Re: dishwasher DI450 Door

I guess that the weight of a door front would keep it open?

Re: dishwasher DI450 Door

Hi chrissy99

Not sure what do you mean by keeping the door to stay open. Well if you want to keep the door open during operation , identify the mechanism that triggers the on button .

In my dishwasher to check if it function properly , I keep a small wedge / strip near the handle / button which opens the door.

My kitchenaid DW kudc101xwho will not stay on. Runs a few min and shuts off. Is this the control panel or the timer?

May be this is the reasons.

a) May be your door latch is opening due to pressure inside the dishwasher. The door latch opens and the dishwasher will stop. Quite common problem on KITCHENAID. KitchenAid door is a heavier door compared to sister product WHIRLPOOL. If door latch problem then has to change the door lock along with the top latch.

My maytag dishwasher will run for a short then stop running, I'll push on the door the machine will run again then will stop again

your door is not staying latched.. imagine if it did stay running and the door came completely open, what a mess that would be. so there are safety switches that help stop the washing if the door opens. not too sure how to fix your exact washer.. but the problem is the door not staying closed. maybe you can jamm the door shut while it is running? its not the best answer, but probably the most free way to fix it

Dishwasher is giving a CL code when trying to push the start button, door is closed.

you need a new door switch. this was a very common problem with these machines when they first came out. The dishwasher may be closed but one of the switches is staying open so the computer things the door is open.

Soap dispenser cover latch will not stay in the hole. So now the soap holder will not stay closed.

Dishwashers use Bi-Metal strip to allow the dispenser to open/close. This strip when heat up causes the soap door spring to open up the dispenser. If this strip is not heated doesn't allow the door to open. The strip may not be getting 120V or maybe disconnected. Newer (plastic liner) dishwashers use a wax motor to open the soap dispenser. The plunger inside the wax motor slowly moves and pushes the plunger and door open. And, if this wax motor doesn't receive 120 volts, then it'll not work. Please check the voltage to the wax motor/Bi-metal strip; also inspect the connections to these. Hope this helps...

Soap door will not open

Make sure there is nothing in the way of the soap door when you close the dishwasher.
Close the dishwasher door slowly and look down in side with a flashlight, are any of the rack brackets or silverware basket directly in front of the dispenser door.
Take a look and let me know.

Kitchenaid dishwasher door does not stay up in the open position.

On each side of the dishwasher, near the ground, is a nylon cord and pulley apparatus that keeps the door from flopping down when opened. It probably needs some adjustment of the tension on the cord.

The detergent dispenser sliding door will not stay closed

it is a very tiny plastic "tooth" that let open automatically the door when the washing program selected reach the opening point, the only good solution I suggest is to add the detergent after the first hot wash (just open the main door and drop it in!)...of course the best is to change this door locker with a new one...good luck!

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.
