SOURCE: Miele Dishwasher door release problem

I switched the dishwasher off at the mains and then back on again. At this point the plastic arm started making a noise like it was trying to retract so I pulled the door to help it along. The door opened and the arm fully retracted - much to my relief.

SOURCE: neff integrated dishwasher

there are some screws inside the door, around the edge. These would be the first to undo then I think the door would have o be pulled up slightly to relaease.

SOURCE: adjusting the door on a neff dishwasher

I have the same problem with my newly installed Miele integrated dishwasher. The door does not stay open when you are trying to load dishes. I heard that there is an adjustable internal mechanism to adjust the tension on the door. But, I am still working on solving my problem.

Hi, this is an integrated dishwasher and with the kitchen door attached won't open fully.


Maria, adding the door to the front of machine has increased over all thickness to what was existing, washer was not designed for the extra thickness and will catch on lower part of washer.
You may have a few choices, shorten added door panel, taper bottom of panel to allow operation, or remove added panel.

How do I fix a dishwasher


It sounds like you have a broken wire. You might also open up the dishwasher junction box (unplug the dishwasher first), and make sure the wire nuts are tight.

Elctrolux dishwasher won't start, display won't light and it randomly beeps


Check continuity of the 4 small wires that connect to the control panel to the control board. They seem to break where they flex for the door to open and close.

Deactivate childlock on fully integrated neff dishwasher


If door won't close and you don't have a child-lock, just push the door closed a lot harder than you normally would - NEFF manual says to do that, and it worked for me! I think it just forces it to engage and 'releases' the catch, as after that it closed with just normal pressure applied.

The door on my miele G481 built in dishwasher won't stay open it's really annoying that it keeps popping up when I'm trying to load.


hi,

what you need to do is slack off the spring tension on the door hinges. each side of the unit at the base on the plinth there is a screw with a spring symbol next to it. turn this anti clockwise to reduce the spring tension.

Hope this helps

hi,

you need to adjust the door tension springs which is by a screw each side of the hinges on the plinth of the unit at the front. There is a symbol of a spring to show you which screws to release. do them evenly and the door will not spring up,

Hotpoint BF1620 Integrated dishwasher not working


Lets try the following hope this works

1.- unplug the appliance, isolate it from the electric supply.
2.- Remove the kitchen unit plinth and check inside the inspection panels below the door to see if there is water in the base.

If there is, sponge it out and then try the machine again.

Belling integrated dishwasher not working properly


are you sure it is the board at fault, not justv the door catch? (as the door wont open). If the dishwasher believes it has just finished a cycle and the door has not yet been opened it will not let you change the program.
I had this same problem so I hooked an allen key around the back of the white door catch and pulled it into the unlocked position with a pair of pliers. Has worked fine since but every now and then the catch will pop back into the locked position when the door is opened.

Put back smeg oven door


Yeah I was stumped with this for a short time as it isnt imediately obvious.

The bottom of the two brackets has a flip up catch, place these in the upright position and with some force hook the upper bracket into these catches (please ensure you keep your face and hands away from the direction of the spring)

Once you have the two brackets held open offer up the door at exactly 45 degrees (notice the notch on the underside of both lower brackets) locate this notch on the door hinge hole studs.

Once this is done and your certain it is in the correct postion lower the door from 45 degrees to 90 degrees, put some pressure on the door slightly past 90 degrees and carefully fold down the flip up catches that are holding the upper brackets.
