Leak from white plastic box under right side of door

Apparent float mechanism of some sort as there is a small plastic plunger in this that easily moves up and down where the leak is coming from. More than a cup of warter comes out of this with each load of dishes washed.

Check the seal around the pipe the plunger runs in. The other thing is to make sure the switch cuts off water fill BEFORE the level gets to the top of that pipe. This could be defective switch or adjustment of it.

The water level should be well below the top of the pipe when filled.

If the switch has gotten wet, it may be defective due to internal damage.

Driver side door won't close. small white plastic piece in door latch, keeps hitting something and won't catch and close


Take a flat head screw driver and with some effort move that little white piece to the left or right. Give it a little spray with some wd40 or some sort of penitrating oil. If you have trouble moving this piece with the screwdriver try lifting the door handle while you pry at the piece

Dishwasher is beeping every 20 seconds, but not turning on.


There is most likely a problem with one of the door switches. Right where the door latches to the tub there is a small white plunger in the opening of the door which gets pushed down to trip two switches within the door. Disconnect power to the dishwasher and take out the phillips head screws holding the inner and outer door panels together. Check out the plastic cover over the door switches to make sure it has not warped due to heat. The cover is held on by four plastic tabs. The white plunger has a spring on the bottom of it, so watch out for it so you won't lose it. The flat side of the white plunger faces the dishwasher's tub.

Ice chute frosts up??


This is caused by a rusted plunger and solenoid . To replace them ( in a kit pt # WR62X10055 ) , remove the top plastic hinge cover of the freezer door , and disconnect the plug there . This removes power to the door . Use a small screwdriver or butter knife , under the dispenser control panel , and pry outward . Disconnect the 3 plugs . Remove the 4 screws on each corner of the white dispenser switch body , and slide foreward . The solenoid and plunger are at the top right , held on by 3 screws . Replace with the kit . Cleaning the plunger will not help . The kit needs to be replaced . ( note .. when reinstalling the white switch holder , it slides back in , on a slight track , so the dispenser board will pop back in flush . When re-installing the dispenser board , put the top in first , then pop the bottom back in place ) . Don't forget to plug the door back in .

Door adjar light on.


Spray WD-40 on all door lock jams including the rear gate door. Problem Solve...

Problem is a sticky door ajar switch sensor on the door latch itself inside the door. These particular switches are poorly designed and use a brass plunger in a white metal body. When moisture gets to it over time, the white metal body of the switch corrodes causing the brass plunger to stick in the depressed or open position which makes the electronic control module think the door is ajar when its not. Spraying WD-40 in the latch mechanism where the switch is located may work for a bit but when the WD-40 evaporates, the switch will stick in the open position again causing the same problem. The best solution is to buy a new switch and put it in. You can try and recondition the old one - I did but I don't know how long it will stay OK. The switch is located on the inside of the door mounted on the door latching mechanism. You have to take the door panel off and peel away the insulator plastic to get at it from the inside. Remove the latch by removing the 3 torx screws that hold the latch in place. You will also need to disconnect the door lock and door handle actuator rods that are connected to the latch to allow you to move it up to the door opening so you can work on it. The switch has a 2 wire latched connector attached to it. Remove it. The switch itself has an orange plastic housing and is easy to recognize. The switch comes off by twisting it clockwise to release the snap connection. You will notice the brass plunger is stuck in. Best fix is to replace it with a new one. If you want to try reconditioning the old one because the dealer will want more money for a new one than the truck is worth, than spray some WD-40 on the plunger and wait 15-20 mins for it to penetrate. Grab the brass plunger tip with pliers and pull it out. Push it in and out till it moves freely. The plunger is spring loaded so if its loosened up you only need to push it in and it should pop back out on its own. If you want to verify the switch is working correctly, use an ohm meter. Plunger in is open. Plunger out is closed. Once you have loosened up the plunger and the switch is operating correctly, use white grease or lithium grease on the mechanism and switch to stop any future corrosion problems.

Good luck (remember comment and rated this).

