    Thank you Ben....I have since fixed my latch.....you are exactly right with your direction. I realized after writing this letter that I needed to remove all the screws to do the job. Works again that's what's important.....saved me a few hundred for a new dishwasher. Keep passing along your great advice!!!!

The latch is fairly simple to replace. There are several screws around the inside of the door that hold the inside panel in place. You then will be able to slide the panel out of the way (it is attached by wires).

You will then be able to access the latch it is not attached by any screws, but there is a wire harness on each side of the latch. There are two clips that you need to hold out of the way and slide the black harnesses off the two pins on the latch.

Then simply replace the latch and close up the door and your problem is fixed.

    The latch is probably a W10130694. This is an appalling design, of which Maytag should be thoroughly ashamed. It has been revamped over the years, but I still reckon on putting in a new one each year (I now buy them two at a time, so I always have a spare spare; that tells you something about its reliability). My spare parts store tells me that Maytag is still using this latch on their latest dishwashers, so if you are a Maytag enthusiast better learn how to fix it! Luckily it's easy to replace, and you can save a $100 service call by buying and installing it yourself ; the assembly costs less than $30. ( You will need a Torx wrench for the screws.)

When I tried to open the dishwasher, the plastic piece that you push up to release the door went straight up and now stuck. I can't open the door to even try to fix it. Is there a way to pop the plastic latch back down? It's a Maytag.

Kenmore quick touck microwave, door latch hard to open & shut


If your want to start the easy path, get a Q-tip and some light weight grease and lightly grease the door-switch levers inside the door latch holes and see if that solves your problem. If not, then you will have to remove the cover, and likely you will find the door switch assembly and it's metal mounting support are bent on something of an angle - the switch assembly should be at 90 degrees to the front of the microwave oven so that he door latch fingers can slip in and activate the control switches easily all at the same time - straighten the switch frame which may require you to remove the switch bank temporarily. The little bit of grease still doesn't hurt to do it.
Reassemble.

Nissan pathfinder rear door won't open


I have had this issue twice on my '98 Pathfinder. The hinge inside the exterior door latch rusts over time and sticks. As suggested in some other answers, the BEST way to get it open is as follows: Pull the latch open and spray WD-40 into the handle openings using the spray tube that came with the WD-40. You may need to repeat this. Note, when I use the word 'latch', I'm talking about the part you pull to open the door, not the lock, which is a separate part inside the door connected to the latch by a metal rod.

There are many ways to then hit the latch to jar the stuck hinge loose. To prevent damage, I folded up an old dish towel, placed it over the latch, and pounded it with medium force with a rubber mallet. It may take just a few hits, or it could take literally hundreds. Initially, the exterior latch will flop loosely. You can see if you're making progress by checking the latch periodically. It will gradually start to break loose and this will be reflected in restored tension in the previously floppy latch. The longer you hit, the tension will eventually be felt through the whole range of motion in the latch. Once full tension is restored, it will open the door.

The first time I did this repair, I simply considered it fixed and stopped working on it. Big mistake, because the locks stuck again in just a couple months and took a lot more work to get open the second time. These latches are cheap and easy to replace (check rockauto.com or other sites - I got my new latches for $12 each).

You must be VERY careful when changing them, otherwise you'll be opening up the door, which isn't necessary if you do it right. To change the latch - remove the two grommets from the door jamb at the latch. Use a 10mm nutdriver to remove the two nuts holding the latch. Care must be taken not to drop the nuts inside the door, but the nuts are angled slightly upward, so gravity is on your side.

Next, CAREFULLY pull the latch out of the door the minimum amount necessary to clear the opening and expose the latch rod that runs from the latch to the lock. IMPORTANT: Before removing the rod from the latch, get a pair of small locking pliers (long hemostat or needle nose vise grips) and attach it to the rod about 1/2" below the latch to hold it in place. This is necessary because once you remove the two nuts holding the latch to the door and the nylon grommet that attaches the rod to the latch, the only thing holding the rod in place is gravity. If you lift the rod more than about 1" while doing this work, it will disengage from the lock inside the door. I learned this the hard way on my first door and actually dropped the rod to the very bottom inside the door. Once the rod is secured with pliers, remove the rod from the nylon retainer clip on the latch and pull the latch free from the door. Installation of the new latch is the opposite procedure.

The second door was a breeze to fix since I didn't have to remove the door panel to retrieve the rod - the whole replacement took less than 10 minutes.

is the door latch mechanism moving and moving far enough to release the latch to open the door,you can`t remove the the striker plate from inside a panel as the bolts that hold the plate go in from the open side of the door jam,these do have a problem with the doors coming off the rails which mean that if this is the problem then the weight of the door will hinder the door from opening you may have to hit the door hard at the latch end of the door or even pry the door open at the same end to get the latch to pop open.the latch may even be seized or just jammed closed. good luck

Dishwasher mdc4650aww door latch very hard to open, replacement part


If the door latch mechanism is the only problem, (Meaning: although the door may be hard to open, it otherwise still works) you may only need to replace the latch and handle. The part number is 99003347 for the latch, and W10130694 for the handle. You can view a complete illustrated parts list at any of the following websites:

searspartsdirect.com
pcappliancepartspros.com
appliancepartspros.com

Just enter the model number you provided and locate items 3 and 5 under the "Control Panel" heading. If the switch itself is damaged, the part number is 99002751 and is listed as item 4.

