SOURCE: door handle will not engage with latch to open door.

yea but the trick is the latch acces is behind console not the front panel, you need to unistall the d/w slightly to remove strike plate holding broken latch closed, door needs to be opened to gain access to console screws

SOURCE: Kitchenaid dishwasher - door will not latch

The latch needs to be replaced. Kitchen Aid has made two updates to this latch. I.E. 2-revised latches. I just replacd the latch assembly and the dishwasher works fine now. Do a search for kitchen aid repair parts online and hav them shipped to your home. The repair takes five minutes. Un-screw all torx bit screws on door and the latch is under neath. One electrical dip switch held on by another screw and a two prong tab to undo the old latch. This seriously took me five minutes to repair and the parts were $40.00 online shipped.

Hope his helps.

SOURCE: I need to remove the screen in my kitchenaid dishwasher

Generally the food grinder is just a small piece of wire looking material that sits behind a screen and grinds the smallest particles that get through..and try to grind down any larger pieces that happen to get through and those that don't generally clog the screen up. To remove and clean this assembly you will have to remove both dish racks (for work room) and then the sprayer arm which may unscrew from the top of the motor cover assembly....and then there are a series of screws, (may be hex head screws) that encircle the assembly...remove those and you will have a clear view of the entire assembly...a shop vac will come in handy as there will probably be water standing in the bottom...you should be able to see the screen and the little wire arm extension that acts as the grinder(if that's what they are using in your model) you should see a nut or screw that holds the screen in place...but you may not have to remove it if you can get to easily and vacuum out the food particles or clean it with an old toothbrush or something of the sort...I used to just clean them by rubbing the end of my flat head screwdriver over the face of the screen and thereby breaking up any lodged particles.


I hope this helps...please let me know by rating me...thank you ...The Fang

SOURCE: maytag MDBH950AWB handle/latch failed.

Replaced handle/latch unit. Killed power to the unit. Removed the inside door panel then unplugged the two switches on the latch. Removed old latch with broken handle (removing inside panel frees latch/handle). Installed new latch with handle reconnected the two switches, reinstalled inside door panel. Very simple. Note: Latches can be purchased with or without the handle. Less expensive to buy with the handle already installed on the latch.

My kitchenaid DW kudc101xwho will not stay on. Runs a few min and shuts off. Is this the control panel or the timer?


May be this is the reasons.

a) May be your door latch is opening due to pressure inside the dishwasher. The door latch opens and the dishwasher will stop. Quite common problem on KITCHENAID. KitchenAid door is a heavier door compared to sister product WHIRLPOOL. If door latch problem then has to change the door lock along with the top latch.

Kenmore DW model #665 16023403 will not turn on. There is power to the DW but the panel does not light up. Checked circuit breaker. Door tightly shut and latches. Just 3 yrs old. Would love to fix myself....


The electronic control panel should be replaced and cost about $240. It is easy to remove and replaced --- pull and plug like a standard elect plug, only its flat.

This definitely works.

The dishwasher door snaps open, stopping cycle. The friction catch often requires multiple presses to hold closed sufficient to allow the cycle to begin. I would like to know what adjustments are required...


Hello,

Welcome to FixYa.

I suspect based on your description...it is the door strike that is likely fatigued as is common with these machines, thus allowing the door to "pop" open. The latch doesn't hold it closed, it just activates the switches, the strike is designed to hold it closed.


It is part # 8574157 and will look like the image here...

macmarkus_678.jpg

You do not need to remove the control panel to access the strike for the door latch assembly. It is done simply by pulling up (may need a flat screwdriver or the like) on the latch and forward. The new one also simply clips in place.

**make sure to turn off the breaker/power before servicing the unit...safety first**

Let me know if you need any further assistance and I will try to help in any manner I can. Good luck,

Regards,

Macmarkus :)

I need to replace the detergent dispenser latch on


To replace the parts you have to buy a whole dispenser assemble for $100 to $200. To buy some time ... Get a heavy gage sewing needle - hold it with pliers and heat it red hot. Stick the hot end into the plastic door at the area where the plastic latch is (where it will line up with the far end of the latch mechanism). when it cools cut off most of the needle leaving one eight to one sixteenth (more or less) protruding. Use a drill and small bit to remove some plastic (or drill a small hole) on the spring latch mechanism. push the remaining part of the needle in or out to engage the hole in the latch.. this will hold awhile.

My KitchenAid dishwashers door will not stay shut. I have replaced both hinges, the plastic rollers for the tension lines that atached to the spring. Still no luck. Could it be that the locking (?) switch...


