THE LATCH IS READING THAT THE DOOR IS CLOSED BUT I CAN OPEN THE DOOR WHILE THE DISHWASHER IS IN CYCLE. WITH THE SPRING INDISE THE DOOR BEING LOCKED IT WONT EVENT LET ME FULLY SHUT THE DOOR! ANY HELP.


Hello friend, thank you for your post!
From what you have described the spring from the latch is broken inside of the door and you are unable to close your Frigidaire dishwasher. You would need to disassemble the dishwasher in order to replace the latch or spring. This needs to be done by a professional technician as improper disassembly could results in personal injury. I hope this information is helpful to you. -Matt

How do I replace the door lock on a Samsung WF350ANP washing machine?


This YouTube video does a pretty good job showing how to take apart a Samsung front-loader. The section you want - the door latch assembly - is 3'44 into the main video.

Reapairclinic.com, who posted the video, have clear photographs of this part here:

Hope this helps!

Canon a1100is camera battery door replacement


Kurt- I have successfully completed a d-i-y battery door replacement on my Canon A1100IS, and I make no claims about being an "expert." My training was watching u-tube videos of guys disassembling digital cameras (other models). Here's how to open the case on the A1100is, which is not really much different than opening the case on most any compact digital camera.
Using a size #0000 phillips screwdriver (Sears sells a set of 6 minis--slotted and phillips--for $10), I removed the nine screws from the side and bottom of the case plus one inside the mini-usb cover and the one inside the battery compartment.
Then, I gently worked the front and rear of the case apart (the top of the case halves have two snap clips that hold them together. Unlike some cameras, the A1100IS does not have any flexible cable straps between its front and rear covers.
With the case halves removed, I then used a tweezers to move the straight end of the hinge spring out of its original place next to the tripod socket. That released spring pressure on the hinge and I could then easily remove the hinge pin with the tweezers.
Then, it's simply a matter of placing the replacement door's hinge/spring combo in the proper location and inserting the hinge pin to hold it there. I purchased a new door from Canon for $8.42 plus shipping). Then, I used the tweezers to position the straight hinge spring end in the slot next to the tripod socket.
The only thing left was to wipe my fingerprints off of the LCD screen and then gently replace the front and rear case halves--snapping the case's top together and then replacing the nine screws.

Apparently the springs on my door are either not connected or they need to be adjusted. If I were to open the door and not hold it with my hands, it would immedaitely fall wide open. No tension exists on...


I had the same problem on my Dishwasher . There should be 2 screws underneath the top front part of the dishwasher. They hold the unit in place. Easy to get to. Open the door and look up. Pull out the 2 screws that are screwed into the underneath of the front cabinet.

This should allow you to pull (slide) out the unit just enough to see the springs ( aprox 1 ft ) on both sides on the bottom of unit. Inspect the springs. Mine had broke on one side where it clips into the holder.

I just inserted the spring in the proper tension hole to match the other side . I spun it around 1 turn as to hold it in place and then connected the top of spring it its proper place. This gave equal tension on both springs and the door works fine now.

Eventually I will buy a new spring and replace it but at least it works fine for now.

If even one spring has been disconnected the door will fall with out any tension what so ever. I'm guessing maybe just one spring has either come out or broke where it clips into the hole.

Replace boot gasket


Hello, Remove the door hinges and plastic covers on the unused hinge screw holes on the opposite side of the door opening (door is reversible, so there are places to mount hinges left and right). Front panel will now snap out at top and lift off lower spring clips. One screw on each side will now release top panel and it will hinge up. Prop up with broom handle or something. Now you can get at everything. Rubber gasket is held onto drum with a cable loop and very strong spring. It rolls off the lip easily to disassemble but is VERY difficult to get back on without special tools or at least two people. Door side of rubber gasket is easy in comparison with rubber tabs inserted into slots and working the gasket into a groove. Hose clamp at bottom of rubber gasket to connect drain hose.

Thanks

Door spring broke on Cruisinart CTO 350 series Toaster Oven


I had same problem with my cuisinar 350 series broken door spring. After disassembly found a broken extension spring measuring about 3/16 dia.,by 6.5 inches long.Spring was broken about a third down. I lifted ,or bended a loop and a halve up from each broken section and joined the two sections together. lifting each loop of the spring is tricky at first, requires a small screwdriver to be inserted between loop to be lifted and then gently bent the loop with needlenose pliers.
Not knowing how to disassemble the unit I had a hard time assembling the unit back.
I would start by taking off the screws holding the front black backlite first, then the main cover.
The main stainless steel cover does not have to be removed completely, by just gently unbending
the cover I was able to access the spring for removal.
Lots of luck

LG WM2032HW gasket replacement


I have changed these without disassembling the unit. Just remove the spring from the gasket, then peel back the gasket to remove the inner spring. This is the easy part, getting the inner spring back on is a pain in the neck, but it can be done. The spring will give you problems either way. Good Luck

The door will not latch


The latch head (with hooklike projections) have a spring to keep it pulled down. If the latch head can be easily pushed up and falls back freely, then the monting tab on the back of the latch head is broken and it will have to be glued or replaced. The new part is better. To get to the door screws inside, you have to remove the choke cover, as shown in the photo. You can order parts for Sharp models from Tritronics at http://www.wehaveparts.com.