To replace the latch, all you have to do is follow these steps:

1. Turn off the main power to the dishwasher. Dangerous voltage is still present inside even with the unit turned off.

2. Open the door and loosen the screws on the inner door panel that hold the operator console in place. NOTE: You may have to loosen some of the lower panel screws as well to accommodate getting the control panel free.

3. With the screws removed, you should be able to remove the control panel and access the door latch and handle.

If you have any questions about this repair, please post back and let me know. I hope this helps you.

How do I set the oven to self clean


The oven door must be closed and all controls set correctly for the cycle to work properly. After a Clean Cycle You may notice some white ash in the oven. Wipe it up with a damp cloth after the oven cools. If white spots remain, remove them with a soap- filled scouring pad and rinse thoroughly with a vinegar and water mixture. These deposits are usually a salt residue that cannot be removed by the clean cycle. If the oven is not clean after one clean cycle, repeat the cycle.
You cannot set the oven for cooking until
the oven is cool enough for the door to unlock.
While the oven is self-cleaning, you can
touch the TIMER/CLOCK pad to display the time of day.
To return to the clean
countdown, touch the COOKING TIME pad.
If the shelves become hard to slide,
apply a small amount of vegetable oil or cooking oil to a paper towel and wipe the edges of the oven shelves with the paper towel.

Using the self-cleaning oven.

How to Delay the Start of Cleaning

Make sure the clock shows the correct time of day. If your model has a latch, latch the door. Touch the SELF CLEAN pad. Using the + or or the number pads, enter the desired clean time. Touch the DELAY START pad. The earliest start time you can set will appear in the display. Using the + or or the number pads, enter the time of day you want the clean cycle to start.

Can I clean a TruTemp oven with soap and water without ruining it?


Hi,

Yes you could clean it.

Check few details :-

t the bottom of this post you will find the web address for your ranges manual and the self clean system is in side this manual.

How to self clean

If your model has a door latch, never force the latch handle. Forcing the handle will damage the door lock mechanism.
The oven door must be closed and all controls set correctly for the cycle to work properly.
Before a Clean Cycle
For the first self-clean cycle, we recommend
venting your kitchen with an open window
or using a ventilation fan or hood.
Remove any broiler pan, broiler grid, all
cookware, probe and any aluminum foil
from the oven—they cannot withstand the
high cleaning temperatures.
NOTE:
If your oven is equipped with nickel oven
shelves, remove them before you begin
the self-clean cycle.

If your oven is equipped with gray
porcelain-coated oven shelves, they may
be left in the oven during the self-clean
cycle.
Soil on the front frame of the range and
outside the gasket on the door will need to
be cleaned by hand. Clean these areas with
hot water, soap-filled scouring pads or
cleansers such as Soft Scrub®. Rinse well
with clean water and dry.
Do not clean the gasket. The fiberglass
material of the oven door gasket cannot
withstand abrasion. It is essential for the
gasket to remain intact. If you notice it
becoming worn or frayed, replace it.
Wipe up any heavy spillovers on the oven
bottom.
Make sure the oven light bulb cover is in
place and the oven light is off.
IMPORTANT: The health of some birds
is extremely sensitive to the fumes given
off during the self-cleaning cycle of any
range. Move birds to another well ventilated
room.

NOTE: Use caution when opening the upper
oven after the self-clean cycle has ended.
The oven may still be hot.


How to Set the Upper Oven for Cleaning
On models with Gas/Control Lockout,
touch and hold the Gas/Control Lockout
pad for 3 seconds to turn it off.
NOTE: The surface burners must be turned
off prior to the self-clean start time.
If your model has a latch, latch the door.
Touch the Self Clean pad.
Using the number pads, enter the
desired clean time, if a time other than
4 hours is needed.
Clean cycle time is normally 4 hours. You can
change the clean time to any time between
3 hours and 5 hours, depending on how dirty
your oven is.
Touch the Start pad.
On models without a door latch, the door
locks automatically. The display will show
the clean time remaining. It will not be
possible to open the oven door until the
temperature drops below the lock
temperature and the LOCKED DOOR
light goes off.
The oven shuts off automatically when the
clean cycle is complete.
When the LOCKED DOOR light is off,
slide the latch handle to the left as far
as it will go and open the door. If your
range does not have a latch, the door
will unlock automatically.
The words LOCK DOOR will flash and
the oven control will signal if you set
the clean cycle and forget to close the
oven door or forget to latch the door
on models with a latch.
To stop a clean cycle, touch the Clear/Off
pad. When the LOCKED DOOR light goes
off, indicating the oven has cooled below
the locking temperature, unlatch the door
(on models with a latch) and open the door

ELECTRIC DOOR LOCKS ONLY LOCK SOME TIMES


if you hit the lock button a couple times, will it finally lock?

If so, then you will need to take door cover off and lube up the connectors as they probably got corroded.

I have a cuisinart automatic grind and brew thermal coffee machine. Soemtimes, during brewing, the container holding the grinds pops open and the still brewing coffee pours everywhere.


On mine the door that holds the ground coffee in place at times doesn't latch properly either and then the it will pop loose. I have to close it fairly hard in order to get it to latch and I test the latch by pushing on the door to see if comes open. When properly latched it will only open via the little button on the side, not by jiggling the door.
