Re: Won'r run unless I push the door

Probably a broken latch assembly.. UNPLUG UNIT!! Remove inner door panel to access. Also check for broken tabs on onside of console where latch assembly rests.

Door latch

The safety latch needs adjustment or is loose or worn out if you open the door on door side top you would be able to feel the the safety switch with your finger click on and off it should click very easy if not replace it make sure Dw is off or disconnected.good luck

Asko 20.1 won't stop pumping unless I turn it off at the wall switch.

this happened to my D3111 and, sure enough, there was a split in the water outlet hose and the water overflow raised the polystyrene float block.
6 months later th same symptoms occurred but the inner base was dry. I took off the lower front panel under the door and found the water level (3 terminal) microswitch had burnt out, probably from running too long. Easy to replace if you can hunt down the $2 switch (brand name Zippy, 6 AMP)

Won't run unless i push ******* the drawer

On the right side of each drawer, near the top is an optical sensor (light pipe) that reflects infrared light of the side panel to indicate proper door closure. I f the unit is not aligned/installed properly the sensor will not sense proper door closure.

Ge gas oven ran self clean door won't unlock door locked flashing lock motor running continuously

if your motor is running continuously, the door is locking and unlocking. catch it when unlocked, and unplug the range. then disconnect the power wires from the lock motor. this will allow you to use the oven while you get a new lock assembly and replace the one you have. should be fine after that.

Hello, welcome to FixYa. If you can provide the model number (usually on inside of door frame or tub frame around door opening) and make/brand name, I'll see what I can find for you. It does sound like a door switch, but I'll need to clarify the make & model before moving forward. Regards, Macmarkus :)

Dish washer that does not pump out the water on it"s final cycle

I had this same problem and after having the repairman over to our house several times and having the circuit board changed, I figured it out on my own...

It turns out that the pressure created from the steam during the water heating stage (HO) was pushing on the door latch just enough to prevent the motor from running properly. Because the door wasn't latched completely, the water wouldn't drain and the dishwasher would go to the "Drying" cycle without ever pumping the water out of the basin.

I adjusted the levelling on the DW and that helped, but I'm still not sure that the problem is fixed. We may need a new latch assembly.

To test this, when the DW stops running at any time, push on the door. If the motor kicks back on, this is the problem.

LG LDS5811BB Dishwasher

Some of the LG LDS5811 had problems with the wiring harness in the door panel. This is nothing to mess with unless you have disconnected the DW from power.
You can open the door panel by removing the screws around the inside edge of the DW. Or, better yet, firmly but politely contact LG service and tell them you are aware of LDS5811 dishwashers having these symptoms being caused by _melting_ wires in inside the door panel. This is true and even if the DW is out of warranty, LG should fix this problem at no cost to you.
Good Luck!
