Amana dishwasher ADB1500AWB -- broken door handle

Amana dishwasher ADB1500AWB -- door has been difficult to open for several weeks (could squeeze handle but latch wouldn't disengage easily). Finally today the latch broke altogether; door will no longer latch closed. Is this something we can order a part for and fix ourselves, and if so how do we go about this? Thanks!

HI,

Please check whether the plastic pins are broken.

I removed the inner door panel and found the handle broken. It has integrally molded plastic pins that provide a pivot for the handle to push against the release assembly. These were broken off. Also noticed that there were some small fingers molded on the back of the switch panel that were snapped off. I'm not sure what these are for and I can't see how they are needed for the latch operation. My hunch is that they aid in positioning the handle during factory assembly. I'm NOT going to buy a new switch panel to replace these!

I don't know why the handle broke but it did so in stages. I think one pin broke, and then everything else broke because of added misalignment and stress. The good news: a new handle only costs about $10 and I'll have it in a couple of days. Thanks

Hello, welcome to FixYa.

I understand by reading your post which indicates it is a Amana ADB1500AWB dishwasher (built by Maytag as you may or may not know) you appear to have a concern with...in your words,


"makes a loud grinding and squealing noise that freaks out my wife... Dishes are still clean"

First and most importantly by far is reassure your wife it's gonna be O.K. ;-)

Based on this it sounds like something is either loose or broke or jemmed in the chopper/impeller sump area.

**turn off the power to the unit before performing any service please...safety first**

If you think are capable, I would investigate beneath the filters and see if perehaps a piece of glass, bone etc is against the chopper blade causing the noise and we can go from there.

I'll watch for your reply and try and help going forward in any manner I can of course. Thank you.

Regards,

Macmarkus :)

PDW8100 Dishwasher went through cycle several times, but I am unable to open the door. Is there a way to get it open? Thanks, Barbara


Hi,

When your dishwasher door has a problem, check these:

Latch
Springs
Hinges
Door seal
Latch The latch on many dishwashers is adjustable. If your door is easy to close but difficult to latch, adjust the latch to let the door close more easily. If you can't see any way to adjust the latch, yours may be fixed in a certain position. Check for other reasons for the latching problem.

If the latch has worn out in a way that makes it impossible for you to close the door properly, you probably need to replace the latch.

Springs Your dishwasher has two springs that counterbalance the weight of the door. If either or both of these are broken, the door feels quite heavy and you need to replace both springs.

Hinges The hinges are important to the door closing properly. If they're bent or deformed, you probably need to replace them. Once bent, only rarely can they be straightened well enough.

Door seal If your dishwasher is new--or if you have just replaced a door seal--the door may be difficult to latch for a week or two. If the tightness persists, though, try adjusting the latch, if it's adjustable. If it's not adjustable, there's probably nothing you can do immediately. But try running the dishwasher on the highest heat cycle to help the seal conform to the door. Otherwise, the seal should compress over time.

Goodluck..

Amana Sofsound 1 door will not open


You will be able to open the door by unplugging machine, remove top cover and look down to door. YOu will see a cable running from door latch up towards the motor.

This cable will need adjusting.

Either that or the door latch is broken/scratched.

Hope this helps?

Door Latch does not open door


I threw caution to the winds and removed the outer panel of the appliance. The plastic latching handle practically fell out--it was broken. Called all local parts suppliers--none had any parts in stock for this dishwasher. Called the manufacturer, who had a part listed on his computer at a distant location. Ordered it, paid for it, and was assured the part would be received within 2 days. Incidentally, you can't order just a replacement latching handle. It is included as part of a component.

Cant open the door


Under the unit you can access the leveling mechanism for the legs. Try adjusting the levelers so the unit is lowered. Do so a little at a time and try to keep the unit leveled from left to right as you lower it. This may take tension off of the latch and help you get the door open.