Sure thing.
Our dishwasher is one that we put our own "Door on it" in our case, it matches the cabinet. It is designed for that.
I went on-line and ordered the replacement parts. I can't recall the site but I will look thru my files and send to you if I find it.
I removed our door front and slid the DW out about 1/2 to 2/3 of the way. I did not want to mess with disconnecting power and water lines. 1/2 way out should be enough room to work on the places you need to be. On both sides near the back and bottom you will see a large tension spring. Be careful not to bust a knuckle here. Using a sturdy hook of some kind is recommended. In place of that you might try a solid wooedn hanger with a heavy hook on it. BE CAREFUL, while pulling on the front part of the spring you will release the tension on the cord that is around the plastic guide wheels and attaches to the bottom hinge of the door.
Release the hook and then the tension you have on the spring. repeat this on the other side. With both sides free the door should lift off the hinges and the base it sits on. inspect your hinges. mine were bent, not much, but I was at whits end. I replaces both. I also replaced both cords that were attached to the tension spring and one of the plastic roller wheels ? I am sure there is a better name for them. It was the longer of that is on the tear drop shaped fastener.
I then placed the door back in posistion and closed it. On the the tear dropped shaped guide wheel (the one at the bottom) you will see that there are holes to adjust the tension. The closer you move this wheel towars the front of the machine, the more tension on the hinges. I set mine in the middle and this seemed to work. Before you slide it back in the space, try a test to see if the door stays shut. ie. run a rinse cycle too. Hopefully that is all you will need to do...BUT.
That was not to total solution in our case. I ended up ordering and replacing the door switch (a black plastic piece that is what the metal latch on the machine is supposed to "hook" into.
Replacing it is fairly simple. I did shut the power off for this. This part is replaced by taking off your face plate which is secured bu screws inside of your DW door around the edge. You will see 4 screws to remove and it "snaps" out. At this point you can see the working relationship with the latch, the switch and the contacts on the switch that the door latch (metal part coming out of the top of the DW) after replacing this...try the process again and hopefully your issue will be solved. I had to remove my latch and bend it back to the original shape and mess around with a slight bend to make it latch and hit the contacts in the door latch.
Good luck! I am sorry this is so long. :-)

You will need to bring the DW about 8-10 inches out from under the counter to access the door springs on the side of the unit.

Door Drops Open - How to Fix


Today my father and I solved this problem permanently for about four dollars. Yes only $4!!! I priced out the total repair for a Kitchenaid repair guy with parts and labor to be at least $250 and that was just too much for a $1500 dishwasher. Here's how we did it and here's how kitchenaid should have done it in the first place...
After searching the internet and diagnosing the problem with my kitchenaid superba dishwasher, I also found that my nylon pulley spring system on one side had ruptured. Door made loud explosive sound one day when opening and then would just drop open real hard once unlatched after that day. I really didn't care too much about it until my three year old almost opened the door on my one year old's head. I took off the bottom panel and found a broken nylon string and a couple of white plastic pieces.
That lead me to this website.
So I looked into fixing this myself and got ready to order the part from here
http://www.repairclinic.com/SmartSearch/SSPartDetail.aspx?PartID=1059756&PPStack=1

and found it would be about $25 with shipping and handling and would arrive in about a week. I figured that there has to be a better way than nylon string to absorb the transition from metal spring to metal door. This problem was bound to recur in a short period of time because nylon is not made to take that tensile force. We went to Lowe's, bought four feet of 1/16 inch galvanized woven steel cable (total cost of $1) and two sets of ferrule and stops ($3 for both). 7_9_2012_4_05_45_am.jpg
Then we unscrewed the two side fasteners holding the dishwasher to the cabinets (We had already unscrewed the two screws and removed the base board). We placed masking tape on the floor to prevent the foot pads from scratching as we pulled out the dishwasher. With a little upward lift, my father was able to turn the foot pads and create more room and we then placed felt pads under them to padd additional protection from scratching.

Here is the broken nylon and its plastic pieces and the spring

close up of the poor construction that this heavy door relies on
7_9_2012_4_14_43_am.jpg
We then measured out the distance from the end of the spring through the pulleys and to the hook on the door to be 17 inches, and thus, constructed a steel replica 16.5 inches to keep everything tight.

7_9_2012_4_16_49_am.jpg
So, from then end of one loop to the end of the other loop measured 16.5 inches. We double crimped each end with the ferrules.
7_9_2012_4_18_30_am.jpg
The other side was intact, but we just went ahead and removed it and replaced it with our new steel cable replicas. Here is the final insertion showing the steel cable going through the pulleys and hooking on the door.
7_9_2012_4_20_28_am.jpg
The door works great. My wife can't believe it. Most of all, my children are safe from head injuries from the heavy door. This whole escapade took about 45 minutes to do and literally only cost $4, yes four dollars. I suggest two people to do the job as my father was helpful in holding the flashlight and making sure we had enough slack on the water lines when we pulled out and pushed the washer back in. I hope this helps anyone that googles 'kitchenaid superba door' or 'kitchenaid superba broken heavy door'. Eat your heart out kitchenaid, make the next line of washers with a steel cable instead of nylon.
