The door latch and or door handle assembly which also holds the door switch may have brocken.

If the door latch does not shut properly, this will not close your door micro switch. And if the switch is not closed then the machine will not operate.

Turn off machine at the power source. Open the dishwasher door. You may want to put some weight on the door to stop it from springing back up.

If you have a star allen key or a star shaped tool, you can open the screws around the stainless steel plate of the dishwasher door. Start with the ones on top, which secure the control panel and door lock. See if you can remove the control panel gently without having to open the screws for the front door panel. Sometimes you may need to loosen the front panel screws to free the top control panel.

Once you remove the panel, you will notice a door handle assembly which also holds the micor switch. Take note of how it is set up. Also examie to see if any plastic parts are broken. You may need to order the complete door latch or door handle assembly and replace.

While doing this make sure the machine is turned off at the power source.

Good luck.

The front door won't close, due to washer lock mechanism restricting door close.


Thank you for your inquiry, kh57ca!

From what you are describing it sounds like the door latch assembly needs to be replaced. This is not a simple DIY job though. I would recommend seeking guidance from a professional technician to properly replace the door latch to avoid any future issues. Some of these intricate parts require precision and patience, therefore when replacing such components or removing them from your appliance, I would suggest seeking professional assistance. I hope this has been beneficial. -Matt

RE: Miele dishwasher G1472 The door will not close. Does the lock work with a relay, or is just the plastic lock broken down? I should like to have a repair manual of this machine. Where can I find it?


Sorry mate - manuals are hard to come by from miele, only service agents have these and are bound by contractual obligations.
there is a door locking plate located mid top of the dishwasher which latches to the door, a locking mech. # 6022271 located on the door itself.
The locking mech is electrically controlled only when cycles are selected and you push start. The chances are where the latch system which clicks into the mech is likely to be worn or jammed, the door should click into place as you close it and electrically locked during the cycle.
I would say there is a mechanical problem with the machine more so than anything else.

My machine is showing the code FL machine has problems locking. How do I resolve this problem


Your Maytag Neptune Washing Machine displays error codes, also called "help codes," to identify specific problems with your washer. Once you close your Maytag Neptune's door, the machine locks the door, goes through the selected wash cycles and unlocks the door when the laundry is finished. Error codes appear when there are problems with the door, the inflow and drainage of water and the motor.
The "FL" code indicates that the washing machine was unable to lock the door after you closed it. Open and close the door tightly, then restart the washing cycle.

Door won't lock


If the interlock isn't working it may not allow the machine to start. If you can open the door when it should be locked it's probably a faulty interlock.......Nomess

Door lock mechanism


I had this problem also with my Maytag Neptune TL. The door lock would click muptiple times before displaying the FL code. I was able to fix this by removing the left door look(the one with the door close sensor) and cleaning the 2 metal pones on top of the left door mechanism, which had rusted and no longer was able to since the door closed. I use a nail file i sure eaither that or sandpaper will do. After that it went through the whole cylce without stopping or displaying the "FL" code.......hope this helps

It is saying there is a problem with your door Lock. when you close the door does it hold like it use too? try to open and close the door if it doesn't really close properly then you will just need a door latch. If the machine gives you an f11 code then its the main computer board that can also give your the door lock error. I would check the door first though.
