 purchased in 2001

If you hear no motor spinning when it should then it's something
with the motor. If you hear motor spinning, esp spin cycle, but
the drum doesn't spin, then probably broken belt ($30 part).

Since I work on cars (this is very much like an alternator+belt) and wanted to avoid a $100 service call (just to come to house) and
at least try for a quick fix before buying a new washer, I opened the back, confirmed belt looked ok, so tried
replacing the brushes in the motor, and it worked.

For a good description on how to do this see
I took some pics, and time permitting will post more details
to this dossy site to help fellow owners.
I purchased the brushes at for $50 (incl tax+ship)

Timer switch has broken on bosch wvf 2401 how to replace?

First remove screws X2 from back of the machine that hold the top cover on. Once removed the whole top slides backwards and can then be lifted off. This gives you access to the plastic clips that hold the timer face panel on. The main control dial must first be pulled off through the front cover, then remove the front cover by unclipping it (a pain and a fiddle!) The dial on the timer can then be pulled off revealing the two mounting screws that hold the timer in!!
