Miele dishwasher door latch

Was trying to diagnose rcd tripping, so to diagnose it I tripped door latch so it would run with door open - now latch won't trip back and so dishwasher runs but door won't latch close - how do I get it back to normal position? It's a small plastic part that engages with a rectangular tongue on the dishwasher frame that has a rectangular cutout.

My dishwasher runs but door is in locked position. it will now run with door open and the door wont close/lock


It sounds like your door latch got tripped into the closed position (even though your door is open). You MIGHT be able to use a screwdriver or some tool to be able to pull the latch lever back out to the open position, but it might also be necessary to take the door apart to get to the latch to be able to reset it. The real problem is that if it happened before, it will probably happen again. So the real solution is to replace the latch assembly.

Dishwasher is tripping RCD, can it be repaired?


not necessary-- yet-- to buy a new unit
tripping the rcd is an indication of earth leakage which could amount to water in the wall plug across pins, moisture across the power board, water in the motor, faulty heater element
what you need is an accredited electrician to run tests on the system to find the reason for the earth leakage that is tripping the rcd
the rcd works from microvolts and operates in nano seconds to prevent electrocution of the operator
testing before buying may save heaps of cash

The latch is tripped and the door won't close


You need to reset to latch by hand - use a small straight slot and pop the lever back up to the open position

Panasonic microwave, when unit is plugged in, unit is ok, when opening the door the RCD in the consumer box trips, close the door and reset the RCD power stays on try to run the microwave, and the RCD...


If it goes dead or blows the breaker when you plug it in or open or close the door, then there's a problem with a door switch or door switch mount.

Even though a door switch clicks, it may still be bad inside. Its continuity must be checked.

Door switch or mount trouble can be caused by slamming the door or by opening the door while it's cooking without hitting the Stop pad first.

There are plastic mounts inside the microwave which hold the door switches and onto which the door latches lock when you close the door.

The screws on these mounts may be loose. If they get too loose, the switches will not be activated properly.

Sometimes it's a broken tab on the switch holder, allowing the switch to rotate just out of position. Other times, it's a broken tab on the switch holder, allowing the switch to rotate just out of position. This tab can be hard to see, since it is under the bottom edge of the switch.

If you or someone you know decide to look into it, we have critical information on safety, disassembly and door switches at our site, and our link is at our listing here on FixYa: http://tinyurl.com/yzjozk

Dishwasher tripping fuse box


Has the door got any heavier, as mine started tripping the electrics when a spring broke and short circuited the connections.
f so you will have to get the spring out, from the underneath is best and replace it if you want the door to work correctly again. On mine the second one went a month later.
