Re: Cant open the door

Under the unit you can access the leveling mechanism for the legs. Try adjusting the levelers so the unit is lowered. Do so a little at a time and try to keep the unit leveled from left to right as you lower it. This may take tension off of the latch and help you get the door open.

Dishwasher Model LSV66 - door will not open

There is probably something broken with the latch mechanism as it is mostly made of plastic.

Safety first, ensure mains is off to dishwasher!

Your best chance of opening - Method one - first you need to understand how the latch works. In LSV66, the latch is right at the top, centre above the door handle and the ariston logo; you cant see any of these unless you have it opened - so try to imagine the mechanism as I describe; the door side is a tongue while on the dishwasher side it is a D-shape loop - at locked position, the tongue is inserted into the loop from below. So to pick it, use a coat hanger wire, bend it into L-shape. The problem is you need to slide this between the door and presumedly your worktop and slide it to the middle, learn where the latch is initially - the hard part is you need to slide the L-shape tip as close as possible the the door side, the tip should come in from sideway sp that you are trying to slide the tip arm of the L-shape underneath the d-loop and to unhook it is to flick the d-loop with upward turn and NOT downward since it loops over the tongue from top. Method two - assume you are confused about method one or simply cant slide the L-shape between the tongue and d-loop, the next best way is to pry the latch open, here you run a small risk of breaking the d-loop but you can easily buy a replacement spare - to pry open the door, use a sturdy tool if you dont have a suitable size crow bar - a robust screwdriver could do. You need to pry it close to the latch to get good fulcrum power, so approach middle above the logo between door and worktop - you are likely to scratch the top edge of the door but again this part is concealable when the door is shut so wont be too cosmetically bad.
Once opened, unscrew the top panel from inner door, you will find the latch mechanism which I assume something is broken - replace this by buying a spare - usually cost around £20.

Good luck.

Ariston dish washer door will not shut properly.

Check that something has not got wedged behind the top basket stopping it closing fully.If that is ok what can happen is that if there is something causing the door not closing fully ,when you try to close door to do a wash instead of the little hook actuator in the door switch fully engaging with the clasp on the body of unit,it closes down before it engages.It is like a finger hooking over say the top of your trousers.If you turn power off and get 2 small screwdrivers and carefully put them either side of the hook on door then try to bring it back to its open position.

Hope this helps.

My dishwasher doesnt start

1) Ensure the dishwasher is turned off. 2) (may not apply) Turn the plastic blue lever located under the sink to the vertical position (this opens the valve, so water can go into the dishwasher) 3) Pour powder indo the dishwasher 4) Turn the dishwasher controller to the top position (the 12 o?clock position) ? this is the eco-setting. 5) Press the on/power button on the dishwasher, so that it now turned on (a light will display) 6) Move the dishwasher controller to the ?R? position (it?s on the very left), and leave it there a second or two. 7) Move the dishwasher controller back to the eco-setting (the 12 o?clock position

Door Tension Adjustment on Electrolux Dishwasher

you should be able to remove the lower acess panel, and the tension springs are on both sides, cant really picture how to adjust tension( font or back), but there should be enough room to get a flashlight and you hands under there to make the adjustment

open the dishwasher and look at the top of the chassis, where the door catch is. You'll see 2 screws with hexagonal heads, one on either side of the catch. Turning these screws will apply or reduce tension on a wire liked to a spring on either side of the door. Tension must be equal on both sides.
