SOURCE: KitchenAid Dishwasher Door Pops open during cycle

Hello,

I have had the same problem since our KitchenAid was new. The only solution so far is to try bending the metal door latch down slightly. You will know when you have bent it too far as the door will no longer close. Just bend it back up slightly. I used to work in the appliance industry and got the service man to admit that the door latch has been an issue and there is no real fix. I have looked at the new KA dishwashers and they have since redesigned the door latch. I am going to see if the new latch can be retrofitted into my Kuds01FLSS6 dishwasher. I will post on here if indeed it works.

Good luck
Tom

The door hinges are spring-loaded. One or both hinges have failed.
Items 2 and 3 at the link below are the parts that are needed.

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 KitchenAid Dishwasher door won't stay closed. It keeps popping open after a few seconds.


I experienced the same problem after my tension cables broke. The door fell open with such force that it bent the hinges a little. If you've replaced the tension strings (which you should do every 5-8 years) then you don't have to replace the latch. I did and it didn't solve the problem.
Here's the solution:
Put a towel at the bottom of each side of the door by the hinge.
Push the door closed a couple of times to bend back the hinges.
Remove the towels and you're back in action.
Good luck

KitchenAid KUDSO1FLSS5 - door pops open


I am an experienced techician and have tried all these solutions in the past sometimes at no avail. But replacing the tub which has a limited lifetime warranty along with hinge arms will solve the issue. This has such a margional clearance I can never see anything visible causing the door to pop open

KitchenAid KCMS145J Microwave Door Latch Broke


I downloaded a parts schematic of the door latch assembly and thought I would determine the broken part, order a replacement and install same. As soon as I started to remove the shell of the unit to get at the latch assembly, I discovered non-standard fasteners are used. My wife advised me to stop and take it to a service center because she did not want me to mess up the containment of the radiation! Thanks for your interest. MB

Kithenaid dishwasher door pops open


Your door latch may just be getting weak and the temperature and air pressure differentiation when the cycle is complete (it's hot inside) may be popping the door. If you have had the door seal replaced recently that may also be a factor, they can take awhile to settle in.

KitchenAid Dishwasher Door Pops open during cycle


The problem seems to be the loosening of the screws that hold the interior stainless steel skin to the door frame--not the latch.

With the door in the open position you should find a total of twelve screws (5 on each side and 2 on top at each side of the latch). The screws have a particular type of head which may require a trip to the hardware (its a $1,000 dishwasher take the time to get the right screwdriver). They are called TORX screws the size on my dishwasher was a T 15. These type of screw heads were designed to fit automated torque drivers at the factory that set the screws to the proper tension. So some care should be given when you retighten them. Turn until the screw is snug and there no movement of the inner door skin but don't over tighten. Giving it that extra 1/4 turn can be enough to strip the screw out and create a bigger problem.

Yes--you shouldn't have to be doing this to a KitchenAid appliance that cost this much--but I suspect that this will become a feature of periodic maintenance. The heating and cooling generates enough movement that overtime these screws work themselves out. My wife who was the once to make the right diagnosis noticed that the screws at the bottom were almost entirely out.
