Question about Maytag 24 in. MDB5651A Built-in Dishwasher

Open Question

Door on Dishwasher opens too far!

Need to Remove door to check for broken hinge on either door or tub. The door slants down toward floor when opened - apparently someone accidently fell on it when it was in the open position and now the rack wants to roll off the door to the floor. Fixable?

SOURCE: Door opens beyond position parellel to floor

Hi dougisommer

I'm Harvey the Master Plumber.

Your question is: The door springs seem fine but when we open the door and wheel out the lower dish rack, the door drops further and the rack rolls down to the floor. Reading other postings, it seems like a good name for this is a broken "door catcher." How can I fix this?

You may need a sevice tech for this. The 'door catchers' on the sides of the unit can only be accessed after removing. Not a job for the inexperienced.

Feel free contact me again!

Door malfunction


a door spring or the linkage that goes to the door is loose or broken on one side. pull the dishwasher out of the cabinet partway so you can see the where the door hinges are. you should be able to see what the problem is. compare both sides, one will be ok the other will not be tied to the spring.

Broken door spring on kitchenaid dishwasher


Hello,

Please read our safety information before attempting any testing or repairs. Before repairing the door springs, unplug the dishwasher or shut off the power at the fuse box or breaker panel to avoid an electrical shock hazard.
The door opens and closes with the aid of springs. If the springs (or the cables that connect them on some dishwashers) break, the door will drop open hard. The door will also be heavier when closing. If the door drops open, it may also bend the door hinges out of shape resulting in a door that does not close properly and possibly leaks.

When replacing the springs or cables, all of them should be replaced at the same time.
To access the door springs and cables remove the lower panel located beneath the door. The panel is usually held in place with two screws either above or below the panel. It may be necessary to first open the door to the dishwasher to get to the screws over the panel, then close the door to remove the panel.
There are two common types of spring assemblies. One type connects the springs from a hook on the dishwasher cabinet of to a tang on the door hinge .

I ordered and received a replacement door for my 2002 spacemaker ge microwave. The lady I spoke with said I would be able to install it myself. I figured there would be directions in the box explaining...


HELLO.

Below is the solution to replace your microwave door.

Unplug the oven from the outlet and/or shut off the gas valve. Open the old door completely and unlock the hinges by pushing the hinge out toward you and down toward the door. Slightly close the door and lift the door up and toward you.


Install the new door. Make sure the wall oven door hinges are aligned to go into the rectangular wall oven slots. Place the hinges into the slots. The hinges should "catch" on the slots comfortably.


Ensure the door is fully opened and push the hinge locks into an upright position. The two hinge locks should rest on top of the two hinges that are inserted in the wall oven slots.


Close the door and open it several times to make sure the door is properly opening and closing. Replug the oven back into the outlet and/or turn the gas valve back on.

Thanks.

I have a KitchenAid KUDS01FLSS2 and was wondering if it is normal for the door to fall open... what I mean is the door requires to be supported when opening. Otherwise, the door will swing down and almost...


Yes indeed that sounds exactly like the door springs being broken. The springs are fairly easy to replace, what needs to be done to replace the springs is remove the lowest service panel/kick plate and hook the springs on the tub support frame/leg and the other end goes on a notch in the door hinges. The part number for the spring is 8270182 they could be purchased at your local appliance parts store or online at;
searspartsdirect.com
repairclinic.com
apdepot.com
apwagner.com
midwestapplianceparts.com


Even though only one may be broke its advisable to replace both at the same time.

Good luck,i hope i have been able to help you fix your dishwasher,

I have the same problem. The springs look intact. Maybe some stepped on the door when it was opened and it stretched the springs. I'm going to replace them and see what happens

Hotpoint BS 21 fan oven Broken door hinge


Pull the door down as far as it will go, and at the lower end of the hinges, there you should see what looks like 2 round discs, with a step cut out, rotate the discs with a scewdriver as far as they will go,then close the door and pull it towards you, the door should then pull off.
Replace both hinges, not just the one ,or it will close unevenly.
Slot the hinges back into the hinge slots, pull the door down, rotate the disc back to their original setting, and that should be it.
Plz rate this solution. Thanks.

Door still leaks after replacing bottom seal


the bottom seal isn't actually a seal, rather it serves as a splashguard. I had the same problem with the same model and started by replacing what I thought was a seal located at the bottom of the door.
Check if the screws on the top half of the pump (located under the lower spray arm which needs removed first) have become loose. The screws were barely in the threads which caused a stream of water towards the door and leaked between the splashguard and bottom edge of the tub and onto the floor.0d084cc.jpg
