Door switch The door switch is important because, if it's defective, the dishwasher won't work at all. To reach it, you need to remove the control panel cover, or sometimes the interior liner of the door. If it's defective, you need to completely replace it.


Latch The latch on many dishwashers is adjustable. If your door is easy to close but difficult to latch, adjust the latch to let the door close more easily. If you can't see any way to adjust the latch, yours may be fixed in a certain position. Check for other reasons for the latching problem. If the latch has worn out in a way that makes it impossible for you to close the door properly, you probably need to replace the latch.

The machine keeps stopping mid rinse cycle, can u help please?


Most washers have a door switch that stops the spin cycle when the door is open. Find the door switch and try to manually engage it. If you can hear a click and the washer starts again, the switch is probably OK. There is something not letting it engage. I have replaced mine for around $30.00 by watching a video on youtube. Put in the Make & Model # & lid switch in the search bar and see if there is a video. If not, you can get good advice at your local appliance store.Good Luck!

The lights will blink when the door is closed and the start button is pushed


Try a reset. I have a kitchenaid. The reset is to press the sani-rinse, hea-dry, sani-rinse, heat -dry, then close the door. You can hear action the dishwasher doing something. Takes about 2-3 minutes, then stops. At this point I was able to select a wash cycle and start, close the door, and it started. Good luck

Just bang the door again until the error goes away. The door is not lined up and won't latch properly. At least that is what ours does. I usually slam the door on my machine.