Frost building up in ice maker exit shoot and


Look into the dispensor , and see if the door flap is closing , or letting warm air in which will cause the frost buildup . If not closing completely , remove the top cover on the freezer door hinge , and unplug the plug . This will remove power to the door . Use a small screwdriver , and insert under the freezer door dispensor control board , and pry outward . Remove the 3 plugs on the board . Next , remove the 4 screws holding the white dispensor cover , and slide outward . At the top right , you will see a solenoid and plunger , which control the door flap . Usually , this plunger rusts on the solenoid . Replace both , the solenoid and plunger ( come together in kit ) Pt # WR62X10055 . Re-assemble in reverse .

Tablet not dissolving, dishes not clean


Hi Trina. I wish I was nearby as I would come over and take care of this problem for you.

There are two possible reasons for the situation as you describe it: 1. Water-inlet valve The water-inlet valve lets water enter the machine. If this valve is defective, you need to completely replace it. It's usually located behind the lower access panel on the left or right side. It's the device with the main water line (usually copper) from the house, a rubber tube to the dishwasher, and two wires attached to it.
2. Float switch The float switch is a small electrical switch that's located right below the dishwasher "floor." Above the switch, on the inside of the dishwasher, is a plastic cylinder that floats up as water fills the dishwasher. If this switch is defective, or if the plastic float gets caught or trapped in the raised position, the water can't enter the dishwasher. If the float switch is defective, you need to replace it.

If you are mechanically inclined you can repair either of these but if you are not you will have to hire it done. Now that you know it is one of two problems you can tell the repairman ahead of time and get a price on the repair. Then shop around for the best price.

2000 Dodge Caravan Rear Door Latch


I had the same problem and fixed it using the following steps. I am not an expert or even very mechanically inclined, just desperate to get this fixed without spending any money. This was done on a 1996 Dodge Caravan. Similar steps should apply to a number of years of the Caravans and Voyagers. 

Two people will make removing the panel easier. To do this, you'll need a phillips screwdriver, penetrating lubricant, and pliers. 

First, if you cannot open the door at all: There is a small plastic disc plugging a hole just above the latch on the inside. Pop out that disk, and use a screwdriver to lift the latch mechanism. It should not take a great deal of force to move the latch. When the latch moves, push the door and it should open. 

1. Remove the plastic panel on the inside of the van. You need to remove the handle and several screws on the perimeter of the door. 
2. Disconnect the interior door lights by gently pulling the wiring harness (two of these). 
3. Looking at the door from the interior, there is a small electronic plunger mechanism on the right side with an "accordion" (this is the electric lock). There is a rod that goes from the to the middle of the door, just above the lock mechanism. Another rod goes from the key lock to the latch. This rod, threaded on one end, snaps into a small bracket on the latch. It may need to be snapped back in. There may also be a rubbery/tar-like sticker near the locking mechanisms that can be removed (it can interfere with some of the moving parts). 
4. Manually operate the plunger on the electric lock several times using pliers. Mine was extremely stiff. It should move the rod at least a full inch. 
5. Spray lubricant on the latch, the back of the key lock, and the back of the exterior handle. Also spray lubricant into the key lock itself (where the key goes). Do NOT spray lubricant on the electronic lock mechanism or plunger. 
6. Just above the latch, there is a small hole (only about 1/8" around). Carefully and liberally spray lubricant into that hole in every direction (this is where the rods from the key lock, electric lock, and latch meet). There is a white plastic post that comes out through another nearby hole. Spray lubricant liberally into that hole, too. 
7. Again, manually operate the plunger on the electric lock several times using pliers. It should be considerably smoother to operate. 
8. Put your key into the key lock and pull it out several times. 
9. Spray lubricant into the key lock again, then carefully operate the lock with the key. If it didn't work or was stiff before, it should operate much more smoothly. Operate the electric locks several times. 
10. When operating the lock, you should see the plunger on the electric lock move to its extents (at least an inch). Watch it when using a key and using the electric lock. 
11. Check the movements of the rod and plunger when operating the lock, and the movements of the latch when operating the handle (when unlocked). If anything is still really stiff, use some more lubricant and operate the lock and handle again. 
12. When reassembling the door panel, remember to plug in the two wiring harnesses for the interior lights. 

I hope this helps!
