SOURCE: my KitchenAid dishwashers door will not stay shut.

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. :-)

My KitchenAid Dishwasher door won't stay closed. It keeps popping open after a few seconds.


I experienced the same problem after my tension cables broke. The door fell open with such force that it bent the hinges a little. If you've replaced the tension strings (which you should do every 5-8 years) then you don't have to replace the latch. I did and it didn't solve the problem.
Here's the solution:
Put a towel at the bottom of each side of the door by the hinge.
Push the door closed a couple of times to bend back the hinges.
Remove the towels and you're back in action.
Good luck

Door doesn't self close on Kitchenaid Superba frig


The lower hinge on each door may have a door closing cam. It raises the door up ¼ inch when opening and this assist in closing the door. If it’s wore out and doesn’t work the door may not seal and the gasket can be damaged. Watch the operation of the door to see if it rises up when opened.

Leave the door shut and let the magnetic gasket hold the door in place. Put something between the bottom of the door and the floor to hold it in case it slips.
Remove the bracket holding the pin and hinge assembly taking note of order of removal of parts. Slide new cams on. You probably need two.

Kitchenaid Hinge tensioner


It is aall exposed on the outside of the unit. Discconecct the water, remove the two set screws attaching the unit to the counter, slide it out and you will see the damage left or right. The white plastci piece slips off over the metal clip and you re-attach the string, apply pressure to the spring and slip the platci piece back over the metal and you are done. You will spend more time removing the unit than repairing it.

Ksrg25fkss kitchenaid refrig door needs height adjusted up


Have you looked at the mounting bracket for the lower hinge to see if it can be adjusted up. If not and there is as mush as 1/4 to 1/2" adjustment i suggest that you get a spacer with the inside diameter the same as the hinge pin or a tiny bit bigger and cut it to the size you need , then support the door up to a point that the bottom pin is not bound, remove the lower bracket and hinge pin, put the sleeve you cut on the hinge pin and reinstall the bracket.

Noisy Door


The noise is comming from the counter balance spring and rope system. You will need to pull the unit out from the counter and then you will see the springs. You will have one on each side near the bottom of the floor. Sometimes a lil grease or PAM spray will quiet them down.

Good Luck!

Door noise


Hello,

Common issue with this dishwasher. Easy fix though!! KitchenAid uses a nylon string that connects the hinges to the springs located along the bottom edges of the dishwasher. I had to pull mine out to perform this service. The nylon string seems to dry out and vibrates as the door opens and closes. All that needs to be done is put some Vaseline or other appropriate lubrication all over the nylon string. Especially where it passes through the roller and stationary guide. That will take care of any squeeking or grinding when opening or closing the door. Be careful as your door will now open just like it did when it was new. Now if I can only figure out how to keep my door from popping open during wash cycles!!!
