Question about KitchenAid 24 in. KUDS01FLSS Built-In Dishwasher
Hi my dishwasher door won't latch & stay closed. I checked for things in the way or racks not in properly. latch comes open each time....
Finally fixed kitchenaid dishwasher door popping open! After replacing latches and strike plates twice, but still the door not staying closed, I tried a different approach and it works. You must adjust the front levelers up. They are located behind front kick plate. Simply turn them to full raised position. My theory is that the tub frame is not as rigid as it needs to be and therefore the door frame is extremely sensitive to being out of square. This finally fixed the problem, took three years of trouble shooting, but that is the fix. Spread the word!

Same problem wirh KUDS01FLBT5 - door will not stay closed or pops opens quickly if it does close (w/o proping shut). Replaced door latch (in door), cabinet (metal box), hinge pulley chords, Level whole dishwasher and door. This is weird - I think it's a design issue. We are now replacing the D/W with a GE product.

Same latch, same problem, different solution! here's what I did to solve this. After removing the screws from the countertop pull the unit forward a few inches and you will see the latch strike. Cut a 2 inch piece of wire coat hanger and insert the piece under the right side and push it over the center section and under the left side. It should be as close to the door edge as possible. Test to see if that solves it... it did for me.

I pulled the dishwasher out from under the counter and raised the front by sliding a bit of plastic under the front levelers. This resolved the problem. But the level I raised the front is too high to fit under the counter. I still have no explanation as to how this problem developed. Has anyone tried replacing the hinges?

Same problem. I raised the levels in the front and also loosened slightly loosened the screws holding the dishwasher in place under the rim of the countertop. This worked.

Error CL appears when the dishwasher control
detects door switch is open or door is open. You'll have to open the door and
check the continuity of the door switch. If the door seems to be closed then it
is the control has detected an issue with the door latch. Check the door latch
& seals to make sure door is closing fine. Unplug the dishwasher from power
outlet and wait for 10-15 minutes. Restart the dishwasher and check if the
error is still there. If error still appears then you'll need to repalce the door
switch/door latch. Hope this helps... Please post back for further assistance.
